The AA affiliate of the Blue Jays is giving away what?!

A Clay Buchholz Bobblehead.

This is so wrong on so many levels.

First and foremost, shouldn't there be some sort of moral imperative that prevent any the Blue Jays farm team from promoting one of their chief rivals? Are the Fisher Cats so hard up for fans that they feel the need to tap into the douchey Red Sox Nation in order to market to the Massholes? (Or more to the point, pseudo-Massholes!)

And more to the point, is the effigy of a 2-8 pitcher with a 6+ ERA really going to be an attraction? We guess there is no accounting for taste.

And to think that we were planning our summer holidays in Manchester, N.H. next summer. Never more!

I'm pretty sure N.H. did this last year too. I Can't recall the player but it bobblesthefuckingmind!

Is it Clay Buckholz Bobblehead brought to you by Hummer? or is it Hummers brought to you by Clay Buckholz's Bobblehead?

Don't fret. Buchholz got shelled (again) tonight.

That is horseshit.

Actually, I think it's a secret plot to curse Red Sox pitchers. I went to a Fisher Cats game last summer and they gave away Curt Schilling bobbleheads, and look how he ended up.
