Jays suck at hitting fastballs

5

27th in the majors on AVG on fastballs. How does a team with a hitting coach who says nothing but 'look for the fastball' get in this state? Did Colby's dad call up Brett Lawrie in the offseason and tell him to stay back on the curveball?

A's claim Encarnacion

Looks like we won't have to non-tender him after all.

Rios claimed on trade waivers

+

Olney is reporting that someone has claimed Rios. The first try at waivers is revocable, so the Jays can pull him back, work out a trade with the claiming team, or give his contract to them. Rios has a full NTC, but I don't think that affects waiver claims.

In 2008, the Jays' payroll in Canadian dollars (valued at the start of the preceding offseason) was about $100MM. In 2009, the Jays' payroll in canadian dollars (valued at the start of the...

ESPN actually wrote a story about a Jay? I'm keeping my eye out for horsemen.

Why bother pinch hitting?

4

Dave Cameron thinks we're successful in part because we don't pinch hit, considering how poorly pinch hitters have been hitting.

Lineup Optimization

I know we had a fanpost about two months ago about what our lineup would probably look like, but Sky Kalkman has a hub for what each team's lineup should look like, and we haven't joined in yet.

Glaus/Rolen trade looks better for Jays

17

If you had to pick one of the players in this deal to miss 3 months following arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder, you'd have picked Rolen, right? But you'd have been wrong.

RISP

We all know about the team's poor performance with RISP, to the order of a .234 AVG (although perhaps we didn't notice our opponents' even worse performance, a mere .225). But who's really to...

2008 tentative home schedule is out

and it's pretty bad, although not "no weekend home series vs. Red Sox or Yankees" bad. The Jays have 3 wraparound series, all in the first two months. Also, the Jays only face the Rangers twice at...

Glaus is slugging 155 points better on grass this year vs. on turf (.533 vs. .388). His turf numbers are inflated by the period in April before he got put on the DL for the aforementioned spurs....

Pitchers need your support

I thought I'd go through and add up how many runs the jays score in games started by each of the starters who've started more than a handful of games.

That'll prove Sparrow wrong

If the Jays were hoping to prove to Josh Towers that they come to the ballpark prepared to win every day, they did a pretty poor job of it.
