Found April 04, 2013 on Tireball.com:
The Long Island Ducks are far from where Vladimir Guerrero wants to be but the veteran outfielder will have to prove himself there if he ever wants to play in the majors again. Guerrero is attempting a comeback after sitting out the 2012 season. The Blue Jays signed Guerrero to a minor league deal last year but granted the now 38-year-old his release after just 12 minor league games. During that time Guerrero hit .358/.364/.679 with four homers. Guerrero was once one of the premier sluggers in baseball and has 449 career home runs. In his last big league season, 2011, he had his worst season of his career. Guerrero hit just 13 home runs for the Baltimore Orioles and finished with a career low .290/.317/.416 line.

As John 'Scoundrel' Farrell (re)turns

Apparently the fine people of Toronto didn't take to kindly to the fact that current Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to reunite with his former organization this past offseason, eh?

Jose Bautista: From Journeyman to MLB HR King

Last year’s Blue Jays manager is this year’s Red Sox manager, a manager that was exchanged for a starting shortstop. The Blue Jays have gone in with an “all-in” mentality, where has the Red Sox have adopted...
