Nice win in the Bronx this afternoon 6-1. Edwin homered and the rookie starting 2b Devin Travis had is first career home run. One of the rookies finished made his first appearance in the 8th (not Osuna, the other guy forgot his name) came into the game with 2 on, and got Didi Gregorius stealing 3rd to end the mini-threat. Hutchinson pitched pretty well. Bautista & Donaldson did nothing, but didn't have too because the bottom of the order (Pompey & Pillar) did a lot of damage to set the table for Reyes & Martin at the top of the order. Good win.

Yeah, any win is a good win, but to spoil a home opener in Yankeeland is a real treat. The joint has been a graveyard for the Jays, having gone something like 3-17 in their previous 20 games there.

Very encouraging to see Hutchison pitch well in a spot that was supposed to be Marcus Stroman's. And it was nice to see Devon Travis homer for his first MLB hit.

If the Jays split the next two, I'll be a happy camper.

Default 2015 Predictions

for the Jays:

1. They'll win at least 90 games and make the playoffs.

2. If they remain (mostly) healthy, Bautista, Encarnacion and Donaldson will combine for 100+ home runs.

3. Two, or maybe even three of Devon Travis, Dalton Pompey, Aaron Sanchez and Miguel Castro will be top-5 in rookie of the year voting.

4. They'll steal over 100 bases.

5. Mark Buehrle will hit 90 mph on the radar and the gun will be immediately replaced with one that is working.

Jays 3 @ Yankees 4

Jays bullpen blew a fine RA Dickey start and coughed up three 8th-inning runs to donate a win to the Yankees on a cold, blustery day. Aaron Loup failed to retire the three batters he faced and Brett Cecil, the anointed closer (so far) was just as bad.

The rubber match is tonight with rookie lefthander Daniel Norris facing CC Sabathia.

After going I think 3-17 the previous 20 games at Yankee Stadium, the Jays win 2 of 3 and really should be kicking themselves that their not going down to Baltimore at a perfect 3-0 as the game on Wednesday they totally gave away, and should have easily won. Hopefully they can continue the hot start in Baltimore this upcoming weekend.

Jays 6 @ Yankees 3

The young Jay arms were on display yesterday with 21-year-old rookie Daniel Norris going 5 2/3s for the win, backed up by fine bullpen work from a pair of 20-year-olds in Osuna and Castro.

Encarnacion hit his 2nd dinger of the season and the Jays bunched 5 hits in the 4th to make a loser of CC Sabathia.

Sabathia looked pretty good after that shaky inning though, finishing with 8 Ks and Alex Rodriguez hit homer #655.

As 7express noted, the Jays could easily be heading to Baltimore today 3-0 but I'll take 2 out of 3 in NY anytime.

Now let's hope the bluebirds can spoil the Orioles opener this afternoon....

Jays 12 @ Orioles 5

Once again, the Jays pooped all over an Opening Day party, this time in Baltimore as Mark Buehrle notched win #200 of his fine career.

Jose Bautista, who was 0 for New York, broke out with three hits, two RBIs and scored four times. Jose Reyes also collected three hits while Pompey, Smoak, Donaldson and Travis had two each.

Adam Jones did much of Baltimore's damage, going 4-4 with a couple of ribbies. Bud Norris started for the Os but couldn't register an out in the 4th, leaving with the bags full.

Jays bats are smokin' early. I expected the middle of the order to wreak havoc - top 5 actually - but the 7/8/9 guys are contributing as well.

They'll try to keep it going tonight as another Jays rookie, Aaron Sanchez takes the hill for his 1st ML start.

Jays 1 @ Orioles 7

Ubaldo Jiminez took all the thunder out of the Jays bats, going 7 strong with 8Ks and allowing only one hit. His cause was aided by a grand salami courtesy of Jonathan Schoop off reliever Todd Redmond.

Rookie Aaron Sanchez started for the Jays and had a rough introduction, giving up 7 hits and 2 walks in 3.1.

Series wraps up today with Drew Hutchison on the hill for Toronto.

Jays 10 @ O's 7

Jose Bautista, Dalton Pompey and Kevin Pillar went deep as the Jays took 2 of 3 from the O's and head back to TO having opened the season on the road a tidy 4-2.

Adam Jones and Travis Snider went deep for the Orioles as both starters struggled. Hutchison couldn't complete 5 for the Jays and Tillman didn't get out of the 3rd.

The Jays maligned bullpen did the job this time around. Aaron Loup picked up the win and Castro the save with Osuna and Cecil also contributing scoreless innings.

I'm sure the team is pumped for tonight's home opener. And I'm sure Tampa would love to "pull a Blue Jays" and spoil the party.

Rays 2 @ Jays 1

RA Dickey had control problems, issuing five walks, including two with the bases loaded. Those were all the runs the Rays needed behind the stellar pitching of young Jake Odorizzi.

So, the Jays' Home Opener party was the one pooped on this time.

Game 2 of the 4-gamer goes tonight.
