Deadspin publishes Blue Jays preview. Our Will Leitch man-crush ends.

Maybe we were too needy.

Still, we figured that Deadspin's Will Leitch might have asked us to write the season preview for the Jays. What with the constant emails, phone calls, delveries of fresh muffins and Photoshop collages of us and Will that we sent him every week, we figured he would have been his first choice. We risked jail time smuggling his book into the country. (Heather Reisman has already declared a fatwa on us, because she and she alone has declared that this book shall not be carried in any bookstore in Canada. You can look it up.)

We slavishly devoted ourselves to the Gawker Media Mandated First Person Plural Blog Style, and suffered the associated scorn for our choice.

*sniff*

That's okay. It's not like we started a blog just so that he would be our BFF.

Not really.

No, it's okay. We're fine. We're not crying. It's just raining on our face.

(But while we're getting over it, we should mention that our old pal Neate Sager downed a fifth of J&B and kicked ass in the preview that he was asked to write. Which only twists the knife a little deeper.)

He really did a bang up job. I wondered who the Blogfather would tap to do it.

Why is Lyle Overbay throwing with his right hand?
