Blue Jays: Septem-Bo – Looking back at Bichette’s Magical Month

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette is coming off the best month of his career in September. Bichette hit seemingly everything in sight and, in turn, raised his numbers approaching and surpassing the high bar set with his sublime 2021 campaign. More importantly, Bo’s productivity led to the best calendar month of the season and […] Blue Jays: Septem-Bo – Looking back at Bichette’s Magical Month - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Blue Jays: Alek Manoah has earned the ace role for the playoffs

The Blue Jays have been very fortunate with the lightning quick development of sophomore starter Alek Manoah, who should be the team’s Game 1 starter in the playoffs. John Schneider hasn’t really commented much about how the Blue Jays are going to line up their rotation in the playoffs, and to be fair, it’s a […] Blue Jays: Alek Manoah has earned the ace role for the playoffs - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Blue Jays clinch: What’s left to play for in the regular season?

The Blue Jays are officially headed to the postseason as a Wild Card team. What do they have left to play for in the regular season? For most of the fan base this is a fairly obvious question, but I know not everyone tracks this team as obsessively as I do, or as many of […] Blue Jays clinch: What’s left to play for in the regular season? - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

While the Jays’ officially clinched a playoff spot yesterday, Wild Card order and therefore homefield advantage and opponent are still on the table. The most ideal situation is for the Jays to host, which they need to outright beat both Seattle and Tampa Bay in order to do thanks to tie breakers, which makes the Mariners essentially 0.5 games back and the Rays 1.0 game back.

The Blue Jays are heading to the playoffs but there is still work to be done

This time last year, the Toronto Blue Jays were on the outside looking in when it came to playoff baseball. The Tampa Bay Rays had locked up the AL East and the Boston Red Sox were sitting first in the AL Wild Card while the New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners were tied for the […] The Blue Jays are heading to the playoffs but there is still work to be done - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Jays Clinch Wildcard

Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Well. That was kind of anticlimactic but it’s done. With the Red Sox’ defeat of the Orioles this afternoon in Fenway, the Blue Jays are officially guaranteed to hold at least the third wildcard spot. So thanks for that, Boston. It’s been a long and frequently frustrating season, with a team that has rarely felt like its playing to its full potential, but they’ve survived and will at least get a chance to make something happen in October. You can’t ask for more than that. On a related note, I want to talk for a second about...

Despite the loss to New York, the Blue Jays’ playoff magic number sits at one

These past three games have been challenging for the Blue Jays and their fans. The fanfare surrounding Aaron Judge and the AL Home Run record is at an all-time high, especially after he tied Yankees legend Roger Maris last night with his 61st blast, and also because the Jays are so close to clinching a […] Despite the loss to New York, the Blue Jays’ playoff magic number sits at one - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Blue Jays: An early prediction of the postseason roster

The Blue Jays have just six games left in the regular season, and soon they’ll have to make some tough decisions about their postseason roster. Once the playoffs begin the rosters will drop back to their usual number of 26, which means they will be down two players from the group they’ve carried throughout September.

Yankees beat Jays 8-3

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports Well, as we all expected a Yankees team record to be tied tonight, and sure enough Gerrit Cole tied Ron Guidry’s 248 strikeouts in a season. A round of polite applause for him. Other than that, it wasn’t much of a game. The Jays’ offence was feeble outside of a single outburst in the sixth, and the pitching was mostly bad. Mitch White was never really in it. He walked Aaron Judge to, as is the Blue Jays’ house style, to open the game, and the followed with a walk of Oswaldo Cabrera and back to back singles from Josh Donaldson and...
