Where do Stroman and Sanchez fit in Toronto’s long-term plans?

It wasn’t that long ago when Aaron Sanchez was a part of a three-headed pitching monster in Lansing, as Sanchez, Nicolino, and Syndergaard dominated Low-A ball in the Midwest League back in 2012. And while the three-headed monster was making noise in Michigan’s capital like some 2K12 ‘Ho Hey’ folk rock band, Marcus Stroman, who…

Dreaming of capitalizing on a Mariners fire sale

It’s fun to stare off into nowhere land and dream about being somewhere else. Maybe somewhere tropical, or somewhere that’s just far enough away from it all. It’s fun not to think about work and what has to be done. It’s fun to do anything other than some mundane office task, or whatever kind of…

There needs to be a new statue outside of the Dome

A lot of time has passed since April 7th, 1977, when Anne Murray sang the national anthem on that snowy Thursday afternoon.

It’s here we go dollar dollar bill time, and Scotty needs to make the cash-rules-everything-around…

Blue Jays fire two coaches

I was at a local watering hole when news broke that the Jays tossed Brook Jacoby and Tim Leiper into the can, AND it’s not exactly shocking stuff. Now, some of you are probably out and about doing your weekend things and have already seen the news on your smart-whatevers. Rumours started to circulate around…

It isn’t going to be an exciting winter

It’s kind of crazy how fast this whole time thing carries us on its conveyer belt to wherever we’re all going. The baseball season is officially over and it’s November already. Soon Torontonians will be trading in their Pumpkin Spiced Lattes for Gingerbread Chocolate Mochas. Joy to the world. It’s only a matter of time…
