LOL, where are the Leafs this season?

Also remember baseball is a 162 game season just because a team starts off 2-5 means nothing in the long run. Oh yeah that's right look at the Leafs this year and the SF Giants last year in the MLB.

Point taken that the Jays haven't proven anything but going back to the original comment on AA they were ballsy moves and clear upgrades. Better than sitting with a thumb up your ass and pissing away gravy contracts.

Yeah and only 155 games to turn it around.

Man when does the CFL start again so we can all complain how dissapointing the Eskimos are?

About to be 2-6.

It's a long season but when you're getting close to flirting with a 2-8 or hell, a 2-10 record it becomes very difficult to turn the tide. Most of the hitters on the team are hitting below .100. I've never seen anything quite like that almost 10 games into a season.

Well, it's normal for some players to be below the Mendoza Line early on but 80 percent of the batting order? Yikes.

I don't know, you could be right but personally i can't worry too much (if at all) about any struggles they're having this early on into the year. It's not even mid April. The one guy I am worried about though I admit is RADickey. I swear I saw it coming. Knuckleballers are so hit/miss year to year...

Gutsy win for the Blue Jays. Arencibia is certainly swinging the bat well. Next step: Scoring first in a game.

Blue Jays got destroyed again. 11-1. Josh Johnson gave up 6 runs and couldn't get out of the 1st inning.

Not sure if any of you are golf fans
I certainly wouldn't call myself a golf fan not even close
But the masters did start today and are going on until Sunday
Who knows maybe ill watch a bit this weekend
Anyway,
@JasonGregor: 14-year-old Tianlang Guan shoots +1 in first round of the #Masters. Incredible. I could barely hit the fairway at 14, or now for that matter

That's pretty impressive a 14 year old at the masters, I understand he's not winning or anything but still pretty cool

Typical luck for a team that I cheer for. The Blue Jays are playing one of their best games of the year and now one of their best players gets hurt on a nothing play. Reyes looks like he's going to be gone for a while.

AA says best case scenario on Reyes probably a month, worst case 3 months, but will know more tomorrow. #Bluejays

Anyone go see the movie 42 last night? I was real disappointed by it. I May have just had too high of expectations going into it i guess.

No panic here. Unless the rest drop like flies, this is a long season.

Even if they had a bad start, they are only 1.5 games back in the division.

Kind of odd for people talk about choking 10-11 games into the season. haha

I'm pulling for Adam Scott, I always like seeing somebody who's never won over a repeat take it.

Good for Adam Scott winning his first major and the first time an Australian wins the Masters
The other guy was so so close, ball stopped just short of the hole

I am by no means a golf fan i learned a bit about the game this weekend, its really not as bad/boring as people make it seem

There was a bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon today. Two explosions, hearing reports of more devices being found along the route.

Graphic photos in link. Lots of blood, looks like someone may have lost their leg in one picture.
