- I've probably seen, oh, 85% of the Jays games, in whole or in part, during this season of shit. Why, oh why, did yesterday's thriller have to be one of the 15%?
- Speaking of the weekend series in Motown - big ups to Chris from Windsor for his fantastic commentary in the comments section, relaying his first hand experiences. Nails, dude.
- The fact that the Jays have a legitimate top of the order threat (Scutaro), #2 and 3 hitters both likely to put up 30 HR - 100 RBI seasons, Roy Halladay at the top of the rotation, and a ROY threat falling in behind......and still looking like a second division club is actually quite remarkable. Ugh.
- Cito was right (though wrong to run his mouth about it) - every tater Barajas puts on the board makes it less likely he'll return. 20 HR catchers who play good defense are a commodity. And not one the Jays are likely to pay for.
If you'll allow me to climb on my soapbox for some non-baseball commentary (and if you won't - fuck off!), today marks the annual Terry Fox Run across the country and in select locations worldwide. We throw out the term "hero" a little too freely, but Terry absolutely fits the profile. If you've never supported the run, you should consider it, and for any of our loyal readers who might not know the legend of Fox, google it.
That's all. Go Jays.
