Encarnacion, to be fair, was...

Steady Eddie leads Blue Jays over Indians

The Blue Jays will go absolutely nowhere if Edwin Encarnacion doesn’t hit. Steady Eddie has been anything but this season and if you’re wondering what’s wrong with the Jays offence, look no further than Encarnacion. Jose Reyes has not been with the team and that has hurt and the bottom of the order has been a black hole of unproductive outs. It’s unfair to place the burden...

Baltimore Orioles Ball Girl Saves Run By Fielding Fair Ball (Video)

The Baltimore Orioles benefited from an extra outfielder on Sunday. An Orioles ball girl made a fine play on a hard-hit ground ball down the left field line off the bat of Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion, ranging to her left and extending her glove to make an impressive snag.

Orioles Ball Girl Makes An Unfortunate Great Play

Why Pay Less for Fantasy Pitching (Part 2)

Today’s reason: because everyone else is doing it. There’s an ongoing discussion in the fantasy baseball blogosphere about the best split auction (or draft) split between pitching and hitting.  Some of the most popular fantasy advice sites have a default setting of 70% budgeted for hitting and 30% or pitching.  This despite the fact that almost every league has the same number...

Toronto Blue Jays: 2014 season preview

A couple of questions come to mind when I think about this year’s Toronto Blue Jays.  1. Is manager,  John Gibbons’s job on the line?  2. Is this general manager, Alex Anthopoulos’s last year with the organization.? It is a possibility if the Jays have a bad year again.  Toronto has to improve their win-loss record this season.  The Jays finished the 2013 season 74-88...
