Recap: Blue Jays 9, Orioles 1; Blue Jays Fly Past Orioles Into First

This weekend series against the American League East divisional rivals Baltimore Orioles has brought with it the first sense of pennant race fever to Toronto this season.

Recap: Orioles 11, Blue Jays 6; Stroman Falters on Father’s Day

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Baltimore Orioles

Recap: Blue Jays 4, Orioles 3; Unconventional Bullpen Usage Leads to Blue Jays Victory

Just as soon as the game started, it seemed as if Camden Yards was booing Jose Bautista. Frankly, I had no idea this grudge was still held by the Baltimore Orioles’ fans. For the uninitiated, the abridged version: Jose Bautista is good at baseball, and the Orioles keep giving up home runs to him and […]
