He didn't get lit up. I could handle this.
What I probably can't handle is the moving of any real assets for Jeremy Guthrie, which is the current rumor floating around. Mike McDade isn't exactly your blue chip prospect like an Adam Lind or a Travis Snider or anything, so it probably isn't really a big deal. It's just that uh, Jeremy Guthrie isn't a very good pitcher anymore. He's been pretty well average (a bit better, I guess) for a few years, and has gotten fucking lit up since being moved to Colorado and falling off his bike.
Other than that... sweep! Against the Phillies! 17 straight division titles or something! Milwaukee tonight. We'll get to see Ryan Braun. Fucking cheater.
Kyle Drabek is going to have Tommy John Surgery again. That kind of sucks. This will be his second, but according to Barry Davis, both Shaun Marcum and Kyle Drabek have had TJ twice, and both have had productive major league careers. Ironically, perhaps, Shaun Marcum will not start against the Jays tomorrow, due to elbow tightness. The Jays still don't have a pitcher officially slated to start on Tuesday or Wednesday either, despite how soon that is. All of this stuff is coming from Davis' twitter account. He's really bringing it tonight.
The Jays have signed Shawn Hill. He's from Canada. He's a pitcher. He was playing in some kind of independent league. He uhhh... meh.
Vlad Guerrero isn't anywhere close to signing with anybody. Maybe he shouldn't have requested his release. Fucking bozo.
Night off for Kelly Johnson. He looked like he was kind of feeling it towards the end of yesterday's game, but I haven't heard anything official about injuries or anything of that nature. I'd be shocked if he wasn't feeling pretty beat up. Omar Vizquel gets in to the lineup in his place, for some reason. No DH tonight, so we might get to see Edwin in LF at some point if the Jays want to get Cooper or Gomes in to the lineup.
