Chien-Ming Wrong again: How did we let Wang go?

Rebuilding project finally comes together for Jays

Riding their longest winning streak in almost 15 years, the Toronto Blue Jays are getting ready to welcome four-time All-Star Jose Reyes back to the lineup. Not that anyone's rushing him, mind you.

On streaks, the bullpen, and Birdland

On Streaks The Toronto Blue Jays have won 10 games in a row and sit one game over .500. The Blue Jays’ run has been mightily impressive. They have been getting amazing production from their bullpen and the offense finally seems to be gelling together.
