What You Need to Know: Another Bad Night for the Blue Jays

4

Daniel Rathman

Toronto's nightmare season continues with a blown lead against Los Angeles.

The Tuesday Takeaway
Ben Lindbergh wrote on Monday that while “Toronto is still disappointing … the Dodgers are on their way to being about as good as expected.” Never was that more evident than in the middle match between those teams on Tuesday night.

The Blue Jays jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning, on an RBI double by Jose Reyes and a run-scoring single by Jose Bautista. The Dodgers charged back in the top of the third, on an RBI double by Andre Ethier and a run-scoring single by Mark Ellis. But the Blue Jays countered those equalizers with two more runs, on a homer by Mark DeRosa and a sacrifice fly by Brett Lawrie, in the ensuing half-inning.

Paul & Doug discuss what is wrong with Jon Lester since mid-May and dive into Strasburg's season. Next GOTW: Francisco Liriano at Mike Leake

Stephen Strasburg gives the guys a very interesting start to discuss as he shows flashes of brilliance in a start that ended up rather mediocre statistically speaking. Robbie Erlin suffers a tough day, but the outlook isn't quite as grim.

The Blue Jays are on fire. What credit does John Gibbons deserve?

On Sunday afternoon the Blue Jays won their 11th game in a row. The win, which pushed Toronto's record to 38-36, assured them a share of fourth place and another day of an above-.500 record.

What may have seemed like small beans compared to preseason expectations amounts to large beans now. Consider this: the Jays had not spent a night this season with a better-than-.500 record until last weekend. Entering the final week in June, the Blue Jays are within three games of a Wild Card spot and five games of the American League East lead. The burden of responsibility placed on manager John Gibbons has eased. It's a good thing, too, because Gibbons has done a solid job throughout the season.

Painting the Black: The Improbability of the Closer

1

R.J. Anderson

Toronto's closer (and non-closer) speak to the difficulty of making plans.

Before the 2012 season started the Blue Jays made two long-term decisions affecting their bullpen. First Alex Anthopoulos traded for White Sox closer Sergio Santos, who came to town with a team-friendly contract in place. Then, three months later, Anthopoulos executed a variation of the Santos extension by inking set-up man Casey Janssen to a two-year deal with a club option.

A year and a half has passed and one thing is clear: nobody predicted these deals would turn out the way they did. Since the moves Santos and Janssen have taken divergent paths, with Janssen becoming the Jays closer and Santos moving into the background. It's not the outcome that seemed likely at the time; does that mean there's anything to be learned from it?

How have other teams that have added as much WARP in one offseason as the Blue Jays fared?

Usually when a team replaces its manager, 60 percent of its rotation, its left fielder, and its starting middle infield, it’s just trying to keep its head above water following an awful season. The Toronto Blue Jays have made all of those moves, but they made them to thrust themselves into the middle of the AL East race.

The Jays sent off a prospect package to Miami that would have left other systems barren, but Toronto's remains loaded with high-upside arms.

Transaction Analysis: Melky Flees To Canada

Sam Miller

What sort of discount would a team get on Melky Cabrera? Not a massive one.

Deals like this week's blockbuster are rare for any team. What are the day-in, day-out moves that Alex Anthopoulus has tended to make, and is likely to continue to make, to finish building a contender?

In last week’s Lineup Card, we identified 13 areas of need facing selected teams this winter. One of those teams—the only team with two entries in the article—was the Toronto Blue Jays. One Toronto entry was about how the starting rotation would need help.  (Evidently, Alex Anthopoulos agreed.) The other entry, by Colin Wyers was a bit more broad. What the Blue Jays needed, according to Colin, was “something other than a reliever.”

Look at Toronto’s transaction logs leading up to that Lineup Card, and you’ll see what Colin meant:
