If I had told you two years ago that Edwin Encarnacion would be leading the Toronto Blue Jays in home runs, RBIs, walks and OBP since the start of 2012 you would have probably laughed, in my face. Well folks that is exactly what the Dominican native has done. With injuries hampering Jose Bautista for the past two seasons, Encarnacion is emerging as the new superstar sensation of...
For a time, it looked like the Blue Jays were going to have an easy time of things Tuesday night. Then, it looked like the Red Sox had everything under control. In the end, the Jays emerged victorious, thanks in no small part to Edwin Encarnacion‘s bat.
