I'm grateful I don't have to commute in the snow and cold. What are you grateful for?

What an eventful week, huh?

So let's not rehash but look at what the cards have to say.

New Post because the previous post has a lot of comments


 I'm creating a new post to continue the discussions of this past week. 

Someone asked so I'll explain, for some people , they use older phones that get clogged up and run slow when the comment section goes over the thousand comments, so for those who experience that problem, a new post helps out ( and keeps MK happy and a happy MK is better than a cranky MK).

So as the weekend begins, let us reflect on the Springer story and the Brantley non story and the various baseball networks, websites, blogs, newspapers who all of a sudden took notice and said " those Blue Jays might be good this year".

This is where I usually post a bunch of tweets and links but let's just say I'll see you in the comment section.

PS. Good to see some commenters that we haven't seen in a while.

Go Jays.

Hump Day Happenings


You would think, with all the stuff that has happened in the last 24 hours, that someone would step up and write about it all. But no, you're stuck with me, who scanned stuff for 30 minutes after a 10 hour shift and grocery trip who has to go to bed for another 10 hour shift.

Talk amongst yourselves.

A Half-Assed WTFJITH


We need a fresh thread. I've just done a 50 hour week and I'm exhausted. So here's a video going from Spadina to Yorkdale, shot the year I was daily travelling Spadina to Yorkdale on my way to catch a Go Bus from Brampton. Plus, I love the song.

Tunes n' Tarot - Monday edition

 Since this didn't get to happen Saturday night, we're starting the week with it! (btw, my work schedule is crazy this week too so I know I will crash as soon as I finish Friday night.)

Ten random thoughts: - A look back at 2020 and a look ahead to 2021


2020 was quite the year for sports. First, a global pandemic effectively shut down sports around the world for several months (baseball returned at the end of July). Second, racism and the black lives movement became front and center yet again with the police shootings of several victims of color. This time, athletes took a stand and boycotted games. In the MLB, most teams opted to participate in the boycott, but a few games did go on. The MLB and its team further showed it's support with #BLM decals on the pitching mounds and the sleeves of jerseys. On the field, the Blue Jays had a solid season with a 32-28 record, good for 3rd in the AL East and good enough to make the playoffs with expanded playoffs. Had this been a typical year with three division winners and 2 WC teams, the Blue Jays would have missed the playoffs. They were ousted in 2 games that weren't close by the eventual WS runner-ups the Tampa Bay Rays, who have been a thorn in the Blue Jays side in recent years. The Blue Jays essentially played 60 road games when the Canadian government refused to allow them to play in Toronto (they played their "home" games at their AAA affiliate in Buffalo. I'll also touch on Charlie Montoyo, who is entering the final year of his contract (although there is a club option for a 4th year), the closer role with Ken Giles not going to pitch in 2021 after late season TJ surgery and more. Here are ten random thoughts from the MLB.
