Bo Bichette Is in the Midst of a Major Slump

A Bo Bichette resurgence right now could be more valuable than any blockbuster trade the Blue Jays could’ve made at the deadline. After a monster 2021 campaign in which he slashed .298/.343/.484 with 29 homeruns, 102 RBI’s, and an American League leading 191 hits, expectations were sky-high for Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette coming into […] Bo Bichette Is in the Midst of a Major Slump - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Deadline Day Open Thread

Deadline Day Open Thread

Photo by Mark Blinch/ The Jays haven’t made a deadline deal yet. There are all sorts of rumours that they were in on Castillo and in on Montas. And that they have talked about Juan Soto. I just read someone suggesting Bo Bichette would have to be part of a trade for Soto, which would be interesting. And there is a lot of talk about Noah Syndergaard, which seems much more possible to me. Beyond that, I’m still expecting a couple of relievers to be added. It is an interesting spot for the Jays. They talk about wanting to be a contender for years, so it is hard to...

Saturday Bantering: Bichette and Springer Back In the Lineup

Photo by Mark Blinch/ And Castillo Down, Thornton Up The Jays made a roster move: Max Castillo was sent back to Buffalo. Trent Thornton is back in Toronto. I'm not sure why, I liked Castillo, but Thornton has been good this year. Trent has a 4.38 ERA in 26 games this year. But then Max has a 3.05 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 20.2 innings. Perhaps it is because Max won’t be pitching until they know if Manoah can make his next start. The team says Alek Manoah is feeling better today. Over at Sportsnet, Jeff Blair has a story on Bo Bichette playing daily. The...

Why the Blue Jays don’t need to prioritize a lefty bat

The Toronto Blue Jays are a team built around their lineup. Guys like Vladimir Guerrero Jr., George Springer, and Bo Bichette are expected to anchor the lineup every day and have done that so far this year. However, there have been surprises as well. Alejandro Kirk has blossomed into an all-star and one of the […] Why the Blue Jays don’t need to prioritize a lefty bat - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

On Bo Bichette

On Bo Bichette

Photo by Mark Blinch/ We are ten games into the Bo Bichette hitting cleanup era, and we are 8-2 over those games. So it is working, right? Well, Bo is hitting .256/.318/.333 with 4 doubles in his 10 hits. He also has 4 walks, which is kind of curious. He’s walking more batting cleanup than he was in the two-spot. Is it time to move him out of that spot? It is a small sample size and all, but then we were told he should hit better in that (more runners on base or something). He does better with runners on base, we were told. Course, if you look it up, he’s hitting...
