That's a nice race shaping up in the American League East. The Toronto Blue Jays are involved, sort of. They are playing the role of "opponent." They have done pretty well at that so far. They won two of three at Yankee Stadium against faltering New York last week. They split four games with the Tampa Bay Rays at home last weekend. On Monday, they lost 4-0 to the rampaging Baltimore Orioles in the opener of a three-game series. The Blue Jays get a chance to play for something else this weekend when they have three games at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox. It is the battle for fourth place in the division.

Just days after masterfully gunning down a runner at [...]
Things just are not improving for Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero. The left-hander, who at one time was 8-1 this season, lost his 12th consecutive decision Sunday when the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Blue Jays 9-4. Romero had pitched well in his previous start, Aug. 28 at Yankee Stadium, going seven innings while taking a 2-1 loss. However, he did not retire a batter in...
The Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles experienced some slippery conditions because of mechanical troubles with the retractable roof at Rogers Centre.
The team apologized to fans Tuesday night after the roof was unable to close at the normal speed, leaving many people opening umbrellas to protect themselves from the elements.
Groundskeepers had to use drying agents on the...
