With just over a month to go in the regular season Edwin Encarnacion is putting the finishing touches on a career year, one that earned him a three-year $27 million contract extension in July. Through 127 games entering today the first baseman/designated hitter was third in the AL in home runs (35), [...]
The Toronto Blue Jays have long believed in Edwin Encarnacion. Before that, the Cincinatti Reds we big, big fans of the third-baseman-now-turned-first-baseman. The rub was that Edwin Encarnacion had never performed at the level these teams thought he could. His previous career high in homeruns was 26 and more often than not was a guy who hit homeruns by the teens annually than...
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Moises Sierra has a fine throwing arm, but he is new to the majors, called up from Class AAA Las Vegas on July 31. So surprise, surprise, he needs some refining. Ever since he was promoted, there seems to have been an obsession with the raw skills of the 23-year-old outfielder. Sure, his throws have been erratic at times, but it's not as if there...
There is nothing more scary for a Major League Baseball outfielder than losing the ball in the sun or lights.
Over the weekend, Toronto's Moises Sierra had a rather funny moment happen to him in a game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Plays like these demonstrate why the Toronto Blue Jays are horrible and in last place. This fly ball could not have gotten any easier for outfielder Moises Sierra to catch, yet somehow he managed to turn a very routine play into the most ridiculous looking blunder of all time. Just days after masterfully gunning down a runner at [...]
Things just are not improving for Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero. The left-hander, who at one time was 8-1 this season, lost his 12th consecutive decision Sunday when the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Blue Jays 9-4. Romero had pitched well in his previous start, Aug. 28 at Yankee Stadium, going seven innings while taking a 2-1 loss. However, he did not retire a batter in...
TORONTO (AP) -- Moises Sierra homered and threw out pinch-runner Elliot Johnson at home plate for the final out, preserving Brandon Morrow's first win since June 6 and leading the Toronto Blue Jays to a 2-1 victory over the slumping Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.
Edwin Encarnacion hit his 35th home run as the Blue Jays handed the Rays their sixth loss in seven games.
TORONTO (AP) -- Matt Joyce homered and had three RBIs, Ryan Roberts also connected and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 on Saturday.
For the second straight day, the game ended with the potential tying run thrown out at home plate. This time, Colby Rasmus singled to center off Fernando Rodney, but catcher Jose Molina hauled in a high throw from B.J. Upton and blocked...
