Toronto Blue Jays 2016 News and Updates
10/13/15 - They’re not done yet, Canada. The Toronto Blue Jays kept their World Series dreams alive on Monday, prevailing over the Texas Rangers in Arlington. The Jays rode an early assault from the heart of their lineup, getting dingers from Josh Donaldson, Chris Colabello, and Kevin Pillar to open an early 4-0 lead. Texas starter Derek Holland was yanked after just two frames, while Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey combined with David Price out of the bullpen to stifle the Rangers enough to force a final game on Toronto’s artificial turf. Tickets are still available for Rogers Center to be a part of Game 5 of the American League Division Series if you act quickly!
10/9/15 - It must’ve surprised the Toronto Blue Jays when staff ace David Price took the loss in Game 1 versus the Texas Rangers. Although the Jays’ postseason hasn’t gotten off to the smoothest of starts, there’s sure to be plenty of confidence in their locker room regardless. The high-powered Toronto offense posted more runs than any other team in the bigs this year, and fans of the team know that they’re always just one hit away from sparking one of their trademark onslaughts. The Blue Jays will host Game 2 at the Air Canada Centre on Friday night—get your tickets starting at $142! Act now though, because supplies won’t last!
10/2/15 - Word has finally been released that the Toronto Blue Jays are going to the postseason. Their current record is 92-67, which puts them at the top of the AL Eastern Division. In fact, there are only three teams above the Blue Jays in the entire league. They were essentially guaranteed a spot in the American League Division Series, but it is exciting for it to be made official. There are no more home games in the regular season, but now fans can count on seeing their team in the championship. Tickets for the first round, starting on October 8th, are available starting at $151. Come out and support the Blue Jays.
9/25/15 - Despite some recent losses, the Toronto Blue Jays retain the top spot in the AL Eastern Division with a 3.5 game cushion. Their most recent series was against the Yankees, which they won 2-1. The Blue Jays went out strong in the first game, scoring three runs in the bottom of the first. After several scoreless innings, they scored again in the seventh to protect themselves against the Yankees' rally. The next night, the two teams battled it out to ten innings, where the Yankees scored three runs and the Blue Jays were only able to get one. They shut out the Yankees the next night to ensure their victory. The Blue Jays next host the Rays for a three game series starting on the 25th. You can still get tickets, with prices starting at $38.
9/18/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have been on their game lately. Being at the top of their division as the season winds down puts them in an excellent position for the post season. They are currently finishing up a series of away games, but they still managed to win four of their last six matches. The Jays now return to Toronto for their final home series. Starting on September 18th, the Jays are looking at three sets, against the Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees, and the Tampa Bay Rays, for a total of nine games. Be sure to secure your spot in the stands and show your support for your team. Tickets for their first game back are still available starting as low as $26.
9/11/15 - Despite some recent losses, the Toronto Blue Jays remain 1 1/2 games ahead of the competition in first place of the AL East Division. The Blue Jays lost two of the three games in their most recent series against the Red Sox. They lost the first game 4-11 but came back the next night to get the win. The game started close, with the Blue Jays scoring one in the first and the Red Sox equalizing in the second. After several scoreless innings, the game entered overtime. In the tenth inning, the Blue Jays rallied to score four runs and win the game. The Blue Jays next head to New York to play four games against the Yankees. You can still get your tickets, with prices starting at just $14.
9/4/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have won eight of their last ten games and are ranked first in the AL Eastern Division. Their only losses were in the last of three against the Rangers on the 27th and then on the first of three against the Indians on the 31st. In the most recent loss, the Indians scored first, but the Blue Jays drew ahead after scoring two runs in the fifth. However, the Indians tied the game and drew ahead in the seventh and the Blue Jays were unable to equalize. The Blue Jays responded to the expanded roster in September by calling up five minor league players. The Blue Jays have a chance to beat the Indians on the 1st and 2nd. You still have a chance to get tickets, with prices starting at $24.
8/28/15 - Only one team in the AL East has compiled 70 wins, and it’s not the Yankees. The Toronto Blue Jays continue to soar, winning four straight and six out of seven to reclaim the lead in their division. The Jays set a franchise record in their three-game sweep of the Angels this week, scoring 36 runs to bring their MLB-leading total to 670 on the season. The closing victory of the series might’ve been the most impressive, as knuckleballer R.A. Dickey gave up five runs in the first inning, only to watch his offense storm back for a 12-5 victory. Next up, the Jays will host the Tigers in a big series at Rogers Centre. Tickets are available now for each contest, including Sunday’s matinee game from $33 and up!
8/21/15 - Even though the Toronto Blue Jays were able to remain completely undefeated the last time they met the New York Yankees, on the Yankees' field no less, the Blue Jays struggled when having a rematch set against New York on their home field. The Jays are still performing incredibly well, however. Their recent losses actually ended an impressive 11 game winning streak, which rocketed the Jays to the number two position in their division and they are tied for wins with the top team, which just happens to be the Yankees. The Jays enter a series of away games now, but they will return on August 28th to host the Detroit Tigers. Tickets start at as low as $28. Secure your place in the stands today.
8/7/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have won six of the past seven games. After going 1-1 in a two game series against the Phillies, the Blue Jays started strong in a four game series against the Royals. They won the first game, even with the Royals getting the first two runs. The next night, the Blue Jays came back from behind to tie in the seventh inning and won after Josh Donaldson hit a walk-off single in the 11th inning. The next night saw the game go the other way, but the Blue Jays won the final game to take the series 3-1. They have also won the first two of a four game series against the Twins. It's not too late to get tickets to the final two games on the 5th and 6th, with prices starting at $51.
7/31/15 - There has been a ton of player shuffling this week to beat the trade deadline on July 31. The Toronto Blue Jays picked up a great player during the trading chaos from the Detroit Tigers. Left-handed, David Price is going to be making his way to the Blue Jays. In return, the Tigers will receive Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd, and Jairo Labourt. The Blue Jays also made a big deal with the Colorado Rockies, acquiring shortstop Troy Tulowizki. 1993 was the last time that the Toronto Blue Jays have made it to the playoffs and they have high hopes that these two additional players can help them get there this year. Watch the Blue Jays live as they hit the field against the Kansas City Royals on July 31.
7/24/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays record looks just like it did when the season started, an even number of wins and losses. However, they are currently ranked as the second place team in the AL East Division and are trying to catch the number one team, the New York Yankees. The Blue Jays have won their last three of four games and are starting a promising series against the Mariners on Friday, July 24. The Mariners are one of the bottom teams in their division, so the Blue Jays should be able to pull off a few wins on the road. To attend the Blue Jays versus Mariners games, simply buy your tickets here for any of the three games. Tickets are still available to spruce up your weekend.
7/17/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays broke a three game losing streak when they won the second of three games against the Royals. The Royals held the Blue Jays to a shutout in their first meeting. The Blue Jays came back the next night to win. Edwin Encarnacion hit a homer in the fourth inning, bringing in another run as well to score for the first time in 27 innings for the team. Danny Valencia hit a homer in the ninth to bring in three runs. Mark Buehrle allowed just two runs in the seven innings he was on the mound. The Blue Jays were unable to capitalize on the win the next night, which was a close game. They host the Rays starting the 17th for a three game series, with tickets available as low as $17.
7/10/15 - This series of away games has not been going exactly as planned for the Toronto Blue Jays. So far, they have won two out of five games. They did manage to score 10 runs in one of those wins, however, so fans still know the Jay have what it takes. Coming up, the Jays have one more set before making a pit stop in Toronto. First, they will take on the Kansas City Royals, then they will play just three games on their own field before hitting the road again. If you are waiting for them to return, this set against the Tampa Bay Rays is your best chance to catch them live. Tickets are already available for their brief homecoming, which starts on July 17th.
7/3/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays won two out of three games in both their set against the Tampa Bay Rays and the Texas Rangers. However, the Boston Red Sox fared slightly better against the Jays, taking three games. It is sad to see the Blue Jays end their home series on a low note, but they are ready to start racking up the wins again as they travel to Detroit to take on the Tigers. The four top teams in the AL Eastern Division, including the Jays, all have the same number of wins. If Toronto were able to perform well in these upcoming games, they could easily secure the top position. They will return to Toronto on July 17th. Tickets are already available starting at $12.
6/26/15 - Pitcher Marco Estrada of the Toronto Blue Jays almost pulled of a perfect game Wednesday night against Tampa. He went seven full innings without letting anyone on base, but in the eighth, Josh Donaldson got to first with a hit to the infield. Despite losing the chance at a perfect game by just five outs, Estrada and the rest of the Jays have got to be happy with how he threw the ball. They beat the Rays 1-0. Toronto will play their next games against the Texas Rangers on their home field at the Rogers Centre in Ontario this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (June 26-28). We have tickets on sale now for all three games. Ticket prices start at just $12, so take the whole family for a fun day of baseball!
6/19/15 - Last week the Toronto Blue Jays were able to remain undefeated in two consecutive sets, against the Astros and the Marlins. Amazingly, they were able to add one more set to that impressive feat. The Blue Jays were able to beat out the Boston Red Sox all three times they met, despite playing on the Red Sox's field. The Jays even managed to score 13 runs in two separate games. It certainly seems like the Blue Jays were on a hot streak, reaching an 11-game winning streak, but they had a little against the New York Mets. The Blue Jays lost both of their meetings so far, but the set will continue on Toronto's home field, so they may be able to fare better. Get your tickets today.
6/12/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have an eight-game winning streak on the books, giving them a 31-30 record. They swept their series against the Houston Astros, then turned around and swept the Miami Marlins. The Jays are averaging 5.33 runs per game, the best offense in the league, and more than half-a-run ahead of the New York Yankees (4.66) who sit in second place. The Blue Jays are out on the road over the weekend and in the first of next week, coming home on Wednesday (6/17) for two games against the New York Mets. Tickets for this evening game are on sale for just $7 and up. Get your seats now for the upcoming weekend games against the Baltimore Orioles, beginning on Friday (6/19) for $7 in the Upper Level.
6/10/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have an eight-game winning streak going, and Scott Copeland got his first win as a starter in Wednesday’s game against the Marlins that went 7-2. The Blue Jays swept the series against Miami, and they’re just three games out of the lead in the AL East with a 31-30 record. Over the upcoming weekend, the Blue Jays are in Boston, before going to New York to face the Mets. Tickets are on sale for their two home games against the New York Mets beginning Wednesday (6/17). Prices start at just $4 for the Upper Level seats. Get your tickets now for next week’s games against the Orioles at Rogers Centre. Beginning Friday (6/19), the Blue Jays host Baltimore in a three-games series.
6/5/15 - Things were looking rocky for the Toronto Blue Jays when the set opener against the Washington Nationals ended with the Jays failing to score. This defeat was made more disappointing because it was on the heels of two consecutive losses against the Minnesota Twins and a postponed game. The Blue Jays really turned their performance around, however, and they scored a 7-3 victory later that evening and followed it up by shutting the Nationals out while scoring eight runs. Toronto was able to end their series of away games on a high note, so hopefully this means they will be bringing a lot of energy home with them. They will be taking on the Houston Astros next, on their own field for the first time since May 27th.
5/29/15 - In the ninth inning of a close game, Toronto Blue Jays’ Josh Donaldson hit a three-run homer to give the Jays a 10-9 win against the Chicago White Sox. It was the third straight win for the Blue Jays, but they couldn’t keep the momentum going. They gave up their winning streak the next day when the White Sox won in a 10-inning game 5-3. The Blue Jays are out on the road over the upcoming week, facing the Twins over the weekend before heading to Washington DC for three games against the Nationals. On Friday (6/5), they come home to Rogers Center to host the Houston Astros in a three-game series. Tickets start at $7, and there are plenty of great seats for the taking. Come on out and cheer for your home team.
5/15/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have had a fairly even season so far, with a current record of 17 wins and 18 losses. They most recently played the Orioles in a three game series, of which they won the second game 10-2. In this game, the Orioles were first to get on the scoreboard with two runs in the third inning. The Blue Jays were able to keep them from scoring any more and picked up their offensive play for the win. The seventh and eight innings were big innings, with the teaming scoring four runs in each. Edwin Encarnacion hit two homers, and Josh Donaldson brought in two runs. The team next heads to Houston to play the Astros for a four game series starting on May 14, with ticket prices as low as $6.
5/8/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays seem to be unable to start a streak of any kind. Ever since they lost to the Boston Red Sox on April 27th, the Blue Jays have won every other one of their matchups. There does not seem to be any pattern to their play either. They have scored as few as one run or as many 11, which they managed to pull off two separate times. This strange occurrence even continued after their series of away games ended and their returned to their own field. This, unfortunately, means the Blue Jays have been unable to earn a positive win/loss ration and remain 14-15. As they prepare for a rematch against the Red Sox in this coming week, hopefully they will be able to play more consistently.
4/29/15 - Sloppy pitching was the name of the game for both the Toronto Blue Jays and the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night, as the two teams had a combined 19 runs off of 30 hits. Despite lackluster performance from the bullpen, the Jays snapped their four-game losing streak, and won the over four-hour-long game 11-8. Every player in the batting lineup was able to get at least one hit, and four had at least two, making the long game an entertaining one for the audience. The upcoming schedule for Toronto includes two at-home series against the Yankees on May 4-6 and Boston on May 8-10. How will Toronto fare against these two notorious ball clubs? Come see for yourself, and bring the family! Tickets are available now at all price points.
4/24/15 - It seems that the MLB has a new rivalry brewing between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles. At Tuesday night’s game, a bit of bad blood was stirred up after a pitch from Jason Garcia went rogue and nearly hit Jose Bautista, who then stared down the Orioles pitcher. Later on in the at-bat, Bautista hit a two-run homer and as he crossed home base, he glared again, but this time at the entire Orioles dugout. Although the Jays squarely won the game 13-6, that didn’t stop Baltimore from doing a little trash talking of their own. With so much of the season left to go, it will be exciting to watch what happens between these two teams. They play again Wednesday and Thursday at the Rogers Centre in Toronto and ticket prices start at just $5.
4/14/15 - Fans of the Toronto Blue Jays have a lot to smile about this week as the 2015 regular season is now in full swing. Taking on the immense talent from big clubs such as the New York Yankees is never easy, but the Jays beat them twice in a three game series away from home this week. They had the same record against the Orioles, giving them a solid 4-2 start to the season. They will spend some time at home in the next week or so, taking on the Rays on Wednesday and Thursday. After that, they will go head-to-head with the Atlanta Braves for another three-game series on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. With tickets starting at $9, you can enjoy a weekend full of baseball fun with the whole family!
4/8/15 - The youngest Opening Day starting pitcher in Toronto Blue Jays history fashioned a neat three-hitter against the N.Y. Yankees to kick off the Jays’ 2015 season, while Edwin Encarnacion blasted a two-run homer. Devon Travis also left the yard for the Jays, his first career hit.
3/25/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have had a good spring so far, winning 13 of their 22 games, which leads the Grapefruit League at the moment. The Jays do have some unanswered questions, though, such as what to do with catcher Dioner Navarro, who is expected to make $5 million; and will quirky (he lives in a van) starter Daniel Norris stick with the club as their fifth starter?
3/18/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays can’t seem to catch a break this spring. Slugger Edwin Encarnacion is already out with a sore back, and now outfielder Kevin Pillar will be joining him on the growing list of players with injuries. The outfielder reportedly sneezed too hard on Saturday morning while the Blue Jays were facing the New York Yankees. Pillar sneezed so hard, in fact, that he strained his right oblique muscle. Although he was able to play through the fifth inning of the game, he ultimately had to leave with sharp pain in his right side. Pillar’s prognosis is day to day, but he will likely miss seven to ten games while he recovers from the sidelining sneeze. Manager Alex Anthopoulos says he wants to give Pillar time to heal rather than rush him back on the field.
3/10/15 - Right-hander Jason Stroman has been lost for the season to the Toronto Blue Jays, after it was disclosed by the club that he had suffered a torn ACL in his left knee. Stroman was a rookie last season, finishing with 11 wins against six losses, and was being counted on as a key contributor this year.
3/4/15 - For the Toronto Blue Jays, a team which started off fast and then fell as meteorically as any last season, it’s a new year and a new chance to break a postseason drought that has lasted since 1993, and the second of two Jays World Series victories. The Jays take on division rival Baltimore on Thursday after splitting their first two exhibition outings with Pittsburgh.
2/13/15 - The Toronto Blue Jays have their home opener a little later than usual in the upcoming 2015 season, so you may want to take advantage of their excellent preseason lineup. It all starts on March 3rd when they play the Pittsburgh Pirates. You can see the Blue Jays in action for the very first time this year for as little as $14. If you are waiting for the full season to get in on the action, you are going to have to wait until April 13th. Toronto's seventh game of the season is their first home game and tickets start at $30. Luckily, you will have many chances to see them after their series of away game ends, because they will be playing 10 consecutive home games, one on nearly every day, through the 23rd.
9/23/14 - A season which at one point held so much promise for the Toronto Blue Jays appears to be ending with the team as just one of the also-rans in 2014. Even though the team has not yet been mathematically eliminated from the wild card race, its demise is all but imminent, as the team stands six games behind Kansas City, who holds the second berth, with five left to play – including the season finale against division leaders Baltimore. The Jays are slated to send rookie Daniel Norris out to the mound for the Thursday finale against Seattle, in his first major league start. He’s appeared in four games this month, with a total of 3 1/3 innings under his belt, as a September callup.
9/16/14 - With just 13 games remaining in the regular season – seven at home, six on the road – the Toronto Blue Jays are running out of calendar before they are eliminated from postseason contention. On ESPN.com’s “Hunt for October” playoff page, the Jays are shown to have just a 1.4% chance of making the postseason in any role; after Tuesday’s games, the Jays are 12 ½ games behind Baltimore, the second-best team in the major leagues record-wise, in the American League East, and five games out of the second wild-card position behind Kansas City, with Seattle in between the Royals and Jays in the wild-card standings. The Jays will finish a midweek series at Camden Yards with the Orioles before heading up the coast to visit the New York Yankees.
9/9/14 - It may end up being a case of too little, too late for the Toronto Blue Jays, who have pulled into a virtual second-place tie with the New York Yankees in the American League East, 10 games back of a Baltimore squad which has a division title in sight. This also means the Jays are five back of the second AL wild card slot, which at this point could be held by any one of four teams – Detroit, Kansas City, Oakland, or Seattle – once is all is said and done at the end of the month. (It’s getting that tight!) The Jays would also have to have Cleveland falter down the stretch, as the Indians are a half-game closer to the wild cards than the Jays.
9/3/14 - It is only through the closeness of the American League wild-card race that the Toronto Blue Jays still have an outside chance at the postseason. The Jays entered the final month of the 2014 regular season 10 games out of the lead in the AL East, but just 5 ½ games out of a wild-card slot, which are currently held by Oakland and Detroit, with Seattle, Cleveland and the New York Yankees in between the Jays and the wild-card. The Jays will play all but seven games this month against East rivals. The team has won four of their last five, including their first game of the September stretch against Tampa Bay.
8/26/14 - How far the mighty have fallen…and the summer swoon continues for the Toronto Blue Jays. At one point one of the powerhouse clubs of the American League this season, the Jays have fallen well off the pace being set by first place Baltimore; in fact, yhe Jays have also been passed by the aging New York Yankees, and are in danger of falling to fourth place, with Tampa Bay sitting just two games behind with the September stretch looming close on the horizon. August in particular has not been good to the Blue Jays, who have lost 15 of 21 this month, with games against Boston and the Yanks still on tap.
8/20/14 - It continues to be a crazy 2014 for the Toronto Blue Jays, who not only have to catch up to Baltimore, currently 8 ½ games up on the Jays in the American League East – but also have to hold off a pair of surprise East squads in the New York Yankees, who are locked in a virtual tie with the Jays, but also Tampa Bay coming up from below and are now just three games behind the Jays and Yanks. The Blue Jays have won just five times in August, with just two of those wins coming consecutively – and both were extra-inning contests against Detroit, one of 10 innings followed by an epic 19-inning win. The Jays will need to right the ship fast if they hope to break their string of not appearing in the postseason – just seven of their remaining contests are against non-Eastern opponents.
7/30/14 - After falling out of first place and becoming precariously close to falling to third place in the always challenging American League East in the first half of the season, the Toronto Blue Jays have gotten off to a fast start out of the All-Star break, winning nine of 12 and making the East a pennant race once again, moving to 2 ½ games behind Baltimore and two games up on the third-place New York Yankees. One of the keys to the Jays’ resurgence is the pitching of Marcus Stroman, who has won his last three decisions (once over Texas, and twice against Boston). In 11 starts and 74 1/3 innings, the righthanded Stroman is 7-2 with 67 strikeouts against just 17 walks, with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. While Stroman is not your typical 6 ½ foot starting pitcher (he is only 5’9”), he has the power to bring a 95-mph heater, combined with a killer slider to keep hitters off balance. This rookie is one to watch, if he’s hit his stride.
7/22/14 - Coming out of the All-Star break, the Toronto Blue Jays are in dire need of righting the ship after spending most of the first half sailing along at the top of the American League East. Currently tied for second in the division with the New York Yankees (who are doing it with smoke and mirrors), four games back of Baltimore, the Jays need the heart of their lineup, slugger Edwin Encarnacion, back in a hurry. In the meantime, they have called up their top pitching prospect from down the Q.E.W. in Triple-A Buffalo. Righthander Aaron Sanchez had started this season at Double-A New Hampshire, then was promoted to Buffalo, where he went 0-3 in eight games out of the bullpen in preparation for taking on a relief role with the big club. The Jays also called up one other pitcher, righthander Esmil Rogers, and recalled position player Ryan Goins, an infielder. Goins had previously played 24 games with the Jays, hitting .150 in 60 at-bats.
7/16/14 - Whither the Toronto Blue Jays? At one point last month, the Jays looked like maybe the one team that might be able to challenge Oakland for American League supremacy; but going into the All-Star break, the traditional midpoint of the season, the Jays are perilously close to falling into thord place in the AL East, just a game ahead of the creaky New York Yankees (tied in wins but two losses fewer). Plus, coming out of the break, the Jays will be without the services of slugger Edwin Encarnacion, and more recently Adam Lind, both on the disabled list (though Lind’s broken foot is much more severe than Encarnacion’s strained quad muscle). Bright spots have included Jose Bautista’s .292/.409/.502 slash line with 17 HR; and Mark Buehrle’s 10 wins and 2.64 ERA.
7/8/14 - Not only have the Toronto Blue Jays fallen out of first place in the American League East division race (they’re now three games behind surging Baltimore), the Jays took a blow to their lineup as well, as slugging outfielder Edwin Encarnacion was put on the 15-day disabled list by the team earlier this week, with a strained right quadriceps muscle. Encarnacion, who was named to the AL All-Star squad before the injury occurred, will now miss the game; however, the Jays will remain well-represented by outfielder Jose Bautista, who was the overall top vote-getter among all MLB players, and pitcher Mark Buehrle, one of the AL’s top starters.
7/3/14 – Just a few weeks ago, the Toronto Blue Jays were soaring high above the competitive AL East with a whopping 5 game division league. Fast forward to July, and that lead has been whittled down to just one game ahead of the surging Baltimore Orioles. This upcoming road trip will prove to be crucial step if Toronto intends to maintain their division advantage, with trips to the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Angels and Tampa Bay Rays before the All Star break. First up is the top team in the majors, the Oakland As at O.CO Coliseum, tonight at 6pm. See the Jays set of rockets in enemy territory with Toronto Blue Jays tickets this evening; pay just $42 for MVP infield seats and get an amazing view of their Patriotic Fireworks display!
6/19/14 - It’s been over 20 years since Joe Carter left the yard against Philadelphia’s Mitch “Wild Thing” Williams in the bottom of the ninth inning of 1993 World Series Game 6, giving the Toronto Blue Jays their second – and last – World Series title. But Jerry Crasnick of ESPN says that there’s some buzz starting to rise over a team that’s been mostly wandering in the wilderness of the American League East since that last league title. The Jays have finished above third place just once since ’93, a second place finish in 2006; last season, which seemed to offer some promise, saw the Blue Jays fall thud to dead last place in the AL East. Fast forward to 2014, and the high-flying Jays seem poised to give Rogers Centre fans something else to cheer about – the only Toronto based major sports team to win a league championship of any kind since 1993 has been the Canadian Football League’s Argonauts, who have claimed four Grey Cups (the CFL equivalent of the Super Bowl), in 1996, 1997, 2004 and 2012.
6/11/14 - The Toronto Blue Jays continue their mastery of the American League East, and the rest of the clubs they face as well. Now 5 ½ games ahead of second place Baltimore, and owners of the second best record in the AL (one loss behind Oakland), the Jays got Edwin Encarnacion’s 20th homer in Monday’s win over Minnesota, which puts him second in the AL to Baltimore’s Nelson Cruz.. Encarnacion is also second in the AL in RBI, third in slugging percentage, fourth in OPS, sixth in runs scored, and ninth in walks. The other big bats in Toronto’s lineup, Jose Bautista, is hitting .309 with a .436 on-base percentage, and Melky Cabrera, not far behind at .304 but leading the team with 82 hits.
6/3/14 - Are the Toronto Blue Jays now the team to beat in the American League East? More and more, it is looking like that’s the case – though some pundits are suggesting that the Jays need one more starter in their rotation in order to keep their advantage in an extremely tough division, one that has been dominated in the 21st Century by two teams – the Yankees and Red Sox – with Tampa Bay and Baltimore gaining ground as well. Currently fourth in ESPN’s power rankings and fifth in brother publication Grantland’s “The 30,” the Jays have gone 16-4 in their last 20 games. Powering this has been Edwin Encarnacion, who has moved into second place in the AL in homers (19), RBI (50), and slugging percentage (.615), as well as fourth in runs scored (40) and OPS (.974). Mark Buehrle has become Major League Baseball’s first 10-game winner as well, pitching eight strong innings on June 1 against Kansas City to bring his record to an astounding 10-1.
5/28/14 - These are exciting times north of the border for the Toronto Blue Jays. The team they assembled, and expected to compete with last season, is finally playing up to its billing in 2014, currently in first place in the ultra-competitive American League East Division. The Jays are second in the entire 30-team MLB in runs scored, third in hits, first in home runs, second in total bases, fourth in on-base percentage, and second in slugging percentage and OPS (on-base plus slugging). The outstanding hitting numbers, though, mask some pitching issues – 24th in earned-run average and batting-average against, 19th in strikeouts, and just a single complete game (a shutout by Drew Hutchison)...but their seven shutouts recorded put them tied for fourth place overall.
5/20/14 - After winning just one of four against the Los Angeles Angels, the Toronto Blue Jays turned around and took two out of three from both Cleveland (at home) and Texas (on the road), before heading off to do battle in Boston. Along the way, pitchers Mark Buehrle (7-1), R.A. Dickey (4-2) and Drew Hutchison (2-3) collected wins, the latter coming against Rangers ace Yu Darvish. Offensively, Melky Cabrera has continued to hit well, in the top ten in the American League in batting average (.310 going into tonight’s game), including the lone extra-base hit – a double that scored two runs – off Rangers pitcher Darvish in Hutcison’s winning effort. The Blue Jays also lead the American League, as a team, in homers with 59, nine ahead of the next team, the Chicago White Sox.
5/16/14 - Toronto Blue Jays ace Mark Buehrle will take the mound this weekend against the Texas Rangers in search of his major league leading eighth victory against just one loss. His 2.04 ERA is tops in the American League; another Jays starter, Drew Hutchison, is 15th in the AL in strikeouts with 49. Offensively, Melky Cabrera leads the majors in hits with 57, and is fourth in the AL in batting average at .320; while Jose Bautista continues his slugging ways with 10 homers, a .426 OBP, and a slugging percentage of .546 – good for an OPS of .972 to go along with his .292 batting average. The Jays are 1 ½ games behind Baltimore in the always tough American League East.
5/9/14 - Since starting the month of May, the Toronto Blue Jays have won six of their last eight games, including a four game home-and-home sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies which saw Mark Buehrle collect his sixth win against just one loss, and R.A. Dickey square his record at 3-3. The Jays have had to win in order to keep pace in a very tightly competitive American League East Division, where a margin of just two games separates first-place Baltimore from fourth-place Boston. Buehrle’s six wins are tops among AL pitchers, and his ERA of 1.91 places him tied for second (with Oakland’s Sonny Gray) behind Detroit’s Max Scherzer. Another Toronto starter, Drew Hutchison, is tied for 10th leaguewide with three other players in strikeouts with 44. Offensively, a pair of Jays – Jose Bautista and Colby Rasmus – each have nine homers, tied for third in the AL behind rookie Jose Abreu and a resurgent Albert Pujols.
4/18/14 - After winning the opening game of their series with Minnesota, then having the next game postponed a day, the Toronto Blue Jays dropped both halves of the resulting doubleheader on April 17, 7-0 and 9-5. The Jays were shut down by Twins starter Kyle Gibson, who tossed eight innings of four-hit shutout baseball, while R.A. Dickey lasted just 4 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks. The Jays offense woke up in the second game, with Jose Bautista slamming his league leading sixth home run; but Sergio Santos uncorked three wild pitches in the bottom of the eighth inning to allow Minnesota to pull ahead. Even worse, Jays pitchers walked eight straight hitters in that fateful inning.
4/14/14 - Currently tied with Tampa and the Evil Empire Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays are trying to stay competitive in probably, top to bottom, the toughest division in Major League Baseball. After splitting their season-opening series in Tampa-St. Petersburg, the Jays returned home to Rogers Centre for half a dozen games against the Yanks and Houston. R.A. Dickey collected his first win over the season over the Bronx Bombers in the middle game of that three-game set, throwing 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, along with three relievers for the 4-0 win. The Jays then claimed two out of three from the visiting Astros, falling 6-4 in the rubber game of the set. This weekend the Jays make their first stop of a three city road trip, in Baltimore for three; next week the Jays head for Minneapolis and Cleveland for three each against these Central Division opponents.
4/8/14 - The Toronto Blue Jays got off to an awesome start for being AL East underdogs, winning their first series over the Tampa Bay Rays. Though the Blue Jays dropped two to the New York Yankees, including their sold-out home opener, they've scored 26 runs in seven games (13 from home runs) and have a chance to bounce back against the Houston Astros at home. This weekend they'll be taking on other division foes, the Baltimore Orioles, and you can get in for just $4-$5 from Tuesday to Thursday (4/8-4/10)! Spend just $9 on Toronto Blue Jays tickets to see them take on the Orioles at Camden Yards Saturday and Sunday.
4/7/14 - After hosting – and winning – a pair of exhibitions against the New York Mets in Montreal, the first Major League Baseball games to be played in that city since the end of the 2004 season, and the departure of the Expos to become the Washington Nationals, the Toronto Blue Jays packed their bags again and headed south for their season-opening four game set with the Tampa Bay Rays. The Jays and Rays ended up splitting the four games, dropping the season opener 9-2 and the April 3 game by a 7-2 count, and winning the middle pair, 4-2 and 3-0. R.A. Dickey and Brandon Morrow were saddled with the losses; Dickey gave up six runs, all earned, on five hits (including three doubles) while walking six and striking out four in five innings, while Morrow allowed four runs, all earned, on seven hits in just over five innings of work. The wins were behind the pitching of Drew Hutchison and Mark Buehrle. Also, shortstop Jose Reyes is back on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.
4/1/14 - The Toronto Blue Jays are kicking off their season with a long trip down south against the Tampa Bay Rays. Yesterday, thanks to an R.A. Dickey meltdown following his impressive spring, the Blue Jays dropped their opener with a 2-9 loss. Far worse than one loss, however, was the injury sustained by crucial shortstop Jose Reyes early on Monday. After his first at-bat, Reyes re-injured his hamstring while running to first base. He was immediately placed on the disabled list and will be out for at least 15 days. The Blue Jays have the opportunity to show some resiliency and make up for their injured comrade by winning out their opening series: tickets are available for tonight's match ($27 in Upper Reserve) and tomorrow's game ($17 in the Outfield).
3/28/14 - Congratulations, R.A. Dickey. You’re going to be a movie star. Or at least you’ll have a movie star playing you. USA Today’s For the Win reports that Dickey’s autobiographical best seller, “Wherever I Wind Up,” has had its movie rights picked up by a production company; FTW says that the company plans to hire Buzz Bissinger, best known for his book on Texas high school football, “Friday Night Lights,” to write the screenplay. The production company, a new outfit called A Thing or Two Productions, is apparently teaming up with TriStar Pictures to produce the film. The book tells Dickey’s story of recovery from numerous setbacks, reaching his pinnacle in 2012 by winning the National League’s Cy Young Award while with the New York Mets.
3/25/14 - The Blue Jays are saying bye to Florida—but not for long! Toronto ends Grapefruit League play this week, but they'll be back in the Sunshine State to take on the Tampa Bays Rays for Opening Day. You can still get cheap Toronto Blue Jays tickets for a number of preseason matchups including the final two Grapefruit games: Wednesday against the Yankees (get-in for $21) and Thursday against the Phillies (get-in for $19). Back-to-back exhibition games against the New York Mets in Montreal are also available this Friday (one ticket left for $213 Field Level) and Saturday (32 tickets left from $103-$264). If you want to catch them back in Florida for Opening Day, you can score Toronto Blue Jays tickets for as low as $24! And, if the Jose Reyes injury is on your mind, don't worry Blue Jays fans! Today's MRI revealed that the star shortstop is only out with a minor hamstring strain, granting the club much-needed relief over what they feared was a more serious injury. Reyes is now day-to-day with one week left to rest before the first pitch of the year.
3/21/14 - How bad was 2013 for Canada’s baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays? Consider this: The Jays had one of the worst seasons for injuries of any team in the bigs last year. Edwin Encarnacion, the team’s 2013 power man, missed 20 games. Jose Bautista, the American League’s home run champ in 2010-11, missed 44 games in 2013, as did Colby Rasmus. Brett Lawrie missed 55 games, while at the top of the list was infielder Jose Reyes, who lost 69 games on the disabled list. Obviously the ultimate success of this year’s edition of the Jays will hinge on how many games each of these players don’t miss – not to mention the rest of the starting squad, both position players and starting pitching. Grantland’s Jonah Keri, in his preview of the AL East, suggests that the depth of the division means the Jays will have to have everything come together just right if they are to have hope at a wild-card slot this fall.
3/18/14 - The Toronto Blue Jays have two weeks left to prepare for their on-the-road Opening Day game against the Tampa Bay Rays on March 31; tickets for this match are $81 on average. Fans are far more excited for the Blue Jay's first home opener, in which Brandon Morrow is slated to start on the mound opposite touted import Masahiro Tanaka of the New York Yankees. This game, on April 4, is averaging $131. If you can't wait to see your boys in blue, catch them for cheap before Spring Training ends! Toronto Blue Jays tickets start at $31 this Wednesday against Philadelphia and drop to $29 this Saturday against Detroit.
3/14/14 - They lost out on free agent Ervin Santana, but that just means Brandon Morrow is still looking forward to being “the man” in the Toronto rotation. A recent piece in the Toronto Sun indicated that Jays brass including manager John Gibbons and general manager Alex Anthopoulos “expect great things” from Morrow, who was just 2-3 with 42 strikeouts, a 1.49 WHIP, and a 5.63 ERA in 10 starts last year before experiencing soreness in his right forearm. Morrow also put on some bulk in the offseason, adding about 20 pounds to his 6’3” frame, leading Gibbons to quip, “He looks like a good, strong, starting, durable pitcher.”
3/10/14 - With Opening Day exactly three weeks away, the Toronto Blue Jays are running out of time to put the final touches on their roster before the regular season takes flight. Rumors sprouted long ago that the organization would sign top free-agent Ervin Santana to a one-year deal around $14 million, but now a bidding war has begun with Minnesota and Baltimore also in the mix. The Blue Jays are using fellow Dominican stars Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Reyes to try and talk Santana into taking the shorter deal with Toronto in the next couple days. Dunedin, FL will see a lot of baseball action this week with five upcoming games at awesome prices: Toronto Blue Jays tickets start at $24 against Tampa Bay (3/12), $18 against Houston (3/13), $24 against Boston (3/14) and $17 against Baltimore (3/16).
3/3/14 - After making a huge offseason splash before the 2013 season, the Toronto Blue Jays found they still couldn’t keep up in the highly competitive American League East, finishing in last place with a disappointing 74-88 record. It’s been over 20 years since the Jays became the first team from outside the United States to capture a World Series trophy, claiming back to back crowns in 1992-93; but as always in these Spring Training days, there is much hope and optimism in the Jays’ camp in Dunedin, Fla. Slugger Jose Bautists is hoping for more success in 2014 than his injury plagued 2013 campaign, while infielder Jose Reyes said to be “relieved” to have a second year with Toronto, according to ESPN.
2/12/14 - Most of the Toronto Blue Jays have already left their northern homes for Spring Training down in Florida as part of the Grapefruit League, go and join them! Players don't officially report until 2/16, and you're first chance to see the squad in action is 2/27 when they face the Pittsburgh Pirates. Toronto Blue Jays tickets for their AL East spring faceoff are only $7. Stay tuned on the Blue Jays, the organization is reportedly in talks to bag one of the right-handers left on the market Ervin Santana or Ubaldo Jimenez.
1/30/14 - The Toronto Blue Jays have been relatively quiet this winter, especially compared to the big splashes they made in previous years, but now's the time to make some noise, as spring is rapidly approaching and Toronto is still lacking a couple starting pitchers. The front office reportedly has eyes on Ubaldo Jimenez and Ervin Santana to fill out the positions. Score some Toronto Blue Jays tickets for $38 on average to see who takes the mound for Spring Training!
Last offseason, the Toronto Blue Jays made two huge trades with Mets and Marlins for a number of touted players. The moves did not pay off in the least and left the Blue Jays at the bottom of the AL East. This time around, GM Alex Anthopoulos is going in another direction, staying quiet and pinching pennies all winter.
That’s not to say that Toronto hasn’t made any moves this offseason, in fact, the Blue Jays have signed Dioner Navarro, reacquired Eric Katz, and banked Chris Getz. Still, the Blue Jays are left with a problematic bullpen and two gaping holes in the starting rotation. The franchise is reportedly in talks to land Ervin Santana and/or Ubaldo Jimenez in the next week. The offseason is not over yet, Toronto fans, with a month until Spring Training, there’s still time to bag a big-name impact player off of the free agent market. Get your Toronto Blue Jays tickets now and see if the past years of spending will finally come to profit this season!
2013 figures to be one of the most significant seasons for the Blue Jays in recent memory. In 2012, the Jays managed a mediocre 73-89, good for 4th in the AL East and 20 games out of the MLB playoffs. However, their extensive offseason activity has many fans and odds-makers looking to the World Series. Coming into
Spring Training, Toronto's the favorite in Vegas to win the World Series.
After manager John Farrell was released to take the same position with the Red Sox, the Jays rehired former manager John Gibbons. Gibbons will have a stable of new talent to work with. In free agency, the Blue Jays signed 2012 All-Star MVP Melky Cabrera and infielder Maicer Izturis. In a move that sent shockwaves through the baseball world, Toronto made a blockbuster trade with the Miami Marlins, acquiring all-stars Mark Buerhle, Josh Johnson, and Jose Reyes. The Jays were also able to acquire 2012 NL CY Young winner R.A. Dickey from the Mets and sign him to a 2-year contract extension. Dickey will be the opening day starter on 4/2 at home against the Indians.
It remains to be seen whether all the new talent can mesh with Jose Bautista and the remaining 2012 Jays to challenge the Yankees, Orioles, Rays, and Red Sox, for supremacy in the ultra-competitive AL East. Fans hoping to see how the season plays out at the Rogers Centre can expect to pay an average of about $84 per ticket for Blue Jays tickets, good for 10th highest in the league and 8% higher than league average. Despite their all-star roster, the Toronto Blue Jays tickets only average $66 on the road, 20th highest in the league.
