Found May 03, 2013 on Sports-Glory:

With the most productive offseason in the last 20 years, it’s doubtful that the Toronto Blue Jays could have imagined that they’d be in their current predicament. Highlighted primarily by the acquisitions of starting pitchers, Mark Buerhle, R.A. Dickey and Josh Johnson, General Manager

Toronto Blue Jays: Will they turn it around?

What can I say about my beloved Toronto Blue Jays.  Not much.  Right now they are one of the worse teams in baseball a with a 10-17 record and are last in the American League East standings.  In their last ten games, they went 3-7.  Their last road trip was disastrous, losing a three game series to Baltimore and then they got swept by the New York Yankees four straight.  Their...

NY Mets look like winners following R. A. Dickey trade.

After last season break out numbers from R. A. Dickey, and his Cy Young award, the Mets were under a lot of pressure to sign him. For starters, the Mets needed a headlining name on the pitching staff, and Dickey's own personal testimony made for a feel good story. Then the Mets traded him in what became almost a nightmare for public relations for a club that needed all the positive...

Blue Jays' R.A. Dickey cleared for Saturday start

Toronto Blue Jays right-handed starting pitcher R.A. Dickey has been cleared to make his regularly scheduled start on Saturday against the Seattle Mariners. He underwent an MRI on his neck yesterday, which resulted in a diagnosis of mild inflammation in his neck, according to The Associated Press. Dickey exited his April 18 start due to tightness in his neck and back. He hasn...

Ricky Romero Is Back Way Too Soon

Ricky Romero is back with the Blue Jays after just thirty-five days. Welcome back to the big leagues, Ricky Romero. It’s a fantastic feeling to see your favourite Toronto Blue Jays player get promoted to re-join your favourite team. What could be better right? Well, a lot really as this is not really a promotion it’s a call up due to the injury of Josh Johnson. Is it me or is...

The Blue Jays May Not Be a Good Team, But They Can Dance

Brett Lawrie, Jose Bautista and Munenori Kawasaki showed off some of their dance moves this week as the Torointo Blue Jays looked to jump-start their poor 2013 campaign. The Jays spent a large amount of money in the off-season but it hasn’t translated into wins as the team is sitting at a measly 10-18 record and are bottom dwellers in the AL East. Team = Bad. Dance Moves = Good...

Dickey Deal Keeps Looking Better And Better For The Mets

As the title says, the R.A. Dickey deal just keeps looking better and better and that’s with the key piece to the deal sitting on the disabled list for nearly a month. A post by Josh Chapdelaine of Around Citi brought to my attention just how bad things are going for the reigning Cy Young this season. “The knuckleballer racked up his fifth loss of the year”, writes Chapdelaine...

Dickey Trashes His Teammates While Buck Keeps Homering

Former Mets legend R.A. Dickey is on my fantasy team in which I put down 40 bucks to try to once again make a run at a title after finishing fourth last year and second two years ago. (In the interest of trashing my Co-Owner Michael Charles Ganci, he missed the playoffs last year and I beat him in the playoffs two years ago) He is pitching to a 5.36 ERA so far with the Blue Jays...

Toronto Blue Jays Recall Pitcher Ricky Romero From Dunedin

The Toronto Blue Jays have recalled pitcher Ricky Romero from their Triple-A Dunedin minor league affiliate. He is expect to fill the rotation void left when Josh Johnson was placed on the disabled list. The post Toronto Blue Jays Recall Pitcher Ricky Romero From Dunedin appeared first on FFLockerRoom | NFL - MLB News | Fantasy Sports Advice | Sports Talk.

Brett Lawrie and Jose Bautista have a dance party. Lawrie needs help.

The Blue Jays have been a disappointment after the coup of a trade they pulled on the Marlins over the winter.  Jose Reyes is out with a bum knee, Josh Johnson has been more like Ladybird Johnson and Emilio Bonafacio has contributed as much as I have. But, that hasn’t stopped third baseman Brett Lawrie, outfielder Jose Bautista and infielder Munenori Kawasaki from getting groovy...

Blue Jays put RHP Johnson on DL, Romero to start

The Toronto Blue Jays have put pitcher Josh Johnson on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right triceps and say lefty Ricky Romero will make his season debut this weekend. The Blue Jays made the move Thursday and recalled right-hander Brad Lincoln from Triple-A Buffalo. Johnson was scratched from a start Friday, and his move to the DL wasetroactive to April...

Featured Post: Dickey Deal Keeps Looking Better And Better For The Mets

As the title says, the R.A. Dickey deal just keeps looking better and better for Sandy Alderson and the Mets – and that’s with the signature piece to the deal, Travis d’Arnaud, idling on the disabled list for nearly a month. A post by Josh Chapdelaine of Around Citi brought to my attention just how bad things are going for the reigning Cy Young this season. “The knuckleballer...

Game changing no call

In last night's 9-7 loss against the Toronto Blue Jays, replacement umpire Clint Fagan quite possibly gave two runs to the Blue Jays. With the bases juiced in the third inning, Jarrod Saltalamacchia attempted to pick off Jose Bautista with a snap throw to first base. Salty had a good chance to get him at first but his elbow caught Fagan's mask and the ball ended up in right...

Mariners rough up Dickey, beat Jays

Dustin Ackley hit his first career grand slam, Michael Saunders homered twice and the Seattle Mariners roughed up Cy Young knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, beating the struggling Toronto Blue Jays 8-1 on Saturday afternoon. Seattle's offensive outburst was welcomed by right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma, who'd received just one run of support in his previous three outings. He pitched...

Toronto Blue Jays: Aberration or Reality

As of May 1, the Toronto Blue Jays are 9.5 games out of first place. At a quick glance this may not be the worst thing you’ve ever seen, but considering the hype surrounding this team, it might as well be.  The addition of Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, R.A. Dickey and Melky Cabrera were supposed to be the final pieces to the ultra-competitive AL East puzzle.  Reyes...
