Mark Buehrle, bats power Blue Jays past Orioles

Breathtaking defensive plays in the field. “We won it with force,” boasted Brett Lawrie, who did indeed have much to swagger about for the part he played in an 11-3 trouncing of the Orioles. And look here, an absurdly miniscule 0.86 ERA for Mark Buehrle, the slop-ball pitcher who’s now 3-0 just barely two weeks into the...

Jose Bautista one of few positives on Toronto Blue Jays’ troubled roster

Your browser does not support iframes. While the Toronto Blue Jays have been the definition of MLB disappointment over the last two decades, the past few years in particular have frustrated baseball fans in Canada to the point that the state of the franchise has become a running joke.

R.A. Dickey hoping to carry Blue Jays’ rotation

It hasn’t exactly been a productive offseason for the Toronto Blue Jays, and after an epic spending-spree led to the franchise entering last season as a trendy, World Series favorite, baseball fans north of the border are understandably learning to re-temper their collective expectations.

Player Profile #140: Brett Lawrie | 2B/3B | TOR

Going to bat for Brett Lawrie is all about having faith. Even I, one of Lawrie’s supporters, have to admit there is less evidence to suggest he will be the superstar I once thought he would become following his amazing cup of coffee in 2011 when he tore up the league for 26 R, 9 HR, 25 RBI, 7 SB and a .291 BA in just 43 games. Even if the superstar status is out, and call me crazy...
