  1. Quote of the Day: The Blue Jays are playing “hard as crud”

    May 10, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Crud

    R.A. Dickey got a no-decision and the Blue Jays got the loss last night. Yet another loss in a season full of them so far. Dickey explains that it’s not about the lack of effort: “It’s just sad, because you pour your heart and soul into the game and it doesn’t always end up in…

  2. J.A. Happ expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks

    May 9, 2013, 7:34 PM EDT

    J.A. Happ

    J.A. Happ was released from the hospital yesterday after he was hit in the head by a line drive during Tuesday’s start against the Rays. While the most important thing is that he’s going to be OK, the Blue Jays are going to have to get by without him for a little while. According to…

  3. Brett Lawrie is making friends on Twitter again

    May 9, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie

    Near the end of last season Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie got so worked up about Twitter that he announced he was quitting, only to rejoin almost immediately. Today he’s worked up again, no doubt because the Blue Jays are in last place at 13-22 and being decimated by injuries, and Lawrie decided to…

    Anthony Bosch

    The wheels grind slowly, but they grind: The Florida Department of Health, which sent a cease-and-desist order to Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch last month, says it has referred the case to the Miami State Attorney’s office and the Florida Attorney General’s office. Ed Griffith, a spokesman for Miami State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, said local…

    Ricky Romero: human yo-yo: #BlueJays option Ricky Romero to AAA Buffalo and designate Edgar Gonzalez for assignment.Select contracts of Ramon Ortiz and Mickey Storey — Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) May 9, 2013   He was clearly lost last year, yet the Jays didn’t send him down.

    Brandon McCarthy

    Pitcher safety is being talked about again after J.A. Happ was hit in the head by a line drive yesterday and Brandon McCarthy, who needed brain surgery after being struck by a line drive last season, posted some interesting thoughts on Twitter just now: Anybody taking the hard line stance today that pitchers should be…

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

    May 8, 2013, 6:50 AM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 1, White Sox 0: For as good a pitcher as Matt Harvey is, something is clearly wrong with him given that he did not get the win in this game. The object of the game is to win it, Matt. You clearly lack The Will to Win, as I’m sure Hawk Harrelson mentioned during…

  10. J.A. Happ leaves on stretcher after taking line drive to head

    May 7, 2013, 8:28 PM EDT

    Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ departed the field on a stretcher after taking a Desmond Jennings line drive off the left side of his head in the second inning of his start Tuesday evening against the Rays. Happ appeared to be conversing with paramedics as they led him off in a cart, but his neck…

  11. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 7, 2013, 6:44 AM EDT

    Andrelton Simmons

    Braves 7, Reds 4: The Braves weren’t going to be able to maintain any sort of momentum if the offense was all Justin Upton — who can’t do it alone — and Evan Gattis — who is, after all, a rookie. Last night they had help from Andrelton Simmons who hit two bombs and drove…

  12. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 6, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Allen Craig

    Cardinals 10, Brewers 1: The four-game sweep of the Brewers. Four RBI for Allen Craig. That’s six straight wins for the Cards, who are in their customary first place position in rather quiet fashion. The six first place teams right now: Boston, Detroit, Texas, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Francisco. Not many surprises there. I guess…

  13. R.A. Dickey surrenders grand slam as struggles continue

    May 4, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    dickey getty

    Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey appeared to be getting back on track having logged quality starts in three out of his last four appearances entering this afternoon’s match against the offensively-impotent Mariners. Over six innings today, though, the right-hander allowed three home runs, including a first inning lead-off home run to Michael Saunders (his first…

  14. Blue Jays lose Josh Johnson to DL, call up Ricky Romero

    May 2, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    More bad news for the Blue Jays, who placed Josh Johnson on the disabled list with a triceps injury after initially holding out hope that he could start Friday. Instead they’ll call up Ricky Romero, who’d been banished to the minors after a miserable 2012 season that saw him go 1-13 with a 7.35 ERA…

  15. R.A. Dickey will make weekend start after MRI exam

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey looks towards the New York Yankees dugout after Yankees Lyle Overbay hit a go ahead two-run home run during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    R.A. Dickey has been bothered by neck and back problems for most of the season, but an MRI exam showed no structural damage and the Blue Jays announced that he’s expected to take his normal turn in the rotation Saturday against the Mariners. Toronto manager John Gibbons told John Lott of the National Post that…

  16. The Blue Jays had a players-only meeting to deal with the “bad vibes”

    Apr 29, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Blue Jays

    Bill Madden of the Daily News reports that the Blue Jays, off to an awful start, held a players-only, closed-door meeting yesterday DeRosa would later call a players-only meeting to reiterate a lot of what beleaguered Blue Jay manager John Gibbons said to the media the day before … “There’s just a bad vibe creeping in…

  17. R.A. Dickey says the Yankees were stalling yesterday

    Apr 29, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey looks towards the New York Yankees dugout after Yankees Lyle Overbay hit a go ahead two-run home run during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Yesterday R.A. Dickey gave up a homer to Lyle Overbay in the seventh inning. The next batter, Eduardo Nunez, came up to bat, but before he did he called time, had the trainer come out and help him get something out of his eye.  At least that’s what appeared to happen. Dickey says it was…

  18. Anibal Sanchez had himself a ballgame

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:48 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Detroit Tigers

    With all due respect to Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann, the author of a one-hit shutout against the Cincinnati Reds, Anibal Sanchez was tonight’s best pitcher. The right-hander, who signed a five-year, $80 million contract with the Tigers back in December, shut out the Braves with a franchise record 17 strikeouts over eight innings. The Braves…

  19. Yankees’ Ivan Nova, Francisco Cervelli exit with injuries

    Apr 26, 2013, 8:08 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    At this rate, the Yankees might run out of players. Two more players are headed to the infirmary as pitcher Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli both exited tonight’s game against the Blue Jays with injuries. Cervelli hurt his hand on a foul ball from Jays batter Rajai Davis in the first inning, per ESPN’s…

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    Guys, you’re not gonna believe this, but Josh Johnson is hurt: More bad news for #bluejays. Aaron Laffey will start tonight in place of Josh Johnson, who has right triceps tightness. — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) April 26, 2013   Nothing new for Johnson, of course. When he’s healthy he can be dominant, but since becoming…

    Apr 25, 2013, 6:54 AM EDT

    New York Mets' Valdespin celebrates after hitting grand-slam walk-off home run off Los Angeles Dodgers' Wall in MLB game in New York

    Mets 7, Dodgers 3: Jordany Valdespin with a walkoff grand slam. See, good things happen when he doesn’t try to bunt. Reds 1, Cubs 0: Mat Latos tossed seven shutout innings and Broxton and Chapman finished it off. Tough luck for Jeff Samardzija who struck out eight in six innings, but he’s gonna have to get used…

  22. Orioles lose extra-inning game for the first time in a year

    Apr 24, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v Baltimore Orioles

    Baltimore had won 17 straight extra-inning games dating back to April 11, 2012, but that streak came to an end this afternoon against Toronto. Orioles closer Jim Johnson, who’d been such a huge part of all their late- and extra-inning success, walked Maicer Izturis with the bases loaded to force in the go-ahead run in…

  25. Travis Hafner stole a base and tried to bunt for a hit

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Travis Hafner

    Not only is Travis Hafner hitting .319 with a 1.120 OPS for the Yankees, he’s turned back to the clock to when he was a bunting, base-stealing machine. Well, actually he’s never been either of those things. Until yesterday, that is. Hafner stole second base without a throw, which was his first steal since 2010…
