Mark Buehrle was in a hurry on Thursday night. The fastest working pitcher in baseball had tickets to see country singer Tim McGraw at the Molson Amphitheatre and he wasn’t about to wait around for his post-game interview with reporters.
So he crashed his manager’s instead.
“Grandparents are here to watch the kids so let’s go” Buehrle said drumming his fingers on the table as he took the mic from John Gibbons.
The veteran lefty pitched his best game as a Blue Jay on Thursday throwing a complete-game shutout and holding the lowly Houston Astros to just a pair of hits for a 4-0 victory in two hours and 18 minutes.
It took a visit from the worst team in baseball but the Jays finally snapped their longest losing streak of the season at seven thanks to Buehrle’s first complete game in more than a year and first shutout since his perfect game on July 23 2009.
“I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of people saying ‘Obviously this is the worst team in baseball.’ Record wise they’re not very

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...
Mark Buehrle pitched a two-hitter and the Toronto Blue Jays ended a season-worst seven-game losing streak, beating the Houston Astros 4-0 Thursday night.

Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow has been shut down for six weeks with a nerve problem in his forearm, effectively ending his season.
Morrow began the season as Toronto's No. 2 starter and went 2-3 with a 5.63 ERA in 10 starts. He left a May 28 outing against Atlanta after just two innings and has not pitched since.
Multiple MRI exams showed only inflammation, but Morrow...
The Rangers are looking at big name players to fill their offense. They have shown interest in Alex Rios, Hunter Pence, Kendrys Morales, Marlon Byrd, Chris Denorfia and Giancarlo Stanton. The Ranges are very serious about upgrading their offense. That list above just got bigger, as more names have been reported.

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...
Brandon Morrow has an entrapped radial nerve in his right forearm and is likely out for the rest of the season a source told sportsnet.ca Wednesday night.
The Toronto Blue Jays right-hander visited Dr. James Andrews earlier in the day where the renowned specialist confirmed a diagnosis made during two previous exams by other doctors in May and June.
Despite that the team has continuously...

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.
Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs in one inning, including his sixth career grand slam, Jose Reyes, Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie also went deep and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Houston Astros 12-6 on Friday night.
Encarnacion became the first Blue Jays player in nearly 20 years to homer twice in the same inning when he accomplished the feat in the seventh against Paul Clemens...
“Homers win” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons used to say back in spring training when the prospect of the upcoming season was all sunshine and optimism.
His team proved him right on this night at least.
Edwin Encarnacion became the first Blue Jay since Joe Carter to hit two home runs in the same inning as the Jays slugged their way out of trouble against the Houston Astros on...

Edwin Encarncaion had a game he will never forget on Friday night and made Toronto Blue Jays history when the All-Star became only the second player in their almost 37 year existence to hit two home runs in the same inning.
Joe Carter was the first Jay to turn the trick in their regular season finale against the Baltimore Orioles back on October 3, 1993.
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.
