Sorry to be late with our annual tradition. Some of us are more hungover than others! ;D Please feel free to list your baseball-related loot here!
It's the most... wonderful time... of the year...
Well, not really.
The Blue Jays have announced
their minor league coaching staffs for 2015. There are no changes for the Buffalo Bisons while the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Dunedin Blue Jays, the Vancouver Canadians and the Bluefield Blue Jays will have the same managers again for 2015. There will be new men at the helm for Lansing as well as the Gulf Coast League and Dominican Summer League affiliates.Jeff Ware
has been promoted to Lansing to be the pitching coach for the Lugnuts in 2015. The former Jays hurler was the pitching coach in Vancouver in 2014.
The winter meetings are over. The Jays did a few minor moves, the Red Sox some major ones.
Here is a thread to discuss all of the transactions that occur at the Winter Meetings, which are in sunny San Diego from December 7-11. Many GMs are looking to upgraded their teams still through free agency or trade, although the transactions that have occurred already this offseason suggest it may be a quieter winter meetings than usual.
Here is a comparison of top 10 Jay prospects from various sources. If a player is gone and the list includes past the top 10 I'll add a note at the bottom to help understand. The list will be updated as other top 10 lists appear. Feel free to link other top 10's and I'll try to add them.
Mariners, Blue Jays Swap Michael Saunders, J.A. Happ
. Another Canadian here, and we lose an expensive #5/6 starter.
Josh Donaldson? Are you kidding me?
Well, that time of year again. The HOF has released the list of who is on the ballot and it is a very, very crowded one yet again.
Tired of scrolling past a week's worth of comments? I'm here to help. Meet the New Thread, very much like the Old Thread.
First Peter Gammons, then John Heyman are reporting that the Jays are signing Russell Martin for Brian McCann money. Whatever the number that is a big pile of cash. The number now being reported is five years for $82M.
The Jays also announced Brook Jacoby as their new hitting coach.
All of the awards
are out now. From MVP (at last) Mike Trout to the managers of the year. How did the Jays do? Not so good, but no shock although some surprises.
Via MLB Trade Rumors: The Blue Jays announced that they have acquired second base prospect Devon Travis
from the Tigers in exchange for center fielder Anthony Gose
One that won't spill, cost too much or come in a pill! The General Managers meetings are on in Phoenix and will run until Thursday so we'll keep an eye out for what might develop from a Blue Jays perspective.
A look back on the career of Adam Lind
belts a walk-off homer and is getting ready to be mobbed by his teammates after a 10th inning blast off Seattle's Shawn Kelley
September 26, 2009. It was Lind's second homer of the game to help the Jays beat the M's 5-4.
