But What Do I Know? … Edwin Encarnacion, Roberto Alomar, J.P. Ricciardi

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories (Follow me on Twitter: @kevinglewsports):  I still feel that Blue Jays fans are too harsh on Edwin Encarnacion, but I have to admit they are very clever. With his two errors at first base in Wednesday’s game, witty Jays supporters have taken toContinue reading “But What Do I Know? … Edwin Encarnacion, Roberto Alomar, J.P. Ricciardi”

But What Do I Know? … Russell Martin, Adam Lind, R.J. Swindle

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  Earlier this month, I mentioned that the good thing about Juan Rivera is that he hits like Geroge Bell.

But What Do I Know? … Jose Bautista, Matt Stairs, Rich Harden

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  I’m a big fan of Toronto Star hockey writer Damien Cox. He’s one of the best hockey writers in the business, but for him to speculate in a blog entry that Jose Bautista might be using steroids is irresponsible journalism. It taints Bautista’sContinue reading “But What Do I Know? … Jose Bautista, Matt Stairs, Rich Harden”

But What Do I Know? … Scott Downs, David Purcey, Andre Dawson, Jose Bautista

My weekly opinions, observations and rants about some Canadian baseball stories:  If Scott Downs is dealt as he’s expected to be, that means David Purcey becomes the Jays’ go-to southpaw out of the pen. If this is the case, Cito Gaston will have to take the kid gloves off the former first rounder. Sure,Continue reading “But What Do I Know? … Scott Downs, David Purcey, Andre Dawson, Jose Bautista”
