Keep your eye on the Berti!

Re. Marcus Stroman

I’m still in shock.

I don’t need to tell you how awful the news was. I don’t need to tell you about the ramifications. I don’t need to tell you how Stro’s injury affects everyone and everything.

So, there’s options: Norris, Sanchez, Estrada, Albers, Francis (eek), Santana (yikes).

I’d pick Norris and Sanchez for the final two spots. Good potential and looked good last season. I had Sanchez pegged for the bullpen; even got into a Twitter debate about that on Sunday. But things have changed and possibly, so has Sanchez’s role with the team.

Of course, there’s always the possibility of a trade. That would be helpful for Dioner Navarro. But I doubt a trade will take place.

So…take a deep breath. These are the cards that have been dealt to the Jays. Unfortunately, they will have to play without their most promising starter.

DNJT Returns April 2nd

March 3, 2015

Start spreading the news! Definitely Not JaysTalk will return for a fourth season on Thursday, April 2! I ‘m calling it the Alfredo Griffin/Manny Lee/Craig Grebeck/Kyle Drabek season.

The program will stay as is. You can expect the usual cast of characters and some new ones too. There will also be one subtle change:

Up till now, I’ve post-dated episodes for Thursdays at 12:01am. This season, I’m planning on releasing episodes on Thursdays at 7am. Figure it will be better from a traffic standpoint. So if you have enjoyed staying up late, waiting for a new episode after midnight, I’m sorry. But at least you can include a new episode as part of a healthy breakfast. And if you enjoy an unhealthy breakfast, you can still listen to the show.

Of course, there will be articles, Retro Blue Jays posts and poems between episodes. If you haven’t yet, make sure you also LIKE DNJT’s Facebook page. It will put a smile of my face ๐Ÿ™‚

Grapefruit League action gets underway today as the Blue Jays take on the Pittsburgh Pirates in Dunedin. That puts a smile on my face as well. Enjoy the game!
