A bit OT but does anyone know how many games they wear the Blue jerseys this year?

I prefer the all white home look personally, looks much more timeless and classic. They've already worn the Blue 3 home games in a row now. We should have a system like other teams, only wear the blue alternate on sundays or something.

What qualifies them? Games or attempts?

If he's Top-20 out of the Top-40 regular catchers, I say that's not that bad at all.
qualifying for defensive stats requires a certain # of IP.

If we combine 2011 and 2012 and set the minimum IP for those two seasons at 1500 (the highest that fangraphs can make it while still having Arencibia included), JP ranked 14th out of 20 catchers with 50 CS (vs 120 steals) and 12th out of 20 on percentage at 26% caught.

Drop the IP requirement to 1000 and he moves to 23rd out of 34.

Again, basically he's middle of the pack. In a 3rd tier in terms of CS%. Average-to-below-average. He's got a reasonably strong arm, it's just not very accurate.

if he keeps up his average, he should get through 5.. but he's definitely throwing too many pitches

Fair enough.

IP is a terrible requirement though, it should be attempts to rank that since a terrible catcher is going to get ran on more in fewer innings.

Good work by Happ to get out of that!

At the very least he could DH, we need his bat!

He also said his wrist was fine to come back last year. And we all know how that worked out.

We shouldn't have to rely on Bautista all the time anyhow. There is still a ton of talent on the team to be winning some games

Great at-bat Colby. Swinging and missing on everything as usual.

I read something today where Bautista said he'd rather miss a couple of games than a week or 10-days. He said he'd play if we were in a playoff battle right now, but there's no point early in the season.

There's no way the Jays are going to get calls after Bautista's comments earlier in the week.
