But What Do I Know? . . . John Axford, George Kottaras, Henderson Alvarez

My weekly look at some Canadian baseball stories: – After a rough start to the season, Port Dover, Ont., native John Axford has temporarily lost his job as the Cleveland Indians’ closer. Indians manager Terry Francona informed Axford of the move prior to Saturday’s game. The Tribe skipper says the Canadian right-hander, who has postedContinue reading “But What Do I Know? . . .

But What Do I Know? … Ryan Dempster, Corey Patterson, Gary Carter

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories (Please follow me on Twitter: @kevinglewsports):  I’m old enough to remember George Bell patrolling the outfield for the Jays, and circus music played in my head when the ball was hit to Fred Lewis last season, but those two seem like Gold GloveContinue reading “But What Do I Know? … Ryan Dempster, Corey Patterson, Gary Carter”

But What Do I Know? … Kyle Drabek, Yunel Escobar, Ryan Dempster

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  I can’t wait to watch the Blue Jays No. 1 pitching prospect and their future ace, Kyle Drabek, make his big league debut on Wednesday night.

But What Do I Know? … Adam Lind, Fred Lewis, Roberto Alomar, Travis Snider

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  Two words that Adam Lind has grown to dread are high fastball. He just can’t seem to lay off the high heat. I remember reading a story of how Branch Rickey sent a young Duke Snider to the minors and made him standContinue reading “But What Do I Know? … Adam Lind, Fred Lewis, Roberto Alomar, Travis Snider”

But What Do I Know? … A-Rod, Travis Snider, Brian Tallet, Montreal Expos

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  Every time A-Rod plays against the Jays, I can’t help but think that he – with the aid of performance enhancing drugs – robbed Carlos Delgado of the 2003 American League MVP Award. In what I consider to be the best individual seasonContinue reading “But What Do I Know? … A-Rod, Travis Snider, Brian Tallet, Montreal Expos”

But What Do I Know? … Fred Lewis, Alex Gonzalez, Jose Canseco

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  In batting stance only, Jays outfielder Fred Lewis bears a striking resemblance to Devon White. Unfortunately, he leads the league in one of its more dubious, unofficial categories: brain cramps. So far, Lewis has done enough at the plate to offset his mentalContinue reading “But What Do I Know? … Fred Lewis, Alex Gonzalez, Jose Canseco”
