Toronto Blue Jays: Rough week leaves them in last

The Toronto Blue Jays have lost 6 of their 7 games this past week. They are now sitting in the last place, 5 games back in the American League East Division, which is not too bad of a deficit considering how poorly they have performed recently. The Blue Jays found a different way to lose every night last week, whether it was a bullpen collapse, a less than stellar performance from...

R.A. Dickey – What Has Been the Difference?

Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey has had a couple of firsts in the past week he likely didn’t think he would have experienced at the outset of the season.  For starters, he went winless in April, the first time that has happened to him since he became a full-time starter in 2010.  Secondly, he went 8 solid innings against the Yankees last night but didn’t strike...

Yankees game 26 preview (5/4/15)

Fresh off their sweet sweep of the Sox, Chase Whitley (1-0, 1.80 ERA) gets the ball for his second start of the year against R.A. Dickey (0-3, 5.23 ERA) in Toronto. Whitley will stay in the rotation for Masahiro Tanaka since he landed on the DL. He definitely earned another nod after giving up just one run on six hits through five against the Rays. Dickey went seven innings in...

Jerry Remy: No Way To Prepare For R.A. Dickey, Knuckleball Pitchers (Video)

R.A. Dickey will take the mound Wednesday night against a team he experienced a heck of a lot of success against last season. The Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer has struggled in his four starts in 2015, going 0-2 with a 5.25 ERA, but it was a different story every time he faced the Boston Red Sox last year. The 2012 National League Cy Young award winner went 4-0 with a stellar...

The Latest R.A. Dickey Experiment

R.A. Dickey‘s entire career has, essentially, been one giant experiment. You know the story by now. Dickey was drafted by the Texas Rangers back in 1996, and took a signing bonus for nearly $800,000 less than what was originally offered after team doctors discovered he just didn’t even have an ulnar collateral ligament in his […]

The Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer’s autobiography Wherever I Wind Up is set to be turned into a movie.  And, now, I know what you’re thinking, isn’t that basically what the documentary “Knuckleball” was?
