Jays lose 4-3 but not before some highlight reel catch by Guerrero Jr. on Pujols:

Valiant comeback falls short of the mark as the Jays tumble to the Angels 6-3.

Starter Stroman took the loss. 

With the two consecutive home runs, a solo by Tellez and the a two-run homer by Grichuk, the Blue Jays are now second in the A.L. in the RISP stat batting .290.  The Texas Rangers are tops (.294j while the Seattle Mariners are third (.283) behind the Jays.  The Yankees trail in fourth spot (.272).

The Blue Jays (14-17) arrive at Globe Life Park to play a three-game series against the Texas Rangers (14-15).

The Rangers, third in the A.L. West, are second in the league for Stolen Bases with 25.

The Blue Jays, third in the A.L. East, rank third in the league in team pitching with a 3.40 ERA.

This Blue Jays/Rangers tilt will have non of the bravado or animosity displayed in the past between these two teams, as Jose Bautista is no longer with Toronto and Rougned Odor has been on the IL, just recently activated for duty.  Oh of course, there s always the possibility of these two teams re-igniting their high octane run-ins but better they save that for the post-season (if there will be one for either of them, that is).

Toronto got swept by the Angels in their most recent series and so the Blue Jays looking to regain their winning ways.  Fans are eagerly awaiting for Guerrero Jr., to hit his first home run.  Soon...soon...

GO JAYS GO!  and GO VLADDY!

A 1-0 win for the Jays  in the 12th inning.

Clever bunting by Casey Jansen that culminated in a throwing error by Rangers reliever Jurado gave the Jays the winning run.


Jays starter Trent Thornton pitched a gem as he limited the Rangers to just one hit.

Reliever Daniel Hudson was credited with the win, and Giles closed out the inning with the save.

Jays lose 8-5 to the Rangers.

Jays starter Thomas Pannone was rocked for seven of the eight runs.

Heres Guerrero Jr.s RBI:

Better days ahead.

Jays starter Clay Bucholtz got swamped with seven runs in four innings and was saddled with the loss.  Not a very supportive offence this afternoon by his teammates as the Rangers feasted on Bucholtz and limited the Jays on the bases.

The Minnesota Twins (20-12) come to the Rogers Centre for a three-game series against the Blue Jays (15-19).

The Minnesota Twins occupy first place in the A.L. Central division albeit barely above the second-place Cleveland Indians.  Baseball fans are left wondering what of the Indians now that ace pitcher Kory Kluber is on the shelf.  How this will impact the race for first between these two teams remains to be seen, even this early in the season.

The Twins are third in the league in home runs scored with 56.

The Blue Jays are coming off getting swept by the Texas Rangers three zip.  Many saw how the Rangers stymied the Jays offence even when Toronto attempted several comebacks.  There are times when the Jays do everything right and then there are...oh well...

The good news though is that the Jays are still third in the league in pitching ERA (3.44), and the weekend series with the Rangers saw Vladdy Guerrero Jr., get his first MLB RBI.  Hes still striking out every so often but will eventually improve as he gets to know the angles & the pitches better.  Still, Jays fans are happy for him.

Toronto has now slipped to fourth in their division overtaken by the Red Sox.

Cmon Blue Jays, lets get the win column going again!

GO JAYS GO!

For the second game in a row (the Jays lost 8-0 Monday night), Toronto was shut out again last night 3-0.

Unlike starter Marcus Stroman who was tagged for five of the eight runs by the Twins Monday night, Aaron Sanchez fared better on the mound giving up three runs but with good ball control.

 Too bad that the Jays have been unable to muster any offence of late.  This has got to change, and soon, too.

Not worth writing about.

Jays lose 9-1 and thus get swept by the Twins.  Blah!

Montoyo is mad:


On Guerreros major league hardship:
Quote
Theyre pitching them like they know him, Montoyo said. Nobodys got more attention in baseball than that kid. Theyre pitching him pretty tough. There are no secrets. They know how to get you out.

In a way, thats good because hes going to make an adjustment and hes going to hit. We know that. You cant forget hes just 20 years old.

Watching Vladdy is worth the price of admission.  Watching the Jays swing into air is as exciting as watching a pot dry. 

The Blue Jays and their measly offence need to wake  it up.
