On the Road Again Sunday April 13, 2014 Links

Loads of Jays and MLB links for your weekend reading amusement.

Opening Weekend Links April 6, 2014

Dickey Trumps Yanks and other Jays news.

Au Revoir Spring Training 2014, Sunday Links

The series in Montreal turned out well for both the Jays and Montreal... not so much the Mets. Today is an off day before the Jays take on the Rays and their Voodoo Curse.

Bittersweet Symphony Saturday March 29, 2014 Links

In two days, baseball games will actually matter and the bitterly debated inaction of the offseason will fade into the collective fanbase memory as a speed bump on the way to a successful season or something worse.

March Madness Madness Weekend Links

Here we go!  Last week of spring training as the team goes thru its final tune ups in Florida and a bunch of links that won't include "best shape of his life." Two real games have already been...

Pride And Prejudice Sunday March 9, 2014 Links

For a guy who is desperate for an MLB contract, Ervin Santana has an odd way of showing it. He's decided to play the baseball equivalent of a female character from a Jane Austen novel and play off the O's and Jays till someone breaks down in tears

Santana Watch 2014! Gimme your deal, make it real

According to John Heyman it is now down to the Jays and O's with the Jays offering a 1 yr no incentive laden contract at $14 million while according to a reporter named Dionisio Soldevila, an AL team is rumored to have signed Ervin Santana for 1/14.

What Time Is It? Why It's Spring Training Links

The good news is that the Jays are now playing baseball so we fans can focus on the games and not the tumultuous offseason which disappointed many. The bad news is that Scott Boras is still acting like a bad Jaystalk Caller.

Boras And the Jays

Did you know that one of the first ever teams he dealt with was the Jays and his first client was Bill Caudill? I didn't. This goes to explain a lot about the frosty relations between the Jays and Boras (and I don't blame the Jays much for that.)

Go Canada Go Sunday Feb 22, 2014 Links and GDT

Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go! Go Canada Go!

Countdown to Spring Training Links Feb 16, 2014

Another week and Spring Training is almost here meaning that someone will be in the best shape of their lives. A whole pile of links today including how not to take a picture.

It's Always Snowing In Canada Sunday Feb 9 Links

It's getting close to spring training so there were a large amount of baseball related links to make. I'm happy as anyone after the slow offseason and the winter that goes on and on and on... WILL YOU STOP SNOWING!! I HAVE NO PLACE TO PUT MORE SNOW!

Toronto Blue Jays Offseason: Darkest Timeline?

According to Shi Davidi, Ian Kinsler and Brett Anderson would have been Blue Jays if deals hadn't gone south.

I Link Therefore I Am Saturday Jan 25, 2014 Links

The weekend links guy took much of the winter off (mostly because there wasn't much for him to link to.) As Tanaka-mania has swept into NYC, a tidal wave (relatively speaking) of unlinked links have popped up.

The Grinch Who Stole The Jays 2013 Season

Every Fan Down in Jaysland Liked the 2012 offseason a lot... But the Grinch,Who lived to the south and east of Jaysland, Did NOT! The Grinch hated the offseason! The whole dang offseason!

Merry Krampus Everyone! Saturday Dec 14 Links

It has been quite a busy and somewhat strange week. The best Jays pitcher retires as a Jay to the surprise of no one but the self centered Phillie media. Yankees are shocked that no one really wants to take the Yankees money or terms.

I Link Therefore I Am Saturday Nov 30, 2013 Links

Fortunately there hasn't been much going on in Jays land or someone might wonder why the weekend links guy isn't doing his job (real job getting in the way.)

Omar Infante and the Blue Jays: BBB Staff Picks

Bluebird Banter writers were asked who they would pick if they could choose one free agent for the Blue Jays to sign. It is Damaso's Burnt Shirt's turn.

It's A Living Friday Nov 14, 2013 Links

Rumors and lies dominate the Toronto baseball scene which is pretty much in the back pages with the obits as Hockey and who/what Rob Ford likes to eat dominate the news. I promise only baseball related links.

Flu Friday Nov 8, 2013 Links

A brief pile of links for your reading amusement while sick with the flu.

I Link Therefore I am Sunday Nov 3, 2013 Links

A brief links post of stuff around the world of baseball and sport.

Mid Week Sausage Links Oct 23, 2013

Here is a bunch of links some recent and others collected for weekend links posts that didn't happen because I was out West for a close friend's wedding this weekend.

I Link Therefore I am Saturday Oct 12, 2013 Links

Various links from the post season and as the Jays try to figure out what to do after the horror show of 2013.

Breaking Sad Friday Oct 4, 2013 Links

Here is a brief bunch of links for your reading amusement.

Jays 7, Rays 2 Wild Cards Wild

A stumbling injury prone mostly AAA lineup team with questionable starting pitching who fall apart against guys wearing Rays jerseys beat that very same Ray jersey wearing wild card contending "They Play The Game The Right Way" team.

No Tanks For the Errors Saturday Sept 28 Links

But I thought the Rays played the right way! They usually do (and have the luck demons on their side), but even the Rays are bound to have a bad night. R.A. Dickey's final start of the season was much better than his first start.

Baseballs are Jays Seeking Missiles Sept 27 Links

Another loss and another Jays injured. All in a days work for our struggling and limping 2013 jays. Thankfully there are only 3 more games to play before the 2013 season ends mercifully as there aren't many survivors remaining on the roster.

The Rage of Kawasaki Sunday September Links

You think Mune's all fun and games being the resident goof? Nope. The man wants to win. I'm starting to like this guy more.

Pitching Is Magic Friday Sept 20, 2013 Links

The 2nd last weekend of the season. In Boston. I thought this would have been a sort of meaningless series with one team already clinching a playoff spot while the other tries to think about next...
