Toronto Blue Jays Opinions

Wednesday Bantering


Back from a weekend of good music, made that much more enjoyable because the Blue Jays were winning. I saw a lot of bands i'd like to see again. Jason Isbell,  Lee Harvey Osmond, The Lone Bellow,...

Do you approve of the job Anthopoulos is doing?


We did this back in May, when things were going well, though we had just lost 3 games in a row, but all-in-all, the team was playing good ball. Back then the results were 29% approve, 41% neutral,...

Will Cabrera and Rasmus be back next year?

Blue Jays stories of the season's first half


We've played 81 games now, half a season, and I thought that we should take a look at what the major story lines have been for the Blue Jays. Blue Jays are in first place. Of course this is the...

whatever doesn't kill you, makes you... Stranger


I'm going to repost something that JohnnyG wrote 3 years ago...It seems appropos now. I feel the same way tonight that Johnny did  then: angry. Now, I'm totally hoping that Edwin Encarnacion...

2014 MLB Draft Day Two Open Thread

Do you approve of the job John Gibbons is doing?


We did this a few days ago, on Alex Anthopoulos, unfairly after the team had lost 3 games in a row. The results:  29% approved  41% were neutral 30% did not approve  With John Gibbons?...

On Liam Hendriks, spot starter candidate


When I spoke with Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos last Friday he was more than willing to dish out complements towards Liam Hendriks. In my mind it cannot be a coincidence that he made...

Who is the 'team to beat' in the AL East?


I thought I'd ask if you folks had changed your minds about who is the 'team to beat' in the AL East? With the Blue Jays bouncing around .500, you'd think we'd be falling back in the AL East but...


Alex Anthopoulos approval poll


Maybe it is unfair to run an approval poll when the team has lost three games in a row, but I am curious at what people think of Alex Anthopoulos. Alex was like a breath of fresh air when he was...

What to do with Dustin McGowan?


How long do we go with a starter that tires at 60 pitches?

Is the bullpen overworked?


A lot has been made of how overworked the Blue Jays bullpen is, especially after a couple of blowups in the past week. Aaron Loup had a bad time of it yesterday, and all I had in my twitter feed...

What to do if Adam Lind has to go on the DL?


This doesn't sound good: Lind compared the soreness to what he dealt with in 2011-12. Went on DL both years, hopes to avoid that this time but too early to say. — Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) A...

Off day question


The Blue Jays played 13 games, sitting at 7-6, in a 3 way tie for first with the Yankees and Rays. Last year we were 6-7 at this point, 2.5 games behind Boston (we'd never be that close again). It...

Who is your pick for Jay comeback player?


Do you think the Jays lead the league in potential 'comeback player of the year' candidates? I was thinking that this morning. The list: Drew Hutchison. Well, I'm not too sure on Drew, he had...

Tuesday Bantering: Jonathan Diaz, managers


So who had Jonathan Diaz as the first infield call up this year? I'm not really thrilled with Diaz coming up....if he and Ryan Goins are both in the lineup, we are punting two spots on offense....
