There She Goes! Episode 9: Masculinity and Baseball

Kevin Pillar has been suspended two games for his homophobic slurs in Wednesday’s game against Atlanta. What does this say about the culture of baseball? Should this type of behavior ever be accepted in society? In today’s episode, we take your calls and deliberate on the ethics of sexual identity within baseball. http://media.blubrry.com/thereshegoes/p/content.blubrry.com/thereshegoes/There_She_Goes_Episode_9.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android | RSS

There She Goes! Episode 8: Is it too little, too late?

There She Goes! Episode 8: Is it too little, too late?

Since the start of May, the Blue Jays have been great — they’ve won nine of their past 13 and seem to be in their stride. Still, after a 2-11 start, is Toronto’s latest efforts too little, too late? We discuss that in today’s podcast, as well as some of the potential replacements for injuries this season. http://media.blubrry.com/thereshegoes/p/content.blubrry.com/thereshegoes/There_She_Goes_Episode_8.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android | RSS

Can Toronto turn it around in time?

Can Toronto turn it around in time?

I know it, you know it, we all know it – the Toronto Blue Jays have been really bad so far. How bad? To put it in perspective, 28 teams have been better than Toronto through a sluggish 26 games of the season. The Blue Jays never rebounded from a worrisome 1-5 start, and now find themselves sitting at a 9-17 record with just about 4 weeks of baseball in the books. It’s a simple question, yet a complex answer: Can…

Morales Grand Slam Gives Blue Jays First Win of Season

Morales Grand Slam Gives Blue Jays First Win of Season

Winning. It’s a feeling that is unforgettable – and indescribable – but so easily lost in even the shortest of droughts.  That feeling is fresh after today. Charged by a Kendrys Morales grand slam in the third inning, the Blue Jays take their first win of the season over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in front of a small but (relatively) loud crowd of 12,678 fans (who raised a total of $121 in the 50/50 raffle). Marcus Stroman,…

Blue Jays Offense Comes Up Short in 3-1 Loss

Blue Jays Offense Comes Up Short in 3-1 Loss

Baseball is full of superstitions. Some are repeating – Tim Lincecum wore the same cap for the first five seasons of his major league career, in which he appeared on four all-star teams and won back-to-back Cy Young awards. Some are based on the beginning – Ken Griffey, Jr. once bought a Mercedes-Benz, but sold it when he realized he hadn’t collected a hit since he had purchased the car. It may not actually have anything to do with the…

A 6-14 Record – Does it Matter?

A 6-14 Record – Does it Matter?

6-14 isn’t a pretty record, to put it mildly. The Blue Jays were lining up to be a quality team in 2017. The offense, albeit missing Edwin Encarnacion, was looking strong, and the pitching, while missing a sixth starter, is clearly stronger than that of last season. Then came spring training. Toronto has posted a 6-14 record in their first 22 games, and if spring is any indication, this season won’t go well. But does it matter? There are multiple…

2016 vs. 2017 – What’s Different?

2016 vs. 2017 – What’s Different?

The 2017 Blue Jays are going to look a little different then the 2016 Blue Jays. No Encarnacion. No Saunders. No Cecil, but Jose is back and we’ve still got our MVP. Offense Despite them losing a 40 home run hitter in Edwin Encarnacion, they’ve acquired a good 30-32 home run hitter in Morales at first base and DH. They still have their 2015 MVP Donaldson, who can hit 35-40 home runs, and they just got back Bautista. Bautista had a…
