It will happen sometime this year.  No timetable yet for Vlad at least.

The Blue Jays (8-12j go on to Oakland to play a three-game series at Oakland Coliseum home of the Oakland As (11-10).

The As (or Athletics) are at nearly .500 ball in their A.L. West Division and sport two former Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada and the recently traded Kendrys Morales.  We wont be seeing Estada in the lineup for hes been placed on the 10-day IL due to injury.

The Athletics are third in terms of home run production as well as in runs scored.  Having Khris Davis as your Major League home run leader can only help.

The Blue Jays just recently took a series for the first time this season and on the road too, winning three out of four over the Minnesota Twins.

The Jays are third in the league in terms of starting pitching ERA, with the best going to Matt Shoemaker & Marcus Stroman.

Teoscar Hernandez is third in fielding assists.  Hernandez had a dominant series against the Twins.  Another Jay whos bats are swinging loudly is Justin Smoak.  It certainly didnt take him long to get back into the swing of things (no pun intended) after returning from an injury.  Smoak leads the Jays with 13 RBIs.

With Toronto slowly attempting to even out their w/l record, another sweep here against the As would be most welcome.

GO JAYS GO!

The Stro show comes alive!

Yes, Jays starter Marcus Stroman pitched eight innings throwing six strikeouts and limiting the As to one run.  Excellent performance from the Stro man.
Closer Ken Giles preserved the win in the ninth.

The Jays got offensive contributions from the likes of Danny Jansen, Socrates Brito, Drury & McKinney.

The victory puts the Jays within 1GB third place NY Yankees in their division.

Ooooh...Oak got smoked!

In a 10-1 thumping of the Oakland As Saturday night, the Blue Jays victory came at a price.  Jays starter Matt Shoemaker was forced to leave the game early due to a knee injury.  To have the Jays best starting pitcher go down isnt something a team like a Toronto wants to see happen, certainly not at a time when theyre riding a mini wave of success.

Rowdy Tellez with 3 RBIs led the charge on the scoreboard.

Reliever Sam Gaviglio was credited with the win.

The San Francisco Giants (9-14) roll into town for a two-game interleague series against the Blue Jays (11-12).

Former Blue Jay and fan favourite, Kevin Pillar, makes his return to the Rogers Centre in a Giants uniform.  San Francisco, by the way, is mired in last place in their N.L. West division.

Th Jays, whove won six of their last seven games, all on the road, have found success in improving their w/l record helped in part by their offence of which Justin Smoak is so much a part of, and also by some stellar pitching performances mainly by their starters.

It is unfortunate to have had their best starting pitcher this season, Matt Shoemaker be sidelined for the rest of the year with a knee sprain.  Shoemaker was also among the leagues best before the injury occurred.

Looking forward in seeing the Blue Jays continue rising theyre currently third in their division.  Good job, guys.  Keep up the good works.

GO JAYS GO!

Close, but...

Giants prevail 7-6 over the Jays.  The Jays Rowdy Tellez made things close with his eighth inning Grand Slam.

Prior to the start of the game, former Blue Jay Kevin Pillar, now a Giant, was given a tribute and a standing ovation by the crowd.  An emotional few moments for Kevin Superman Pillar.

The Oakland Athletics (or As) (14-13) come to Toronto for a three-game series against the Blue Jays (11-14) at the Rogers Centre.

While this series features two third place teams, the real story is Vladimir Guerreros being called up and taking his place on the roster.

All eyes will be on the #1 prospect in baseball (hes Canadian-born) as hes easily the best prospect that the Blue Jays have ever drafted.  The most touted which also brings great expectations, but Guerreros no stranger to the bat.  Hes naturally gifted and is seen as one of the cornerstones in the clubs future rise to respectability.

Former Jay Kendrys Morales makes his return to Toronto this time in an As uniform.  Another former Blue Jay, pitcher Marco Estrada, is still on the IL.

Let the Vlad show begin!

GO JAYS GO!
