Blue Jays Outfield: Time for A Bounce Back

Details By Chris Cwik

Published: Feb 26, 2014, 9:15 am EST

It was a mixed year for the Toronto Blue Jays outfield. Jose Bautista produced when healthy, but his season was cut short by a hip injury. Melky Cabrera played in just 88 games due to injuries and failed to live up to expectations. Colby Rasmus actually produced strong numbers despite a crazy-high strikeout rate. All […]

Preaching Patience with R.A. Dickey

Details By Chris Cwik

Published: Apr 8, 2013, 9:15 am EDT

Melky Goes North

Details By Chris Cwik

Published: Nov 19, 2012, 9:18 am EST

Time For Henderson Alvarez To Shine

Details By Chris Cwik

Published: Nov 14, 2012, 9:15 am EST

Perhaps no player will benefit more from the Toronto-Miami mega-trade than Henderson Alvarez. Opinions are definitely mixed on the 22-year-old starter. Alvarez has shown impressive stuff, and an ability to pound the strike zone, but his lack of strikeouts have become a major issue. His 9.8 K% was the worst among qualified starters. But things [...]

Details By Chris Cwik

Published: Mar 27, 2012, 9:00 am EDT

With his new deal, McGowan will still make $600,000 this season before receiving $1.5 million in 2013 and an additional $1.5 [...]
