Blue Jays get best of both worlds with focus on playoffs, future potential intact
Jeff Blair
Whether or not the Blue Jays are measurably better this morning will be determined.

As North American sports eye return, don't forget athletes are human, too
Jeff Blair
I have an apology. Until last week, I’d forgotten that professional athletes are human, or at least was willing to overlook it in my haste to see sports back, writes Jeff Blair.
