Bautista and Encarnacion are the successes on that score.
You are giving up a HELL of a lot from Lawrie to Francisco at third. They've gotten away with it so far, there was one game-winning double down the line while Francisco was there that I thought Lawrie may have at least knocked down. But other than that I can't think of too many plays Francisco hasn't made...though he sure doesn't inspire confidence with how he looks fielding a ball.
This clearly wasn't plan A (or plan Z for that matter) this off-season as Francisco wasn't available until the end of Spring Training.
The Jays are slugging almost .600 at home, and only .391 on the road. Odd that, especially since opposing hitters don't see their own power numbers jump nearly so much in the dome. Having watched a handful of BJ home games this year it really did appear that for many ABs their guys knew exactly what pitch was coming and exactly what to do with it.

Obviously they're in cahoots with the Marlins.
Teams really have stolen signs for the entire history of the game. And with modern tech, it's really simple to put a hi-def camera in one of those flashing scoreboards or in that "sculpture" in Miami, shunt the feed to a guy on the 3B side and have him flash what's coming signs to the batter without getting caught.
There's something funky about both of these home splits.
Isn't part of the Jay's' MO getting their guys to pull everything? Iirc Bautista pulled all but 1 HR in his breakout year. The Reds tried to get Edwin to hit to all fields. It worked well enough but he just couldn't hack it at third.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Saturday that the team plans to use Brett Lawrie at second base against right-handed pitchers in order to keep Juan Francisco's bat in the lineup.
