That's why this team is ####ed and will do nothing but spin their wheels this year at best.

If it isn't Biagini, it's Axford. If it isn't Axford, Mr fill-in-the-blank can't hold their crap.

Team is too anti-clutch.

Karl I think you should drastically lower your expectations regarding this years and maybe even next years Jays, just thinking about your mental health.

The Angels are squaring up almost everything Jays pitchers throw. No good.

But how about Gurriel Jr! Kid plays good D and can launch the odd home run, I like it.

Yep. And Grichuk is cranking out homers pretty good right now, Travis hitting much better. and Molasses is making something of a comeback with his bat too.

So that's good.

To be clear, Sanchez does not have a blister. He jammed his right index finger before today's game and it swelled up on him. Wouldn't say how it happened but admitted it was painful for the entire time he was on the mound. #BlueJays

Just when he'd started to pitch decent again.

It's been a tale of two seasons for Kendrys Morales this year.
First 27 games: .146/.230/.270 with .500 OPS and 26 wRC+
Last 27 games: .315/.489/.843 with .843 OPS and 130 wRC+

Grichuk and Travis have sure turned things around, but so has Morales.

Is there any possibility that if Morales sustains he could be moved?

Possibly, but if he sustains an .800+ OPS and 130 wRC+ they'll probably keep him haha. He won't sustain that though.

He's strictly a DH so he's limited to only 14 other teams, and the Jays would have to eat most of his salary because beside bringing no defensive value he also brings negative base running value. Maybe KC would take him for his last year for sentimental reasons/optics while they rebuild. He was a big part of their WS team.

ANY possibility? Well sure... but it's still not good. He can't really play a position (I guess he can play a little first but he still isn't ideal there) so you're limited to a team that require a DH and places little value on positional versatility.

Even if Morales is very good with the bat he won't return anything that you would normally give for the batting line due to his limited utility elsewhere.The good news is that if he sustains this we get that performance value for ourselves and he's not a complete waste of a spot on the 35 man roster.

MLB suspends Osuna for 75 games. It’s retroactive, he’s suspended until August 4.

As per MLBtraderumors.

Looks like Thomas Pannone is back from his suspension as he started in Advanced A Dunedin tonight. For those who don't remember the Jays got him and Samad Taylor from Cleveland last year for Joe Smith, and then he got suspended at the start of the year for failing a drug test.

He got lit up. First start all year though, so we'll see how the next few go. He was really good in AA last season.

Alford 3 for 3 with two doubles, a triple and a walk. Hopefully that guy finds his mojo finally. What a disappointment he's been so far.

So the 4th straight awesome start from Estrada. Plus Clippard had a decent outing too.

Just keep raising that trade value fellas.

If the Jays FO can get Teoscar Hernandez for a shaky Liriano as a reliever, I salivate at what they might be able to get for two of the better rental starting pitchers on the market this summer.

And they also got a couple decent prospects for Joe Smith last year too, who was having a pretty comparable season to Clippard. Just load that system right up.

9 hits and only 1 run. They've outdone themselves.

Groshans popped his 2nd dinger of his GCL season in the top of the 1st inning. A two run shot. Just his 4th game but he's now batting .429 with 1.200+ OPS. Good start to the pro career.
