Spinning the revolving door

After having sat through three of the worst Blue Jays games that we've seen all season, it's hard to muster up any energy to be angry or indignant or excited about the plethora of player personnel moves made over the last couple of days.

Rolen to the DL. Wells back from the DL. Litsch up, Parrish down. Shannon Stewart let loose on an ice flow floe.

Does any of this matter at this point?

The Jays had a great opportunity this weekend to make some hay and beat up on one of the weaker teams in the league in Cleveland, and they looked flat out awful at the plate the entire series. Sometime around the sixth inning of Sunday's game, we nearly pitched ourselves over the railing from the 500 section, which is reason enough for us never to sit there again.

We wish we could get jazzed about yesterday's win over the Tigers, but we're just a little too depressed to even care.

i'm glad you didn't jump, Tao, and i hope you were thinking of us, your loyal readers. what the hell would we do without you!?!?!?

you think that with Litsch coming back up, the Jays had no choice but to keep Richmond up here? i mean, i think dick griffin would have exploded if richmond was sent down...

yeah, the Tao of Jim Acker just doesn't have the same ring.

Safe to say readership would take a bit of a hit....

isn't it "ice floe" instead of "ice flow"? signed, anal grammar police

Right you are. "Flow" looked wonky, but we didn't bother to double check it.

We suck.

If you had jumped, they might have stopped the game. Just putting that out there.

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one lacking the oompf to post. And I try not to notice that DJF puts up about 6 huge posts a day, even when nothing is happening.
