No Jays game last night, so there's not a ton to write aboot, but there's some stuff.
Tony Larussa and Bruce Bochy had a battle to see who was more incompetent last night. I don't know if I can embed gifs on here or not, but we'll give it a shot. I fucking hope it works, because this is amazing. Props to <3_tha_grind on 2+2 for this one. (Click on it).
Adam Lind went 3 for 4 with a double yesterday in a rehab start in A-ball. He hopes to return this weekend.
As I had predicted so nicely, Josh Roenicke was removed from the 40-man roster the other day, and was claimed by Colorado. Roenicke had been pretty inconsistent in parts of 2 seasons with the Jays after coming over in the Scott Rolen trade. This season in AAA Las Vegas, he's got an ERA over 6, with a bb/9 rate also over 6. The move is probably to make room for Brett Lawrie, who was rumored to be getting the call up, but is now day-to-day after being hit on the hand by a pitch. AA has a policy in which he likes to debut guys on the road, which means that it's either this weekend in Baltimore, Monday-Thursday in Kansas City, or wait until July 16th... or debut him at home.
Jose Bautista was named the MLB Player of the Month for May, the second straight month in which he's won that honor. He also won the award in July and August last season.
MLB.com has a draft preview for all teams on their website. Here is a link to the Jays' preview. The Jays pick 7 times in the first 76 picks, starting with the 22nd pick I think. The draft is June 6th and 7th.
Tom from Bluebirdbanter.com breaks down the Jays' hitters performance in May.
Remember like a week ago when Corey Patterson stole 2nd base so the White Sox could walk Jose Bautista? Joe Posnanski got mad. He doesn't like intentional walks.
