Yesterday, Sunday, was the low point for the season so far for the Jays. Bo Bichette could be out for a month and the Jays lost two winnable games with some sloppy play.

The Jays are (back) home for this week, their first home stand of 2020. Two games against the Marlins, another off-day, and three against the Rays make up the week.

Back at it after a COVID enforced break. The Jays are in Atlanta tonight for a three game series. They will end the week with three games in Boston before going home to Buffalo for next week.

The Jays are 2-2 after four games. It's too early to make any sweeping statements but lets just note that Vladdy is not hitting, his average is .222. And while Bo is hitting .250, he has no walks and no extra base hits. Danny Jansen and Teoscar are leading the offense.

Finally, opening day is here. It's going to be a weird season. The Jays could go 40-20 and win the division, or 20-40 and be way out of it. But with 16 teams in the playoffs, the Jays just need to stay close and, if they could get into the playoffs, who knows?


Of course COVID will be a factor. We have seen it already in Washington. With the players travelling, and presumably heading out at night, there will likely be more COVID issues. While the NHL and NBA are going with hub cities, its business as usual for baseball.

Since many want to ... here is a new thread for just talking about COVID - this is where you can vent about those who refuse to wear masks, or about the 'restriction' on your freedom by requiring you to wear one (do you fight the same about needing to wear pants?)

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.
