    Blue Jays in Review – Adam Lind

    Adam Lind
    by Shaun MacDonald

    Poor Adam Lind. In two of the past three seasons in Toronto, Lind has played less than 100 games and had less than 350 ABs. He’s what the baseball men would call ‘injury-plagued.’ He’s played 150 games or more only twice in his nine year career, and hasn’t done that since 2010. In 2014, the longest tenured position player in Toronto played in only 96 games. He hit only six home runs, but surprisingly, hit .321, roughly 50 points higher than his career average. He had a WAR of 1.9, which is important, because there were a lot of replacement...

  • Madden 2015

    Joe Madden in Toronto?

    by Shaun MacDonald

    Joe Madden, everyone’s favourite manager, opted out of his contract yesterday. OKAY, so maybe he’s not your favourite, but he’s stylish, confident, and look what he did with the limited payroll Tampa has. Here’s the big question: Would Madden fit in Toronto? First things first, the Jays already have a manager in John Gibbons. For his career, he’s 10 games under .500, never led the Jays to the postseason, and is a love him/hate him type of person. As for Madden, he has a .517 winning percentage with the Rays. He managed them to four straight...

    2014 Blue Jays In Review – Dioner Navarro

    by Shaun MacDonald

    Because there are not a lot of playoff games in their history, I’ve ended my series on ‘This Week in Blue Jays History’ for the season, and will now start a new weekly feature, ‘Blue Jays in Review.’ Each week until Spring Training, I’ll look at a key 2014 player and break down their season, compare it with 2013, and make a prediction for 2015. I’ll start behind the plate, work my way around the infield, then the outfield, then the mound. Have fun! I don’t think expectations were terribly high for Dioner Navarro when he came to...

He had a WAR of 1.9, which is important, because there were a lot of replacement players at first this year. He was a .992 defensive player, but that number is quite misleading. He only started 43 games at first base this year, or roughly 25%. Lind has usually been well received...

Outfield Decisions Looming for Blue Jays

Anthony Gose

On Friday September 5, the Jays lost a heartbreaking decision 9-8 in 10 innings. They held the lead twice that game by three runs,  and then two runs only to see both of them evaporate and subsequently the Jays lose a crucial game in September. But that was not the worst thing that occurred that night for the Blue Jays. They lost Melky Cabrera for the remainder of the season. How...
