But What Do I Know? . . . Justin Smoak, George Kottaras, Cito Gaston

My weekly observations and notes about some Canadian baseball stories: The Toronto Blue Jays signed first baseman Justin Smoak to a two-year contract extension on Saturday. The question many Blue Jays fans are asking is why? Though the payout is relatively modest by today’s standards ($4.125 million per season in 2017 and 2018 and a... Continue Reading →

But What Do I Know? . . . Jose Bautista, Goose Gossage, Jesse Litsch

Advertisements

My weekly observations and notes about some Canadian baseball stories: • Rule No. 1 of Canadian baseball blogging is don’t criticize Jose Bautista unless you’re prepared for an onslaught of vitriol from his online supporters. I’ve learned this the hard way over the years. So on Thursday, when Goose Gossage called Bautista “a disgrace to... Continue Reading →

My weekly observations about stories around the baseball world from a Canadian perspective (Please follow me on Twitter: @kevinglewsports): - Struggling ex-Toronto Blue Jays ace Ricky Romero - who was dropped from the club's 40-man roster on Saturday - could draw inspiration from Adam Lind, who, just over 12 months ago, was similarly removed from...

But What Do I Know? … Edwin Encarnacion, Jason Bay, Russell Martin

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  It’s amusing to me how much Jays fans dislike Edwin Encarnacion. In last night’s game, he made a throwing error in the third inning and fans seemed to blame him for the six runs that followed. No. 1, Encarnacion’s throw was one that... Continue Reading →

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  Earlier this month, I mentioned that the good thing about Juan Rivera is that he hits like Geroge Bell. The bad thing is that he also fields likes George Bell. And now, with the Jays’ decision to move him to DH, I’m almost... Continue Reading →

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  I thought there was already a plaque outside of the lower-level duplex apartment that Jackie Robinson lived in while he played in Montreal in 1946. Regardless, it’s nice to see that a plaque has now been erected in front of his historic de... Continue Reading →

But What Do I Know? … Travis Snider, Cito Gaston, Tom Brady

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  It’s safe to say that Travis Snider won’t be one of the featured speakers at the “Thank You Cito” ceremony tomorrow night at the Rogers Centre. Gaston’s use of the Jays’ top prospect has been incomprehensible this season. When he hasn’t been on... Continue Reading →
