|Grading The Deal: Jays Get Rasmus For Newly-Acquired Jackson|
The Blue Jays made a pair of trades within hours on Wednesday that should bring them a little closer to contention in the AL East.
|2010 Season Preview: Toronto Blue Jays|
JP Riccardi and Roy Halladay are out. Alex Anthopoulos is in and though the Jays absolutely won't be in the playoffs, their rebuilding efforts may be shorter than expected.
|What Halladay Gives You|
As Roy Halladay sits on the trading block, all sides can compare him to a 2000 Curt Schilling, who was dealt by Philadelphia to Arizona and went on to win three World Series titles.
|Are The Jays For Real?|
The question all Jays fans have on their mind is this: will the hot streak continue, or is this just a mirage?
|2009 Blue Jays Spring Summit|
The Blue Jays didn't do much this off-season, much to the dismay of their fans, who aren't too happy with general manager J.P. Ricciardi.
|2009 Season Preview: Toronto Blue Jays|
The Jays were easily the best team in baseball on the mound in 2008, but their bats failed them in disappointing fashion. How can they compete against the Rays, Red Sox and Yankees this season?
|Big Aspirations For Jays' Snider|
At five-foot-eleven, 250 pounds, one might think that Travis Snider is more suited to play linebacker in the NFL than be the left fielder of the future for the Blue Jays.
|Auditing The Toronto Blue Jays 2008 Season|
Despite the best pitching staff in baseball, the Jays were bystanders looking on at the Rays bust up the Yankee/Sox AL East monopoly.
|2008 Season Preview: Toronto Blue Jays|
If Toronto was in the AL West, it would be a whole lot easier to like their playoff chances, but the AL East will be even more brutal in 2008.
|The State Of The Franchise: Toronto Blue Jays|
Despite below average seasons from Vernon Wells, Lyle Overbay and Troy Glaus, the Blue Jays did manage to be four games over .500 and also had one of the finest Pythagorean records for any team who didn?t qualify the playoffs. Over the next two or three years, the Blue Jays must be opportunistic in the AL East chase because both the Yankees and Red Sox will be transitioning.
|Are The Jays Really Ready To Win The East?|
The Blue Jays are everyone's dark horse favorites to supplant the Yankees and Red Sox in the very difficult American League East. We breakdown the rosters position-by-position to see how real the possibility is for Canada's team.
If there ever was a player rebuilt in the mold of Lenny Dykstra, it?s Reed Johnson. He is an all-out hustle player, who chips in home runs, steals bases, plays good defense, gets on base, and most importantly, he enjoys the game. Johnson is also the key to the Toronto offense.
|How Many More Mistakes Can Gibbons Make?|
When John Gibbons had the "interim" banner removed from his managerial title in 2005, it was widely regarded as a good move. "Gibby" was seen as a different kind of manager in the clubhouse; a players' coach and a manager who could do no wrong to his players. In 2006, some wrongs have moved to the forefront and have caused baseball observers to question whether or not Gibbons is the right fit for this up-and-coming Jays squad.
|Dr. Gibby Or: How I Went From Bullpen Catcher To Manager In Two Years|
Until a month ago, I had a fleeting hope that Cito Gaston was still the manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. Little did I know their current and very entertaining manager began his tenure with the Toronto organization as the bullpen catcher back in 2002. Theo Epstein got his start in San Diego holding a radar gun, so there's nothing wrong with ladder climbing.
|Toronto Hurts Market For Other Clubs|
With their recent deal being reported that would give closer B.J. Ryan $47 million over five years, Toronto has once again fell prey to the plague that always keeps small-market teams away from contending. The plague is wasting money the only chance you actually have some and then placing your franchise in even worse shape than before.
