I think this guy is that bad comedian who had a show in like 2001 that had Libby from Lost as the hot girl, and Stacy Keach as the comedic dad, but the main aspect of the show (that guy up there^) just wasn't funny at all.
Anyway, that picture is the story of the bottom of the 7th inning last night. Ricky Romero, as expected, pitched really well (earning a ZH), but was kind of up against a buzzsaw in Tim Hudson. Romero called out his offense last night in an interview after the game.
"I've always said this, at one point, we can't rely on Bautista, we can't rely on Lind, we've got to get someone else to step up, get on base, or drive them in"So yeah.
Oh, and here's something. The Jays got 2 guys on base with none out in the top of the 9th. Then Corey Patterson tried to bunt. Great.
In other news, the Jays signed 15 draft picks, though none are likely to ever play a game of MLB baseball, since the earliest sign was an 18th rounder. As far as I know, a lot of the early picks are unlikely to sign until after the college world series, despite the fact that Jays picks were mostly highschoolers. Or that might be wrong, I don't fucking know.
Jesse Litsch is set to have another rehab start Thursday in AA New Hampshire.
Kyle Drabek sucked really bad in his first AAA start in Las Vegas, and as result, they don't want him throwing his cut-fastball anymore, but rather, focus on the 2- and 4-seam fastball.
Ozzie Guillen got tossed last night, and followed that up by booted Cubs' catcher Geovany Soto's mask about 50 feet.
Umpire Bob Davidson continued to be an embarrassment to baseball last night. Nyjer Morgan was beaned in the arm to start the Brewers-Rays game, but Davidson claimed that Morgan leaned in to the pitch. Brewer's manager Ron Roenicke and hitting coach Dale Sveum both complained and were tossed. Davidson has been in rare form all season long. If you remember back towards the start of the season when the Jays played a 14 inning game in Anaheim, losing on a phantom interference call... yeah, that was him. Have a look at his (wikipedia) track record.
Dale's reaction to that:
Thanks to mocksession for that one.
