Toronto Blue Jays' closers for now and the future have included Randy Myers, Miguel Batista, B.J. Ryan and Sergio Santos.

Eric Koreen

The Sergio Santos Era sure was scintillating.

Eric Koreen

Everything is embarrassing. How 'bout that for a hot take?

Doug Smith

Hey. It's me and @timandsid in a minute from a pub in London. What could go wrong?

Ryan Wolstat

Still a chance Tyler Ennis attends Canadian camp if insurance can be worked out. Melvin Ejim there today

Carl English said he'd be disappointed of Canadian group on the way isn't contending for medals when he is no longer part of program.

Ryan Wolstat

Carl English tells us today that he's not dead yet. Intends to be part of team that makes noise next year.

Ryan Wolstat

Team Canada in it for the long haul as Nash, Triano preach patience: torontosun.com/2014/07/20/tea…

Eric Koreen

The last episode of Enlisted was amazing, btw, if you want a hot take on a month-old episode of a long-cancelled show.

Eric Koreen

Agh. Hudak, not Hudek. Way to go, self.

Eric Koreen

Watching old episodes of Enlisted. Tim Hudek looks still so hopeful in his commercials.

Eric Koreen

Most cliches are amazing, it should be noted. It's why they're cliches.

Eric Koreen

What is the best cliche? Like, which cliche is so profound that we should keep saying it despite it being a cliche?

Eric Koreen

Related — this is why California is the best. "There are too many sea lions for us to swim" is pretty first-world. sandiegoreader.com/news/2014/jan/…

Eric Koreen

Important. RT @charlielapin: @Eric Koreen Link for those who want a close(r)-up pic: pbs.twimg.com/profile_banner…

Eric Koreen

I have changed my Twitter cover photo to the greatest photo I've ever taken.

Eric Koreen

It means he's going to start the season by playing no defence, then he's going to be great, then he's going to stop scoring. Duh.

Eric Koreen

Andrew Wiggins at summer league, wearing a Toronto Blue Jays hat. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Eric Koreen

Odrisamer Despaigne just lost a no-hitter after 7.2 innings. That's a Despaigne in the ass.

Eric Koreen

I'll be back to writing about things again tomorrow — at least theoretically.

Eric Koreen

In case you missed any of my summer league coverage, it's here. Thanks all for reading and discussing! sports.nationalpost.com/author/ekoreen/

Patrick Patterson

Damn... I miss Toronto.

Payal Doshi

And the summer of fun, adventure and work continues... #PayalsTravels

Ryan Wolstat

Ejim, Powell, Bachynsk, Heslip, Phil and Thomas Scrubb return from the Canadian developmental team that did so well in China last summer.

Ryan Wolstat

Canada will play 11 friendlies in 4 countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Spain) incl. 6 games in a row in 3 countries. Will platoon players

Ryan Wolstat

"We have to build a winning culture here, this is a new project … As far as developing a national team, these are just the first steps."

Ryan Wolstat

Nash says primary obligation for players is to their teams. But says Wiggins/Cavs have shown interest “there’s a chance he could be here."

Ryan Wolstat

"Everyone's shown interest in being here, but for various reasons, it's not that simple.” Nash, before adding there’s a chance Wiggins shows

Ryan Wolstat

Me to Nash: “I’m sure you took in Summer League, what was it like …” Nash: "I actually did not see Summer League (laughs), sorry."

Ryan Wolstat

Triano lauded Tony McIntyre and Mike George and Ro Russell for developing players and getting them exposure and talked of other coaches.

Ryan Wolstat

Triano said next is Canadian coaches getting props. Happy to see Roy Rana doing stuff with Utah/Raptors, Scott Morrison with D-League etc.

Ryan Wolstat

Triano is hoping this tour helps several players get jobs or better jobs overseas. Also sees NBA players developing through it

Ryan Wolstat

Always going to be difficult to get the star NCAA incoming freshmen and NBA rookies to play. That goes for all countries.

Ryan Wolstat

“So, you're going to be good enough to play in the NBA, but you might not be able to play for our Canadian national team."

Ryan Wolstat

"There's going to be a day when I'm going to have to cut an NBA player from the national team” Triano said compared to when had to beg for 2

Ryan Wolstat

"We're still very, very infant in who we are as a basketball nation, but that's going to change over the next 2, 4, 6, 8 years.” Jay Triano

Payal Doshi

“Process" & "Spot" the two words McIlroy lived by on the course to win him #TheOpen

Ryan Wolstat

Joel Anthony was told to take summer off so young kids could get crucial international experience.

Ryan Wolstat

As expected, doesn't look like the first rounders will be on this trip for Canada But Nash said good relationship with Cavs going forward

Ryan Wolstat

Melvin Ejim and Jordan Bachynski will also be joining Canada for tour following Summer League

Ryan Wolstat

Other Canadians at camp I can spot: Jevohn Shepherd, Phil Scrubb. Steve Nash here walking around (or more accurately being dragged) by son

Ryan Wolstat

Kelly Olynyk Andrew Nicholson Cory Joseph Junior Cadougan Dwight Powell Carl English Brady Heslip amongst the Canadians here

Payal Doshi

I hope Rory wins it today! RT @Andre Iguodala: I picked Sergio to win this week. I hope Im wrong

Ryan Wolstat

Canada will be releasing roster before first game vs. Slovenia. July 24th. Cory Joseph is here today

Ryan Wolstat

At Canada's senior men's camp. Rumour is Steve Nash will be chatting with us today.

I had a productive day today. I got better and that's important so tomorrow it will be another day... #TeamVasquez

Bruno Caboclo

Much thanks to my English teacher Katie. Made me improve every day.

Bruno Caboclo

Thanks teammates, coaches, Raptors' staff and the fans for the support. It was a good ice breaking to start NBA journey

Bruno Caboclo

Leaving Las Vegas. Great experience, increadible week. Not much fan of casinos though.

Eric Smith

Voulez vous du beurre.....

Ryan Wolstat

Horrific officiating tonight, even by MLS standards. Not sure what they are watching.

Patrick Patterson

Does anyone watch "Power" is it any good? #tvshow

Dwight Buycks

My little man just keep me motivated man.. He just growing up right in front of me

Patrick Patterson

#nw "Sin City" Jessica Alba & Devon Aoki

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors depth, for now- PG: Lowry, Vasquez SG: DeRozan, Lou SF: Ross, JJ, Fields, Bruno PF: Amir, Patterson, Hansbrough C: JV, Hayes, (Bebe)

DeMar DeRozan

Back to Manila tonight for the 2nd time this summer. They are basketball crazy in the Philippines!

Josh Lewenberg

Not much $ to spend. Would likely be a depth big or 3rd PG. Raps could also leave it open through camp. Daniels still possible but unlikely

Josh Lewenberg

Again, Raptors expect Nogueira to be with the club this season, working on buyout with his team in Spain. Would have 1 more spot to fill

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors waive Dwight Buycks and Diante Garrett, as expected. Both non-guaranteed contracts. Roster stands at 13. Nogueira would make it 14

Greivis Vasquez

Djjfxkslwkeflfnwvwlxvevwidlrbr

Eric Koreen

I saw @theantlers on Wednesday in Solana Beach. They were good, and this song is, as well: youtube.com/watch?v=9DxAA5…

Eric Koreen

Did not count Daniels, whom the Raptors have not signed to a contract yet. Masai has mentioned him going overseas maybe.

Eric Koreen

If I were Masai, I'd probably leave the 15th spot open to see what need pops up. I'd also be significantly wealthier and better dressed.

Eric Koreen

I believe Diante Garrett has yet to get waived. If he is, and Bebe is brought on board, Raps will stand at 14, I do believe.

Eric Koreen

No surprise, re: the release of Buycks, according to @Shams Charania. He was sharing some parting hugs w/ Raps staff members yesterday.

Ryan Wolstat

Re last RT: No surprise there. Have been reporting throughout Buycks would be cut. Eight turnover game was just final nail.

Greivis Vasquez

Great workout this am.... Let's get some good... Buena practica esta mañana y ahora a comer.. #TeamVasquez

Payal Doshi

Happy Birthday to my lovely friend @annezmakeup! Wishing you a wonderful day full of love, laughter and most importantly cake :)

Doug Smith

Golf friends: Why does Ricky Fowler wear a hat that I believe was manufactured for The Great Gazoo?

Doug Smith

McIlroy eagles two of final 3 holes, has 6-shot lead at Open; I'm guessing Sunday is a formality

Dwight Buycks

Continue to watch over me.. Guild me.. Always be in my corner like you have.. #Amen
