The development of a Jays fan

I talk about my son a lot. Like most toddlers, he plays with toys and watches shows that as an adult I can't completely understand. I start to wonder what interests he will have as he grows up. Since he was a baby, we've taken him to Jays games, dressed in his "daddy shirt" and "daddy hat", and had hot dogs and "chippies". I know much of his experience is just about having special days out with his parents, but I hope that this report and picture is the start of something the two of us will share for a lifetime.

MVP for the first half of 2013

I'm sure the management will have articles probing the first half of the season over the next few days. Since I'm bored and curious, I thought I would get a head start and poll the readership as...

Find your favorite one and explain why. I like the B for Josh Thole, because I'm pretty sure I'd get an A+++ on any curve Dr. Griffen is using.

Petition to change Suckage Award Titles

Dear Hugo, Tom and Johnny, I've noticed you don't really use the official titles of the Suckage Awards during the recaps. It's probably just as well you don't, as the names (Hinske, Batista and...

Sports Illustrated/Fangraphs Power Rankings: Royals 7th, Blue Jays 20th

Somehow I think this will be cold comfort to the Royals Review crowd. And with respect to the boys in blue, does this mean we'll end up with an even better record when Bautista, Escobar and some others hit their stride?

Shorter Griffin: Colby Rasmus trade was awful because St. Louis made the Playoffs. Lawrie, Bautista and Romero rule. AA is meh.
