The Toronto Blue Jays do not support discrimination of any kind nor condone the message displayed by Yunel Escobar during Saturday’s game. The club takes this situation seriously and is investigating the matter.
Alex Anthopoulos, Sr. VP Baseball Operations and General Manager will be available to the media tomorrow afternoon at Yankee Stadium and we expect him to be joined by Yunel Escobar, Manager John Farrell and Coach Luis Rivera. Details and location for the media availability will be announced tomorrow.



Good for James Greenhalgh, a season ticket holder who noticed this and posted his photo.

I don't know how the season will play out for the Tigers as a team, but I do know one thing: Miguel Cabrera is the MVP.

Really hope Max is OK -- reports don't sound too promising right now. Avila and Berry both injured too.

The bats are fully alive tonight at least. The Tigers need wins and a lot of them the rest of the way plus some help as well.

The Tigers should probably try and get some guys that play defense going forward. This is just beyond sorry.

MLB's handling of the Cabrera case is another embarrassment for baseball. A stance could have been taken, a statement could have been made. Uncle Bud took the easy way out.

Miggy now tied for the Triple Crown in the HR category with number 42.

Seriously, I love watching Mike Trout play, but this shouldn't even be a discussion anymore.

It's just the LA hype that's keeping him in it.

Baltimore is 16-2 in extra-inning games, with 16 in a row.

Tigers can pick up some ground if they can win 3/4 against Min/KC. Chicago is struggling right now, just haven't been able to take advantage of that all season long.

And the Tigers prove once again they probably don't deserve the division. Get handed a gift from the Angels sweeping the Sox and the Tigers, as usual, disappoint and lose both games today against the powerhouse Minnesota Twins. 5-9 can't hit at all, the defense is atrocious and Valverde can't pitch a clean inning ever. The Twins are the worst pitching team in terms of ERA in the AL and the Tigers scored five runs combined in two games.

The White Sox have six left against the Indians. The Tigers have seven against the Royals (playing very well lately) and three more with the Twins, who also have given them fits. I think the Tigers have missed their opportunity to take this pathetic division. You can't lose twice at home to Minnesota with a chance to tie or move into first place.

I am more perplexed by how poorly this team is constructed. Built for offense/power and they can't score runs consistently outside of the first four guys in the order. If you are going to completely ignore defense, then you better be able to win games by overcoming not being able to field the ball. Poor defense and having no speed/power to score runs is a losing combination even with quality starting pitching.

The AL Central is quite easily the worst division in sports.

The quality level of umpiring continues in a downward spiral.

JV to the rescue. A win and he saves the bullpen after yesterday.

Of course Dunn hits a 3-run homer on a 0-2 pitch with 2 outs.

Ugh. What an absolutely horrible pitch too by Pestano. Dunn strikes out more than anyone and he grooves an 0-2 pitch there.

Indians are up 4-2 this afternoon. Maybe they can actually hang on this time.

No surprise, ESPN only hires cheap college level statistical analysts.

I think the Tigers will finally pull away with the Division lead. The Sox don't have what it takes coming down the stretch. Bring on the Yanks in the DS.

Anibal with a spectacular outing. Makes me feel a little better about losing Turner and Brantly when Sanchez pitches like that in a huge game.

The Tigers have a lot of flaws, but I just feel like if they can get into the playoffs, the starting rotation makes them quite dangerous. Oh and we have Miggy.
