3 Pistons players the Raptors should consider trading for

The Toronto Raptors may have lost at home to former coach Dwane Casey and the Detroit Pistons, but that doesn’t change the fact that these two teams are heading in different directions.

1 stud and 1 dud from Raptors win against shorthanded Bucks

Fred VanVleet and the Toronto Raptors didn’t win a home game during the entire month of November, and it didn’t look like the squad was getting ready up to win one against the mighty Milwaukee Bucks.

Rielly, Campbell help lead Maple Leafs to a nail-biter win over Rangers

After coming off a shutout win on home ice Tuesday night against the Nashville Predators, the Toronto Maple Leafs welcomed the New York Rangers into town for their second meeting of the season within the past month. No lineup changes for the Maple Leafs tonight as Timothy Liljegren sat out for the second straight game and Wayne Simmonds remained in the lineup again after being a healthy scratch Saturday night in Buffalo. Ondrej Kase was also a game-time decision tonight due to him blocking a shot late in the third period on Tuesday night, but he was deemed good enough to play.
The first period was a pretty slow pace for both teams as there were only about four shots combined – three for Toronto and one for new York – almost within the first 10 minutes of the period. However, the Maple Leafs didn’t need to throw a ton of pucks on net early to score their first of the night as Morgan Rielly threw one on the net after a tremendous shift by Simmonds that eventually led to him feeding Rielly for the goal and the Maple Leafs took a 1-0 lead.
Both teams opened up the second period basically …

The Blue Jays need to sweep the Orioles now

What a gut punch.

That home run from Anthony Rizzo hurt. That home run from Aaron Judge stung. That two-run home run from Gleyber Torres fucking felt like having your heart ripped from your chest and stomped on the ground.
Long story short, the Yankees got the job done and the Blue Jays didn’t.
Toronto beat Gerrit Cole on Wednesday night in order to set themselves up to take this all-important three-game series against the Yankees with their ace taking the mound.
Robbie Ray was excellent for five innings but New York’s bats finally got to him their third time through the order. There was some thought that Charlie Montoyo should have pulled Ray after giving up the walk to Stanton or even after the homer to Judge, but, given how thin Toronto’s bullpen is, I can see why he opted to give the American League Cy Young favourite a chance to work through that sixth inning.
While Ray didn’t give Toronto the ace start they needed, the bats also failed to get the job done, scoring just two runs. There were plenty of situations in which the Blue Jays could have put together a rally …
