    Jose Bautista

    The Blue Jays 2013 plan worked out pretty well for their second game in 2014. And Jonathan Papelbon shows us the meaning of accountability. In his own special way.

    Toronto Blue Jays general manager Anthopoulos talks to the media at the team's MLB baseball spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida

    In a Q&A with Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star, Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos says that he would consider further extending veterans Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, and Jose Reyes. In doing so, Anthopoulos cited veterans Carlos Beltran and David Ortiz as examples of older players being very productive. He added, “I would not put it past…

    Bovada released its player prop bets for the 2014 season on Wednesday, providing odds on the AL and NL MVP and Cy Young races, as well as MLB’s home run leader. Here’s a look at what I consider to be the best bets in each category. Please do note, though, all information here is for…

  7. Edwin Jackson sidestepped game plan, threw all fastballs on Friday

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v St. Louis Cardinals

    Edwin Jackson gave up three runs on four hits in his start against the Indians on Friday, but that wasn’t the shocking part of what happened. Unbeknownst to manager Rick Renteria and pitching coach Chris Bosio, Jackson threw all fastballs in his outing — 50 of them. Via MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat: “I think maybe, as…

  8. Jose Bautista is in The Best Shape of His Life

    Feb 24, 2014, 6:15 AM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' Bautista looks into the stands between innings during a MLB American League baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg

    We heard about Melky Cabrera being in The Best Shape of His Life last week. Well, he didn’t work out alone. He had teammate Jose Bautista with him, and Bautista characterizes the purpose of those workouts: “It was kind of easy and natural and we just decided to start earlier than we normally do,” Bautista said. “We…

  9. Rosenthal: Chances of a Mark Trumbo trade “increasing”

    Dec 9, 2013, 6:43 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto has routinely downplayed a potential trade of Mark Trumbo so far this offseason, but things are heating up at the Winter Meetings in Orlando. Sources: Chances of Trumbo trade increasing. #Angels more open. #Dbacks pushing. Other teams in, all with improving offers.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) December 09, 2013 The Diamondbacks…

    Toronto Blue Jays' Bautista looks into the stands between innings during a MLB American League baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg

    Despite the recently debunked trade rumor involving Jose Bautista and the Phillies, started by radio personality Howard Eskin, the Blue Jays may still be willing to move him for pitching help according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Cafardo writes that the Jays are looking to add multiple starters. Given the dearth of quality…

  11. Heyman: no truth to the Jose Bautista-for-Domonic Brown rumor

    Nov 13, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' Bautista looks into the stands between innings during a MLB American League baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg

    Last night Howard Eskin of 94 WIP in Philly reported that the Blue Jays and Phillies were discussing a possible Jose Bautista-for-Dominic Brown trade. It was something of a crazy rumor as far as these things go, but I suppose there is crazier. Jon Heyman says this morning, however, that there’s nothing to it. Eskin…

  12. Wild rumor: Phillies, Jays discussing Jose Bautista-Domonic Brown swap

    Jose Bautista

    94WIP Radio’s Howard Eskin isn’t necessarily a baseball guy, but he is a big player in the Philadelphia sports radio scene, and he’s reporting tonight that the Phillies and Blue Jays are involved in “serious talks” about a deal involving Jose Bautista and Domonic Brown. It’d be a swap of 2013 All-Stars, one seven years…

    This is pretty cool. Last night, Orioles slugger Chris Davis became the 24th player in MLB history to reach the 50-homer mark and the first since Toronto’s Jose Bautista in 2010. To mark the occasion, Dan Wohl of MLB.com has combined all of his home runs into one wonderful GIF. Enjoy. Follow @djshort

  14. Chris Davis joins the 50-homer club

    Sep 13, 2013, 9:26 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis became the first Major Leaguer to hit 50 home runs in a single season since Jose Bautista hit 54 in 2010. With the game tied 3-3 in the top of the eighth, Davis drove a Steve Delabar 2-2 change-up to left-center for his milestone home run, putting the Orioles ahead…

  15. ICYMI, Edwin Encarnacion is superb

    Aug 24, 2013, 10:57 PM EDT

    Edwin Encarnacion

    The Blue Jays are just going through the paces right now. Absent Jose Bautista, they’ve lost seven in a row and fallen to 57-73 on the season. The year’s most disappointing team, they have nothing left to play for. Just don’t tell Edwin Encarnacion that. He’s homered three times during the current seven-game losing streak.…

  16. Jose Bautista goes on DL with bone bruise in hip

    Aug 20, 2013, 10:59 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The Blue Jays’ sad year just got a little more depressing: Jose Bautista was placed on the DL after Tuesday’s doubleheader sweep by the Yankees. The cause is a bone bruise in his left hip that knocked out of this afternoon’s matinee. According to Sportsnet.ca’s Shi Davidi, Bautista hurt the hip weeks ago as he…

  17. Jose Bautista leaves game with hip soreness

    Aug 20, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista exited this afternoon’s game in the fourth inning with what the team is calling left hip soreness. Bautista went 0-for-1 with a walk before leaving and Anthony Gose came off the bench to replace him, with Rajai Davis shifting over to right field. After missing 70 games last season…

  18. Jose Bautista dedicated yesterday’s game to a young fan who died

    Aug 10, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    jose bautista getty

    Just an example of how social media can bring fans and players closer. Even under unfortunate circumstances. Derek Lendosky, a 9-year-old boy from Fennimore, WI, was killed in an accident last Sunday. He was a Blue Jays and Jose Bautista fan. His father tweeted to Bautista on Wednesday: @JoeyBats19 On Friday I will be burying…

  19. Blue Jays players from the Dominican talk about PED use in the Dominican

    Aug 9, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Injured Toronto Blue Jays player Jose Reyes smiles as his team plays the Tampa Bay Rays in their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Interesting article from Richard Griffin, in which he talks to Jose Reyes, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion about the alarming number of Dominican players who were involved in the Biogenesis mess and PED stuff in general.  Each of them talks about why that may be and what could be done about it. I find it…

  20. Play of the Day: J.B. Shuck robs Jose Bautista of a home run

    Aug 3, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Oakland Athletics

    In the top of the fourth with the Blue Jays leading 1-0, Jose Bautista hit Tommy Hanson‘s 1-0 offering deep to left field with home run distance. Angels left fielder J.B. Shuck ranged back, timed his leap perfectly directly above the 330-foot marker, and snagged the ball just before falling into a sea of Angels…

  21. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 1, 2013, 7:05 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 6, White Sox 5: Living with a Tigers fan is kinda hard sometimes. Like, when you have the Indians-White Sox game on the TV, she wants the Indians to lose, the White Sox blow a two-run lead in the ninth and then Carlos Santana hits a walkoff homer in extras. It’s even more complicated…

  22. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 31, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game Two

    Pirates 2, Cardinals 1; Pirates 6, Cardinals 0: First. Place. Pirates. And the best record in baseball. A walkoff in the opener and a beatdown in the nightcap. Six straight losses by the reeling Cardinals, who lost Yadier Molina to the DL on top of it all. And maybe — just maybe — the end…

  23. Why, exactly, do we suspect Bartolo Colon of using PEDs?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics Photo Day

    I woke up Sunday morning to see an interesting tweet from Buster Olney: Bartolo Colon is 40 years old and got the win in the 1998 ASG–which is why a whole lot of people in the game wonder if he’s cheating,again. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) July 28, 2013 It struck me funny. Because when I…

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  25. UPDATE: The American League is now up 3-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    10:52 PM: It’s now 3-0 in the bottom of the eighth, as the AL strung some hits off Craig Kimbrel, capped by Jason Kipnis‘ two out double scoring Sal Perez. And a surprise? Mariano Rivera comes into the game in the bottom of the eighth, not the ninth. Interesting choice. 9:41 PM: The AL extends…
