Well, Toronto Blue Jays, what can we say?
We've been through a rough patch lately, and we probably said some things we didn't mean over the past week. These things happen in the heat of the moment, and while we're not necessarily proud of the things that we said, we want you to know that, together, we can work this thing out. It's not too late for us, and this is a beautiful thing we've got going on...It would be a shame to just throw it away.
Look, we're human, just like all of you (with the exception of Roy Halladay, who is a cyborg from another dimension of awesomeness). We do our best to think about you and your feelings, and we try to be as understanding as we can. We know that you can do better, and that deep down, you're not a bad team. Maybe you were just confused while you were away.
But with all the trials and tribulations we've gone through over these recent bad times, we're here to tell you this: We're just a dude, standing here telling team of 25 other dudes that we love you guys. And with all that we've been through together, we owe it to ourselves to take a chance on each other. We can be great together, just like we were in the early days of the season.
Even with everything that's gone wrong, you're still just two games behind the Red Sox, and four games over .500. That ain't so bad, right?
All that is past has passed, so let's make it a clean slate, and start over.
It's the Red Sox and Tim Wakefield tonight. Make us proud again.
