Boston Red Sox first to reach double-digit losses

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Josh BeckettThe Boston Red Sox fell to 2-10 on the season after losing a tough game to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night. Adam Lind hit a controversial three-run home run in the first inning that was reversed after a replay, but that only resulted in a 7-6 loss instead. Bobby Jenks was hammered in the 7th inning, taking his first loss as a member of the Red Sox and becoming the seventh man on the staff with an “L” in just 12 games.

The most bizarre April game in MLB history

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Blue Jays @ Angels (Christine Cotter)Peter Bourjos scored from second on a Maicer Izturis single to right field to end what can only be described as one of the wildest April games in MLB history. The Anaheim Angels took the 6-5, 14-inning victory from the Toronto Blue Jays in a game that took five hours and three minutes to play. The lead traded hands five times before settling at 5-5 after four innings. However, nobody could fully crack the bullpens. The game featured the use of 14 total relievers (including Angels starter Dan Haren), four double plays, three outfield assists, a combined 4-for37 with runners in scoring position and 26 runners left on base.

One man’s Edwin Encarnacion trash is the same man’s treasure

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Edwin EncarnacionThere seems to be no end to Alex Anthopoulos’ creativity. The Toronto Blue Jays GM made another “right move” yesterday when he signed Edwin Encarnacion to a one-year deal. It wasn’t the right move in that Encarnacion can turn the Blue Jays’ fortunes around or that he’s some diamond in the rough that nobody has noticed until now. This, however, may have been one of those right moves that not even Anthopoulos himself saw coming.

Jays win, Halladay loses…not your typical headline

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Roy HalladayThe Blue Jays got their first taste of an opposing Roy Halladay on Wednesday when they made the short trip from Dunedin to Bright House Field in Clearwater. The Jays showed their appreciation for Halladay and his new Philly uniform by swatting balls left and right, touching up the ace starter for four runs in the first inning alone. However, Halladay was able to pick himself up in the show why he’s one of the best by striking out three batters in the second.

AL Silver Sluggers announced with few surprises

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Editorial, Kudos, MLB,

DescriptionThe American League Silver Slugger Award winners were announced recently, and six of the nine selections came out of the East, which further goes to show just how powerful – literally – this division is. The New York Yankees had repeat winners in Mark Teixeira at first-base and Derek Jeter at short. The Boston Red Sox’s Jason Bay was honored with his first, the Tampa Bay Rays’ Evan Longoria at third, and the Toronto Blue Jays each had first-timers with Aaron Hill at second and Adam Lind as the designated hitter. The rest of the league squeaked in Joe Mauer, catcher for the Minnesota Twins with his third, and Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners and Torii Hunter from the Los Angeles Angels in outfield, with their third and first, respectively.
