Buffalo Sabres News

The Buffalo Sabres are now in possession of the first overall pick in the draft. In 2018, the Buffalo Sabres used their top pick to grab Rasmus Dahlin. The Buffalo Sabres organization will be looking to bounce back from their NHL worst 15 wins and 37 points season. 

Toronto Blue Jays News 

The Blue Jays started their home away from home stand  against the Houston Astros as the organization announced on June 1st that their home would be at Sahlen Field. The Friday June 4th home game was a disaster as Zack Greinke threw a complete game for the Astros had they won decisively 13 to 1. Saturday’s afternoon game was a lot different as Vladimir Guerrero Jr went yard again for his 18th home run leading the Major Leagues as the Blue Jays would win 6 to 2. My experience of covering Major League Baseball so far has been super exciting and the crowd has been electric. The Blue Jays will be back in action here in Buffalo on June 15th as they take on the New York Yankees for a three-game homestand.
