Found May 15, 2013 on My Sports Rumors:
The San Francisco Giants have crossed the border for a series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Whenever two teams who rarely play each other face off it makes for an interesting batting practice. Well Pablo Sandoval and Munenori Kawasaki got together and it was safe to say that Kawasaki was left speechless. Pablo decided to show Munenori his tattoo sleeve on his left arm and well here just take a look at Kawasaki’s face. What do you think Kawasaki was thinking?

Munenori Kawasaki Can’t Get Over Pablo Sandoval’s Ink

  The San Francisco Giants are in town (or country, I guess) to play the refurbished, but still terrible Toronto Blue Jays. During the pre-game armistice ritual of batting practice, the Giants affably chunky 3rd baseman, Pablo “Kung Fu Panda” Sandoval showed off his many tattoos to the Blue Jay shortstop Munenori “Energy Boy” Kawasaki. “Energy Boy” expressed his amazement...

SF Giants Rumors: Melky Cabrera, It Wasn’t Muscle Melk

The San Francisco Giants finished a 7-3 homestand, and then were off to see Melky Cabrera and the Jays in Toronto. Manager Bruce Bochy presented Cabrera with his World Series ring in a private setting. Bochy said Melky wanted it that way, and Melky says Bochy wanted it that way. I think it’s safe to say that Melky didn’t want the presentation to be public with the way he left...

Giants to face Blue Jays, Cabrera

FRED THORNHILL/Reuters It has been 273 days since the Giants have seen Melky Cabrera. He was caught, and that was that. The Giants were surging and had just traded for the Phillies’ slugger Hunter Pence. Cabrera was leading the league in triples (10), was second in batting average (.346) and was on pace for around 230 hits last year before he was suspended for PED use. Since then...

Toronto Blue Jays Lay A World Series Beating On San Francisco Giants

Don’t look now but the Toronto Blue Jays have won 4 games in a row, including a dominate 2 game mini-series sweep against the World Champion San Francisco Giants. The Blue Jays outscored the Giants 21 to 9 banging out 29 hits in the two games played at the Rogers Centre . Former Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera received his World Series ring from Giants Manager Bruce Bochy, a...

Blue Jays' Sergio Santos to have elbow surgery

Blue Jays right-hander Sergio Santos will have surgery this week to remove bone spurs from his pitching elbow and is expected to be sidelined about six weeks. Santos was placed on the 15-day disabled list April 14 with soreness in his triceps. He had been close to starting a minor league rehabilitation assignment but experienced a drop in velocity while pitching in an extended spring...

Jeremy Affeldt returned $500K to SF Giants after noticing an error in his contract

It's seems pretty tough to find a role model in sports these days but, if you look in the dictionary under honesty,  Jeremy Affeldt may just fit the description. In 2010, the relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants says he was overpaid by $500,000 thanks to a contract error that wrongly awarded him more than the $10 million previously agreed upon. The mistake was signed...

Melky Cabrera playing through pain, MRI shows 'irritation'

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera underwent an MRI on Wednesday, apparently after dealing with soreness in his hamstring since the start of the season. Sportsnet's Shi Davidi tweeted the results of the MRI on Tuesday evening, saying that Cabrera had problems in both his quad and hamstring: MRIs on Melky Cabrera show irritation in right quad and left hamstring...

R.A. Dickey’s Lost Velocity

Knuckleballers aren’t like other pitchers, or so the saying goes. Their pitches flutter like butterflies, they pitch at less than max effort, they don’t depend on velocity, and they can pitch into their fifties. All of these things seem true, and yet the more we know about knuckleballers the more they might actually be more like all the other pitchers out there. So when 38-year...

Romero Struggles Once Again But Bisons Hold On

It doesn’t seem to matter where Ricky Romero is pitching recently, the southpaw just can’t get the job done. Romero struggled once again on Thursday afternoon in his second start with Buffalo in 2013. The former All-Star went only 3.2 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and six walks. Romero has had no control of the strike zone since joining the Herd and saw...

Hamate Break Halts Jorge Bonifacio’s Breakout Season

If you knew Emilio Bonifacio‘s younger brother was an outfield prospect in the Kansas City Royals’ farm system, you might assume the two are roughly similar. But Emilio — a speedy, switch-hitting, utility man for the Toronto Blue Jays — and Jorge have little in common, at least when it comes to their games. Jorge, the younger of the pair, is a burly right fielder with a...

Pitching Injuries Becoming All Too Familiar For The Blue Jays

For the first six weeks of this season, the Toronto Blue Jays have been digging themselves into a hole. Some say this hole is close to becoming too deep to climb out of. Others have said it is still early and the team will come around in time for the playoff chase in September. But it is not just the wins or losses that have bitten the Blue Jays. In the last three to four weeks the...

Brandon Belt Finally Belting It

In the fourth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Giants first baseman Brandon Belt stepped to the plate with his team down 6-1. Squaring off against reigning National League Cy Young Award winner and knuckleball extraordinaire R.A. Dickey, Belt looked to spark his team to a rally from its early deficit. He certainly did his part. On a 2-2 pitch, Belt smacked...

Giants 8, Rockies 6

Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking two-run single in the sixth inning, Matt Cain settled down after a shaky start and the San Francisco Giants won their 10th straight over Colorado, rallying from a six-run deficit to beat the Rockies 8-6 on Thursday night. Brandon Crawford added a three-run double to help San Francisco and Marco Scutaro extended his hitting streak to 15 games. The NL...

MLB Quarter Mark: Are The Toronto Blue Jays Turning It Around?

The Toronto Blue Jays are turning their season around When Alex Anthopolous made 3 defining moves this off-season, acquiring Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck from the Miami Marlins, signing the 2012 MLB all-star game MVP Melky Cabrera, and acquiring R.A. Dickey from the New York Mets, many people, including myself were ready to hand...

The National League West Race: Notes and Comments

The 2013 National League West simply will not stand still and cooperate. And it's annoying to the national sports media who are scrambling to do their best to write this season's pre-packaged NL West story-- i.e., which team will finish ahead of the San Francisco Giants. Most pre-season predictions about the NL West are disappearing faster than executive careers at the...
