Here, we have the Canadian firecracker stretched out in a nonchalant prone position as he effortlessly snags line drives in the cage. Pure Lawrie. Now anytime he makes a mistake on the field, everyone will turn towards this video to...

Brett Lawrie and Dana Long on Pre-Valentine’s Day Shooting Range Date

It’s Valentine’s Day Eve and men across the nation are kicking themselves for not pulling the trigger on that Vermont Teddy Bear they saw on TV weeks ago. Poor form, fellas. Poor form. If you’re one of those guys, maybe you need take some notes from our favorite base-brah, Brett Lawrie. While he hasn’t totally figured out the professional baseball thing (still has potential...

A’s send young Blue Jays fan care package after acquiring Brett Lawrie (pics)

To say that Amelia, a 6-year-old Toronto Blue Jays fan, has enjoyed something of a baseball-related windfall of goodwill over the holidays would be an understatement. Amelia became something of an Internet sensation after a video went viral that documented her devastation upon learning that Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie, her favorite player on...Read More The post A’s send...

Player Profile #168: Brett Lawrie | 2B/3B | OAK

Full disclosure: Brett Lawrie is not our 168th-ranked player. He actually belongs around 190. He’s out lowest-ranked 2B or 3B in the top 200 and got a little lost in the shuffle, but rest assured that Lawrie has the potential to jump the 20 spots to 168, and we didn’t want to disrupt the countdown for such a small discrepancy (what amounts to maybe two rounds late in a draft...

Oakland A’s: Recapping the A’s offseason trades so far

The Oakland A’s were very active during this year’s winter meetings. However, many are not sure if those trades will actually benefit the Oakland A’s for 2015.

Brett Lawrie Makes Little Girl’s Day After Being Traded

New Oakland Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie played parts of four seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays before being sent out west for Josh Donaldson the day after Thanksgiving.

Brett Lawrie visits girl who was devastated when he got traded

YouTube videos of kids crying over sports are really nothing new, so when a Toronto Blue Jays fan posted one of his inconsolable 6-year-old daughter after Brett Lawrie was traded, most people probably watched it and moved on. Not Brett Lawrie, though. The third baseman, who was shipped to the Oakland Athletics for Josh Donaldson, saw the viral video and took notice. So on Friday...

Brett Lawrie: Blue Jays’ Turf ‘Has A Lot Do’ With Recent Injuries
