“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
“Full Count is the book Jays fans have been waiting for. Jeff Blair nails the twin goals of any successful author, telling stories loaded with flair and detail and gaining tremendous access to the principals who could shed the most light on the past four decades of baseball in Toronto. Not a Jays diehard? No problem. With tales of boardroom dealings, team-building strategies, and vivid storytelling, Blair, like Joe Carter twenty years before him, touches ’em all.”
—Jonah Keri, author of the New York Times bestseller The Extra 2%: How Wall Street Strategies Took a Major League Baseball Team from Worst to First
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 1989-97 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, Man., and attended the University of Manitoba. He lives in Hamilton with wife, Shelley, and daughter, Emma Rose.
