It’s been a tale of two seasons for Drew Storen. He entered the 2016 campaign as one of the Blue Jays’ highly-regarded bullpen pieces. But it didn’t take long for Storen to tumble down the depth chart and remove himself from high leverage situations. Ever…
Drew Storen is pitching better than ever Could the reason for his turnout be related to him moving over on the rubber?

One of the coolest moments of the 2015 was the game where Edwin Encarnacion hit three home runs in one game, and Blue Jays fans proceeded to throw their hats onto the field. It was a spontaneous and completely organic moment; it seemed so simple, but that…
Michael Saunders hit a hat trick of home runs against the Orioles, and the Jays fans threw their caps on the field in appreciation.

For days, the mystery of “who changed R.A. Dickey’s walkup song” has gone unsolved. On Monday, Dickey’s usual Game of Thrones music was  suddenly swapped for Hurricane Chris’ “Halle Berry”. If you’ve ever peered into Dickey’s life, you’d think something…
R.A. Dickey changed his walkup song to "Halle Berry", but for a very interesting reason.

If I told you on Opening Day that the Toronto Blue Jays – MLB’s most prolific offense in 2015  – would have trouble scoring runs, would you believe me? Would you believe me if I told you the very same team that averaged over five runs per game last season…
The Toronto Blue Jays continue to slump at the plate and are in real trouble if they don't turn things around soon.

The Blue Jays’ 7-0 victory over the New York Yankees was a complete team effort. The Blue Jays mastered all facets of the game against the Yankees and in some ways, the Blue Jays hearkened back to the the team that won 93 games last year. Speaking purely…
The Blue Jays execute on all accounts (pitching, bullpen, offense) in their 7-0 win over the New York Yankees.

Yesterday, I posted about the sheer speed of Aroldis Chapman’s fastball, and how Devon Travis was miraculously able to get his bat on a 102 MPH heater. Today, we have the opposite end of the spectrum featuring Aaron Sanchez and Xander Bogaerts. Sanchez…

2016 was supposed to be Jose Bautista’s big payday. But after struggling through the first few months of the season and suffering from a few nagging injuries, Bautista may not get the desired dollar amount he wanted. Jose Bautista’s value may be on the…
Edwin Encarnacion is setting himself up for a big payday in 2016, if he keeps hitting at this pace and reaches free agency.

In a perfect world, the Toronto Blue Jays wouldn’t have to worry about moving one of their best starting pitchers into the bullpen. Ideally, that pitcher would be allow to finish out the season and accumulate as much experience and innings as possible.…
John Gibbons said Aaron Sanchez will eventually be moved to the bullpen, but that was probably the plan for Sanchez all along.

What a weekend for baseball in Toronto. If you were fortunate enough to score a ticket to any of the games this past weekend, you certainly got your money’s worth. After several nail-biting and heart-stopping moments, the Blue Jays emerged with three of…
3 Up 3 Down as the Orioles are no joke, Jason Grilli shines, and the Blue Jays' bats wake up.

After a breakout campaign in 2014 and an injury-shortened season in 2015, 2016 was supposed to be the year for Marcus Stroman. He was supposed to take the baton from David Price and become the new ace of the Toronto Blue Jays. One third of the way through…
Marcus Stroman has struggled as of late, but is it time to start worrying about him? Or is this merely a blip on the radar?

It will likely go down as one of the most overlooked trades in recent Blue Jays memory. On November 1st 2014, the Blue Jays traded long-time Blue Jay Adam Lind for a swing-reliever from the Milwaukee Brewers named Marco Estrada. At the time of the deal, I…
Marco Estrada has quietly become the Toronto Blue Jays' most important pitcher in their starting rotation.

Trying to hit a fastball in Major League Baseball is difficult enough as is. So one can only imagine how much harder it is to hit a rubber sphere hurling your way at 100+ miles per hour. Somehow, someway, hitters manage to make contact on pitches thrown…
Devon Travis hit a 102 MPH pitch from Aroldis Chapman, and somehow connected for an opposite field single.

Hi I'm Ian, and I'm a long-suffering Toronto Blue Jays fan.
Introduction
The Blue Jay Hunter is a blog about the Toronto Blue Jays, which takes a look at the team under the microscope. Mixed in with just a hint of humour, and a shred of dignity. I also have an affinity for baseball moustaches.
Ian Hunter's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
