Oh man I can’t agree with you more. I swear the only people that enjoy it are the pitchers. Everyone else is just dreading the wasted AB. Except Happ, never Happ. Which is funny enough because I’m pretty sure he’s the only one with a hit this season. Never change Happ, never! Continue reading Reader Question: My fave thing ever is when we play an NL team and our pitchers have to bat like – “YES THIS IS THE EXTREMELY STRANGE AND SLIGHTLY UNCOMFORTABLE S*** I AM ALIVE FOR”
And here’s the final part of this wrap up and I have to say I think we’re all pretty excited for 2017. @atedaryl: I want to see how this offence will hold up with the potential loss of Bautista and Encarnacion. They Jays were alright with less that amazing Bautista, but Encarnacion this year was insane. Also, with those two gone this team will really … Continue reading End of the Season Wrap Up: What are you looking forward to the most in 2017?
So yesterday’s write up was depressing but here’s one that’s a little more fun. Unlike yesterday where people seemed to gravitate to 3-4 moments as the lowest point of the season, there was a huge variety of answers for out favourite moments. I think part of the reason for this is we all have our own favourite players but also because, despite how this season … Continue reading End of the Season Wrap Up: Favourite moment of the season?
Kevin Pillar and R.A. Dickey finalist for Gold Glove. Rawling Sports announced the finalist for the Gold Glove Award and both R.A. Dickey and Kevin Pillar were name for their respective positions. As I write this, Rawlings has yet to announce their finalist for right field but I’m fairly certain that none of the Jays that played RF will be a contender so let’s focus … Continue reading Kevin Pillar and R.A. Dickey finalist for Gold Glove.
So this one is a little less fun. Every season will have it ups and downs and these were the moments the we thought the team was the most down. Ouch this one hurts and it came so early in the season as well. @rainingsun: I’m sorry to bring this up but the worst moment for me was finding out the news about Cola @jaysgirlemily: … Continue reading End of the Season Wrap Up: Least favourite moment of the season?
For the Jays to make it back to the postseason a couple of guys had to step up and have a season not many of us expected from them. Most of us agree that it came down to two players: @desadaraay: Biagini or Carrera. Both really impressed me this year. Not much of was expected of Biagini. One can only hoped that he pitched well … Continue reading End of the Season Wrap Up: The Blue Jay that surprised you the most?
Last year choosing the Teams MVP was quite easy. Donaldson was just insanely amazing over everyone else. This year we saw a couple more people step up and have career years which seen by the variety of responses I got: buddleia (disqus): Pillar (cuz I know JD and Tulo will get a lot of votes XD ) LS (disqus): If I have to pick one … Continue reading End of the Season Wrap Up: Blue Jays MVP?
