Sunday quick-hitters (pitchers)

BOOM.....Ricky Romero is pitching like a rookie of the year candidate.

BOOM.....Scott Downs is proving that he just might be the best left-handed set-up man in baseball.

BOOM.....BJ Ryan looked strong in picking up his second save of the season.

BOOM....the Jays are 10-4. Ten wins, four losses.

(somebody else say it for me....)

I'm stoked, New York and Boston are going to be on our heals for a while though. The AL East will be a bitch but we for sure have a shot at the division/wild card.

Chris said...

I think you should take the "left-handed" out of the Downs comment.

The Ack said...

^^ truth.

good call on that.

Starting to not mind so much that Marcum is out this year - but can you imagine if the "weak" starting staff actually turns out to be a pretty reasonable starting staff? I know, I know, only 14 games ... but this is awesome.

Poor ol Brad Wilkerson retired

I think he may be missing part of himself ever since Mench went overseas to play.

Wilkerson = Hall Of Fame. He may have sucked, but at least he sucked clean.

The legacy of Wilkerson will live on

The Ack said...

somewhere (in Japan), Kevin Mench is crying himself to sleep.

RIP Mencherson.

They go hand in hand.

Weird, I googled "sucked clean" and it brought me here. Not exactly what I was looking for, but it's nice to be back among friends.

I'm shocked that going into this game, I had more confidence in Ricky (Lucy you have some 'splaining to do) Romero than any other of the human starters (Halliday-bot 2000 doesn't count) and he shows my confidence wasn't misplaced. A 1-0 win? I thought only Roy was allowed to do that. Hope it contiues when the scouting reports are all over the league.

What else happened this weekend. Faceless nameless backup catcher #1 got replaced with faceless nameless backup catcher #2. I can't tell the difference. Overbay is overback. Purcey makes my butt-hole clinch up. The strike zone is over there David. Scutaro is the best deal in baseball. I'm not down on Rios but damn, he looks lost at the plate. Downs has decided that there will be no hits this year. Maybe next year.

You should have seen the traffic last year when we posted about A.J. and creampies.
