So I don't know anything about Vlad. Should I be excited?

He's very, very thicc.



I assume that gets most people going. He really brings the boom boom.

So he can hit is what I'm getting out of this conversation lol.

He is the highest rated hitting prospect, maybe ever.

Call it the Valddy and Drury Show.

The Jays Vladimir Guerrero Jr. & Brandon Drury were instrumental in giving Toronto a 4-2 win over the A's in the ninth inning.  Talk about dramatics.  Guerrero hit his first professional hit, a double, a liner to right field which landed him at second base.  With Hernandez whiffing, on came Brandon Drury and with him a walk-off two-run homer!  It was Drury's first ever career walk-off homer.

Wow. 

Jays starter Marcus Stroman pitched seven strong innings but didn't get the win.  That went to Jays closer Ken Giles.

What a night for both Guerrero and Drury!

Jays win 7-1 over the As.

Jays starter Aaron Sanchez limited Oakland to one run (unearned) pitching well and getting the win.

The Blue Jays got RBIs from Grichuk with 2, Sogard, Hernandez, Tellez, and Jansen.

Cute!  Vladdy & the fans...

Im enjoying the way this iteration of the Jays generates offense. Another walk off.

Not only was there a Smoak walk-off game-winning single, there was Brandon Drurys three-run homer that tied the game up, and there was reliever Elvis Luciano getting the win and...buh bye Oakland.  Beautiful sunny day!

As someone who hasn't followed the Jays for a couple of years now (and only peripherally at that), who is Brandon Drury and why does he keep crushing the A's with  homeruns.

Drury was part of our return for J Happ along with McKinney. Drury however was the centerpiece of our return.  Was ranked very high on prospect lists, had a few injuries along the way.  Looks like a keeper!

The Blue Jays (14-14) travel to Angel Stadium for a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels (12-17).

The Angels are currently in last place in the A.L. West division but sport some mighty hitters in Albert Pujols and Mike Trout.

The Blue Jays are coming off a sweep of the Oakland As from their most recent homestand.  Toronto has reached .500  good enough for third place in the A.L. East, up on the fourth-place Bosox and 5.0 GBL Tampa Bay Rays (with the Yankees hot on their heels).

Now the question everyone is asking...how did Vladimir Guerrero Jr. do in his debut weekend as a bona fide Blue Jay?  He went 3 for 12 and didnt disappoint with his hitting and fielding (3rd base).
We all know he will only get better and has already given the Jays that title of legitimacy.   
Not just Guerrero but Brandon Drury has come into his own as well. 

Recently the Jays fine tuned their offence and are getting the results they sought in the process, thanks in part to skipper Montoyo who is getting to know his roster and the rotation with every passing game.

Batter up!

GO JAYS GO!

Despite his record, Stroman has been quite good this early season...

Marcus Stroman RH Blue Jays  1-3  1.43 ERA

It's a bit like measuring goalies by win-loss. They're not in charge of scoring goals or batting in runs.

The Jays have scored a total of 15 runs in Stroman's 6 outings this year.  That's 2.5 runs/game in games where Stroman pitched.  That same offense has scored 8 runs while Stroman has been on the mound (1.93 runs/start).  Stroman has given up 6 earned runs in 6 starts (9 runs overall).  The bullpen has given up 9 runs in Stroman's starts over 16 1/3 innings (4.96 ERA)

The offense has sucked for Stroman.  The bullpen has sucked for Stroman.
