Bassitt Speaks Out: Is the *PITCH CLOCK* the reason why pitchers like Spencer Strider are Injured?

4/16/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays get a huge divisional win against the New York Yankees and are above 500 for the first time of the season. The Hound of the Mound did what he does best again, giving up one run over six and a third innings of work. This offense is still a problem, having runners in scoring position with 0 outs for all the first three innings and only coming away with 3 runs. Chris Bassitt commented on the pitch clock and the pitching injuries, stating that the injuries are more on pitchers and team personnel than the pitch clock itself, which has had some interesting responses from fans around the league. Tim Mayza has struggled so far this season; we look to figure out the root cause of these struggles. The Blue Jays take on Carlos Rodon and the Yankees tomorrow in game 2 of the series, where the Toronto Blue Jays look to win their third series in a row.

With the Toronto Blue Jays having an off day on Thursday, we decided to break down the Blue Jays pitching staff and their performances so far in 2024. The start to the season has been a whirlwind for this group, being plagued with injuries in the early weeks of the season. From Electrifying, dominant starts to huge blow ups, the Blue Jays pitching staff has given you a little bit of everything to start the season. We analyze individual performances, who is HOT and who is NOT, and what this pitching staff might look like in coming days with reinforcements on the way.

Cal Raleigh Fires back at John Schneider: Drama Heats Up Between the Mariners and the Blue Jays.

4/11/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays drop the final game of the series to the Seattle Mariners in extra innings, 6-1. Yusei Kikuchi was electric on the mound today, striking out 8 of the first 10 batters on his way to throwing 6 innings of one-run ball. The only source of Blue Jays' offense in today’s game was Vladimir Guererro Jr, smashing a baseball 459 feet off Logan Gilbert, sitting in the top 5 as one of the farthest home runs Vladdy has ever hit in his career. After the loss, Cal Raleigh called out John Schneider about his comments about Raleigh and the Mariner's offense last season. Cal Raleigh has always been a thorn in the Blue Jays side, hitting 9 home runs in 15 games against the Blue Jays. Was what Cal Raleigh said about John Schneider justified? Will John Schneider respond? How will this impact future games against the Seattle Mariners?

Series Secured: Chris Bassitt Bangs And A Bo Bichette Blast In The Blue Jays Series Win Over Seattle

4/10/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays have won back-to-back games for the first time this season, taking the second game of the series against the Seattle Mariners 5-3. The Hound on the Mound got back to his dominant ways, throwing 6 and two-thirds innings of one-run ball, earning Bassitt his first quality start and win of the season. Bo Bichette launched his first home run of the season, smashing a low splitter into the left-center stands. Cavan Biggio and IKF also had productive days, each coming up with multiple hits against Mariners starter, George Kirby. The Toronto Blue Jays look for their first sweep of the season, and more importantly, continue to play well-rounded consistent baseball. Yusei Kikuchi will take the mound, looking to step on the throats of the Seattle Mariners and gain some momentum for this baseball team.

Slinging in Seattle: Jose Berrios is *DOMINANT* in another start as the Blue Jays soar past the Seattle Mariners.

4/9/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays get a stellar day from Jose Berrios once again and take the first game of the series against the Seattle Mariners 5-2. This was a complete game from the offense and defense, getting solid production from the starting pitching, the bullpen, and the entire lineup. Davis Schneider continued his success at the plate with a crucial two run single in the bottom of the third inning. Every Blue Jay got a hit today, other than George Springer. This is key for the Toronto Blue Jays if they want to be a world series contender, they will need consistent production throughout the lineup. Will the Toronto Blue Jays continue to score runs throughout this series? What did the Blue Jays do differently in this game to get offensive production?

Is it time to hit the *PANIC BUTTON* about the Toronto Blue Jays Offence

4/8/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays drop their second series in a row against the New York Yankees 2-1, ending the Blue Jays Road trip 4-6. This offense has been very underwhelming to start the season, hitting under 200 as a team through the first 10 games. Unfortunately, much of this series showed similarities to last season, with the Toronto Blue Jays lacking the ability to string hits together, hit with runners in scoring position and have timely hitting. The Toronto Blue Jays need to figure out how to drive runners in when they have the opportunities if they want to be a series contender in the MLB. Right now, they are sitting in the bottom third of the league in every offensive category. The Blue Jays look to win their first series of the year, hosting the Seattle Mariners in their home opener.

Will the Toronto Blue Jays *SCORE A RUN* against the New York Yankees?

4/5/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays are not going to win many games scoring two runs over three games, while getting 1-hit and no-hit in two out of three of those games. This offense needs to switch something up. Whether it is new personnel in the lineup, a change in approach or just being better hitters, the Blue Jays need to score more runs. Toronto Blue Jays fans have the right to be frustrated, as this was the same problem this team was having last season, and it has somehow gotten worse to start the season. Things do not get any easier as the Blue Jays head to New York to take on the Yankees. The Yankees are coming off a 2-1 series win against the Diamondbacks and swept the Astros in a 4-game set 5 days before they are set to take on the Toronto Blue Jays. What do the Blue Jays need to do to get some more production offensively? Do the Blue Jays have enough talent on this roster to compete for a World Series?

DAVIS *BABE* SCHNEIDER launches a Home Run for the win against the Houston Astros

4/3/2024
Davis Schneider saves the Toronto Blue Jays season with a 2-run home run in the top of the 9th inning. Schneider continues to break records, as that home run was the longest home run off a Josh Hader slider ever, hammering it 423 feet. Jose Berrios continues to be a huge asset for the Toronto Blue Jays, pitching a strong 6 innings and carving through this Houston Astros lineup. The Toronto Blue Jays are going to need to figure out their bats, as 2 runs in their last 18 innings is not going to provide this team with a lot of wins. The Blue Jays try to win the rubber match against the Astros tomorrow, with the Hound on the Mound, Chris Bassitt, pitching against Christian Javier.

The Toronto Blue Jays got NO-HIT by the Houston Astros…..

4/2/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays get no-hit by Ronel Blanco and the Houston Astros. After the Yankees beat up the Astros in the last 4 games, this is a tough pill to swallow for the Toronto Blue Jays. Bowden Francis got lit up by a pissed-off Astros lineup, going just over 5 innings and giving up 7 runs. The Blue Jays do the most Toronto Blue Jays thing ever and become the first team of 2024 to be no-hit. And now for the offensive highlights: George Springer walked twice. That is all. We did get to see IKF on the mound, where he gave Kevin Gausman a run for his money trying to secure the role as the Blue Jays ace. This rough offensive start to the season has Blue Jays fans worried that this might be a replica of our 2023 offensive season. The Toronto Blue Jays will look for revenge in tomorrow's game, with Jose Berrios on the bump facing off against Framber Valdez, another tough pitching matchup for this lineup.

Tension at the Trop.... Benches Clear! Genesis Cabrera; The Toronto Blue Jays VS The Tampa Bay Rays

4/1/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays split the opening weekend series 2-2 with the Tampa Bay Rays. After an 8-2 win Thursday, Chris Bassitt was solid in his first start, but the stats would not back him up. Untimely errors and a lack of hitting cost the Toronto Blue Jays that game. In the third game of the series, Yusei Kikuchi put together a mediocre outing, but it did not matter, as the Toronto Blue Jay had flashbacks from 2023 and could not hit a baseball. The Jays did bounce back on Sunday led by performances by Kevin Gausman, Justin Turner and Mitch White. The Toronto Blue Jays head to Houston for a three-game series against the Astros, hoping to find some offensive consistency. In this episode, we analyze Bo Bichette’s costly error and how we view his defensive position on this team, the Genesis Cabrera altercation that caused the benches to clear and what we saw from this team offensively in this series.

Will Vladimir Guerrero Jr. have another MVP CALIBER season in 2024?

3/26/2024
With Opening Day being 2 days away, we decided to lay out our bold takes for the 2024 season. We provide 6 Toronto Blue Jays Hot takes for this team, from who will be an everyday player to how many home runs Blue Jays players will hit this season. Which hot takes can you see panning out this season? Which players will overachieve this season? Which players will not meet expectations? Kevin Gausman was absolutely electric in his first game back from injury, striking out 7 hitters in 3 innings of work. Even with this stunning performance, it has not been confirmed if Gausman will start in the first rotation of pitchers. The MLB has made their picks for league leaders in the 2024 season.

Should Davis Schneider and Ernie Clement have made the Toronto Blue Jays Opening Day Roster?

3/25/2024
The Toronto Blue Jays have made their Opening Day roster decisions for position players on this team. Ernie Clement, Davis Schneider and Daniel Vogelbach have earned their spots, while Spencer Horwitz and Nathen Lukes were sent down in corresponding moves. The pitching situation could not be more opposite, with injuries lingering up and down the starting rotation and bullpen. How do you feel about the Blue Jays decisions on their opening-day roster? What would your opening day roster look like? The Toronto Blue Jays are nursing a TON of injuries as we move forward to opening day. Major pieces like Kevin Gausman, Jordan Romano, Erik Swanson, and Alek Manoah are all questionable for the start of the season. John Schneider has also been experimenting with different batting orders in the last few weeks of spring training, going through some trial and error to work out some kinks before meaningful baseball games come upon us. We cover this and all the major storylines for your Toronto Blue Jays. Your current Toronto Blue Jays roster: Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Bo Bichette, Kevin Gausman, Jordan Romano, Alek Manoah, Yariel Rodriguez, George Springer, Yusei Kikuchi, Jose Berrios, Chris Bassitt, Cavan Biggio, Justin Turner, Daulton Varsho, Danny Jansen, Alejandro Kirk, Joey Votto, Erik Swanson, Kevin Kiermaier, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Davis Schneider, Ernie Clement, Spencer Horwitz, Chad Green, Tim Mayza, Trevor Richards, Genesis Cabrera, Yimi Garcia, Bowden Francis, Eduardo Escobar, Daniel Vogelbach, Orelvis Martinez, Ricky Tiedemann, Zach Pop, Addison Barger, Nate Pearson, Nathan Lukes.

Which Toronto Blue Jay is set to have a MASSIVE year this season?

3/22/2024
We have a guest for today’s episode, a degenerate gambler, and sports fanatic, Skyler Peters. Skyler joins the boys in talking about the Toronto Blue Jays' success in spring training, whether these approaches will translate to the regular season, and who we think can continue to be productive at the plate throughout 2024. Which spring training standouts will continue their success into the regular season? With the trade of Santiago Espinal, we discuss who we think will get the opening day starts and 2nd and 3rd base this season. IKF and Cavan Biggio are more experienced, however, Ernie Clement and Davis Schneider have higher offensive upside that could be beneficial for a team that struggled to hit for power last season. Who do you see getting the starts on Opening Day? While we hope every Toronto Blue Jays player exceeds expectations this season, it is not realistic to believe that. We analyzed 3 players that we could see having a down year this season, due to age, lack of production, or lack of opportunity. Which players could you see underperforming for the Toronto Blue Jays? Do you think we should be worried about any Blue Jays players? Your current Toronto Blue Jays roster: Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Bo Bichette, Kevin Gausman, Jordan Romano, Alek Manoah, Yariel Rodriguez, George Springer, Yusei Kikuchi, Jose Berrios, Chris Bassitt, Cavan Biggio, Justin Turner, Daulton Varsho, Danny Jansen, Alejandro Kirk, Joey Votto, Erik Swanson, Kevin Kiermaier, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Davis Schneider, Ernie Clement, Spencer Horwitz, Chad Green, Tim Mayza, Trevor Richards, Genesis Cabrera, Yimi Garcia, Bowden Francis, Eduardo Escobar, Daniel Vogelbach, Orelvis Martinez, Ricky Tiedemann, Zach Pop, Addison Barger, Nate Pearson, Nathan Lukes.

Toronto Blue Jays send Santiago Espinal to the Reds + Blue Jays Fantasy Rankings

3/21/2024
After much speculation, the Toronto Blue Jays have traded infielder Santiago Espinal to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for right-handed starting pitcher Chris McElvain. McElvain is a young prospect, being drafted in the eighth round of 2022, and spending the 2023 season in Single-A and High-A. With Ernie Clement’s resurgence this spring training, and considering Espinal was out of options, there were not many alternatives to this result. Do you think the Blue Jays should have traded Santiago Espinal? Did the Jays get enough assets in return? With baseball season around the corner, we go into some Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Rankings, going over where your Blue Jays are being picked, and whether we believe that these rankings are correct. We break down our draft strategy, where we believe Blue Jays players will be picked, and which players we are planning on drafting. Which Toronto Blue Jays players are you targeting in your fantasy drafts? Do you agree with our rankings? Your current Toronto Blue Jays roster: Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Bo Bichette, Kevin Gausman, Jordan Romano, Alek Manoah, Yariel Rodriguez, George Springer, Yusei Kikuchi, Jose Berrios, Chris Bassitt, Cavan Biggio, Justin Turner, Daulton Varsho, Danny Jansen, Alejandro Kirk, Joey Votto, Erik Swanson, Kevin Kiermaier, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Davis Schneider, Santiago Espinal, Ernie Clement, Spencer Horwitz, Chad Green, Tim Mayza, Trevor Richards, Genesis Cabrera, Yimi Garcia, Bowden Francis, Eduardo Escobar, Daniel Vogelbach, Orelvis Martinez, Ricky Tiedemann, Zach Pop, Addison Barger, Nate Pearson, Nathan Lukes.
