He looks smart, doesn't he? Well folks, it's not all smoke and mirrors. According to John Lott, Edwin Encarnacion is now firmly cemented as the #4 hitter, moving Adam Lind to fifth against righties and "who fucking cares?" against lefties. So yeah, it took a while, and it's still a work in progress, but that's not bad.
What else? The Jays are in Baltimore now, having left late last night and probably getting in at fucking 2AM or something. Fortunately, it's Baltimore, and that's where the Orioles play. It's not that they're terrible, it's just that they don't have any pitching whatsoever, which makes them completely useless, especially in this division. And hey, the Jays just took 4 straight from a team that has a good lineup and no pitching!
If it wasn't bad enough for them, Nolan Reimold will probably be out for tonight's game, and will be day-to-day going forward, as he has a strained neck and spasms. Robert Andino will also be out after tonight's game because he made a baby and that shit is set to drop any minute now. Finally, "ace" Jim Johnson is probably out for at least tonight's game, since he spent last night in hospital with the flu. I assume they're going to try and quarantine him away from the rest of the team so they don't all get the shits, but I can't confirm or disconfirm that. All of that stuff came from this link.
Five in a row?
