Check out the jerseys hanging up for the Toronto Marlins Blue Jays. Reyes, Johnson, Bonafacio, Buehrle. Just a part of the new players Toronto got to play north of the border this year. The Blue Jays have long seemed a team ready to take the next step, but they never have. They tried a few different methods. Former GM JP Ricciardi, tried to do it with big signings such...
AL BEast Notebook – March 20
- Blue Jays were well-represented on the WBC champion Dominican team this month, with Jose Reyes hitting leadoff and Edwin Encarnacion batting cleanup for the team that went a perfect 8-0 in the tournament. They each hit doubles in the first inning to give the DR 2-0 lead in the final game, which would be all they needed. Reyes and Encarnacion were...
After missing most of the second half of 2012 with a wrist injury that required surgery, Jose Bautista is back and once again the core bat of more dangerous Toronto lineup. I still find it hard to believe that Bautista really has just two-and-a-half seasons of fantasy dominance under his belt, yet no one is [...]
During Monday’s tilt between the Dominican Republic and the Netherlands in a World Baseball Classic match-up at AT&T Park, Dominican left fielder Moises Sierra made an incredible catch of a foul ball off the bat of Andruw Jones in the top of the first inning, diving into the stands to snag a fly ball…right out of the waiting mitt of a fan eagerly awaiting for his prized souvenir...
Last season, the Red Sox fielded the worst starting rotation in the American League East. Injuries and inconsistency doomed the Sox hurlers in last year’s disappointing campaign, but the staff is healthy and ready to go as spring training begins to wind down.
Boston’s starting pitching should be much improved in 2013, but it won’t be the best in the division — at least according...
Tweet In the World Baseball Classic semifinal matchup between the Dominican Republic and the Netherlands on Monday night, the Netherlands looked like they might blow open the top of the first inning. After already bringing in a run, the Netherlands had a runner on third with two outs. That’s when Dominican Republic left fielder Moises [...]
The Toronto Blue Jays acted boldly in the offseason to snap out of the relentless mediocrity that has characterized the franchise for almost 20...
Retired MLB manager Lou Piniella signed a deal to work as a commentator for the YES Network this year. The regular season has yet to begin, but on Wednesday we got a taste of why someone who is a little rough around the edges like Piniella may be better off in the dugout than the broadcaster’s booth.
During the third inning of a spring training game between the Boston Red Sox and...

This is why tweeting at seven in the morning is never a good idea. Poor Jay. But hey, they say you don't become a true tweeter until you make a gaffe like this. And to his credit, he responded and apologized on twitter to all those people who mercilessly attacked him for what was nothing...
Mark Buehrle gave up four runs and eight hits over four innings in the Toronto Blue Jays' 10-6 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday.
Brandon Barnes hit his fourth exhibition homer, a two-run shot during a four-run third off Buehrle. Houston opened the inning with five consecutive hits.
Buehrle is part of a revamped Blue Jays rotation that includes other offseason acquisitions...
