*March 17th, Jays receive a slight scare as 3B Brett Lawrie has a groin injury, expected to miss a few spring games.

*March 17th, Gregor Chisholm had a discussion with Jays assistant GM Tony LaCava, they discussed various prospects, including our top arm Daniel Norris.

*March 15th, Joel Sherman of the New York post produced an article touting the rise of the Blue Jays.

*March 15th, AL Eastbound & Down had a “prospect showdown” as highly rated outfielders Anthony Gose and Jake Marisnick were compared head to head.

*March 12th, there was talk early in the week that the Blue Jays were interested in acquiring White Sox righty Gavin Floyd.  We had a look at what Floyd would bring to the Jays though talks have seemingly cooled since the initial report.

  • Not sure where Pat Tabler is getting his data but Pitch F/X has Stroman's curveball thrown 12.3% and is easily his least effective pitch. 1 day ago
  • Daniel Norris is the man and I hope he really develops into an ace but that life sized Jebus cross around his neck is a tad obnoxious. 1 day ago
  • Has a team wasted more money on scouting potential Cuban and Asian free agents than the #BlueJays? Motto: scout everyone, sign nobody. 2 days ago
  • Christian Vasquez is such a great receiver. He makes clear balls look like near strikes. Jays lack that top notch framing from catcher. 3 days ago
  • Green light on 3-0 for a heavily slumping Jose Bautista is not smart. 3 days ago
