Week in Review: Toronto Blue Jays (3rd in AL East) Record: 3-4 (Week/total) Who's Hot: Maicer Izturis (.500), Melky Cabrera (.323), Adam Lind (.308) Who's Cold: Colby Rasmus (.087), Brett Lawrie (.120), Edwin Encarnacion (.179) Pitching Rundown R.A. Dickey stats this week: 1-1, 4.63 ERA, 10 SO, 7 BB 1.46 WHIP Looked lost in his first start - his knuckleball was frankly terrible all day and as he only went 5 innings, giving up 5 hits, 6 walks, and 6 runs in that span - the Jays lost 9-2. However, R.A. bounced back in outstanding fashion against the Yankees, striking out 6 and only walking one in 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball as he earned his first win in against the Yankees, 4-0 was the final score. Drew Hutchison stats this week: 1-1, 6.23 ERA, 10 SO, 6 BB 1.73 WHIP Very good in his first start in almost two years, surrendering 3 hits and 3 walks, and 0 runs in 5 1/3 innings, which was enough to get the win in a 4-2 game. Drew's second start was abysmal as he gave up 6 runs while compiling 3 walks in just ...

Hutchinson, you'll pitch like a big leaguer, and you too Happ. Dustin McGowan, you too. Catcher guy, Dioner Navarro, you're gonna catch the knuckleball and also strike out way less than Arencibia. Adam Lind, you're gonna get 25 dingers, and Ryan Goines, you'll be a big league second bagger. Reyes, you're gonna be healthy all year and have a great batting average and defence and base running. Brett Lawrie, you'll continue to kick butt at third, and you'll raise those batting numbers, and you'll also be less of a tool.

The Miami Marlins finalized their deal with 1B/OF Garrett Jones and are now shopping Logan Morrison as was hinted at this past weekend. The Pirates look to be in Morrison due to James Loney's asking price being too high at 3yrs/$30MM. Adam Lind is another name being bantered about.

Red Sox clinch AL East title, beat Blue Jays 6-3 By JIMMY GOLEN / AP Sports Writer / September 20, 2013 BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox clinched the AL East title on Friday night, getting seven strong innings from Jon Lester to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 and eliminate Tampa Bay from the division race. One night after securing their first playoff appearance since 2009, the Red Sox added their first division title since ‘07. Boston entered the night with a magic number of one — meaning the next Red Sox win or Rays loss would clinch the division. Lester (15-8) allowed one run on five hits and two walks, striking out eight to win for the seventh time in nine decisions. It was his 100th career victory. Toronto pinch-hitter Adam Lind hit a two-run homer off Junichi Tazawa in the eighth to make it 5-3 before Koji Uehara got five outs for his 20th save. With the crowd standing for most of the final inning, he struck out Brett Lawrie to end the game and the Red Sox poured out of the dugout and bullpen. ...
Yanks' playoff hopes take another hit with 6 - Staggered by the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre, the Yankees quietly acknowledged the daunting task of making a playoff run with nine games to go and several clubs to climb. "It's pretty desperate - we'll see what we're made of," Mark Reynolds said after the last-place Blue Jays' 6-2 victory Thursday night had completed a losing, 10-game road trip for the Yankees. But there was still a measure of resolve left, and a six-game homestand to test that resolve beginning tonight. The Yankees (80-73) slipped to 3½ games behind in the chase for the final AL wild card. "We've got to run the table [and] have a good homestand and go into Houston with a chance," Reynolds said of the Yanks' final three series against the Giants, Rays and Astros. "You can ask anyone in here, we're not giving up." They had just absorbed a sledgehammer, when Adam Lind's towering, three-run homer off Joba Chamberlain gave Toronto a five-run lead in the seventh - an edge that seemed larger given ...
