Eddie Michels on the scene as the Jays continue to roll in… manager Farrell addresses the media and spends time with son, young Jays run…  16 games back last year, can the Jays improve on that??… Rick Sassone says, “Doubtful”

Third baseman Brett Lawrie is looking to continue his assent in a positive way to manning the hot corner for the Toronto Blue Jays this season but he is taking a slow and metered approach. "It's just good to be here and kind of getting back at it," said Lawrie, "It's kind of exciting as we got a couple of plus guys for our bullpen and I think we did a good job of just staying on top of things. Things are looking very positive for us to go forward." The Blue Jays first official workout for pitchers and catchers is scheduled for Wednesday February 22. (Photo by Eddie Michels)
