    The Toronto Blue Jays show no signs of life… again

    The Toronto Blue Jays have been terrible so far this season. They have come up short a lot and have not reached their potential at all. Their supposed ace, Aaron Sanchez, has gone on the DL three times with the same injury, and the hitters have just not produced. Jose Bautista has been pretty good over the past two weeks or so, but other than that no one is getting on base or getting the big hit. They currently sit 7.5 games off of first place with a 23-27 record. They could easily catch up with a big winning streak and put themselves right back into the race, but as of right now, this just does not seem likely.

    National writer: Rangers SS Elvis Andrus has far outplayed his 2007 prospect ranking

    Sports Illustrated's Jay Jaffe has been reexamining these annual prospect rankings and re-ranking the top-10s. It's no surprise that Dodgers ace and Highland Park native Clayton Kershaw is now considered the cream of the crop (though it is pretty remarkable that he was outside of the top-10 on both lists). But Jaffe grades Andrus as the ninth-best player from that year not just for what he has accomplished on the court but how much more he has in front of him. "While Andrus's total of 24.9 WAR ranks below that of a quartet of older outfielders who made BA's list ahead of him--Justin Upton, Adam Jones, Jacoby Ellsbury and Hunter Pence--his age (28) and strong 2016 season (3.7 WAR, his highest
