  • 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

    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 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 […]

    The SI Jinx Gets Roy Halladay For At Least One Day

    After being traded in the off-season to the Philadelphia Phillies, there has been high expectations placed on both Roy Halladay, and his new club.  In fact, the expectations are so high that the Doc was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2010 Baseball Preview edition. You know what that means.  The jinx is on, […]

    Roy Halladay Writes Thank You Letter in Toronto Newspaper

    Roy Halladay may be one of the greatest pitchers of this generation.  In fact, it’s almost a certainty that he is one of the greatest.  He has only one huge blemish on his resume.  After 12 years in Major League Baseball, he has not pitched in a single playoff game.  This is not an indictment […]

    Welcome To Toronto, a.k.a. Loserville

    Can there be a North American sports city that has suffered more disappointment than Toronto over the past decade or so?  I doubt it. Living in Canada’s most populated city, we have come to witness the downfall that is Toronto’s professional sports teams.  It is where stars have come to lay their careers to rest, […]

    Amazing Catch + Fans Reaction = Priceless

    Total Pro Sports – If you thought  Pirates Delwyn Young’s catch against the San Francisco Giants or Phillies ball girl Kelli Curci foul ball snag were amazing, then all you have to do is look at the fans reaction to Blue Jays Rod Barajas spectacular catch.  The fans reactions are priceless especially the blond girl who got a […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 09/30/09 – Roy Halladay

    Total Pro Sports – In what may be his final start for the Toronto Blue Jays, Roy Halladay wanted to end the season on a strong note at Fenway last night against the Boston Red Sox, and he did just that.  Looking to complete a sweep of the Sox the Doc was at his best, […]

    Mike Blowers Makes The Call Of The Year

    Total Pro Sports – There is nothing more exciting for a sports broadcaster than predicting the outcome of an event and actually getting it right.  They do it all the time, but we never seem to hear about all their missed calls.  Only the ones they get right. Problem is, often their correct predictions are […]
