B/R’s strange Raptors/Lakers trade is laughably lopsided

B/R’s strange Raptors/Lakers trade is laughably lopsided

The Toronto Raptors are trying to show that they are a team that shouldn’t be trifled with in the Eastern Conference, but their 15-18 record means that they could be selling when the trade deadline turns around.

Alek Manoah dominates the Pirates as Toronto starts series with 4-0 win

For those who observe Alek Manoah Day, they were able to celebrate for good reason.

The Blue Jays took the first of a three-game series from the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 behind a dominant performance from The Big Man, Alek Manoah. Manoah threw seven and a third innings, allowing only five hits, no runs, one walk, and six strikeouts en route to his 13th win of the season and his 20th quality start. He pitched in front of his college baseball team, the West Virginia Mountaineers, as they made the quick trip up to PNC Park to watch their former teammate do his thing.
Johan Oviedo, who was acquired from the Cardinals at the trade deadline in the Jose Quintana trade, started for the Pirates tonight. Oviedo struck out the side in the first inning, all on his slider.

Raptors: Pascal Siakam called one of league’s most valuable bigs

B/R’s 2016 redraft is disrespectful to Pascal Siakam, Raptors

The Toronto Raptors nailed it in the 2016 NBA Draft, as they drafted a player who would become one of their many franchise cornerstones in New Mexico State forward Pascal Siakam.
