Marco Estrada and Evan Longoria are old college teammates. "I'm not going to hit my buddy on purpose," Estrada said after Longoria accused him of doing just that.

A few pitches in this game were too close for comfort, but theatrics ensued after the one that hit Evan Longoria in the hip.
In a game often laden with romantic mythology, the beanball battle is one of baseball’s churlish traditions

At the Rogers Centre, the new turf is a player.
The Blue Jays' home opener was delayed briefly in the bottom of the third because an opposing player had something in his eye

While Major League Baseball is trying to speed up the pace of games, its new security measures are slowing down pace of entry for fans. Here's a video, shot at Jays games in New York and Baltimore, that gives Toronto fans an idea of what to expect when the team comes home for 10 days starting April 13.

Aaron Sanchez threw too many fat fastballs in his first big-league start. Meanwhile, Ubaldo Jimenez silenced the Blue Jays batters in Baltimore.
He was exceedingly fortunate to have escaped more damage than the three runs the O’s pinned on him in their 7-1 victory

For seven innings, the Blue Jays played crisp, confident baseball and looked poised for a second straight victory. Then a Yankee hit a popup into the wind.
Before the weather and the game turned ludicrous, the Jays had played admirable baseball, just as they did on opening day

Jose Reyes has a small crack in his rib. The Blue Jays will rest him for four days, then see how he feels before deciding whether to place him on the DL. 
Reyes will sit out the weekend series against Atlanta. After the club’s off-day on Monday, he will be re-evaluated

The Blue Jays lost Jose Reyes to injury and the game to the Rays. Bothered by a strain in his left side, Reyes said it would have been "dangerous" to continue playing through the pain.

As Blue Jays fans lined up in the rain to go through metal detectors, baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said the U.S. government pressured MLB to increase stadium security. MLB happily complied, he indicated.
MLB’s new security protocol is the direct result of edicts from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which aims to thwart terrorist activity

In the latest bout in his ongoing battle with Darren O'Day, Jose Bautista delivered a knockout punch.
Bautista had to duck out of the way of an O’Day fastball in the eighth inning. The pitch was a little above Bautista’s head
