Dayton Blows Up Team

  I don’t get it. Dayton Moore, try as he may, just cant seem to please everyone. On Monday, he traded Danny Valencia for an old backup catcher and a project AAA pitcher. I like the trade. Don’t love it…but its so minor, honestly who cares? Many feel that losing Danny Valencia means losing a good right handed hitter, which is true. There are always two sides to a coin however...

Reds host slumping Blue Jays

The AL East-leading Toronto Blue Jays should be thrilled to be in Cincinnati. But anywhere other than New York would be just fine. The Blue Jays are hoping a change of scenery can help them begin reversing a sluggish stretch Friday night in the opener of this three-game set with the Reds.

The Jays won their ninth straight as Dioner Navarro opened the...
