The Case for the Blue Jays

A healthy Aaron Sanchez represents a real benefit for Toronto’s postseason odds. (Photo: Keith Allison)   At the beginning of the season, the Blue Jays were a clear playoff contender.

Vladimir Guerrero launches softball dinger, admires the hell out of it

Vladimir Guerrero was one of the very best — and arguably the most entertaining — hitters in baseball over the last 20 years. The former Expos and Angels superstar cranked 449 home runs and put together a ridiculous .318/.379/.553 slash line over his 16-year MLB career (which came to an end in 2011). His absurd plate coverage and ability to crush pitches out of the strike zone...
