John Farrell Calls Blue Jays' Fan Base a 'Sleeping Giant,' Excited About City's Optimism (Video)

The Blue Jays took two of three from the Red Sox, and they now sit at 4-2 to begin the season. But that could just be the start of something bigger. Manager John Farrell discussed the team's fans prior to Wednesday's game, and he called the fan base "a sleeping giant," saying that the city has just been waiting for something to latch onto when it comes to the game...

Streaker invades Red Sox-Blue Jays game

One fan at Tuesday's Red Sox-Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre took "YOLO" a step further. The young fan -- rocking a solid Speedo with sneakers and white socks combo -- sprinted onto the field with "YOLO" written across his chest. For all of you scoring at home, "YOLO" stands for "You Only Live Once," and is a term that's recently been...

Melee breaks out at Blue Jays home opener

Toronto Blue Jay fans still can’t control themselves when they drink! During Monday’s home opening 4-2 loss against the Boston Red Sox, the same upper deck fans that the Blue Jays organization tried to control by implementing new alcohol sales restrictions got into a drunken fist fight. Enjoy this entertaining video capturing a group of 20 somethings brawling in the cheap...

Blue Jays grounds crew enters field too early (Video)

The grounds crew at the Rogers Centre in Toronto got caught in a bit of a mixup during Wednesday's Blue Jays game as they came out onto the field too early and had to turn back around until the inning was over. Your browser does not support iframes. It happened in the bottom of the fifth inning against the Boston Red Sox, with two outs and a 1-1 count on Blue Jays outfielder...

Romero, Blue Jays keep Red Sox reeling

Ricky Romero allowed three hits in 8 1/3 innings and retired 17 straight batters at one point as the host Toronto Blue Jays took two of three from the Boston Red Sox with a 3-1 win. Romero (1-0), who struck out four, walked Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia to lead off the ninth inning after not allowing a baserunner since the third. After Adrian Gonzalez's deep flyout to...

Orioles-Blue Jays Preview

The Toronto Blue Jays' bats have been relatively quiet so far. Facing the Baltimore Orioles would normally give the Blue Jays a chance to turn things around, but that may not be the case this time. Toronto looks to maintain its home-field edge over the Orioles on Friday night when these AL East rivals meet for the first time in 2012. Despite getting off to a 4-2 start after...

Wright injury could open door for Valdespin

After storming out of the gate 4-0, the Mets built a lot of goodwill among its fanbase that maybe some good news was in store for the faithful this summer. However, after two straight losses on top of David Wright suffering from a fractured pinkie, a lot of people are ready to push the panic button. Wright fractured the right pinky finger when he dove back into first base on a pick...

Offense scuffles in 3-1 loss to Toronto

Day baseball wasn't any kinder to the Sox than night baseball, as Boston fell 3-1 to Toronto on a three-hit effort this afternoon. Jon Lester went eight innings, giving up three hits and two walks to go along with six strikeouts. A fine performance, but one that wasn't dominant enough for this anemic offense. They did manage to get two guys on in the 9th, but Gonzalez, Youkilis...

Video: Blue Jay fans give us our first fight of the year

I’d say that Labatt Blue or Molson Golden were involved, but the Rogers Centre has put strict alcohol restrictions into place. Here is what appears to be some friendly Canadians that get into a brawl at the Toronto Blue Jays game in the cheap seats. It was looking just like a bunch a pushing a shoving, then the punches come. I wouldn’t mind owning that Alomar T-shirt. H/T Deadspin

One Week in the Books

Catch your breath, look around, take in the scenery, what do you see? Looking at the big league club, I'm mostly pleased. The starting pitching has been almost uniformly excellent, the the bullpen has turned in a lot of good work, two blown saves notwithstanding, and the staff overall has a 2.57 ERA.The hitters are not yet where they need to be but I have a theory about that...

Buffalo Baseball: Bisons Win Big in 2012 Home Opener

My view at Coca-Cola Field during the Bison's 12-3 victory. Yesterday afternoon, the Buffalo Bisons had their first home game of the 2012 season. Instead of staying home watching the Mets like I normally would, I decided to venture out into the cold, windy, and rainy weather to attend the game. It was the first of many games I will be attending this season. The Bisons play at...
