Deep League Thoughts: Brett Lawrie

Hey y'all, let me know if you've heard this one before. Brett Lawrie is a fantasy sleeper for the YYYY Fantasy Baseball Season! In fact, this isn't even a new post. I just went back from all the posts between 2012 and 2014 and did a mash-up of them. It was hard to get them all the same font so be thankful this doesn't read like a ransom note! Speaking of notes, it feels like...

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 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?

Brett Lawrie Is The Proud New Owner Of An Absolutely Atrocious Mustache

As someone who is terrible at growing facial hair, even I have to say that Brett Lawrie’s new mustache is god awful. As you can see in the selfie above, Lawrie has an upper lip caterpillar that probably prevents him from being able to come within a few hundred feet of a Chuck E. Cheese and/or public playground, but he really seems to like it for some reason. Lawrie on his new moustache...

WATCH: Brett Lawrie makes great diving stop, throw

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie is an incredible athlete.  Of course he can field and hit in baseball, but he can also dunk a basketball on a bounce, one handed with a spin (while wearing headphones).  Today he displayed his fielding skills as not only did he knock the ball down, he pounced up and threw out the fastest runner for the New York Mets, Eric Young Jr.  Watch how...
