Blue Jays GM: John Gibbons is ‘absolutely part of the solution’

At 22-25 and in last place in the American League East, the Toronto Blue Jays are one of baseball’s most disappointing teams.

Russell Martin Ain’t Right

News broke earlier that the Pirates agreed to a three-year contract extension with Francisco Cervelli. It’s an easy enough story to analyze in isolation, but to really add depth, you can compare and contrast Cervelli and Russell Martin, who was Cervelli’s predecessor.
