  • Jose Bautista Is An MLB Slugger By Day, Mafia Hitman By Night (Video)

    Jose Bautista Is An MLB Slugger By Day, Mafia Hitman By Night (Video)

    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, […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/15/11 — Jose Bautista

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/15/11 — Jose Bautista

    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 Stat Line Of The Night — 5/5/11 — David Price

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/5/11 — David Price

    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

    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 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

    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 […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/28/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/28/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Yankees are having an incredible year offensively, but their pitching has been somewhat suspect all season.  That is not the case when their ace, C.C. Sabathia, takes the mound.  Sabathia is putting up another monster year and anchoring a shaky rotation.  His Cy Young numbers are impressive, and last night he showed again why […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/7/10 — Vernon Wells

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/7/10 — Vernon Wells

    Let’s just say its a bad idea to bet against Vernon Wells when he plays the Texas Rangers.  As the Rangers have found out this year, when Wells and the Blue Jays come to town, it usually spells trouble for them.  He was at it again last night, helping the Jays to an 8-5 victory over the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/31/10 – Jose Bautista

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/31/10 – Jose Bautista

    Those poor unfortunate Jays.  Had they not been placed in the AL East division, they may actually have a shot at the post season.  But that is not the case, and now they find themselves in fourth place in their division with a 69-63 record.  That’s right.  Six games above .500 and it is only […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/23/10 – Jose Bautista

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/23/10 – Jose Bautista

    What can the league leader in home runs do to help your team against the vaunted Yankees?  How about secure all your RBIs and 2of your 3 runs in a 3 to 2 victory.  That is what Jose Bautista did last night.  The league leader in home runs with 40 hit 2 more last night […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/8/10 – Brandon Morrow

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/8/10 – Brandon Morrow

    In a year of no-hitters, it should come as no surprise that another pitching gem was tossed yesterday.  And of course what would a no-hit bid be in 2010 without somehow involving the Tampa Bay Rays.  Although Brandon Morrow couldn’t quite finish the job, his performance was still one for the books as the Toronto […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/3/10 – Ricky Romero

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/3/10 – Ricky Romero

    Last night fans gathered at Yankee Stadium in anticipation of Alex Rodriguez hitting his long awaited 600th home run.  As it turned out, they probably would have been happy with at least a hit.  A-Rod struggled to do anything against Jays’ ace Ricky Romero and the same could be said for the rest of the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/14/10 – John Buck

    The Blue Jays have played very well through the first half of the season, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t immune to some odd situations.  Last night was one of those.  While John Buck brought his big bat and created some thunder from above, the Jays also felt something odd going on beneath their feet. […]

  • Blue Jays’ Ball Boy Disciplined by Ump, Officer and Mascot (Video)

    Blue Jays’ Ball Boy Disciplined by Ump, Officer and Mascot (Video)

    Catch balls that are ruled foul and steer clear of those called in-play.  Sounds simple, but life as a ball boy is not always as easy as it seems.  One wrong move and you can have everyone against you, including umpires, police officers, and mascots.  That was the case for one ball boy this weekend […]
