Jose Bautista's batflip was baseball at its absolute best

By Mike Bates

PUBLISHED: Oct 15, 2015, 11:17 am EDT

Baseball is stronger when we embrace the game's diversity and the emotion it generates. Who does baseball belong to? I know it doesn't belong to me. I'm pretty sure it doesn't belong to you. It doesn't belong to Sam Dyson or Cole Hamels or Jose Bautista or Alexander frigging Cartwright....

By Mike Bates

PUBLISHED: Jul 7, 2015, 12:59 pm EDT

The Blue Jays might secretly be the best team in the American League. They need to shore up their pitching, though, to start acting like it. I'm confident enough to admit that I don't understand the Toronto Blue Jays, a team of contradictions. Back in May, I suggested that the...

By Mike Bates

PUBLISHED: May 26, 2015, 9:01 am EDT

Mired in last place in the AL East, it might be time for the Blue Jays to give up on their aging core and their young general manager. Yesterday, the Blue Jays got Jose Reyes back from a cracked rib that had kept him on the disabled list for almost...
