  4. The Toronto Blue Jays and Scott Boras: A Scorched Earth Policy?

    James Paxton is by all accounts a great prospect. So great, in fact, that the Toronto Blue Jays plucked the Canadian lefty with the 37th pick in last year's Amateur Draft. Enter Scott Boras...

  5. The Toronto Blue Jays Are Reveling in the Quantity of Quality Starts

  8. Toronto Raptors: Less Is More For CB4

    Last night in New Orleans, the Toronto Raptors displayed a depth that's been missing from the team for years. It was refreshing to watch as the Raps slowly ground the Hornets into dust, and then as they definitively blew them away in the second half...
