MacArthur: New York native Stroman reveres Jeter

Those of us who were teenagers when Derek Jeter broke into the big leagues in 1995 should be particularly bothered by the Yankee captain's final trip to Rogers Centre. As if the individual strands of grey hair or the increasing amount of joint pain weren't reminders enough, the impending end of Jeter's career is a slap-in-the-face indicator of a generation's fleeting youth. TSN 1050's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more

MacArthur: Dickey and Lind on what's gone wrong for the Jays

Before Wednesday's series finale with the Red Sox, sat down with two Blue Jays veterans to get their thoughts on the August collapse. One is Adam Lind, one of the longest tenured Blue Jays, who’s seen this before. The other is R.A.

MacArthur: Pillar returns to Blue Jays humbled by experience

Kevin Pillar is back with the Blue Jays and he’s planning on the experience being different this time.

MacArthur: Blue Jays need to believe they're good enough

Mired in a 6-13 August slump and their playoff hopes seemingly dimming by the day, it's easy to see why some on the Toronto Blue Jays might be taking a fatalistic view of the rest of the season. Still, if the team wants to go on another run, it first needs to believe that it can. TSN 1050's Scott MacArthur explains. ...more

MacArthur: Time's running out, Jays must dominate homestand

Now would be a good time to start stocking the clubhouses in Baltimore, Detroit, Seattle, New York and Cleveland with extra beer and fried chicken. It will take an Orioles collapse the likes of the 2011 Red Sox for the Blue Jays to win the Division. The wild card scene becomes increasingly complicated the more teams jump between the Jays and the lead dog. TSN Radio 1050's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more
