Do we have a farm team in Guangdong from which we get some players?

“We could have gone forever. (Raptors management) kept knocking on the door and I was like, ‘A couple more minutes.’ Because we were really into it."

With Gurriel out time to see if Fisher can make the most out of 40 straight games of consistent AB's.

SRF has a 2.45 ERA, 7.7 K/9 and 5.3 BB/9 at the moment. Don't know why anyone is pissed that Sanchez is gone; he appears to still be here.

To all those who say you shouldn't trade with division rivals: it's really, really fun when they get stuck with the bill.

Heck of a streak for Bo, too bad it had to end. Good ball game.

Maybe next time our rising star LFer has a painful looking non-contact slide and has to leave the game due to knee pain we won't rush him back and play him every day until his other leg gives out. Let's give Nikki Huffman a little help please.

Brett Gardner gets ejected for saying nothing to the umpire, a breakdown


Homer happy Blue Jays have a blast in win over Yankees | Toronto Sun

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner was unceremoniously ejected from Friday’s contest for knocking on the ceiling of the visitor’s dugout.

That was the apparent sin in the view of home-plate ump Chris Segal, who tossed the Yankee veteran causing him to lose it. Gardner stormed the field and had to be restrained by manager Aaron Boone.


The New York dugout was up in arms with Segal’s interpretation of balls and strikes, in particular a called third strike on Cameron Maybin earlier in the inning.

Font prefers Verdana.

Interesting that he was apparently tipping his pitches before joining us, since joining the jays in small sample 2.16 FIP 16 SO/Walk nice bb/9 hr/9. Alot harder to hit when you don't know what's being thrown.

if you fix him hes a 95 MPH bullpen arm with a decent curve ball, slider and i think he throws a splitter as well.

As Someone mentioned, Bo's starting to get more and more off speed pitches. Not sure if he's not recognizing them but he's starting to open his hips a way too early.
