I feel for you man. Every time it looks like the Jays are going to have a break through season, there are an absurd amount of injuries and underperformances. It's got to be really frustrating. Still, AA looks like a good guy to have to get you back to the playoffs again, even if this won't be the year.
It begins ... Jed Lowrie scratched with right neck strain. Both Rosales and Søgård start.
Rick Ankiel is 0-3 today, but none of them are strikeouts!
Right neck strain? At least his left neck is still doing okay!
Speaking as somebody who has had a right neck strain, that still sometimes flares back up: gfy!
Detwiler against some guy named Tony Cingrani.
A;so, now that Lackey is out of the game, I can finally take credit for reverse-jinxing him. At the time, early in the second, he had given up 1R, 2H, 2BB with 16 strikes to 16 balls. Since then he got through the 6th inning, no runs, no walks, 3 hits with 40 strikes and 9 balls.
I don't know. Those clowns in Seattle and Cleveland have kept their jobs forever and they have one playoff appearance in something like 10-12 total seasons. Yeah, the Jays crapped out this year, but they could conceivably still be a contender next year and it's not they were rolling in playoff appearances before AA shows up. He might get canned, but I don't think it is a given.

He didn't even look as bad as the results in the first inning though. The umpire wasn't giving him any borderline calls, which resulted in the walks and the run scoring. His stuff looked pretty good all day, though his command is still not 100% coming back from TJS.
Sacrifice by Shelby. Between the intentional walk and the sacrifice(by non-pitchers) I much more prefer the sacrifice.
Cardinals look completely lackluster and impotent today, after the same last yesterday.
And to think I thought they'd be an offensive juggernaut.
Looking at the season to date reliever stats.... and I have to ask, what is going on with Philly? As a team they have had 9 save situations(note:remember save situations is save and hold opportunities) this year.... the league average is 21... Have they been getting big wins? It's not like they have a horrible record.
Just glancing over their wins, seems to be a combination of big wins, late wins, and having Lee and Halladay go 8+ when they have it going, plus a CG from Kyle Kendrick.
The Phillies relievers have allowed something like 450 out of 451 inherited runners to score, with Chad Durbin accounting for at least 300 of those. That may be a factor.
Excellent PA by Harper. 10 pitch walk.
Stanton had a good day today...guess he got tired of operation shutdown...3 for 4, 2hr, 3runs, 4 rbi...
in a Bay Area depression right now, need cheering up !
Has a slight Hitchhiker´s Guide feeling to it. Rose is my Trillian !
I read somewhere that Douglas Adams actually wrote and edited for Who way back when
Actually the Orioles streak survives. The game was tied at the end of the 7th season.
What a disaster the 2013 Jays have been so far... I feel bad for Gibbons. He's being scapegoated a little now, but I don't really see what else he can do to get a dead offense going.
I'm hoping the Leafs go deep and the loogans stay out of the dome. Some airless living-room ball might be what the doctor ordered.
