Blue Jays: Could We See A Six-Man Rotation Used In 2021?

Coming off a shortened season where Blue Jays pitchers logged less then half of their usual inning totals, it’ll be interesting to see how teams manage their workload this coming season.

Photo by CARLO ALLEGRI/AFP via Alexander Scott Gonzalez | SS | 1994-2001 This is the Alex Gonzalez who played shortstop for us back in the 1990s. Not the Alex Gonzalez nicknamed “Sea Bass,” who played half a season for us, in 2010 (and was pretty good), and we flipped him to the Braves for Yunel Escobar. We go from an excellent shortstop for two seasons to a shortstop whose peak wasn’t as high but who played 8 seasons for the Blue Jays. Alex Gonzalez was born April 8, 1973, in Miami, Florida. Drafted in the 14th round of the 1991 amateur draft, he ended up...

Blue Jays can’t allow themselves to be bullied by New York

There was an awful lot of chatter about the Blue Jays on social media on Friday night, but unfortunately most of the discussion was pretty negative.

Friday Bantering: International Signings, Yankees sign LeMahieu

Photo by Christian Petersen/ There is actual Blue Jays news this morning. The team has made some international signings. The big-name is Manuel Beltre, a 16-year-old shortstop from the Dominican Republic. He is getting $2.35 million. A “really advanced hitter” is the description everyone is going with. I guess the question is what does a 16-year-old do to be a really advanced hitter. MLB.com says: Where Beltre ultimately ends up playing as he makes his way through the Minor Leagues is to be determined. He has sure hands with good range and a quick transfer. He...
