Minor league rosters will be announced this week. The Blue Jays do not release rosters until the home town teams have their chance to announce their teams first. Most of those announcements will come today and tomorrow. Some of the reporters covering the major league team will have some news sooner, and as I type this the Fisher Cats have released their roster.
With the season just 60 hours away the Jays have made their final roster decisions, and there are some surprises.
Phew, spring is almost over. It is sunny and the snow is almost all gone up here in Thunder Bay. The Jays have Pearce in LF and Smoak at 1B it seems.
Sox it to me... (ugh that was bad even by my standards...)
I'm running out of time faster than I'm running out of divisions...
Not last, but possibly least...
Getting to the final days of spring now - time for someone to step up.
The battle for second place...
Figured it was time to start anew. Jays now 2nd or 3rd worst in the AL (depending how you count it) at 2-7. Yankees using up all their luck now at 10-3, while Boston & Baltimore are solidly mediocre at 5-6 and 6-5 respectively. Tampa a tiny bit better at 6-4.
It's a previewy time of year...
Uh oh, panic time. Jays are 0-3 in spring. Time to fire everyone! Oh, these games don't count? OK. ::steps off ledge::
It will take you a little bit longer for you to get inside Coca-Cola Field
in Buffalo from now on. The team recently announced it will have metal detectors
at the ballpark entrances in place for the 2017 season.
Metal detectors will greet fans heading to Bisons games starting Opening Day April 6. (Image from BallparkReviews.com
This is where we sweat the little things...
...it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.
So the World Baseball Classic (WBC) is upon us soon and 10 Jays are going.
