Three unlikely players key to the Toronto Blue Jays’ success

The Toronto Blue Jays sit atop the American League with a 91-65 record largely thanks to the contributions of star players like Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista, and David Price. While those players have made the biggest contributions, there are three unlikely players in particular who’s breakout seasons have helped catapult the club to the top of the standings. Marco Estrada I personally...

The Success of Marco Estrada

The air is dense, the weather is colder by the day, and Toronto is still captivated by their baseball team. It’s a different kind of excitement. 86-64 reads the record in the standings, a 3.5-game lead on a team they are usually looking up at. The stakes haven’t been this high in decades, and yet, there is almost a feeling of relaxation circling the Rogers Centre. As the postseason...

Brewers acquire Adam Lind from Blue Jays

The Milwaukee Brewers have moved quickly to fill their hole at first base this offseason, acquiring former Blue Jay Adam Lind in exchange for long reliever Marco Estrada. Toronto just picked up a $7.5 million option on Lind for 2015, and the Brewers will now have him at that salary. Milwaukee also has an $8 million club option for Lind in 2016, making him more than a rental. In...

Milwaukee Brewers: Marco Estrada should move to the bullpen

The title of this is a bit misleading, I must say. Milwaukee Brewers starter Marco Estrada has only recently begun struggling on the mound, so this piece will not be suggesting that Estrada should be permanently removed from the rotation. In his last three starts, Estrada has only made it through six innings once and has given up 18 earned runs on 22 hits. He has also given up...

Brewers' Estrada vows to be better after Sunday's shaky outing

MILWAUKEE -- Despite another start in which he struggled to keep the ball in the ballpark and runs off the board, Marco Estrada's spot in Milwaukee's rotation appears to be safe -- for now. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke offered a bit of support for his struggling right-hander after Estrada gave up three more home runs and five runs over five innings in Milwaukee's 13-4 loss to the...

Estrada, Roenicke frustrated after Brewers setback versus Mets

After yet another start in which he was burned by the home-run ball, Marco Estrada's spot in Milwaukee's rotation may be in jeopardy. Estrada gave up his major-league leading 19th and 20th home runs of the season, as the New York Mets scored six runs on just five hits in a 6-2 victory over the Brewers at Citi Field. A two-run home run by Daniel Murphy got the Mets on the board in...

Estrada battles, keys Brewers win

MILWAUKEE -- Marco Estrada let out a sigh of exhaustion when asked if Tuesday night's start was the epitome of battling on the mound. "You have no idea," Estrada said. "Every inning I battled." Without his best stuff, Estrada managed to hold the Pittsburgh Pirates to just one run over six innings, battling a high pitch count to do enough to help the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-2 victory...

Estrada determined to stay healthy in 2014

PHOENIX -- Starting pitcher Marco Estrada was happy with nearly every number he posted for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2013, except one: days on the disabled list. "Injuries. The DL. It's so frustrating," said Estrada. "Rehabbing in Arizona, watching the team and not being able to do anything about it. It's definitely frustrating. I wouldn't wish it on anybody." For the second straight...

Milwaukee Brewers’ new pitching rotation

After winning only 74 games last year, the Milwaukee Brewers realized they needed better pitching to contend in a tough NL Central. The three teams in the NL Central that went into the playoffs all had pitching staffs that were able to consistently eat innings and keep the score low. The Brewers’ pitching staff never really got into a groove to provide low scores and pitch deep...
