Blue Jays have little to gain from forcing Aaron Sanchez trade now
Jeff Blair
The notion that the Toronto Blue Jays should simply wash their hands of struggling Aaron Sanchez and accept in return any old half-warm body or, worse, somebody else’s detritus is simply foolish.
Raptors didn't lose in free agency, but Kawhi Leonard certainly won

Montreal idea sets stage for Rays' eventual departure from Tampa
Jeff Blair
The fact it’s Montreal first out of the gate for an MLB team has Jeff Blair thinking baseball will return to Quebec on a full-time basis maybe faster than originally thought.

Wounded Warriors piling up, but they just bought Durant more time
Jeff Blair
