The world Series started yesterday and the game did not live up to the standards of the previous rounds. In recent years the World Series has been less enthralling than the previous rounds, two of the last three series have been sweeps. The Giants get to pitch Madison Bumgarner twice against the Royals and that could give them an edge. The Royals do have a lot of left handed hitters and that works in favour of Bumngarner and the Giants.

The Royals face a must win game tonight with Yordano Ventura facing Jake Peavy.

Baseball is a funny game! R.A. Dickey and Miguel Gonzalez had given up a combined 50 home runs (25 apiece) heading into their final starts of the season. Instead of a home run derby and offensive fireworks, only one run was scored.

Dalton Pompey is greeted by first base coach Tim Leiper after a single to lead off the second inning. Pompey was later picked off at first.

With the amazing year we've seen in the Jays minors it got me to thinking about prospects and how the Jays ones have done and what is the best year we've ever seen.  Could we currently have the strongest farm in Jays history?  Doubtful, but lets do a check.

A few months ago I discussed why we had shut off new member registrations. To recap, the volume of spam member requests were creating a logistical nightmare and were in turn slowing the site. we were receiving hundreds of spam member requests every day and in our system they had to be manually declined one by one.

I am happy to announce that we will reopen registration later today or tomorrow and leave it open until Monday evening. So if you have been waiting to register now is your chance.

I've been working on the great Blue Jays Report Card (coming to a Batter's Box near you on Monday), and when it came to discussing the manager I thought I'd try to identify a few things the man actually does when it comes to running his team.

I got carried away. So I thought I'd best spin it off into a separate piece.
