Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Full Count:
NATIONAL BESTSELLER
"Blair is lucid, informed and intelligent.... We can appreciate...Blair's judicious commentary on a team that always seems to be on the wrong side of the baseball gods." Philip Marchand, National Post
"Full Count is learned and thorough, with a keen eye on engaging readers instead of drowning them in the deluge of the author's knowledge.... The book manages that rare narrative pull that eludes so much contemporary sports writing." Quill & Quire
"This history of the Jays is by one of the country's most accomplished baseball writers, so it's not just a love letter, but instead explores both the glory days and the ruthless business decisions that kept the team hovering near the bottom of the standings. Until this year. Maybe." NOW (Toronto)

About the Author

Like Joe Carter, JEFF BLAIR has "touched 'em all" in more than 30 years of sportswriting and broadcasting. The Globe and Mail's sports columnist and host of The Jeff Blair Show on Sportsnet 590/The Fan in Toronto has covered Olympics, World Series, Stanley Cups and earthquakes while working in Winnipeg, Calgary, Montreal and Toronto. But his first love is baseball, which he covered from 1989 to 1997 as a beat reporter with the Gazette and has covered since then as a columnist with the Globe and Mail. Blair grew up in Morden, Manitoba, and attended the University of Manitoba. He lives in Hamilton with wife, Shelley, and daughter, Emma Rose.

I was hoping for a "what happened to the Jays" book. The author has done a good job of relating events since the World Series years. Would have liked a few pictures in there, a little more about the pre-WS days, and a bit more about some players that I've asked myself, "what happened to so-so". Overall, a nice effort.

I enjoyed this book very much. Jeff Blair's writing is easy to digest, and his analysis of key events in Blue Jays history is well-developed. Unfortunately, the title of the book is misleading. Blair devotes much of the book to the past decade of Blue Jays baseball. Anyone looking for colorful anecdotes or insightful analysis of the Jays' origins as a franchise to their rise to prominence in the '80s and early '90s will be disappointed.

Book is more about the business side of the Toronto Blue Jays but still good.
