Baseball … that's it. Old school cards, memorabilia, insights, rants on MLB, WBC, baseball in general and most likely AL East chatter .. specifically my home town Jays and ironically my semi-home town Yankees.
The Toronto Blue Jays have signed Leon Boyd, one of the heroes of the underdog Netherlands team at the World Baseball Classic, to a minor-league contract.
Boyd, who was born in Vancouver but whose mother is Dutch, was pitching in the Dutch League and was used as a short reliever at the WBC where he was scouted by Sal Butera, the Blue Jays special assistant.
Even better than that … he has a blog. He’s not as equally enthralled with the Venezuelan fans as I am. Maybe he didn’t meet any Venezuelan mamacita’s…
… either. My search is still on. Boyd is probably not gonna help me.
