Who's up, Who's down, first week of spring games: Infielders

Back on Tuesday, we took at look at how our potential starting pitchers fared after the first few spring games, I thought we'd also look at how our infielders at doing. Infielders Adam Lind Adam has played in 5 games, he's 4 for 14, 1 double, 1 home run, 4 strikeouts. Hitting .286/.286/.571. I'm not worried about the 0 walks, I want guys swinging early in the spring to get their timing down. The home run was a massive shot, really long. He's looked good at the plate. He has t

There’s no business like show business: Fiorito

He laughs when he is mocked. He is his own punchline. The laughter is no joke. He has taken note of this for 40 years. His eyes bulge. His face is red. He takes ice in his water. He wipes the sweat from his face with a handkerchief. His handkerchief is a flag of convenience. There is no taunt he has not heard. He is a pie in the face of himself. He is a soft-boiled egg. He is a cream puff. The joke is not on him if he says it first. His heart has turned to stone. To weep is to lose is a thing he

Police board member Andy Pringle responds to Doug Ford complaint...

Police board member Andy Pringle, who once went fishing with Chief Bill Blair and is now facing conflict-of-interest allegations from Councillor Doug Ford for it, says the claim has “no merit.”Pringle defended the spring 2012 fishing trip to New Brunswick in a letter written to board chair Alok Mukherjee on March 3 and obtained by the Star. The letter follows renewed complaints by Ford that were first voiced in November, when the Fords were under intense pressure over the crack video.“Though the

Leaf Dave Bolland’s injury saga not cut and dried: Feschuk

If you listen to Randy Carlyle, the Maple Leafs coach, you can sometimes get the idea that David Bolland is holding out on his teammates.Bolland has been out of the lineup more than four months since the moment a skate blade pierced his cut-resistant sock and severed a tendon in his left ankle. And while he’s been skating for more than seven weeks, including during an optional practice on Thursday, his timeline for a return to NHL games remains unknown. People familiar with Bolland’s situation w

Ontario failing children with autism, reports reveal

In two new reports, families are repeating pleas for Ontario to revamp its autism services, citing wait lists, red tape, confusion and a crippling financial burden for parents who can’t get help for their children.The reports are a reminder that while at least four separate bodies have been looking into problems with autism programs for the past year, desperate parents are still fighting daily battles on behalf of their kids.Many endure the “heart-breaking experience” of waiting for years for pr

Toronto city hall aide Sheila Paxton faces federal lawsuit seeking...

Drivers need to pay more attention, mother of three women hit...

Three sisters hit by three different drivers on three different occasions — all at the same North York intersection. One incident was trauma enough for their mother, Judith Jung, a teacher who was called out of work each time. But three incidents is just maddening, and highlights the need for drivers to pay more attention to pedestrians, she said.The siblings — twins Felicity and Genevieve Jung, 18, and Mary Frances Rizzuto, 32 — were hit as they crossed Beecroft Rd. at Park Home Ave., in the Yo
