Leafs Media Rumours / Re: John Tavares a Leaf in 2018?
« on: Yesterday at 06:43:31 PM »
If money is not the issue for Tavares, but rather,  winning a championship and finishing his career a winner, then he would give  serious consideration to a potential contender on the cusp of greatness such as the Leafs.

Now with Lamoriello and Trotz at the Islanders helm, and promising to build a success on the Island, it may just be enticing for Tavares to want to be a part of that, stay put, put down some roots, and enjoy the rest of his hockey years there.

I'm only hedging my bets that Johnny T. signing with the Leafs is 50/50 at best. A part of me wants to say it's sure fire, but hindsight doesn't jibe with it.

The Jays Osuna suspended 75 games by MLB.  The suspension comes without pay.

Osuna's lawyer stated that he (Osuan) will plead not guilty at his next court date slated for July 9th.

The Jays placed starting pitcher Jaime Garcia on the DL with shoulder inflammation.
Starter Aaron Sanchez also placed on the DL due to index finger bruise.

Blue Jays beat the Angels 4-1 Saturday on Steve Pearce's three-run homer in the ninth.  Teoscar Hernandez hit a solo shot earlier in the game.

Jays starter Marcus Stroman pitched for a solid five innings allowing six hits.  It was Stroman's first game since coming off the DL with shoulder problems.  He had been absent on the mound since May 11.

Reliever Seunghwan Oh got the win and Tepera the save.

So far, the cream of the crop out of all of these picks seems to be Sandin.

Sounds like the latter picks are the 'leftovers.'    :o

I may not speak for all in the same way not everyone agrees with your supposed disappointment.

Which is why I present my opinions as being representative of only my own opinion and raise them for discussion on a message board where other people are free to disagree if they so choose and engage in considered discussion.

It's what people who aren't busy plagiarizing other people's game summaries sometimes do here.

Plagiarizing??    Whatever happened to referring to something for information for a summary, etc.?   From various sources, gathering all the neccesary information and placing everything gathered -- details, etc., - in writing a short summary.

BTW Have you read my book review of "Kitchen  Confidential" ?  (No one wrote that for me nor did I copy anyone else, in case you don't know).

P.S.  You're free to discuss matters as you wish, but just don't go thinking that your sarcastic responses will  be freely welcomed.

Leafs fans trust Dubas knows what he's doing.

I'm pretty sure nobody decided that you speak for Leafs fans.

Or, if they did, then go Red Wings.

I may not speak for all in the same way not everyone agrees with your supposed disappointment.

Leafs fans trust Dubas knows what he's doing.  Sure there were others and Dubas could have chosen differently, but then we all know what fast-skating, puck-moving Swedish d-men can do.

In fact...

Smart pick for the Leafs, not surprising to see Dubas trade down again.
Pretty exciting day for Rasmus...

One of the 'children in cages'  photos  was verified to be from 2014

Obama is evil!

No, Obama is not evil (unless you ask Trump).

These articles explain it best:

Sounds like some grand CIA experiment on these kids a.k.a. guinea pigs.

Absolutely sickening in every way.

Starting Pitchers:
Thursday June 21  10pm
Aaron Sanchez RH (Blue Jays)  3-5  4.35  ERA  vs Tyler Skaggs LH (Angels)  6-4  2.81 ERA

Friday June 22  10pm
Marco Estrada RH (Blue Jays) 4-6  4.66  ERA  vs  John Lamb RH (Angels)  0-0  3.60  ERA

Saturday June 23  8pm
Marcus Stroman  RH (Blue Jay)  0-5  7.71 ERA  vs  Andrew Heaney LH (Angels)  3-5  3.64 ERA

Sunday June 24  4pm
Jaime Garcia LH (Blur Jays)  2-6  6.16  ERA  vs  Jaime Barria RH (Angels)  5-3  3.57  ERA

All games on SN & SN590 radio.


The Toronto Blue Jays (34-39) come to Angel Stadium for a four-game stint against the Los Angeles Angels (39-35).

The Angels, with thirteen players on the DL,  are 10.0GBL Houston Astros in the A.L.West, and 7 GB the second WC spot.

The Angels despite the injuries still have a formidable power hitter in Mike Trout.  Trout leads the league in virtually every category particularly in OPS , runs (60),  OBP (.458), and  WAR (6.3).
Los Angeles' other sensation is young  prospect  Shohei Ohtani.  Strike him off the lineup for now and on the DL with a grade 2 collateral elbow ligament strain.

The  Blue Jays are coming off a split of their most recent interleague homestand set versus the Braves. 
Jays starter Marcus Stroman is set to return after being on the DL since May 11 with shoulder fatigue.

Beautiful tribute.  That last photo makes it tough to swallow...

Maybe there's some hope, but he wants his wall...

So kidnapping children and holding them for ransom.

It's obviously Trump's card here.  In fact, no one doubts that he deliberately fostered this crisis in return for the funding of the wall he so desperately wants built.
