For fun, we all think about how "if only the Jays had player xyz" so lets have some fun.

If the Jays had somehow pulled Mariano Rivera from the Yankees way back when and used him as the closer what difference would've it made?  Remember, this is the only guy to get into the HOF with a 100% vote total so it should be a big difference.

The BR game finder is free at the moment so I dug in a bit for silly Jay records.

OK, I think we need a thread for just baseball.  We have the Jays GM proposing lots of doubleheaders (7 inning ones) whenever baseball comes back.  Thoughts?

There is a little over two weeks left in spring training. The Blue Jays have 15 games left before they count. This is the time you want to see players round into form. It doesn't matter if they hit .100 over the first half, its how they end that should matter.

Finally, let the games begin! Its full steam ahead with baseball games from today until the end of October, eight and a half months of action. Let's get excited about some fringe player who hits the cover off the ball in the first week. Just remember, the hitters will see a lot of fastballs in the first week, so performance in that week is not necessarily predictive.


The Jays start with two road games, tomorrow is against the Yankees. The first home game in the new ballpark is Monday. Tuesday is doubleheader day.


This weekend games are on Sportsnet. Your first chance to see the new ballpark on TV is the 29th.

New thread is needed. And there's news! Reese McGuire has been arrested and Eric Pardinho needs Tommy John surgery.

Off to a roaring start, I must say.

Pitchers and catchers begin workouts on... 13 February? That's like two weeks from now. Is winter getting shorter? This is still Canada, right?

This is one of those dumb things I took an inexplicable interest in and had to dig into.

New thread needed?

The Jays avoided arbitration with Giles, Shoemaker, and Drury. I guess that's news.

As 2019 ends and 2020 begins who were the Jays of the 10's?

New thread is required, and perhaps we can start to speculate on the shape of the active roster. I suspect most of what was going to happen has already happened, at least until mid-March when teams start to cut loose people they're just not going to have room for...

People ask me what I do in the winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.

Well, Hornsby was a lunatic. Anyway, New Thread is badly needed. Especially as the Jays have apparently signed themselves a pitcher from the Mysterious East. No, not that one (who's probably received the Jays offer and is now waiting patiently, for as long as it takes, for someone to top it.)

Take it away, gang.

Clearly, New Thread is needed.

Well, the post-season is over and now it is time for free agents, trades, arbitration, and non-stop wondering 'could player xyz help the Jays' followed by 'Rogers is too cheap to sign him' talk.

And then there were four. Who to cheer for? The big bad Yankees, the traditional enemy? The new bullies, the Astros, including Roberto Osuna? The sheriffs of playing the game the right way, the Cardinals? Or the ex-Expos, the Nationals?
