Infuriated by the latest review challenge to go against his Toronto Blue Jays, Jose Bautista blasted baseball’s replay system as a “joke” incapable of getting calls on the field right that needs to be eliminated.

GIF: Melky Cabrera Gets Robbed at the Plate During Blue Jays/Athletics Game

What is sad about this call is that it appears as if the umpire was in position to make the right call yet somehow messes this one up. I don't know if they reviewed this or not, but I can see from the play-by-play he was officially called out.@cjzero/TwitterAt least it didn't cost the Toronto the game since they lost this one to Oakland 5-1.

Daily DraftStreet Picks: Thursday, Jun 26

Yesterday’s lineup was looking promising early as Jose Reyes hit a leadoff homer and the offense put together a solid start, but then Detroit’s Martinez’s outperformed Miguel Cabrera and Rajai Davis and Hisashi Iwakuma imploded against a weak Boston lineup. Overall, we scored 50.92 points and finished 826th-of-1,650 — literally right in the middle. We won some double-ups...

Jays blow big lead, get by Yankees 7-6

It began as a pitcher’s duel, then evolved into a laugher but by the time this game got down to the short strokes, it had elements of a disaster in the making. It ended with a Blue Jays celebration behind the pitcher’s mound, as Jose Reyes scored from second base on a throwing error in the bottom of the ninth for a 7-6 victory over the New York Yankees. All the sins that led...

Cardinals better bring the good lumber to Toronto

The Toronto Blue Jays are riding high after another sweep of one of the AL's other top teams and could have one of their hottest hitters back in the lineup for their return home.

Which Giants Deserve to be All-Stars?

It’s that time of the year again. The time when fans can go social-media crazy. The time when they can argue tirelessly with other fans over which player is more deserving. The time when teams will bribe their fan bases to vote. That’s right, it’s All-Star voting time. In 2012, Giants fans managed to piss off baseball fans all over the country when they voted in Buster Posey...

FG on Fox: Positive Regression in Toronto

Last year, the Toronto Blue Jays were supposed to be contenders. They were crowned the winners of the off-season after acquiring Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, R.A. Dickey, and Melky Cabrera in the same winter, giving their roster a big boost on paper. On the field, though, it didn’t work. Johnson was lousy and […]
