What's Love But What Shows Up In the Dark? 9/7 Game Thread, Red Sox at Jays

Yesterday wasn't the most fun Jays game, was it? Luis Perez has done a decent job out of the bullpen and as swingman for the Jays this season but I'm not sure I see the point in giving him many...


We're Gonna Make It Yet To The End of the Road: 9/1 Game Thread, Jays at Baltimore

From the Land of Pleasant Living: Jays at Baltimore, 8/31 Game Thread

One more after the jump.  Feel free to post your own Jays photos in the comments, and thanks to Tom and Carm for the Jays duds!    

I Seek to Understand Me


Quick diversion from the draft just for a moment.  Craig made this point in a comment in a thread earlier today and I think it's important enough to talk about some more, not because it is wrong --...

I Was Carried to Ohio In a Swarm of Bees - 6/1 Game Thread, Cleveland at Toronto

Overflow Game Thread - 5/31 - Cleveland at Jays

Things not going great for the Jays at the moment.


Come And Look at Both of Our Buildings: 5/31, Cleveland at Jays

Hi everyone.  Today's title comes from these two amazing "hastily made tourism videos"  about the City of Cleveland, a city I have come to know all too well over the years (I had a case there).  If...

Interview With Anthony Gose


Bus Leagues Baseball do their usual spectacular job with this nice long interview with Anthony Gose - they chat about the New England weather, success on the basepaths, what it's like to play for Sal Fasano, and what makes a big leaguer. Great stuff, fellas.

No One's Getting Out Without Stadium Love: 5/1 Minor League Recap


Las Vegas lost to Sacramento, 5-4: Travis Snider was 4-4 with a walk and a double.   Nothing left to do in the minors. That was it for extra base-hits.   Brad Mills, by the way, had another great...

Publish My Love: Blue Jays 4/26 Minor League Recap


Two ugly games and one good one.  Las Vegas was thumped by Colorado Springs, 17-3: Brett Cecil's start was an umitigated disaster.  Cecil gave up 11 runs (10 earned) on 13 hits (3 of which were...

If It Weren't For Disappointment I Wouldn't Have Any Appointments: 4/24 Minor League Recap


Quick one today, as only two of our affiliates played.  They both lost, and the combination of the lack of games and the lack of wins made me think of the old They Might Be Giants song (Snowball in...

You Will Be Replaced By the New Kid: 4/23 Minor League Roundup

Do You Ever Want to Run: 4/13 Getaway Game Thread, Jays at Seattle

So, the first two games of this series have not gone as planned.  First, the bullpen let us down; the next day it was the lineup.  That's baseball, and today the Jays have a chance to strike back...

Should Words Serve the Truth? : Angels 6, Jays 5 (14 Inn.)


Insanity.  Utter insanity.  We wuz robbed.   On the Mound: It wasn't a good start for Brett Cecil.  Brett was throwing strikes, but made a couple of costly mistakes with pitches up.  More worrying,...

Fangraphs Breaks Down Drabek's First Start


Pull quote: "We talked about the fastball and curveball above, but it looked like his best weapon from this weekend was a cut-fastball. A few scouting types- including Ben Badler of Baseball America- talked about the cutter’s effectiveness throughout the afternoon. The pitch had enough movement to be mistakenly classified as a curveball according to’s pitch f/x data. Even Denard Span noted how ridiculous the pitch was after the game, adding the Twins were lucky they did not get no-hit for the entire game."
