    The first-place Toronto Blue Jays? We're coming up on finishing the first third of the season, and it's a fun thing to think about: The first-place Blue Jays, for real. But how did they get there? It's easy to put down where they are to a couple o...

  3. Sizing up the best World Series Web Gems

    Christina Kahrl

    There's something ironic about talking about some of the best plays in World Series history when the key feature of the first two games of this year's Fall Classic have been the defensive miscues that decided the outcome. But as quickly as we've judg...

  4. Lean, mean Rays should beat the Yankees

    Christina Kahrl

    So, they were back, sort of. You might already be tired of this "underdog Yankees" thing, but to their credit after blowing out the Toronto Blue Jays last week, the Bombers had improved their fortunes: They elevated themselves all the way up to tail-...

  5. Comeback trio are post-break HR leaders

    Christina Kahrl

    Who has the most home runs since the All-Star break? After Saturday night's action, three guys were tied with seven apiece: Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays, Jayson Werth of the Nationals and Justin Morneau of the Twins. In other words, neither of the ...

  6. Justin Verlander's rebound should inspire

    Christina Kahrl

    Taking the bump in Toronto on Thursday for the first time since his second career no-hitter, in May 2011, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander was dealing. Dealing from the mound, certainly, but also dealing with expectations that might handic...

  7. Sizzling Blue Jays won't just streak and fade

    Christina Kahrl

    Now that the Blue Jays have rattled off a 10-game win streak, we're almost back to what I think we all expected in the American League East when the season started: a five-team race where nobody -- nobody -- should be considered the automatic...

  8. Forget-me-nots for the missing men of 2012

    Christina Kahrl

    Say you're a team that has a problem, like losing an everyday player to free agency. Market solutions tend to be expensive, whether in cash spent or prospects dealt. But some teams already have potential solutions for their seeming offseason needs on...

  9. Bringing back the Blue Jays superteams?

    Christina Kahrl

    Well, just yesterday I was suggesting teams need to take their cue from surprise contenders like the Athletics, Nationals and Orioles and go for it, and little more than a day later, the Blue Jays have done that and more. With their potential blockbu...

  10. Third time's no charm for Blue Jays

    Christina Kahrl

    A little more than a week ago, things looked so very different for the Toronto Blue Jays. Brandon Morrow had just delivered a complete-game shutout of the White Sox in the Cell, and the Jays were 30-26. In the early going, they were a reasonable cand...

  11. Clearing the Bases: Lobs, Lawrie and losses

    Christina Kahrl

    First: You know first, it's the base you're supposed to go to initially, to get on base. Or to throw to when the opposition obligingly gives you an out on a sac bunt. It's also sometimes a bit of a tricky target, as the Cubs' Geovany Soto found out i...

  12. Jack Morris' big gain and bigger problems

    Christina Kahrl

    The subject of Jack Morris and the Hall of Fame seems to be the bright burning flame before the fireworks for Barry Larkin have finished going off. Morris' clock may have been running out, but after he reached 66.7 percent of the vote in the 13th yea...

  13. Arbitration the choice for three free agents

    Christina Kahrl

    With Wednesday night's deadline for free-agent players to accept arbitration offers from their teams, it's interesting to see that three accepted: Designated hitter David Ortiz with the Red Sox (via the story Gordon Edes broke for ESPNBoston.com), re...

  14. AL East: Three fixes for each team

    Christina Kahrl

    For all the talk of the balance of power tilting towards the AL East, baseball's power division hasn't won a pennant in two years, and has as many world titles collectively as the St. Louis Cardinals over the last six. With the eventual one-game play...
