Melvin Upton Jr. – the name doesn’t quite elicit the same level of interest as a Chris Sale, Jonathan Lucroy or Rich Hill. Melvin Upton Jr. isn’t the sexiest name on the market, but similar to getting socks for Christmas, Upton serves a purpose for the…

If you asked most Blue Jays fans if they could have a beer with any former Blue Jay, most would probably choose none other than John Albert Martinez; more affectionately referred to as Buck Martinez. Over the course of his playing and broadcasting career,…

What team wouldn’t love to have this problem? One of their most promising young pitchers has surpassed expectations and performed so well that the club has to contemplate throttling down his innings and put him in the bullpen. What would a front office…
Another solid start by Aaron Sanchez has many questioning whether the Blue Jays should keep Sanchez in the rotation, or move him to the bullpen.

Of all the players to sign to a two-year contract extension on the Blue Jays roster, Justin Smoak would be one of the most unlikeliest. Although he’s a decent defender at first base and a switch-hitting first baseman with pop, Justin Smoak isn’t exactly…
The Blue Jays locked up Justin Smoak to a two-year contract extension, but the deal seems unnecessary for a replacement-level player.

The 2015 trade deadline for the Toronto Blue Jays is something we may never witness again. Somehow, pieces magically fell into place that week. Deals which were in the works for weeks finally materialized, teams which dropped out of contention suddenly…
With the trade deadline on the horizon, should the Blue Jays do as they did in 2015 and go all-in at the trade deadline?

The Blue Jays are just one game short of the 2016 All-Star Break, and save for a win today against the Detroit Tigers, the Jays really couldn’t end the first half in a much better fashion. The Blue Jays are tied for the seventh best record in all of…

If it wasn’t already blatantly apparent that the Blue Jays needed bullpen help, it is now. It was another poor performance from select members of the Blue Jays’ bullpen and yet another missed opportunity as the Blue Jays dropped the second game of their…

There’s something different about Marcus Stroman these days. Not just his demeanor on the mound, but his overall performance. After struggling for months, something finally clicked with Stroman and he’s beginning to look like his old self again. During a…
Marcus Stroman made some slight changes to his delivery on the mound, and the results are quite promising.

There was once a time when Anthony Gose was viewed as the centre fielder of the future for the Blue Jays. He was the second coming of Devon White. Gose would succeed Colby Rasmus and provide the Blue Jays with all the speed and defense they needed in…
The Blue Jays dodged a bullet by trading Anthony Gose when they did, sidestepping the theatrics he's displayed with the Detroit Tigers.

It’s simple science; what goes up must come down. But if you’re Kevin Pillar in the outfield, your goal is to never let a baseball come down … only for it to cradle in the pocket of your baseball glove. Kevin Pillar is at it again with his latest “Kevin…

In context of the 2016 season, the Jay Bruce for Michael Saunders and minor leaguers deal may go down as one of the greatest trades that was never made. Michael Saunders has been a revelation for the Blue Jays this season, and Jay Bruce continues to put…
Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball says the Blue Jays may be the most likely landing spot for the Reds' Jay Bruce.

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.
