By Laura Armstrong Staff Reporter Wed., March 28, 2018 If there is one thing that just about all sports fans have in common, it’s hope. Hope that this year will be the year that their team does the unthinkable and wins it all. Blue Jays fans are no different, even if Toronto is coming off a 76-86 season and dealing again with the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees — two teams that have only improved since going 1-2 in the American League East last year. The Jays are confident they can play ball with the division’s bigwigs. Here’s why: REVVING ROTATION Toronto’s five starters have quietly become one of the more talked about staffs in baseball, recently ranked at No. 10 in the big leagues by MLB.com. That starts with Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez. Stroman, whose spring debut was delayed thanks to shoulder inflammation, held up his end of the bargain last year, throwing 201 innings and posting a 3.09 ERA. Blisters kept … [Read more...] about Jays regain their optimism as they regain their health
By Morgan Campbell Sports Reporter Sat., March 24, 2018 Royce White leads the National Basketball League of Canada in scoring with an average 24.7 points a game. That isn’t a shock. But his 5.7 assists per game, which lead the London Lightning, are surprising given that the six-foot-eight former NBA first-round draft pick plays power forward. Those stats would usually catch the attention of NBA scouts and lead to a shot at the world’s top basketball league. It hasn’t been that simple for White, who was diagnosed with anxiety as a teenager. And five years after a series of bitter disagreements with NBA teams over strategies to manage his condition, the 26-year-old White isn’t convinced the league will welcome him back, even as its attitude toward mental illness evolves. The NBA announced last week it would hire a director of mental health and wellness, a significant step for a league that previously addressed mental health under its drug … [Read more...] about NBA makes progress on mental health, but is it ready for Royce White?
By Robert Benzie Queen's Park Bureau Chief Mon., March 19, 2018 Care versus cuts. That’s the message Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals will take to voters as the governing party tries to contrast itself against Doug Ford’s surging Progressive Conservatives. In a speech from the throne Monday, Wynne outlined the Liberal government’s agenda leading up to the June 7 election, promising new spending on health care, home care, dental care, pharmacare and child care. With the vote 80 days away — and public opinion polls suggesting the 14-and-a-half-year-old administration may be on its last legs — the premier is promising to expand the new OHIP+ prescription drug program “to include other parts of the population.” That means if the Liberals are re-elected, the free medications now limited to those 24 years and under would be available to many more Ontarians. Article Continued Below Details will be announced in … [Read more...] about Wynne’s throne speech promises new spending on health care, home care and child care in Ontario
By The Associated Press Mon., March 19, 2018 CLEVELAND—Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue is taking a leave of absence from the team to address health issues that have included chest pains and loss of sleep. Lue said Monday in statement that tests have offered no conclusion about what the issue is and offered no timetable for his return. The coach said he feels he needs to step away “and focus on trying to establish a stronger and healthier foundation” from which to coach the rest of the season. “While I have tried to work through it, the last thing I want is for it to affect the team. I am going to use this time to focus on a prescribed routine and medication, which has previously been difficult to start in the midst of a season,” Lue said. “My goal is to come out of it a stronger and healthier version of myself so I can continue to lead this team to the championship we are all working towards.” The Cavaliers also didn’t say who … [Read more...] about Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue taking leave of absence to address health issues
