The Phils end their spring training season in Florida with a come from behind victory over the Blue Jays, winning 9-2.
The Blue Jays took the lead in the third as, with a runner on second, and with two men out, Edwin Encarnacion hits an RBI single, knocking in Jose Bautista, who had earlier doubled, giving the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead, before moving up to second base on the late throw to the plate. The Blue Jays then made it a 2-0 lead one batter later as Adam Lind hits an RBI single, scoring Encarnacion. The Phils would get a run back in the sixth as, with a runner on second, and with nobody out, Ben Revere, who had started the inning off with a single, then stole second base, would score on second baseman Eugenio Velez’s fielding error of Jimmy Rollins’ grounder, making it a 2-1 Blue Jays’ lead, while Rollins would be safe at first. The Phils then took the lead one batter later as Chase Utley hits a two-run home run, his fifth home run of the spring, scoring Rollins, giving the Phils ...

The Toronto Blue Jays have won the offseason award for busiest team. Obviously that means very little as they have to back up their moves with some solid play. Critics complain that the Jays have not been to the postseason since they last won the World Series in 1993. They say the 2012 Marlins sucked and the Blue Jays just went out and traded for them. They say RA Dickey won 20 games...
Back on that October night in 1993 when Joe Carter launched his home run off Mitch Williams that won the World Series, Toronto was on top of the baseball world.
The Blue Jays were back-to-back champions, selling out every game at a rollicking SkyDome, with its first-of-a-kind moving roof. The first team to draw 4 million fans in a season, Toronto hosted the 1991 All-Star game, beat...
When the Toronto Blue Jays selected Ricky Romero with the 6th pick of the 2005 draft in 2006, they envisioned a bright future for the southpaw. After parts of 5 seasons in the minor leagues, he made his debut in April 2009, and did nothing but impress Toronto executives and fans. From ’09 to ’11, his win total increased each year from 13 to 15, while his ERA decreased from 4...
Mark Buehrle appeared in mid-season form in his final spring outing. The 34-year-old left hander cruised though five innings allowing just two hits to the Philadelphia Phillies.
Buehrle notched five strikeouts in the outing and did not allow a walk.
The Blue Jays acquired Buehrle in a lopsided trade with the Marlins which also netted them Jose Reyes and others.
Buehrle has been a...

The Cubs announced the move Wednesday.
Moscoso is 11-12 with a 4.16 ERA in 57 major league appearances, including 24 starts, with Texas, Oakland and Colorado.

Moscoso was with...
Not all that long ago, I wrote about Gio Gonzalez striking out a ton of opposing pitchers. Though Gonzalez set a modern-day record, the achievement itself was not entirely surprising: Gonzalez is a durable pitcher who gets a lot of strikeouts, and pitchers strike out a lot as batters. This is because pitchers are by and large terrible batters, dragging down the offensive numbers...
Roy Halladay allowed two runs over 4 1-3 innings in his first big league spring training appearance in 11 days, prepping for the regular season in the Philadelphia Phillies' 7-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner had not pitched in a major league game since March 17, when he came out of a start against Baltimore after one inning due...
