Chris Coghlan Takes Flight

Seemingly ever since humans gained sentience, we’ve been obsessed with the concept of flight. How powerful birds must have seemed to ancient man, able to free themselves from the constraints of the ground. Joyous was the starling, dancing and warbling through the air. Terrifying was the hawk, diving for a kill. To fly is to move in ways unimaginable for those trapped on the surface...

The entirety of the Toronto Blue Jays roster has frustratingly dealt with this all season with the team breaking out of the gates to a dismal 5-13 record. They know they’re a good team, but when they press and try to overcome their slow art in a single game nothing seems...

Can the Toronto Blue Jays right the ship?

The Toronto Blue Jays have gotten off to a miserable start in their 2017 campaign. In fact, their start has them at the bottom of all of baseball.

What is wrong with the Toronto Blue Jays offense?

It’s no secret that the Toronto Blue Jays are struggling so far this season.  Coming into Saturday, the Jays were 1-9 and had lost seven in a row.  It took a Kendrys Morales walk-off home run to overcome a blown save by recently returned closer Roberto Osuna, just to win game number two.  It’s not like they are getting blown out consistently.  On the contrary, they are in...
