Toronto Six add to leadership group with the re-signing of Emma Grecco

The Toronto Six continue to build their roster for next season, with the re-signing of defender Emma Grecco. In a press release, Grecco shared:
“My decision to return to the Toronto Six was an easy one,” said the left-handed shooter. “I had so much fun competing with my teammates in the bubble and wanted to continue our momentum into season 7. Even though we didn’t come out with the result we wanted, I am excited to have another chance at winning the franchise’s first championship.”
A Toronto-area native, Grecco continued to explain that she’s looking forward to playing in front of fans:
“I am excited to finally see Toronto Six fans in person. It was a tough year and I think everyone in Canada is excited to start watching hockey live again. It was an adjustment not having in person fans last season so I am very excited to experience the atmosphere and celebrate with my teammates.”
The team is hard at work getting ready for next season, where they will look to replicate and build on the success of their freshman outing. Stay tuned to TLN for more Toronto Six news.

Angels at Blue Jays 06/17/19 – Odds and MLB Betting Trends

by OddsShark (@OddsShark)
Edwin Jackson will be looking to build on his best outing of the season so far when he gets the ball on Monday night for the Toronto Blue Jays as they open a four-game home series against the Los Angeles Angels.
The Angels hadn’t announced a starter for this contest as of Monday morning, with their plan reportedly to use an ‘opener’ for the game then bring in righthander Felix Pena. Still, Los Angeles is the betting favorite for Monday at -155 (wager $155 to win $100) on the MLB odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

The righthander had given up 29 runs (24 earned) over just 14 2-3 innings combined in his previous four outings, and the Blue Jays are 1-5 in his six starts so far this season.

Blue Jays swept out of Los Angeles after frustrating stretch

Hoping to build off a solid set against Oakland at Rogers Centre, the Blue Jays (14-17) headed west to face off against Mike Trout and the Angels (15-17) in a midweek series in Anaheim. Unfortunately for them, they were embarrassed throughout the majority of the series and left town with a trio of losses.
Here’s a look at the good, the bad, and the weird from a disappointing week in California:
The Good
Relievers Daniel Hudson (1.0 IP, 0 ER, H), Elvis Luciano (2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, SO), and Ken Giles (1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, SO) were sound on the mound, while Joe Biagini (1.0 IP, SO, 0 H, 0 R) continued to throw the ball well.
On the offensive side of things, Rowdy Tellez (4-for-7, HR, RBI, 2B) contributed valiantly, with Randal Grichuk (3-for-8, 2B, HR, 3 RBI) also getting in on the action
Clay Buchholz (5.0 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 3 SO) was decent in his outing, though the starting pitchers as a unit were not dependable enough throughout.
The Bad
Teoscar Hernandez (0-for-7, 3 SO, 0 TB) had a dreadful series, as did Brandon Drury (1-for-8, 2B, 5 SO), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (0-for-4, 2 SO), and Freddy Galvis (0-for-9, 4 SO, 0 TB). Billy McKinney (0-for-5, 2 SO, 0 TB) also scuffled in limited …
