That was a case of a last place team looking like a last place team. No surprises from the Jays so far. At least no good ones. It's only one game but anytime you have to play Goins, Thole, and Izturis and have a light hitting catcher like Navarro at DH vs David Price... not a good sign for things to come.

Yep. 2nd pitch of the game. Jogged to first on a sinking liner. Never came back out. Then admitted that his hamstring was 100% in Montreal. If he didn't let the team know before the game that it wasn't 100%, it's on him. If he let the team know, then it's moronic on the team's part.

A split in this series would be nice.

Despite Diaz's nice game, the replacement level shit-show at SS and 2B is not going to be fun to watch.

Tough win, but it's worth it.

nice win Tues. Hutchison looked great (5 1/3 IP, 4 Ks, 3 BBs, 3 hits).

nice win last night.

Buerhle was brilliant (8 2/3 IP, 11Ks/1 BB, 4 H).

0-19-1 in our last 20 series at the Trop. That is just unacceptable. To be honest, even when they weren't that good, they still had our number.

If the Blue Jays win today and win the series, plan the parade route in November because it's happening! A series win in Tampa = "team of destiny".

So much for that. We still have the 'Navarro will magically fix our pitching staff' narrative to cling to at least.

Much better than Ken Rosenthal's 'Jays didn't add anyone to the team because there's a salary ceiling we can't go above to the extent that players either asked or were asked to reduce their salaries in the bid for Santana.' Although you can guess which narrative is likely to have validity and staying power.

I'm enjoying the reaming that Rogers is taking in the media today. At least it seems like the Jays management knew the rotation needed improvement. They just had to settle for the "we like our internal options" spin once the Rogers wallet was closed up.

I don't follow the jays or baseball at all. But what happened to this team? Weren't they suppose to be an upcoming team that would put everything together last season?

Before last season they traded a bunch of prospects for veterans and on paper looked like world series contenders.

But last season they were hit with every kind of ailment that could conceivably occur.

And this season they have 2 starters over 35 and 3 starters that have spent more time on the DL than on a major league roster.

I don't blame rogers for getting conservative with the funds. AA took a big swing and whiffed, he has rightfully lost some of the ownership's confidence.

I was happy with the moves last off-season, but with hindsight (something a GM needs to have) those moves set our franchise back. I think the original plan (build and develop the farm like TBay) was the best way to go.
