Pitching Injuries Becoming All Too Familiar For The Blue Jays

For the first six weeks of this season, the Toronto Blue Jays have been digging themselves into a hole. Some say this hole is close to becoming too deep to climb out of. Others have said it is still early and the team will come around in time for the playoff chase in September. But it is not just the wins or losses that have bitten the Blue Jays. In the last three to four weeks the...

Penance By Banishment

I wonder what the Melkmen will be doing this week. You’re going to get inundated with Melky articles today and tomorrow, and maybe even Wednesday.  Few players ever left their team in such dubious circumstances, and few times has it ever turned out as well for the team and as…dubiously as it does for the player.
