We’ve all heard of the Drake curse, but a new Toronto sports curse is starting to catch people’s attention. This year is looking eerily likely to be the third time a league has had to cancel its season following a Toronto team winning the championship.

Article content There’s plenty to look forward to — and forget — in a 162-game Major League Baseball season, a game that settles into a rhythm unlike any other North American professional sport. If you’re like me, as soon as you get your hands on one of those wallet-sized pocket schedules — as I did before returning from Dunedin — you likely look for and take note of the highlights.

Earlier in the week, I kicked off this fun series where I’ll be ranking the best bobbleheads in Angels history. Over the last 20 years, the Angels have given away over 50 bobbleheads to their fans at Angel Stadium. I figured there’s no better way to commemorate that, than by ranking them!

With that said, given that we don’t know when the season will start I will be taking some liberties when applicable to decide whether or not injured players will be healthy by the time the season begins.

If Major League Baseball needs to squeeze more games into a condensed season without exhausting pitching staffs, perhaps this idea could get tossed into play: seven-inning doubleheaders. Maybe that’s something we have to consider,” Toronto Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said on a conference call Wednesday.
