While Reyes is all kinds of awful at SS this year, having to use scrubs like Redmond and Rasmussen in a close game will generally burn you. The Jays got lucky with the mess Rasmussen made. Not so with Redmond.

I would very much like to go the rest of my life without seeing Redmond get high-leverage innings again. Not holding my breath on it though. Gibby seems to love the guy.

This is why Santos is still important. He's sucked so far this year and is seemingly never healthy but when he is, I'll take him over Redmond in that kind of a spot every time.

Just because the team was winning, doesn't mean guys like Rasmus and Santos aren't important. I'll be very happy when both are back.

Stroman has been scratched from his start tonight He's not hurt, his agent just told him to hang tight. Trade? or he's being called up.

Stroman starting in Hutchison's spot. Fatigue, managing innings, call it what you want. If it's not injury related, I think it's a brilliant idea to rest Hutch here and there to protect his arm over the long haul. This is his first year back from TJ surgery, can't be asking him to throw over 200 innings (even though Jays said he has no restrictions).

So Stroman is kinda filthy. So glad he showed up today and will likely stay in the rotation leaving Happ/Hendricks to play the "who blows up first" game. My money's on Hendricks given how hard he's been hit. Also Happy has that ridiculous contract.

Stroman's slider is all kind of nasty. And he pitched well. I still have my doubts long term of him being a starter, but we need to give him every chance to fail as a starter. I think Hendricks would be the one that's going to out of the rotation, he doesn't fool anybody up there.

Hendricks sent down. I think he'll be back, probably next time Hutch needs to be pushed back.

This is the most I've been excited about a Toronto sports team during a season since the 2000-01 Raptors. But I'm not a hockey fan so I can't say if there has been any Leafs joy recently (probably not though).

I feel the same way, although I thought this year's Raptors became more exciting as soon as the players started getting more comfortable in their roles, but that's just my opinion.

I don't know your definition of "recently", but the 01-02 Maple Leafs were the last Toronto team to win 2 rounds in a single year, before losing to the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 in the ECF. Since you mentioned the 00-01 Raptors, I figure that's the same vicinity of being recent in terms of success.

If it's just which teams have made the playoffs, Leafs made it last year and the Raptors made it this year. Also, the Blue Jays could finally end that 20 year (not counting the strike year) drought of missing the playoffs and it would mark the first time the Raptors and Jays made the playoffs in the same year. The Leafs and Raptors have been in the playoffs in the same year in 00, 01 and 02. None of the big 3 teams have been in the playoffs together in the same year.
