    It Was 80s Night At The Skydome Last Night (Pics)

    The 80s and early 90s were certainly a good time to be a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays.  Not only did the team finish with a record above .500 in every season from 1983 to 1993, but they also made the playoffs five times between 1985 and 1993, and won back-to-back World Series Championships […]

    Jose Bautista Makes A Great Diving Catch (Video)

    When Jose Bautista was selected as a starter for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game, many thought he would be providing a highlight or two with his bat.  After all, he does lead the league with an astounding 31 home runs, one year after belting a league-high 54.  However, Joey Bats showed baseball fans everywhere why […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/7/11 — Travis Hafner

    Isn’t it amazing how one swing of the bat can change everything in a baseball game? The Toronto Blue Jays went into the bottom of the ninth inning last night with a 4-0 lead over the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.  Most would think that the game would be wrapped up at that point, but […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/24/11 — Ricky Romero

    In his last outing Ricky Romero pitched seven solid innings against the Atlanta Braves, allowing only six hits and two runs against.  However, he would still suffer the loss and he voiced his displeasure regarding the lack of run support following the game.  He was back on the mound yesterday afternoon, and this time around […]

    The Atlanta Braves entered last night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays looking to record back-to-back wins at home for the first time since May 29.  Pitcher Tim Hudson did all that he could on the mound to get his team that elusive victory, but he didn’t receive much help from the rest of the […]

    I spent most of last night taking in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins, but whenever I was afforded the opportunity, I couldn’t help but check in to see how my Toronto Blue Jays were doing against the Kansas City Royals.  With the Jays losing the […]

    After getting off to a scorching start to the 2011 MLB season, many pitchers have decided to pitch around the Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista and take their chance on whoever is hitting behind him in Toronto’s lineup.  Yesterday afternoon it was Adam Lind hitting behind Bautista, and he made the Baltimore Orioles pay for trying […]

    Most of us know Jose Bautista as the right fielder for the Toronto Blue Jays and the current MLB home runs leader.  But what most of us don’t know is that by night, Bautista trades in that life for the life of “Joey Bats.”  Bautista and “Joey Bats” may seem like two completely different people, […]

    Playing north of the 49th parallel, the Toronto Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista rarely gets the recognition he deserves.  Last season he led the majors in home runs with a total of 54.  This season he appears to be well on his way to earning the home run title once again, and his performance yesterday afternoon […]

    The Tampa Bay Rays’ David Price was looking to rebound following a season-worst performance where he gave up 12 hits and five earned runs over 4 1/3 innings during a loss against the Angels.  He did just that yesterday afternoon. The Toronto Blue Jays’ hitters had no answer for Price on this day, as they […]

    The Phillies Hooters Ball Girls Are Back, And Looking Fantastic (Video)

    Last year we were introduced to the Philadelphia Phillies’ interesting use of Hooters girls during their spring training games in order to help increase ticket sales.  That plan must have worked out well, as they gave yet another lovely lady the day off from delivering chicken wings to drunken men so that she could try […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Saved The Day, And His Beer

    It was supposed to be an enjoyable day at the ballpark for these fans last Friday, but things nearly took a turn for the worse when Dan Uggla’s bat went flying into the stands during a spring training game in Kissimmee, Florida against the Toronto Blue Jays. Thankfully, the guy in the Gators t-shirt was […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/30/10 – Jose Bautista

    The Toronto Blue Jays may not be headed to the postseason, but there is one player on their team that doesn’t want 2010 to end. Jose Bautista is having the year of his life. Bautista went off again last night against the Twins in Minnesota. He started out 0-2, but then in the sixth he […]

    Jays’ Players Sport Mustaches In Cito Gaston’s Farewell Game

    In 1982, Cito Gaston joined the Toronto Blue Jays coaching staff as a hitting coach.  In 1989 he was named the club’s manager and only three years later he would begin a run of back-to-back World Series Championship seasons with the Jays.  Those two league titles would be the last the city would see from […]
