TGIF Tidbits

Need to do some research on our opponents for this weekend? Check out The 35th Street Review to read up on our adversaries, the Chicago White Sox. Keep in mind that the Jays were 7-1 against the ChiSox last year, so history is in our favour. Keep in mind that there is a slight possibility that Steve Perry could make an impromptu appearance at U.S. Cellular Field and belt out “Don’t Stop Believing”. That’s reason enough to check out this weekend’s series.

Ghostrunner on First and Tao of Stieb are rightfully furious that TSN2 has the rights to broadcast the upcoming Blue Jays series vs. the Red Sox. Thankfully, I have TSN2 as part of my cable package. You’re all invited to my place for the series, I just hope you don’t mind sleeping on the floor.

What does violently vomiting up blueberry pancakes have to do with Ricky Romero? Listen to the latest podcast at Searching for ’93 to find out. Speaking of alcohol, get at least a 12-pack out for all the “cheersing” encouraged over at Sports and the City.


Mop Up Duty has a great interview piece with one of only two Blue Jays to hit for the cycle, Kelly Gruber. Who was the other guy? Jeff Frye, who was actually in attendance for one of the games earlier this week since he is Ian Kinsler’s agent.

LJ from the Te of Inglett has a Scott Richmond jersey, and she’s not afraid to use it.

Yahoo! Sports finally shows the Blue Jays some love in their weekly power rankings. The bluebirds are all the way up to #4, which is also the same place they sit in ESPN’s weekly power rankings.

Wondering what Shea “Sinking Ship” Hillenbrand is up to these days? Me either. For those who are, apparently he’s running a farm for rescued animals out in Arizona.

Ian Hunter

Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

    Actually, I think it’s kind of fitting for Shea Hillenbrand. First he killed his career, and now he’s saving animals. How sweet.
