Scott Richmond delivers

By
No hits allowed, no runs allowed, no problem.

Scott Richmond looked great in his spring training debut as the Blue Jays tromped over the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2 earlier today. Richmond pitched two scoreless innings, facing 7 batters and striking out one. The only blemish on his outing today was that he beaned a batter, but obviously Scott was practicing throwing at A-Rod. Travis Snider mashed again, with a homerun and another long fly ball that almost made it out of the park.

So, are you guys ready to start drinking the Scott Richmond Kool-Aid yet? It's looking pretty good right about now ...

Just a heads up that I’ll be out of commission for a few days because I’m getting my wisdom teeth yanked. As fun as it might be to write a blog post while hopped up on Tylenol 3’s, I think I’ll just stay away from my keyboard for a few days and recuperate. As it stands now, I’m tentatively planning on live blogging the Blue Jays spring training matchup against Team Canada on Tuesday, in lieu of the regularly scheduled Tuesday live chat. For those who can’t get away from the office that day, be sure to check here for updates during the game. Scott Richmond will play the part of the Jays' opponent when he suits up in red and white for Team Canada. Sign up for the reminder below, and I'll talk to you guys again next week!


Serving up Scott Richmond Kool-aid

By
What could be more refreshing on a warm afternoon in Clearwater Florida, than a tall glass of Scott Richmond Kool-Aid? It’s refreshing, invigorating, and best of all … it’s Canadian!

I’ll be watching the live boxscore as our CanCon hurler takes to the hill against the defending World Series Champions. I’ve already made my case for Scott Richmond to take a place in the starting rotation, now we’ll just have to see if he can live up to expectations. Obviously, just a few innings of work will not solidify anybody’s spot in the rotation. But a strong showing by Richmond today could give him an edge over Brett Cecil and Ricky Romero.

I know that pitcher entrances onto the field are pretty unexciting, but wouldn’t it be cool to see Scott Richmond crash through the bullpen and scream “Ohhhhhh yeah!!!”. So don’t be afraid to take a sip of the Scott Richmond Kool-Aid, it won’t kill ya! Or will it?

Cecil's Maiden Voyage in Dunedin

By
Well, it wasn't exactly the homecoming that the Blue Jays were hoping for.

Highly-touted Jays prospect Brett Cecil pitched his way through 2 innings and struck out 4 Yankees, while giving up one run in today's opener in Dunedin. Ricky Romero picked up for Cecil in the 3rd inning, and got lit up for 3 runs, including a 2-run homerun from Alex Rodriguez. Not quite the start we hoped for, but it is after all the first game of spring training. It's not like the Blue Jays just lost a tiebreaker playoff game.

Maybe the most promising news from today's game was the power displayed by Travis Snider. In two at-bats, Snider hit a deep fly ball to centre and a double to the left-centre gap. According to Jordan Bastian's tweets, Snider's batting practice was also impressive.

My boy Scott Richmond takes to the hill tomorrow, and will hopefully start to win over some of the nay-sayers about his place in the rotation. Start sipping on the Scott Richmond Kool-Aid folks, we'll be serving it up all season long!

Grapefruits are ripe & ready

By
Well, here we are! The very first game of spring training baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays. It’s Brett Cecil up against Brett Tomko of the Yankees. Here is your starting lineup for the Blue Jays:

Inglett 3B
Hill 2B
Rios RF
Millar 1B
Lind DH
Barajas C
Snider LF
Coats CF
McDonald SS

It seems weird "watching" the game through the live box score, but that's really the only option that Big Brother is allowing me. Either that, or follow Bastian's or Blair's twitter feed. They are updating it fairly regularly throughout the game.

Go Jays Go!

Live Chat tonight

By
Be sure to check back tonight at 9pm Eastern Standard Time for another Live Chat. After the initial news about Vernon Wells yesterday, we've learned that he will actually only be out for 2 weeks instead of 4. No doubt that we'll touch on the state of Vernon Wells hamstring tonight, as well as other spring training news like the much-anticipated debut of Brett Cecil on Wednesday. Maybe we can also squash these rumours/predictions about Roy Halladay being traded too.

It's all on another edition of the Blue Jay Hunter Live Chat!

Does Vernon need a protective bubble?

By
First, I lose the office Oscar Pool. Then, I notice that I’ve dropped 4 places in the standings for my Fantasy Hockey League. And now Vernon Wells is out for a month. It's safe to say that today has not been a good day.

According to Jeff Blair at the Globe and Mail, apparently V-Dub tweaked his hamstring while running an exercise earlier today. Sounds eerily similar to the same way he injured it last July - while sliding into 3rd base. It's estimated that he'll be out of for 4 weeks, and could possibly be ready for Opening Day in a limited capacity at Designated Hitter. It was just last week that we heard about how Vernon was really taking spring training seriously this year, and now this happens.

I don't want to jump the gun yet because spring training games haven't even officially started, but my blood pressure is already starting to rise. Vernon Wells is one of the big four in the lineup that really need to step it up this year, and expectations for him are higher than ever. Injuring his hamstring isn't exactly the most promising way to start the season.

After Vernon's injury-plagued seasons in 2008 and 2007, should we maybe look at buying him some sort of protective bubble that will prevent him from being injured? As I mentioned earlier, if you remember last July, Wells originally injured his hamstring after an innocent-looking routine slide into third. I didn't see this most recent injury myself, but I imagine that it was maybe a similar situation.

It's frustrating to hear about these injuries before the first pitch at Opening Day has even been thrown, but I am hopeful that Wells can get his "once-a-year" injury done and over with in spring training, and be ready to put up a solid 2009 season.

Spring Training Facial Hair Report

By
All this talk of off-season workouts and new training regiments has me wondering about the less publicized aspect of spring training - new facial hair. For some reason, select baseball players come out of their winter hibernation with a renewed faith in their game play, and a forgotten art of shaving. Only at The Blue Jay Hunter, will you find such in-depth investigative journalism! Here is your “Spring Training Facial Hair Report” for your 2009 Toronto Blue Jays!

Jeremy Accardo is working on his Unabomber beard. So long as he doesn’t announce he’s retiring from baseball to pursue a rap career, I’m not worried.











Kevin Millar is letting himself go after feeling the facial hair restrictions in Baltimore. Somehow, I see this turning into a handlebar moustache or a fumanchu.











Shaun Marcum has his usual 5 o’clock shadow going on. Shaun looks sad, and even his beard looks sad. I guess that’s what Tommy John surgery will do to ya.










Jose Bautista is sporting a quasi-beard.













Roy Halladay has his “beard of strength”, which is the source of his power. This is why we very rarely see Halladay clean-shaven.











And of course, the most infamous stache on the squad belongs to Cito Gaston.

Live Chat version 4.0

By
Just a quick reminder that there will be another installment of the Tuesday Blue Jay Hunter live chat this week. Stop by on Tuesday night starting at 9pm EST for another 60 minutes of Toronto Blue Jays chat with fellow fans and members of the blogosphere. I imagine that Cito Gaston's projected lineup with Scuatro batting leadoff is fuel enough to begin the raging fires of heated discussion.

Scoots & J-Mac in "Dunedin Vice"

By
When I saw this photo from Jordan Bastian's collection of spring training pics, I couldn't help but think that Marco Scutaro and John McDonald are the Blue Jays version of Crockett & Tubbs from Miami Vice.

Nobody messes with the middle infield when J-Mac and Scoots are on the case.

TGIF Notes

By
So much is happening so fast at Blue Jays spring training camp, that it's almost difficult to keep up with all the news! Here are some notes from what's transpired over the past few days;

Blue Jays Beat reporter
Jordan Bastian talked to Aaron Hill and it sounds like Aaron is ready to go for Opening Day at second base. His presence was missed greatly on the team last year, and folks are really looking forward to seeing Hill return to Blue Jays.

Although positional players were not required to show up until today, Scott Rolen waited until the last possible second to join the Blue Jays in Dunedin. One half of Millista (Jose Bautista) reported to camp yesterday, leaving Rolen as the only remaining Blue Jay to show up for spring training. Hey, so long as Rolen doesn’t show up “A-Rod Fashionably Late”, that’s fine by me.

It turns out that Roberto Alomar could in fact still join the Blue Jays spring training coaching staff … if he wants to. According to Globe Sports, Robbie has not yet confirmed or denied that he will or will not join the coaching staff. Cito says that the invite is still there though. I imagine that Alomar would probably not want to face the media onslaught down in Dunedin, but it would be cool to see him join former Jays like Pat Hentgen on the coaching staff.

If you haven’t already, check out the Blue Jays spring training photos on the Daylife website. There are some great candid photos on there, from B.J. Ryan (literally) grooming Shaun Marcum, to Jesse Listch trying on some X-Ray specs, or even just the sights of beautiful Dunedin Florida.

NBC Sports previews the Blue Jays, and predicts that Scott Richmond will be the Blue Jays 5th starter. Yes, finally someone else who has taken a sip of the Richmond Kool-Aid!

Remember, we’re just a mere 5 days away from the first Grapefruit League matchup between the Jays and Yankees. Damn I wish that spring training games were televised

Blue Jay Hunter Fantasy Baseball

By
In baseball, there are three types of fantasies. One involves your favourite team winning the World Series in dramatic fashion with a walk-off home run.

Another baseball fantasy probably involves the woman to the right, and her requesting a "backdoor slider".

Then of course, there's fantasy baseball. If you'd like to join the Blue Jay Hunter Fantasy Baseball league, just send me an email to ianrhunter@gmail.com. I'll gladly send an league invite to anyone who would like to join. There's no money on the line, just pride (which I don't have much of anyway, after drafting Frank Thomas last year).

It's a 6 x 6 head-to-head Yahoo league, with the following categories: R, H, RBI, HR, SB, AVG, W, K, ERA, WHIP, CG, and SV. Positions and stats will be open to debate.

The league is already half full, so hurry and register today!

Mencherson Part Two

By
Last year, J.P. Ricciardi played the part Dr. Victor Frankenstein and combined two below-average players into one below-average player. The horrifying result was known as “Mencherson”. This year’s version could very well be Millista or Bautar - a fusion of Jose Bautista and Kevin Millar.

Most people would probably prefer to have just one of these corner infielders on the team, but there is a possibility that both Bautista and Millar could clear spring training and make the 25-man roster.

Salary-wise, obviously Millar is the better choice because the Blue Jays would only have to pay him the league minimum $400,000. Bautista, on the other hand would make $2.4 million this season if he makes the team. But young Jose is a mere 27 years old, whereas “cowboy up” Kevin Millar is 37. With the departure of Gregg Zaun, Millar would probably fit in as the token “grizzled veteran” on the team.

Of course, part of being the “grizzled veteran” on the team means growing some sort of facial hair. “I can tell you I won't be shaving," Millar told the Toronto Star.

Which ever half of Bautar makes the squad, I just hope they at least put up better numbers this season than Mencherson.

Believe the Madness.

Live Chat tonight

By
Join us once again tonight at 9pm EST for another edition of the BJH Live Chat. Everyone is welcome to join and participate, it should be some great baseball discussion. See you tonight!

Update: Thanks to everybody who participated in this week's edition of the BJH live chat. During tonight's chat, we decided that the unofficial slogan for the 2009 Toronto Blue Jays Season is "Believe the Madness".

Also, if it just so happens that Kevin Millar and Jose Bautista both make the squad out of spring training, we have the 2009 version of "Mencherson"; it's either "Millista" or "Bautar". Take your pick! Makeshift jerseys will created soon. Thank you to Carson, Andy Mc, jackson, Turbo Serbo, woodpeck from The Hills are Alive, Dave at Go Jays Go, and the almighty Tao for joining in.

Live Chat version 3.0

By
Happy Family "Hangover" Day to everyone! It's amazing how much spring training news can happen in just a few days.

I saw an interview yesterday on Sportsnet where Barry Davis talked to A.J. Burnett. Davis was pretty frank with Burnett, asking why it was that he left Toronto. A.J.'s answer? "I guess that's why my agent put an opt-out clause in my contract". Translation - he did it for the money. In the rest of the interview, A.J. didn't seem like he had any remorse about leaving the Blue Jays, saying that most people in the same situation would probably have done the same. He also hopes to have another healthy season, trying to post back-to-back years without going on the DL. I guess it doesn't really matter to Burnett, he's making $16.5 million this year regardless. Other things that Burnett touches on is how he feels he "grew up" in Toronto, and that he hopes fans will be 50/50 on his return to Toronto this season as a Yankee. Let's just put it this way, 100 percent of Jays fans will tipping their hat to him - and not in the good hat tip way.

With spring training officially underway today, that means there are ample things to talk about during tomorrow's live chat. Why not swing by tomorrow around 9pm? With pitchers and catchers reporting for business, and positional players arriving on Friday, it will be a great time to preview the 2009 season. Join in tomorrow starting at 9pm EST for another Live Chat!

Open for Business

By
The day has finally arrived! Pitchers and catchers report to spring training today, and from the photos we've seen so far from Dunedin, things are looking promising. Surprisingly, there was a picture taken of the Doc with a smile from ear to ear. I almost didn't even recognize him because I'm so used to his usual stone-cold game face. I imagine he was so giddy because Halladay has his sights set on winning that Cy Young award this year. Cliff Lee can eat it.

I am also very excited that I finally received my tickets for Opening Day. After last year's fiasco in the 500's, I decided to veer away from the nosebleeds to avoid any possible drunken brawls. I managed to score a couple of tickets for section 211. I've never sat in that section before, but I think it just might be the section that is closest to that bar on the 200 Level. If that's the case, I might as well just preorder 10 Rye and Cokes.

Tweet, Tweet

By
Following in the footsteps of Drunk Jays Fans and Ghostrunner on First, the Blue Jay Hunter has now joined the Twitter universe. Initially, I debated back and forth about whether or not to sign up for Twitter. At first it looked like a glorified version of updating your Facebook status, but now I see that it's actually quite useful. Besides, those constant cries for attention by friends updating their status on Facebook every 5 minutes are annoying anyway.

Just in case there weren't enough ways to waste company time, woodpeck at The Hills Are Alive suggested that maybe I put together a Blue Jay Hunter Yahoo Fantasy Baseball League. I think it's a great idea, so if you're interested in playing this year just send me an email to ianrhunter@gmail.com. I'm hoping for at least 8 teams, but the more the merrier.

Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees

By
Let’s face it, there has been a lot of negative baseball news so far this week, so it was refreshing to find some refreshing and patriotic news today. The 2009 Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame announced their 2009 inductees, which includes former Blue Jay Ernie Whitt, Larry Walker, Roy “Doc” Miller and Bernie Soulliere.

Although Ernie Whitt is technically an American citizen, he’s still probably about as Canadian as poutine with a side of bag of ketchup chips. I’m not sure if Ernie is still pissed at Blue Jays management or not, but I imagine he will be in good spirits at the induction ceremony. He deserves a lot of credit, and has contributed a lot to Canadian baseball through the Blue Jays, and also by coaching team Canada at the World Baseball Classic.

The induction ceremony will be held on June 20th at 11:00am in St. Mary’s. Surprisingly, I still haven’t been to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, but will probably try to take a visit there sometime this summer to check it out. Though, I’m finding it difficult to find more than two good reasons to take a trip to St. Mary’s other than to see the hall of fame, and stock up on Crystal Meth.

Road trip, anyone?

Roberto Alomar shocker

By
This one is a bombshell; Roberto Alomar is being sued by his ex-girlfriend for $15 million dollars for allegedly giving her AIDS. Apparently he tested positive back in 2006, but this is the first that anyone has heard of this. That includes Roberto’s father Sandy, who says this is the first he has heard as well.

But wait, it gets even weirder. After sifting through the court documents, I noticed that Alomar’s ex claims that he told her that was raped by two men back when he was a 17 years old and that very well have been how he contracted the disease.

At this point, it's really "he said" vs. "she said". We all saw Roberto at Opening Day 2008, and he looked pretty healthy right? I find it really difficult to believe that this is true, because it’s a fairly substantial claim to make against one of the best second basemen of all time. Also, none of his family members are aware of his condition, and I imagine that something as huge as having HIV is pretty difficult to keep secret for an extended period of time.

I figure that this situation can go either one of two ways; either this woman wants to get a piece of Alomar’s money, or he really does have AIDS. If the latter is the case, I hope he’s receiving the best medical care possible. After all, if Magic Johnson is still kicking around, there must be some damn good drugs out there.

Live Chat tonight

With the recent developments in the baseball world, there will be no shortage of things to talk about in tonight's Live Chat. We'll be covering steroids in baseball, Alex Roidriguez, and of course the Blue Jays newest signing Matt "F*cking" Bush. Be sure to check back later tonight at 9pm EST for another edition of Live Chat!

Schilling shelling out more criticism

By
It seems like everyone has an opinion on the Alex Rodriguex steroid scandal, even the most outspoken benchwarmer in baseball, Curt Schilling. Here are a few choice reader reactions taken from the comment section of his latest blog post:

“You seem to have opinions on everyone else in baseball, How about taking the 8 million you made last year to sit at home and do nothing, and giving it back to the Red Sox, Mr. Innocent, why didn’t you cooperate with the Mitchell Report? You really are a big hypocrite.”

“Curt, Why do you feel it is necessary to come out and comment on everything related to a sport you are no longer a part of? Perhaps the reason you can no longer perform at a level high enough to play, is because you can no longer use. Do you really think anyone believes a word you are saying?”

“I’m just curious Mr. Shilling can you look us all in the face and say you would have been able to pitch in the playoffs in 2004 had you not recieved that surgery and cortosone steroid shot? If your answer is no, how is that any different that what these guys have done?”

I’m sure that most of these negative comments are from Yankee fans, but they do make valid points. Curt Schilling is very quick to judge other players in the media, but did he cooperate with the Mitchell Report himself? It sounds to me like Curt is just crying out for attention once again, hoping that some of the spotlight will shine on him in the midst of this buzz about A-Rod.

I'm sure this is just one of the many things we'll cover in tomorrow night's Live Chat. Everyone is welcome to join in, starting at 9pm Eastern Standard Time. There is an open invitation for Jamie Campbell to participate, so who knows what the hell might happen. If Richard Griffin gets wind of this, it could be a Blue Jays live chat shitstorm!

Live Chat version 2.0

By
Thanks again to everyone who logged on and participated in this week’s Live Chat. I’ve decided to try another one next week. Same time, same place; right here on Tuesday February 10th at 9pm.

I can’t 100 percent confirm who will be there, but there just might be some appearances from well-known Blue Jays Bloggers as well. As always, suggested topics or questions can be sent to me at ianrhunter@gmail.com and I’ll try to cover them during the Live Chat. Hope to see you here on Tuesday night!

Burnett's arm scheduled to fall off in 2009

By
"Christian Bale’s Blood Pressure, Michael Phelps, and the odds of A.J. Burnett’s arm falling off this season. "

"What is ... high?"

I came across Razzball’s list of 20 Risky Pitchers for 2009, and although it’s a fantasy baseball article there is some great analysis on which pitcher are highly likely to find themselves on the disabled list at some point in 2009.

I’m not saying that Burnett is injury prone just because 2008 was a contract year, but after a career high 221.3 innings pitched and 231 K’s, he’s almost bound to be injured by mid season (just my prediction).

As if the Blue Jays starting rotation wasn’t already in shambles, Razzball predicts that our #2 Jesse Litsch is also a big risk in 2009. Litsch threw almost 1000 more pitches this past season, so I can see why they would think that he would be more prone to injury than the average pitcher.

Also on the list of risky pitching options are Brett Myers and Ryan Dempster. After transitioning from the bullpen to the starting rotation, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Dempster go down to injury. Now I see why the Cubs didn’t want him to play in the World Baseball Classic; if Dempster is going down to injury in 2009, better in a Cubs jersey rather than a Team Canada jersey.

Brett Myers has “DL” written all over him after throwing 2000 more pitches in 2008 than in 2007. Moving from the bullpen to the rotation didn’t fare too well for Myers in the first half of last season, but he came around in the second half.

I’ll try to keep all of these things in mind when drafting my fantasy baseball team this year, but if it comes to the 15th round and I still need a starter, I just might pick up good old Alan James Burnett. Don’t say I didn’t warn myself.

Birds of a feather flock together

By
Last year it was the Cardinals, and this season the Blue Jays nest is picking up the remnants of many fallen Baltimore Orioles.

First off, MLBTR reports that Kevin Millar is close to signing a minor league deal with Jays. We touched on the possibility of signing Kevin Millar on Tuesday’s Live Chat. The consensus is that Millar would be a cheaper replacement than Jose Bautista, but Bautista can play more positions in the infield. Millar’s god-awful .234 average sticks out like a sore thumb, but he did hit 20 HR and 70 RBI’s though. Maybe there’s a possibility that he turns into the Jays DH?

Secondly, former Oriole Brian Burres was picked up off of waivers. Add Burres to the pile of reclaim projects that will be fighting for that coveted fifth starting rotation spot, and maybe a place in the bullpen.

Apparently Adam Loewen is doing well down in Dunedin with fellow canucks Justin Morneau and Russell Martin. The Dodgers catchers said "I know what he can do. I've seen him. We played together on the national junior teams and stuff, and he's a natural pure hitter." Don’t expect Loewen to make it up to the big show any time soon, he’ll probably be down in the minors for the next couple years. But this is a talented young player we should all keep our eyes on.

It looks like John Parrish will be staying in the AL East after all, but he won’t be going far. After the Detroit Tigers kicked the tires on Parrish, the Baltimore Orioles signed him to a minor league deal. Parrish is a great pitcher who can eat up innings, so I’m not sure why the Blue Jays just didn’t resign him. Maybe they just weren’t too crazy about adding a 31 year old arm to the bullpen.

Finally, I’m still waiting for the Orioles to complete this massive swap of personnel by picking up BJ Birdy and “Ice Cold” Wayne McMahon.

Live Blog Tonight!

By
I've already checked, and there's nothing good on TV tonight unless you're a fan of 90210. And if you are, what the hell are you doing reading a Blue Jays blog? So it's a perfect night to check out The Blue Jay Hunter for a very special live blog!

Starting tonight at 9pm, it's your chance to interact and have your say about the Toronto Blue Jays. Just check back at 9:00 tonight and join me for the very first Blue Jay Hunter live chat/live blog.

Update: If you missed it, just click on the replay button to check it out. Thanks to Dave from Go Jays Go, Lloyd the Barber from Ghostrunner on First for dropping in via streetcar, as well CheapSeats and Jonathan for chatting. I'll probably look at doing it again next week, so thanks for checking it out!

Turning Japanese

By
If anyone has the contact info for Blue Jays scout Rob Ducey, they might want to consider getting a hold of him. If possible, can somebody ask him to ship us an advanced copy of Resident Evil 5 from Japan? Apparently Ducey and the Blue Jays will be increasing their scouting overseas, and they've started by inviting Ken Takahashi to spring training camp.

If he makes the team, Takahashi could make up to $1.5 million as a starter, but if anything he would probably just be a middle relief guy. That's a lot to pay for a 40 year old reliever who has never pitched over in North America. I'd say it's a pretty low-risk gamble, but I don't think that the Blue Jays have much to gain by adding him to the pitching staff. The bullpen is already stacked as is.

If anything, it's an excuse to watch this classic video by The Vapors. Damn, that's a catchy number!

Superbowl Hangover

By
For a while there, my Superbowl prophecy almost came true.

I noticed something very interested happened during the game - the more I drank, the better the Cardinals started to play. So I didn’t start drinking heavily until the 4th quarter, but that’s when the Cards staged their comeback. Naturally, I assumed it was because of me. But like most drunks, I started to believe my own propaganda and it all came crashing down at the end.

Speaking of hangovers, the Jays scouting department might have been a little sauced on sake when they signed Ken Takahashi to a minor league deal. Over the last 2 years, he’s posted a 13-9 record with a 3.60 ERA with the Hiroshima Carp. Yes, carp. On the surface, that might not seem so bad, but here's the catch - Takahashi is turning 40 this year. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think the Jays need any Jamie Moyer-type pitchers on the team.

That will probably be one of the many things we can discuss on tomorrow’s Live Blog. It kicks off at 9pm EST, and I welcome you all to join in. If there are any questions or topics you’d like to discuss, just send me an email and let me know: ianrhunter@gmail.com. Hope to see you here tomorrow night!
