Toronto Blue Jays: Brandon Morrow out for the year

The Toronto Blue Jays won three out of four this past weekend against the worse team in baseball, the Houston Astros. Despite the fact the Jays were playing a bad team, it was still refreshing to see Toronto winning the four game series, especially after starting the second half of the season on a losing note. Colby Rasmus gets smothered by his teammates after hitting the game winning...

Toronto minor leaguer Van Kirk suspended 50 games

Toronto Blue Jays Double-A outfielder Brian Van Kirk has been suspended for 50 games without pay after a second violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program for a drug of abuse. Van Kirk's penalty marks the 36th this year in baseball's minor league program and eighth in as many days. The penalty starts immediately. In his second consecutive season...

Blue Jays’ Diamond in the Rough: Edwin Encarnacion

Nathan Denette- Canadian Press In spite of an impending failure of a season, Toronto Blue Jays have a hitter in Edwin Encarnacion that continues to get better as the season progresses–possibly to the point of being an AL MVP candidate. Nine games under .500, the Jays are tangled at the bottom of the American League East. Unless they can dominate in the month of August, it looks...

Jays' Bautista ejected vs. Astros

Blue Jays designated hitter Jose Bautista was ejected in the seventh inning of Sunday's game against Houston for arguing with plate umpire Sam Holbrook. Bautista turned and said several words to Holbrook after striking out swinging with men on second and third and the score tied 1-1, voicing his displeasure with a call earlier in the at-bat. Bautista went 0 for 4 before being...

Gibbons: Cabrera 'served his time'

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons believes outfielder Melky Cabrera served his suspension and won't be penalized by Major League Baseball for his ties to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs. Gibbons said Monday in Oakland he isn't making contingency plans in the case that Cabrera receives another suspension. ''We don't think...

Edwin Encarnacion Is Not Your Typical Slugger

Hank Aaron. Barry Bonds. Albert Pujols. Edwin Encarnacion. If one of those names doesn’t seem to fit, perhaps you haven’t been paying close enough attention in 2013. (And you probably didn’t read Dave Cameron’s trade value column.) The fact that Encarnacion is third in the majors in home runs and fourth in runs batted in doesn’t put him in elite company in historic terms...

Blue Jays believe Melky Cabrera already served his time, won't be suspended

Although his name is tied to the Biogenesis scandal, the Toronto Blue Jays do not feel like Melky Cabrera will be suspended.  The outfielder served a 50-game suspension while with the San Francisco Giants last year after testing positive for a banned substance.  The Blue Jays think any punishment now would be inappropriate since Cabrera already served a drug suspension that could...

A Swing And A Belt: Tom Cheek Tribute Song By Rational

With the recent induction of the late Tom Cheek into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Canadian hip hop artist Rational raps his tribute to Tom. Definitely worth a listen. The post A Swing And A Belt: Tom Cheek Tribute Song By Rational appeared first on Baseball Hot Corner.

Blue Jays 2, Astros 1

Learning to forget past failures has made Colby Rasmus a better hitter this season. It sure worked out for him Sunday. After going hitless in his first four at-bats, Rasmus drove in Emilio Bonifacio with a game-winning single in the ninth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Houston Astros 2-1. Rasmus' game-winning hit came two innings after he popped out to end the seventh...

John Farrell keeping watch

The conversations are more frequent now four or five each day rather than the usual one or two and it’s enough that John Farrell need not look at his watch to know exactly how many hours remain before 4 p.m. Wednesday. When you’re the Red Sox manager the trade deadline will have that effect. As much as any team the Sox value their manager’s opinion. Farrell shares a close relationship...

Blue Jays rumors: Emilio Bonifacio most likely to be traded

The Toronto Blue Jays were significant buyers this winter, acquiring names such as Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and R.A. Dickey in hopes of competing for a World Series crown. However, Toronto has struggled this season, leading many to believe they could become sellers just a little over six months later. If the Blue Jays do wind up making a deal, Ken Rosenthal of FOX...
