Monday morning bright side

The briefest of posts following a shittacular weekend of Blue Jays baseball. Accept this as my attempt to lift your (our) spirits.....

  • Roy Halladay and Aaron Hill - All Stars!
  • GBOAT hit streak - 22 games!
  • Adam Lind - straight raker!
  • Carlson and League - scoreless appearances yesterday! In the same game!
  • Handsome Raul Chavez - on fire!
  • Pitching staff escapes Sunday unscathed by injury!

Uh, yeah. These bullet points are degenerating rapidly. I'd better end it right here.

Go Jays?

I was all full suicide watch this morning until I asw that my boy Knudson provided me some more fodder to vent my frustrations. He will snap....it's become my mission in life...

I have to admit, I did think of Knudson when I read this quote from JP:

http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/story/11925937

"We have to see what makes us better," he said. "Obviously, if people have interest in Roy Halladay, they'd better realize there's a steep price that's going to come with it."

"We have to be smart with how we can build our team," Ricciardi said. "We have to be open to anything, really."


....then I immediately pushed the thoughts out of mind. Let's just say you wouldn't be reading this post if I hadn't.

At least ol' P.R. is verbalizing that it would be "steep." Let's just hope that if it happens, he rapes whatever team comes calling (and makes them take Vernon's contract too.)

Hey, a boy can dream. And while I'm at it, I can dream that Doc would return as a FA to a newly stocked team! Boners!!11!!1! Playoffs (in 2011) !!11!!!1!1!

Ack, I appreciate your optimism in this difficult time. The glass is half full in Blue Jay land .. it's half full of scotch, but it's still half full.

Happy trails, Rusty Adams. Bummer it never worked out for both parties. On the bright side, it's R-zep time.

That name is straight out of my hometown in Dunkirk, NY. I hope I can go watch him pitch in a game down at the Dom Polski club.
