Colby Rasmus swung at this pitch, and he swung with the full, uninterrupted confidence of a man who couldn’t believe pitches could do that and go there. All Colby Rasmus might ever see, in his head, are fastballs over the plate. All he saw here was a fastball over the plate, even though he was behind in the count against a same-handed pitcher. He got a breaking ball outside in the dirt. Maybe Colby Rasmus is also blind. Are both Colby Rasmus and Rajai Davis blind? I think I might have an idea of why the Blue Jays so badly underachieved. They didn’t underachieve — they just neglected to replace two blind players.
The Blue Jays’ hitting coach, on the other hand, was deemed to be replaceable.
