Going into the mini-series against the Yankees, I thought that the Toronto Blue Jays would have rough go of it
Thankfully, I was wrong.
The Blue Jays sure made up for that heart-breaking 4-3 loss against Tampa Bay on Tuesday by trouncing the New York Yankees 8-1 on Wednesday night.
“This was a good offensive night for us,” said Blue Jay’s manager, John Farrell in a press conference after the game.
J.P. Arencibia, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista, and Kelly Johnson all hit home runs in the game.
As for Encarnacion, he has been swinging the hot bat lately. He has already hit 13 round trippers this season. This time last year, he had none.
With all the scoring going on, I didn’t realized how good Jay’s pitcher, Kyle Drabek played on Wednesday night.
Drabek pitched seven innings, giving up only three hits, one earned run, four walks and striking out five batters.
“It was a solid effort on Kyle’s (Drabek) part,” said Farrell.
Earlier yesterday, the Blue Jays announced that they had sen

The Blue Jays have sent struggling first baseman Adam Lind to the minors. They promoted catcher Yan Gomes, who is set to become the first Brazilian-born player to appear in a major league game.
The Jays demoted Lind to Triple-A Las Vegas. He is batting .186 with six doubles, three home runs and 11 RBIs in 34 games. He has just six hits in 13 games this month.

The Toronto Blue Jays made the shocking decision today to demote veteran first baseman Adam Lind to triple-A. In his place the organization added catcher/infielder Yan Gomes to the 40-man roster and promoted him from Las Vegas.
Make no mistake about it, the rookie will not replace Lind in the lineup. Despite outstanding surface numbers at triple-A, the Brazil native has the ceiling...
Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie will begin serving a four-game suspension Thursday night for throwing his helmet into home plate umpire Bill Miller.
Major League Baseball handed down the penalty Wednesday, a day after Lawrie went ballistic on Miller over two called strikes that appeared to be outside the strike zone in the ninth inning of a 4-3 loss to the Rays.
Since the start of 2011, the Blue Jays are tied for 26th in WAR among first basemen. Yesterday, the team sought to do something to change that mark when they demoted Adam Lind to Triple-A. The most shocking thing about the demotion may be that it took so long.
In 2009, Lind took the baseball world by storm, posting a .394 wOBA in his age 25 season. It wasn’t a season that was...
Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie has dropped his suspension appeal, and will begin serving his four-game punishment on Thursday. He earned the suspension Wednesday for hurling his batting helmet toward home-plate umpire Bill Miller after being called out on a called third strike on Tuesday.
TORONTO -- Catcher J.P. Arencibia says he doesn't worry about his batting average. What he wants to do is drive in runs. And that's what he did Friday as he drove in a career-high six runs with two homers and a single in the Toronto Blue Jays' 14-5 over the New York Mets. He had lots of help. Rajai Davis also hit two home runs for the first time in his career and...
After eight innings of futility, the Mets' best chance to beat Brandon Morrow was cut short by a close call on the bases.

TORONTO - The home run ball got Phil Hughes again. The New York Yankees right-hander tried to get a 3-2 cutter past Jose Bautista in the third inning on Thursday. It spun instead of cut, and Hughes watched it soar over the fence for a two-run home run. J.P. Arencibia also hit a two-run homer against reliever Cory Wade in the seventh and the Toronto Blue Jays completed a sweep...
