Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow is likely done for the season. Morrow has a entrapped radial nerve in his forearm according to Canada’s Sportsnet.
The Blue Jays and Morrow are hopeful that extended rest will allow the injury to heal but there is no timetable on a return and he could be out for the rest of the season.
When asked about Morrow Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos did not speak optimistically.
“It’s tough because it’s been so long. It’s hard to be at this point. I’m just being honest. He just hasn’t been able to get it going. He feels better. It’s certainly improved from where he was but he just doesn’t feel 100 per cent. I ask our trainers: ‘It seems like we’ve given him so much rest. Should he not be 100 per cent at this point?’ It’s tough to know how everyone’s body recovers and so on. We’ve taken MRIs multiple times and all we’ve seen is inflammation.

Boy, is it ever tough being a Toronto Blue Jays fan this year.
I’d like to believe that we still have a shot at making something happen and getting our foot in the wildcard door, but unfortunately I am officially declaring the 2013 Blue Jays season over. I guess technically we could still be in it, if we win 50+ games for the remainder, but let’s be realistic. If our beloved...
All Blue Jays fans must strain to remember the hoopla that surrounded this team in the off-season and when it came time for spring training, everyone was basking in the glory that in 8 months time, they’ll be celebrating a World Series win – the first in 20 years for the organization.
Unfortunately, that’s not to be.
We all know the approach that the Toronto Blue Jays and Manager...
The Toronto Blue Jays did not start the second half of the season on the right foot. The team have lost five in a row, including a 14-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“It wasn’t a good game,” said Jay’s manager. John Gibbons in the post game press conference, “We got whipped all the way around,” he said.

Brett Lawrie is a heartbreaker.
The other night I came across Stephen King’s wisdom on opening lines. Written above, in italic, is my opening line. It’s simple, to the point, and for most of Lawrie’s fantasy baseball career, emphatically true. I applied this same line when I wrote about him earlier this season. King would say this opener...

Down to his last strike in the top of the ninth, Andre Ethier worked some serious black voo doo magic on Wednesday night in Toronto. Colby Rasmus watches as the ball takes a hop, hits the top of his glove, and continues spinning behind him. The misplay allowed Yasiel Puig to score from first and tie the game at 3.
