Blue Jays stun Cardinals in crazy series opener: Griffin

ST. LOUIS—So this is how the Jays play when they’re sleep-deprived. Russ Martin starts at third base. Chris Coghlan creates a piece of baseball lore for himself. Marcus Stroman doubles and scores the winning run in the 11th and the Jays win 6-5. With one out in the 11th inning, Stroman pinch-hit for Jason Grilli, […]

Jays’ Aaron Sanchez optimistic after two days of throwing

ANAHEIM, CALIF.—Still feeling the effects of a blistered middle finger on his right hand, Aaron Sanchez was less than a two-hour drive from his Barstow home, but he didn’t have time to visit this trip. He is too busy trying to get back on the mound to make another start in a Blue Jays game, […]

Even the great ones can be humbled in NHL playoff debuts

A generational player has big expectations to meet, especially once the post-season rolls around. Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews are widely considered the game’s next generational talents and will get their first taste of the NHL playoffs when the post-season gets underway Wednesday.

At about this point last year Leo Komarov had his bags packed and plane ticket home to Finland almost ready to go, his Toronto Maple Leafs wrapping up a 30th-place season.
