Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie made an acrobatic move on an infield chopper Friday night, barehanded the ball and threw out Kansas City Royals slugger, Billy Butler at first. Take a look:
This play was crucial as it could have been the tying run at first in the eighth inning. Toronto was able to shut the Kansas City down winning the game 3-2.

The NHL had the “Golden Jet” and it looks like the MLB has the “Golden Brett” as Brett Lawrie continues to solidify himself as a “Gold Glove” calibre third baseman. Lawrie has dazzled all season defensively making tough plays like this one routine. There will definitely be some gold in his trophy case before he retires.

I don’t know, but maybe I was a bit too hasty to suggest that the Toronto Blue Jays should get rid of knuckleballer, R.A. Dickey in the last article I wrote.
In the first of a three game series against the New York Yankees, Dickey pitched good and helped his team to a 5-2 victory. ”He (Dickey) was really good,” said Jay’s manager, John Gibbons in the post...
File this one under ‘check back on him in the spring’ but Second Baseman Ryan Goins has been producing for the big club. He has a hit in all eight games he’s played since arriving in Toronto and has made a number of standout defensive plays as well. I won’t spend a ton of time talking about his .423 batting average over his week-plus worth of action, or his six runs scored...

Whatever humor can be found in most police reports is unintentional. Alas, they do things a little differently in Canada.
You may remember that back in May some idiot ran onto the field at a Toronto Blue Jays game. Well, Drunk Jays Fans got its hands on the arrest report , and it's a work of art.

A bright spot in an otherwise dismal season north of the border, Toronto setup man Steve Delabar tossed a scoreless inning in his first rehab appearance on Wednesday night. Out of action since being diagnosed with right shoulder inflammation on August 4th, Delabar has been carefully monitored after dealing with soreness prior to be sidelined.

Entering Friday with a 60-74 record, the Toronto Blue Jays are 18 1/2 games back in the American League East and miles out of playoff contention.
It’s understandable if Jays fans have checked out for the fall, hoping the team’s highly touted roster will get its act together come spring, but at least one Toronto supporter was already prepared to write off the season months ago...
Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow is still at least three weeks away from picking up a baseball and may require surgery on the entrapped radial nerve in his right forearm that ended his season.
Currently the 29-year-old is in the middle of a six-week moratorium from throwing and will find out in the next few weeks whether surgery will be required to release the entrapped nerve...
More than a handful of fans per MLB season make the idiotic decision to to hop the barrier that separates spectators from the field. In most cases, this results in a hefty fan and a night in a local jail. The risk is obviously worth the reward for some people. We’re glad one Toronto Blue […]
