BLUE JAYS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Being in the Zone: Is It Sustainable?

Think back for a moment to the July 4th game in Oakland where the Blue Jays lost 1-0 in 12 innings and left ten runners on base. Steve Tolleson just led off the top of the 5th with a double. What do you think the next three hitters were thinking? Were they fretting over failure in this situation, or were they calm and focused in the batters box, totally relaxed and confident? When...

Colby Rasmus, Enigma

The Toronto Blue Jays season is a two-part story. What began as a pleasant surprise quickly descended into a lucid, waking nightmare. Two Blue Jays’ outfielders heading into free agency embody each of those characteristics. While Melky Cabrera is putting together a brilliant platform season before heading to free-agency, Colby Rasmus seems to have spent all […]

WATCH: Mike Napoli crushes home run into upper deck

Mike Napoli nearly sent a baseball back across the border Tuesday. Napoli absolutely pulverized a three-run homer in the 11th inning of the Boston Red Sox’s 11-7 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. The blast, which landed in the fifth deck, traveled an estimated 452 feet. Napoli’s home run is only the 17th ever hit into the fifth deck at Rogers Centre, according...

Does window sex equal winning for Blue Jays?

There have been plenty of theories floated through the years about why the Blue Jays have not been in the post-season since 1993. We’ll give you another one — not enough sex. Hey, we don’t mean the players and, on that topic, we have no idea of how they’re doing. We mean the fans, the exhibitionists that used to go at it in the centre-field windows of the hotel — now...

Blue Jays recall OF Pillar, cut OF Reimold

TORONTO (AP) The Blue Jays have recalled outfielder Kevin Pillar from Triple-A Buffalo and designated outfielder Nolan Reimold for assignment. Pillar was promoted Tuesday, the same day he was picked for the International League postseason All-Star team. Pillar was sent to the minors on June 25, one day after he threw his bat down the dugout steps after being pulled for a pinch-hitter...

Nolan Reimold designated for assignment, Kevin Pillar recalled

Did you know that the Blue Jays acquired Nolan Reimold back on July 6? It has not felt like a month-and-a-half since that waiver claim. Of course, he had a stint on the disabled list four games into his tenure here (beating the one-game stint of Cole Gillespie) so he ended up playing just 22 games for the Blue Jays. It was a fairly unspectacular 22 games that had him hit .212/.283...

Omar Vizquel Tries Out For Tigers Shortstop Position

OK, so it wasn't a full-blown tryout on the part of Omar Vizquel, but I wouldn't blame the Tigers for at least entertaining the idea of trying to coax the 47 year-old coach into maybe possibly playing a few games to give the Tigers a possible boost out of position that has combined to produce 0.6 fWAR between Eugenio Suarez, Andrew Romine, Danny Worth and Alex Gonzalez...

Can The Blue Jays Afford To Keep Handing Ball To Casey Janssen?

The Toronto Blue Jays are desperate for wins with each passing day as they slip further out of contention in the American League wild-card race. Manager John Gibbons needs to field the best possible lineup from here on out in an attempt to win games. Unfortunately for Gibbons his proven reliable closer Casey Janssen has been anything but since the All-Star break and begs the question...

Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons Rips ‘Marked Man’ Jose Bautista For Ejection

It’s not often that a manager takes the umpire’s side in an argument involving one of his best players. However, that’s exactly what Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons did Sunday. Gibbons wasn’t very pleased when Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was ejected by home plate umpire Bill Welke in the sixth inning for arguing balls and strikes. Bautista, who took a borderline...

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was not happy with Jose Bautista getting himself ejected

The Toronto Blue Jays are making a final push to make it to the playoffs. So you know the pressure is probably very intense right now. Emotions and frustration boiled over after yesterday’s loss against the Tampa Bay Rays. In the sixth inning, Jose Bautista was ejected from the game for arguing about the strike zone. Well, this didn’t go over well with manager John Gibbons and...

Rays protest game after controversial replay decison

It’s safe to say Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon isn’t a fan of Major League Baseball’s replay system at the moment. Maddon protested Saturday afternoon’s Rays game against the Toronto Blue Jays after a controversial replay challenge in the fourth inning. During the frame, first base umpire Bill Welke initially called Rays outfielder Will Myers safe after an attempted...

It’s Not Over Yet For The Toronto Blue Jays

Melky Cabrera and Jose Reyes need to remain hot for the Blue Jays the rest of the way I may sound like a massive homer and extremely loyal to the Toronto Blue Jays but as crazy as it may sound, do not right the 2014 season off just yet. As things sit on the 21st of August they remain 4.5 back of the Detroit Tigers and 4.0 back of the Seattle Mariners in the chase for the second...

Former Blue Jays pitcher Jesse Litsch retires

Getty Images Jesse Litsch announced on Thursday that he was retiring form baseball. The 29-year-old right hander carved out a five year career as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays from 2007 to 2011 compiling a 27-27 record, 4.16 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. I hate to have to do this but I am announcing my retirement from playing the game that I love today but hopefully able to stay in the...

Toronto Blue Jays suing Creighton over logo

The Toronto Blue Jays came out of left field (pun definitely intended) with a lawsuit against the Creighton Bluejays.  They are alleging that Creighton began using the Blue Jay (or Bluejays) logo in September of 2013, and that it has and will continue to damage, “cause confusion, cause mistake, and deceive the trade and public, who [&hellip (Visited 8 times, 8 visits today...

Jose Reyes unveils bold new dyed hairstyle

Say whatever you want about Jose Reyes’ new hairstyle, but I’d be willing to bet he is the only person in professional sports who has it. When the Toronto Blue Jays shortstop was wearing a hat over the weekend, it may not have looked like he was hiding some sort of exotic hairstyle. When he […]
