DUNEDIN, FLA.–A former infielder with the Mets back in the day Twins manager Ron Gardenhire does it all for the team as he is shown here throwing BP prior to their game against the Blue Jays on Saturday March 8, 2014.

The Jays won 4-3 as Jose Bautista homered for the third time this spring.  Yesterday on the show Rocket Sports & Entertainment’s Rick Sassone predicted Joey Bats will stay healthy and have a monster year, with the Jays even making a playoff run.  A far cry from last year when Rick said the Blue Jays would finish dead last in the AL East.

Clemons played or coached four Grey Cup Winners in 1991, 1996, 1997 and 2004, also receiving the “Order of Ontario.” His Number 31 has been retired by the Argos. (EDDIE MICHELS/PHOTO)

-Toronto manager John Gibbons held an informative pregame chat Saturday morning stating that RHP Dustin McGowan was sidelined with a touch of the stomach virus. Also stating that, “Coby Rasmus will be hitting in the cage today off a tee then play against Canada on Tuesday.” J.A. Happ (back) had missed some time and according to Gibbons, “He’s staying off his feet and following doctors orders… I wouldn’t read to much into it.” (EDDIE MICHELS/PHOTO)
