Jose Bautista and Mark Teixeira heating up in the home run race

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Jose BautistaThe home run race has been tight all season long, and right now, the Toronto Blue Jays' Jose Bautista clings to a one-homer lead over Mark Teixeira of the New York Yankees. Bautista is the reigning home run king, and he and Teixeira have a comfortable lead over the rest of the pack in baseball. Bautista has had trouble getting the ball out of the park lately, while Teixeira has been hitting them with ease, so it’s not unrealistic to think we may soon have a new leader soon. If Teixeira can hold the lead for longer than a day, he’ll be the first person to do that to Bautista in over a year.

Jose Bautista has more than home run swing

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

Jose BautistaJose Bautista, the reigning Major League home run king, temporarily took the lead in long balls on Saturday afternoon; blasting two line drives over the left field wall off of Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price to bring his total to seven. Neither were majestic shots Toronto Blue Jays fans have come to love in their slugging right fielder, nor were they enough to get a win for the team, but as far as personal accomplishments go, Bautista is certainly making the most of his prime baseball years.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Jose BautistaIf you are a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays, you probably found a thing or two to enjoy about their home opener against the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. While the highlight package for the game could take up an entire segment of SportsCenter, one of the standout events of the evening was 2010 Home Run King Jose Bautista’s fifth inning blast off Carl Pavano to pick up right where he left off last season.

Miguel Cabrera’s season is done with ankle sprain

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Injuries, MLB,

Miguel CabreraMiguel Cabrera’s season came to an early end when he was scratched from Wednesday’s game with a sprained ankle. That freezes his 2010 statistics where they are at 150 games played, 38 home runs, 126 RBI, a .328 average, a 1.042 on-base plus slugging percentage, 111 runs scored and 180 hits. His stats have him right in the middle of the conversation about who will be this year’s American League Most Valuable Player, but one fact hurts him more than the rest.

Ichiro makes MLB history and Jose Bautista makes Blue Jays history

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Felix HernandezIn Thursday’s historic game at Rogers Centre in Toronto, many fantastic accomplishments were achieved. Jose Bautista hit his 50th home run of the season, becoming just the 26th player ever to do so, as well as the first Blue Jay. Ichiro Suzuki rapped two hits, including a single to center field that was his 200th of the season, marking 10 straight years of 200-hits for Ichiro; the first time that’s ever been done by an MLB player. However, some achievements will fly under the radar: the pitching performances.

Cabrera’s MVP season falling short

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Miguel CabreraMiguel Cabrera is having a heck of a season. The Detroit first baseman has been spoken of as the potential first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to win the MLB hitting Triple Crown, but a lack of power in recent weeks as well as some bad luck has stalled his efforts, if not completely derailed them. Cabrera will need to put together one of the best months in baseball history if he wants to earn the honor so many seemed to think he could achieve.

Jose Bautista denies steroid allegations

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors,

Jose BautistaDamien Cox of the Toronto Star pointed out this past weekend that Jose Bautista, the major league home run leader, may be having such a dream season due to – yup, you guessed it – performance enhancing drugs. He did not state whether he knew for a fact that Bautista was juicing, just merely that we, as fans, have an obligation to question such a dramatic increase in performance thanks to what we’ve witnessed in the last 20 years of Major League Baseball.

Why trading Jose Bautista is a bad idea

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors, Trades,

Jose BautistaThe major league home run leader increased his total by two on Tuesday night, as he mashed a three- and two-run home run against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. Toronto’s Jose Bautista has now broken the 30-home run mark and the Jays continue to put other teams on notice that he’s available. In fact, the Jays are listening to offers for a quarter of their roster, all of whom are moveable, but in Bautista’s case, it would not be a wise decision to ship him out of the city by the end of this week.
