This month's edition of Toronto Life magazine features a long portrait of Alek Manoah, appraised as "The smack-talking, muscle-flexing, fastball-slinging Alek Manoah (is really a big softie) - Confessions of a superstar Blue Jay", written by Malcolm Johnston, with lots of family background etc. Nice read for the weekend.
As if anyone here needed it. Enjoy!
I'm not a huge fan of the idea, but ok.
The Blue Jays officially non-tendered Raimel Tapia, Bradley Zimmer, and Vinny Capra this afternoon.
Good to see that Nate Pearson did great in the Dominican Winter League.
Albert Belle, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Don Mattingly, Fred McGriff, Dale Murphy, Rafael Palmeiro and Curt Schilling are all on the Ballot. I'd like to think that Fred has a good chance, since they aren't voting Clemens, Schilling or Bonds in.
Sticks it in the fence
It's only part one. But it's a really nice focus on the Blue Jays great, and how he was robbed. I thought it would be of interest ;)
Grounds crew, ushers, security, warehouse... If you are considering it, you may want to read Ryan Kohls' "Working the Graveyard Shift at the Rogers Centre" in the Toronto Life magazine (see also here on BBB).
