Meet Ricky Romero, professional gum chewer. Over the past two seasons, Romero has emerged into one of the best left-handed starters in the game. As we can see from the photo above, he has also spent a lot of time working on his Dubble Bubble skills.
I’m sure there have been bigger bubbles blown, but that is by far the best in-tact bubble I have ever seen. The accompanying tweet Romero sent out with the picture says that the bubble was made from four pieces of Dubble Bubble gum. The only thing I can think of is that he was chewing them for like an hour so they got stiff, otherwise I don’t know how this bubble wouldn’t cave. Whatever the approach, that’s a bubble to be proud of.

Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie was ejected after going ballistic on an umpire following a third strike call during his at-bat.
Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie had a roid rage moment during Tuesday’s game and can expect a suspension because of it. Lawrie was upset about being called out on strikes by the homeplate umpire on a pitch he thought was up in the zone. Lawrie began heading to first for what he thought was ball four, but he snapped after hearing the umpire say it was the third strike. Dude...
The quickest way to get yourself excused from the baseball field is to make contact with an umpire. Blue Jays rookie third baseman Brett Lawrie must have had a hot date and didn’t want to stick around for the final out of Tuesday’s game. Before this video starts, Lawrie had a 3-1 count. Lawrie thought the next pitch was outside, so he started toward first base only to be...
Toronto Blue Jays young third baseman, Brett Lawrie, became irate after he was rung up on a called strike three in the ninth inning against division rivals Tampa Bay Rays. The pitch, which he thought was a bit high and outside, immediately caused him to throw his helmet to the ground in disgust, which hit the ump in the leg after it first bounced. Both Lawrie and manager John Farrell...

Through Monday night's game.
Brett Lawrie called it an ''unlucky bounce.'' Major League Baseball is likely to call it a suspension.
A furious Lawrie slammed his batting helmet to the ground after he took strike three and it struck plate umpire Bill Miller in the hip as the ninth inning turned nasty Tuesday night in Toronto's 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay.
''That was not my intention at...
Jose Bautista didn't get much of an opportunity to see if he liked hitting in the Metrodome.
The slugger, though, has made the most of his games at Target Field as the Toronto Blue Jays wrap up a four-game series Sunday against the Minnesota Twins.
Bautista, who hit 97 homers over the past two seasons, has eight thus far in 2012 despite a .197 batting average. But coming to...
If his recent starts are any indication, Brandon Morrow could be on his way to making the jump to top-flight starting pitcher this season.
The Tampa Bay Rays didn't appear very impressed with the right-hander last month.
Morrow looks to win a career-high fifth consecutive start and exact a measure of revenge against the Rays in the opener of a two-game series Monday night at...
