Brett Lawrie Staying Busy With Girlfriend Dana Long

  Canadian baseball bro Brett Lawrie has been busy this offseason, his first not as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. He has a new team (the A’s), he’s suddenly a Cavs fan and he got a selfie stick for Christmas (not kidding) that he uses in the wild. Oh, and he has a new offseason girlfriend — Dana Long, a Canadian with a commerce degree and abs. Lawrie has been on the...

A’s send young Blue Jays fan care package after acquiring Brett Lawrie (pics)

To say that Amelia, a 6-year-old Toronto Blue Jays fan, has enjoyed something of a baseball-related windfall of goodwill over the holidays would be an understatement.

Oakland Athletics 'adopt' 6-year-old Blue Jays fan devastated by Brett Lawrie trade

The story of 6-year-old Amelia's struggle with fanhood adversity has become even more uplifting thanks to the Oakland Athletics' "adoption" of the girl. In case you missed it, young Amelia suffered an emotional breakdown in December when the young Blue Jays fan learned that the Jays had traded away her favorite player, third-baseman Brett Lawrie (plus prospects) to the A's for Josh...

Player Profile #168: Brett Lawrie | 2B/3B | OAK

Full disclosure: Brett Lawrie is not our 168th-ranked player. He actually belongs around 190. He’s out lowest-ranked 2B or 3B in the top 200 and got a little lost in the shuffle, but rest assured that Lawrie has the potential to jump the 20 spots to 168, and we didn’t want to disrupt the countdown for such a small discrepancy (what amounts to maybe two rounds late in a draft...

Oakland A’s: Recapping the A’s offseason trades so far

The Oakland A’s were very active during this year’s winter meetings. However, many are not sure if those trades will actually benefit the Oakland A’s for 2015. The Athletics traded away three of their strongest players – Josh Donaldson, Brandon Moss, and Jeff Samardzija. All of these players were All-Stars in 2014 and their presence will surely be missed next season. So,...

Brett Lawrie Makes Little Girl’s Day After Being Traded

New Oakland Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie played parts of four seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays before being sent out west for Josh Donaldson the day after Thanksgiving. And while Lawrie doesn’t have the name recognition on a national (or shall we say international level), he obviously had one huge fan north of the border. As you can see below, a six-year old girl named Amelia...

Brett Lawrie visits girl who was devastated when he got traded

YouTube videos of kids crying over sports are really nothing new, so when a Toronto Blue Jays fan posted one of his inconsolable 6-year-old daughter after Brett Lawrie was traded, most people probably watched it and moved on. Not Brett Lawrie, though. The third baseman, who was shipped to the Oakland Athletics for Josh Donaldson, saw the viral video and took notice. So on Friday...

Brett Lawrie: Blue Jays’ Turf ‘Has A Lot Do’ With Recent Injuries

The Toronto Blue Jays have been active on the free agent market in recent years and look poised to make a move in the competitive American League East. The only problem?
