Found May 16, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Don’t mind Muneori Kawasaki.  He’s just preparing for a baseball game the way that any Major League player prepares.  Right?   1. The smoothest mechanical bull ride ever.  Solid form. via Reddit   2. He’s still working on his Vanna White.  It needs serious work. via Reddit   3. Like the annoying little twerp in the AT&T commercial: “I can stand on my head and waaaaaaaave my feet.” via Reddit   For those scoring at home, Kawasaki went 0 for 3 with a walk, a run scored and a throwing error.  Back to the drawing board.

Jays infielder amazed by Sandoval's tats

This moment of childlike wonder took place during batting practice prior to the Giants-Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre this past Wednesday night. Toronto shortstop Munenori Kawasaki has a look of sheer amazement on his face as he gawks at Pablo Sandoval’s massive arm and tattoo work, which seems strange since Kawasaki hails from Japan, aka The Land of the Rising Tentacle Porn....

Reyes rejoins Blue Jays in New York

Jose Reyes says he is progressing in his rehabilitation from a severely sprained left ankle, and the shortstop looks forward to joining his Toronto Blue Jays teammates on the field before the All-Star break. Wearing a Superman T-shirt, the bearded Reyes flashed a big grin Friday while reconnecting with his teammates in the visitors' clubhouse at Yankee Stadium. He was on the...

Melky Cabrera playing through pain, MRI shows 'irritation'

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera underwent an MRI on Wednesday, apparently after dealing with soreness in his hamstring since the start of the season. Sportsnet's Shi Davidi tweeted the results of the MRI on Tuesday evening, saying that Cabrera had problems in both his quad and hamstring: MRIs on Melky Cabrera show irritation in right quad and left hamstring...

Sandoval wows Kawasaki

The San Francisco Giants have crossed the border for a series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Whenever two teams who rarely play each other face off it makes for an interesting batting practice. Well Pablo Sandoval and Munenori Kawasaki got together and it was safe to say that Kawasaki was left speechless. Pablo decided to show Munenori his tattoo sleeve on his left arm and well...

Romero Struggles Once Again But Bisons Hold On

It doesn’t seem to matter where Ricky Romero is pitching recently, the southpaw just can’t get the job done. Romero struggled once again on Thursday afternoon in his second start with Buffalo in 2013. The former All-Star went only 3.2 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and six walks. Romero has had no control of the strike zone since joining the Herd and saw...

Hamate Break Halts Jorge Bonifacio’s Breakout Season

If you knew Emilio Bonifacio‘s younger brother was an outfield prospect in the Kansas City Royals’ farm system, you might assume the two are roughly similar. But Emilio — a speedy, switch-hitting, utility man for the Toronto Blue Jays — and Jorge have little in common, at least when it comes to their games. Jorge, the younger of the pair, is a burly right fielder with a...

The Toronto Blue Jays Are Coming

All the offseason-acquired talent may just be finally starting to come around. Currently in the midst of a four-game winning streak and a 7-3 record in their last ten games, the Toronto Blue Jays are starting to become the feared team everyone thought they would be at the start of April. Off to a slow start, the Blue Jays could not sustain decent pitching and hitting for more than...

Pitching Injuries Becoming All Too Familiar For The Blue Jays

For the first six weeks of this season, the Toronto Blue Jays have been digging themselves into a hole. Some say this hole is close to becoming too deep to climb out of. Others have said it is still early and the team will come around in time for the playoff chase in September. But it is not just the wins or losses that have bitten the Blue Jays. In the last three to four weeks the...

Brandon Belt Finally Belting It

In the fourth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Giants first baseman Brandon Belt stepped to the plate with his team down 6-1. Squaring off against reigning National League Cy Young Award winner and knuckleball extraordinaire R.A. Dickey, Belt looked to spark his team to a rally from its early deficit. He certainly did his part. On a 2-2 pitch, Belt smacked...

Blue Jays 11, Giants 3

J.P. Arencibia and Adam Lind each hit two-run home runs, Ramon Ortiz won for the first time since 2011 and the Toronto Blue Jays won their season-high fourth straight game Wednesday night, beating the San Francisco Giants 11-3. The last-place Blue Jays, who came in with the fewest runs of any AL East team, have 33 runs and 41 hits in their past three games. They beat Boston 12-4...

MLB Quarter Mark: Are The Toronto Blue Jays Turning It Around?

The Toronto Blue Jays are turning their season around When Alex Anthopolous made 3 defining moves this off-season, acquiring Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck from the Miami Marlins, signing the 2012 MLB all-star game MVP Melky Cabrera, and acquiring R.A. Dickey from the New York Mets, many people, including myself were ready to hand...

Munenori Kawasaki Can’t Get Over Pablo Sandoval’s Ink

  The San Francisco Giants are in town (or country, I guess) to play the refurbished, but still terrible Toronto Blue Jays. During the pre-game armistice ritual of batting practice, the Giants affably chunky 3rd baseman, Pablo “Kung Fu Panda” Sandoval showed off his many tattoos to the Blue Jay shortstop Munenori “Energy Boy” Kawasaki. “Energy Boy” expressed his amazement...

Blue Jays-Yankees Preview

The Toronto Blue Jays were expected to be a serious contender in the AL East, and now they're finally playing like one. The next 10 games could actually make them one. As they open a potentially vital stretch, the Blue Jays look to extend their longest winning streak of the season and end a seven-game skid to the New York Yankees in the Bronx on Friday night. A series of offseason...

Toronto Blue Jays Lay A World Series Beating On San Francisco Giants

Don’t look now but the Toronto Blue Jays have won 4 games in a row, including a dominate 2 game mini-series sweep against the World Champion San Francisco Giants. The Blue Jays outscored the Giants 21 to 9 banging out 29 hits in the two games played at the Rogers Centre . Former Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera received his World Series ring from Giants Manager Bruce Bochy, a...

Signs of Life?

Well, it's been a pretty sweet 10 day run, eh? Obviously the sample is pretty tiny but the feeling was always (with the saner folks at least) that there was no way that guys who were established successful guys would not ALL simply go over the cliff collectively at once. As I noted in the last entry, they HAD to be better than what they were playing, whether or not they were...
