MLB Commissioner Bud Selig gives his reason for accepting the Blue jays Blockbuster deal saying it “represents the exercise of plausible baseball judgement on the part of both Clubs.” This comment is courtesy of a tweet sent out by @ShiDavidi this afternoon. I like it and all the Jays need now is to finalize a new bench boss and it should be an entertaining summer of baseball for T.O. in 2013!
Last night I went to check out a game between the Canadians and Lumber Kings in LCHL action last night at the Peter G Murray Arena. It was a battle between to undefeated teams with identical 5-0-2 records, tied for 1st place, through 7 games to start the season. It was quite the barn burner last night as the Canadians came back from being down 3-0 to make it 3-3 with about two minutes left and then thirty seconds later went up 4-3, only to have the Lumber Kings tie it 4-4 with seven seconds left. Long story short both teams are still undefeated. For more info check out the league website
