MacArthur: In conversation with Jays pitching coach Walker

Before Sunday's series finale against the Rays, sat down with Blue Jays' pitching coach Pete Walker to discuss the state of the starting rotation, which has logged an extraordinary number of innings over the past three weeks.

MacArthur: Dickey handling Saturday's start like any other

When R.A. Dickey toed the rubber on Saturday afternoon for arguably his most important start since his arrival in Toronto almost two years ago, he wasn't treating the outing differently than any of the other 64 starts he'd made in a Blue Jays uniform. As TSN Blue Jays reporter Scott MacArthur writes, Dickey keeps things simple despite the pressures of the final month of the season. ...more

MacArthur: As rivals square off, Blue Jays must win

This weekend's series against the Tampa Bay Rays is important for the obvious reason: the Blue Jays are running out of time and games to make up the three-and-a-half game deficit for a playoff spot they had entering Friday's action. In addition, as TSN's Scott MacArthur writes, four of the teams competing with the Jays are facing off this weekend. ...more

MacArthur: Stroman's sinker a game-changer

MacArthur: Blue Jays like Morrow out of the bullpen

It’s easy to get caught up in small sample sizes and to envision a player excelling in a role in which he’s spent far too little time performing at a high level. But there’s something about Brandon Morrow’s weekend at Fenway Park that’s hard to ignore. TSN 1050's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more

MacArthur: Rasmus won't benefit from Cabrera's injury

Colby Rasmus doesn’t stand to benefit from Melky Cabrera’s fractured right pinky finger, a season-ending injury suffered in Friday night’s loss to the Red Sox. Kevin Pillar took Cabrera’s spot in Saturday’s lineup, playing left field and hitting seventh. Anthony Gose was in centre field, batting ninth. TSN's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more

MacArthur: Rookie Sanchez unfazed by Janssen controversy

Aaron Sanchez is the really talented kid caught in an unnecessarily strange situation. He’s in the big leagues for the first time, dominating almost every time he’s used out of the bullpen and, because of that, he’s consistently finding himself in high-leverage, late-game situations. He’s even saved two games, a role usually reserved for Casey Janssen. TSN 1050's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more
