I Just Don’t Know How to Quit You…

“I’ll be there…by your side” – Sade
 

Consider that song my tribute to you, Vernon Wells. You had me at hello.  Your big bat, your big arm, your big smile, your big nose. We had so much in common from the very beginning. We could have been soulmates. Read more

Let it begin…

September 27, 2008

So, the race for AJ may have begun in earnest, with a report that the Jays are set to offer him a 4-year deal worth $54 mil.  I have a feeling that this is just the start of a longer saga, since AJ would probably be nuts not to opt-out. Word is that especially with the Yanks looking to open the vaults, he’d get a chunk more on the open market. This may also be the Jays making a token offer, knowing full well he’ll turn it down to test the market. Read more

The Plot Thickens

September 26, 2008

Okay, so almost immediately after I posted yesterday, it was announced that Cito and JP were coming back. During the press conference, Paul Godfrey said he’d likely make a decision on his future “probably sometime next week.” I was half-joking about JP being the president, but these signs point to it actually happening. They couldn’t and wouldn’t confidently announce that JP will be back unless JP himself was going to be the president, or if they have someone already lined up in the event of Godfrey’s step-down who has agreed to keep JP. We’ll see over the next week. Should be interesting.

All The President’s Men on Base

September 25, 2008

So I’ve been on hiatus for a week or so, if you’ve noticed(and, judging by the readership, you probably haven’t) and I’ve had some time to sit and think. During this time, I’ve come up with some pretty cutting-edge conspiracy theories involving the Salvation Army, aliens, and Clay Aiken. I won’t get into those with you, but the one I’d like to discuss is the one that really keeps me up at night. It involves the secret behind who their next president of the Toronto Blue Jays will be.

Another go around?

September 18, 2008

I guess we can take it for what it’s worth, but Richard Griffin seems to think that JP will be keeping his job for the time being. Griffin states that with the coming announcement that Cito Gaston will be signing an extension, it’s an indication that JP will also return. He feels this way because field managers are normally introduced by general managers, and this announcement is coming during the season, as opposed to after. Read more

All quiet

…and then there was nothing. 

The Blue Jays blogosphere, so vibrant you could almost hear the humming just 3 days ago, has gone mostly  dormant. On Friday the comments sections, messageboards, and blogs were filled with optimism, “what-ifs” and “stranger things have happeneds.” Now…emptiness. Read more

Remember how a couple weeks ago I said it was “do-or-die” time for the Jays? And then they didn’t “do?” (please don’t remember how I also promised never to say “do-or-die” again….but then you know what they say about promises: just ignore them and do whatever the heck you want anyway). Read more

Dazed and Confused

September 8, 2008

8 days…8 wins. Good times had by all. Walkoffs, comebacks, slugfests and pitching duels. What haven’t we seen over the past week and one(other than a Jays loss of course)? 

And it’s been great. The teams the Jays have beaten have been old Read more
