We are running really good. The record is a result of VG pitching and basically just owning the 7th inning onwards.. Lots of runs scored and not many allowed.

But, the pitching cant run this good all year and the runs wont come if Travis and Martin don't hit and if Donaldson is out for a while. I do like what Granderson has done and Pearce is looking good. Diaz has some pop and Solarte can contribute. Grichuk has been disappointing.

Re: Toronto Blue Jays: AL BEast Champions

The youth of this team is looking good. I hope Tulo just stays perpetually injured so he isn't a distraction. I see no value in him at this point whatsoever.

Yuli Gurriel on his brother Lourdes Jr., who was called up to the Blue Jays from Double-A: “Don’t want to give him too much pressure, but he hits better than me, runs better than me and plays better than me defensively.”

Re: Toronto Blue Jays: AL BEast Champions

This is fun

Josh hurt
Smoak .228 (though a decent OBP)
Morales .229
Martin .140
Travis .130
Grichuk .086

And we be 14-8....

We have lost maybe 1 game we should have won, and won many we should have lost.

Gotta love it.

We just need to get some regs rolling before the run good goes away.

Re: Toronto Blue Jays: AL BEast Champions

At some point Gibby can't give Grichuk any more ABs, and some point has arrived. We have too many other mix and match options for the outfield.

Re: Toronto Blue Jays: AL BEast Champions

So Josh is back, but instead of having him stay in Florida (where the jays will be on Friday), they bring him up to Cleveland for one day for a double-header in crappy weather. Seems odd.

Oh, and whatever he had is all better now...(we all hope)...

Anyone else think that Teoscar Hernandez is a little complacent and awkward out in LF or RF?. He seems to be in no rush to get to the ball, and also takes some bad routes. Really looks both lazy (or no sense of urgency) and unpolished in the field. I noticed that last September but thought maybe I was just being hard on the new guy, but this year I see the same. I keep wanting to say "move your ass" when something goes near him, lol

Re: Toronto Blue Jays: AL BEast Champions

Rebuild time....

Probably not a bad thing, but we are done for 3 or 4 years (at least). If Josh gets healthy he can be put on the market as a rental and we might get something.

Next year we have Martin, Tulo and Morales eating 54M (in 2020 just Tulo at 14M).


2019 Starting Lineup

Guerrero 3B (or too soon??)
Gurriel SS (maybe??)
Travis 2B ( Call me optimistic)
Smoak 1B (at only 6M should be a good deal)
Hernandez (LF)
Pillar (CF) arbitartion
RF ?
DH?
Martin/Maile? (pre arbitration) (C)

If we could get Granderson for 5M again that would be a nice spare part and veteran to have.

Pitching
Stroman (arbitration)
Sanchez (arbitration)

Osuna (arbitration)
Oh (2.5M team option seems good for us)
Tepara (arbitration)

$$ Baggage

Martin (untradeable at 20M, even if we ate 12M or so)
Tulo (glass boat at 20M)
GIDP Morales (slow boat who cant see with or without glasses 14M)

Question marks

Happ (Free Agent and will probably be gone)
Estrada (Free Agent and will probably be gone)
Solarte (has a 5.5M team option)
Diaz (pre-arbitration)
Grichuk... see ya later..
Axford and Clippard are free agents
Pearce (free agent)
Garcia (10M team option probably wont get offered)
Loup is a free agent (see ya)

Thoughts on what we might look like in 2018-2022??

Vlad jr. is now batting .425 in AA. Can't see him staying there much longer.

#BlueJays prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hits a 2-run Home Run for New Hampshire (his 11th of the season).

He's now batting .433 with a .728 slugging percentage.
meanwhile, Russ is playing 3B today...
