8 days till opening day.

The previous post was getting large so here's a new one.

As noted above Apple TV's Friday night baseball is no longer free  to view. You're going to need a subscription.

Of note, the Jays are scheduled on Apple TV for Friday April 21 vs the Yankees and on Friday May 19 at home vs the O's. You can read more here.

I think this Link is pretty close to having the opening day line up.

MLBTR link has a breakdown of all the teams in the ALE and the changes to each team.

Good luck to everyone in the Jith fantasy league.

Happy Birthday JITH


         Yes, it's Jith's 7th birthday. On March 6th, 2016 this blog was created, by MK, as a haven for the followers of Andrew Stoeten. When he moved to the Blue Jays Nation website, one of the causalities was the comment section. It was unwieldly and non conducive to conversations. As such, MK knew there was a void to be filled , otherwise everyone would scatter to other sites. After conversations with Stoeten, she made the leap and gave birth to this place. Many changes have taken place since those first days and the blog has evolved to what it is today.

I went back to look at that first post just to see the cast of characters.

Morgan Burton, Warren, Joe Mcd, The Wolf, Lunchbox, Player to be named later, Blue Jay Matt, Paul M, Dr. Dikhead, GSMC, Tim, Karl Sagan, Guitar Davey, Karl Marx Buehrle, Bill Risley Lives, Mark, Man in the Suit, little Looper, Ban Sneakers, el cabeza, Tom W, The Bean Weasel, Turf Tested Kyle, Blue Ballz, Jose wants Noise, Double M, Catcher in the Rye, Joanna, Monkeyman, Oakville Jays, Noopi, Fowl of Canada, Karen, Steve O, AJ Breakfast Army,Bo'nd Two, Dabbles. just to name a few, many many, more followed in the following days, as word got spread.

Some News.

Steve O has graciously stepped up and will be the new commissioner for the Roto League.

Bautista will honoured on the Level of Excellence, August 12th

If you have any questions about the past, present or future, AMA.

Have a great birthday, members of Jith. And always remember " Go Jays, you assholes"

Hump Day Gratitude


I'm grateful for a few things:

  • I'm grateful baseball is back
  • I'm grateful that thanks to the generosity of a friend, I'm able to go to the dentist this morning for the first time in a couple of decades
  • I'm grateful that another friend gave me an aloe plant so I can use its gel to sooth my breast after each radiation treatment
  • I'm grateful that I've gotten through the first week of radiation
What are you grateful for?

For MK:

this dog means business

like Nickelback said, it's been a while.

i'll keep this short: we needed more space and i signed up for it.

mk underwent a procedure of some kind or other today related to her health issue. with the exception of me, of course, i don't doubt everyone is wishing her well. fingers crossed.

at any rate, this is your new thread. same as the old thread.

Remember the Chris Coghlan flip? Still one of the craziest things I've ever seen on a field.

Hump Day Gratitude


I'm grateful that I'm still eligible for the study and I have a chance of only having to do 1 week of radiation + booster rather than 3 weeks + booster. And even if I end up in the 3-week control group, at least my treatment is contributing to science.

What are you grateful for?

Thrilling Thursday


I had planned to put up a new post yesterday, then got distracted. (The 3 medical appointments I had may have had something to do with that.) But 1500 comments? Yeah, needs to happen. 

So, Brandon Belt. Isn't that thrilling?
