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...
Marco Estrada talks about a wacky win for the Toronto Blue Jays over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Give Chris Coghlan a gold medal, because that was an Olympic-worthy leap into home plate. Over the years, there have been some amazing plays at the plate. But this acrobatic number from Coghlan might be right up there among the best of them. With Yadier Molina in his path, Coghlan did the unthinkable and leapt right overtop of Molina and crashed right in top of home plate. If someone...

TORONTO — Baseball can be a funny game. The harder you try the more the game tends to slip away from you. 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...

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. They are a team filled with sluggers and Cy Young candidates, yet they are sitting dead last in baseball today with a paltry five wins. They already find themselves 7.5 games behind the first place Baltimore Orioles, who are playing some...

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has joined his good friend, Josh Donaldson, on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. The Blue Jays sit at the bottom of the American League East with only 4 wins. There have been minimal bright spots for the Blue Jays and with Tulowitzki and Donaldson spending time on the disabled list, it’s just disaster after disaster for the team...
Very few fans have been showing up to Tampa Bay Rays games this season, but the ones who do are creating one heck of a home field advantage for their team.In their 8-7 loss to Tampa on Wednesday, the Detroit Tigers allowed two very catchable fly balls to fall between them in the outfield during the game’s first three innings. Both happened when second baseman Ian Kinsler ranged...
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Toronto Blue Jays’ MVP third baseman Josh Donaldson could be out for 2-4 weeks with a recurring calf issue.Jon Morosi recently told MLB Network Donaldson would more than likely be placed on the disabled list. While we weren’t sure of the length of the time he would spend on the list, this is not quite what we were expecting.Calf injuries...
The Toronto Blue Jays followed up their rough first week of the season with an equally bad second week. The Jays once again went 1-5 to fall to 2-10 on the year. There is still 150 games left on the season, but anyone can see that the Jays are not playing well. On top of that, there was even more bad news as Aaron Sanchez and Josh Donaldson were put on the 10 day DL and JA...
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...
Video games are more and more realistic. Gone are the days of 8-bit video games (especially now that Nintendo discontinued it) and now we have games that eerily look real life.For Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez, he’s not only on the Canadian cover of MLB The Show but he’s a serious gamer. MLB The Show is so realistic that Sanchez uses it to study opponents to help himself...
Here’s something fantasy owners and fans were dreading.Toronto Blue Jays MVP third baseman Josh Donaldson will more than likely be placed on the disabled list following a recurring injury in his calf. He has been dealing with the injury since last weekend and strained it once again Thursday night after rounding first base and began limping towards second.At the moment, it doesn’t...
Between the Griffeys, Boones, Alous, and Bonds to name a few, baseball has long been a sport where family lines have found success. Could the Tulowitzki family be the next to join the crowd?Troy Tulowitzki has a 3-year-old son Taz who looks pretty awesome given his age.Take a look at this clip shared by SportsNet Canada of Taz taking some swings at Rogers Centre: That’s a pretty...
Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson left Sunday’s game versus the Tampa Bay Rays with a calf injury. The Blue Jays have said that Donaldson should be available for Tuesday’s game. One thing is for certain; it’s not good news for a Blue Jays team that has struggled during the first week of the 2017 season with Donaldson being one of the lone bright spots. The 31-year old has...
