I just did sportnets top 40 jays. I think Delgado was number one. Delgado does not get the credit he deserve.For me Halliday was one of the most overated jays. When he was healthy he was amazing but he was injured way too much.
Halladay was a work horse. 4 out of his last six seasons here he had over 225 innings, once going up to 264. One year he had 140 innings and broke his leg on a line drive.
I would argue he was barely injured.

Hallady, thanks for the laugh.

So we had Richard Griffin call Stroman out for essentially lacking leadership skills and here we have Stroman standing up, and rightfully so, for Osuna . Betances had no business being an All Star.

Ignore the trashy headline seems someone has it out for Stroman

Don't think Stroman get's that much recognition in Toronto either. Seems like his personality rubs some people the wrong way, kind of like Subban.
He will be sorely missed, when he leaves or is traded, on and off the field. Love what he brings to the Jays.

Off to Detroit tomorrow! Hopefully Sanchez brings his A game and it's the start of good run.

Richard Griffin doesn't even watch the blue jays game or else he'd know that Stroman is the kind of team mate any player would love to have. He's always first guy waiting on deck when someone hits a hr and is always cheering from the dugout. No leadership skills, maybe yes and maybe no but perhaps the bluejays can find someone else can fill that role.

I emailed him about his article and got no response. BTW, what you described IS a part of leadership.

The Blue Jays have to go roughly 48-25 the rest of the season to reach 90 wins (presumably good enough for a Wild Card spot).

- Hopefully Smoak's first half was not a fluke like Mike Saunders disappearing and batting like a minor leaguer in the 2nd half of last year.
- Pillar had a career high 3 walks in one game. A month ago he would strike out swinging at literally any breaking ball regardless of where it was thrown.
- Barney grounded out to shortstop as usual but actually advanced the runner for once. (Barney is 2nd on the team in grounded out into double plays, only behind Morales despite having far fewer at bats).

Team is in trouble if we have to rely on those 3 players in the 2nd half. Pressure should be on JD, JB and Tulo to perform.

Jays are sending in Bowelslinger to pitch in relief for an injured Liriano. Might as well forfeit right now.

Bad luck for Bolsinger, gets a groundball but it goes right through the 5-6 hole. :(

Finally scored on Fullmer...

Just don't get Gibbons. Detroit is reeling and rather than pitching his best starters he brings in his 2 number 5 starters, Liriano today and Estrada tommorrow.
I know he want to save Happ and Stroman for Boston but shouldn't you try to win games you have a better chance of winning. Having pitched with the Twins Liriano had awful numbers against the Tigers too.

Yes the Jays scored one run but pitchers pitch differently when you a have big lead.

I think gibby needs to roll the dice a bit here in this next stretch and find a way to give Montero some more playing time. We need that bat in the lineup - alternatively use him as a pinch hitter early in the game with runners on and Barney/Goins even Pillar at the plate.
