Nice game Yunel. Have a Zaunhead.
Now, look away as I say something controversial. I'll not be rooting overly hard for the Jays in this coming series. It's not that I don't have the Jays best interests in mind or anything, because I obviously want them to win all of their games, but at this point, let's just try and fuck around with the Orioles as much as possible, no? Because I have no interest in seeing the Orioles in the playoffs.
I had some discussions with some
Anyway, I can live with the fact that people make slightly outrageous statements when things are going well for their club for the first time in 17 years. I understand, and I don't really think I'd act a whole lot differently if the Jays were winning 12 games more than what their expectation was.
Still, seeing the Rays in the playoffs sounds a whole lot better than seeing the Orioles to me, so I won't exactly be furious if the Jays can't handle the Rays this weekend. That's just me though. Anyway, it's mostly spite, but I'd love to see the Orioles finish a game short of a wildcard berth.
Speaking of LOL O's, Zach Britton struck out 10 today, earning a 5-3 win. He's kicked ass in his last three starts. He was demoted this afternoon to make room for Randy Wolf.
JP Arencibia is set to hit off a tee. He's expected back around September 10th or so.
Jason Frasor should be back with the team this weekend.
Shi Davidi tells us that the Jays will probably add a handful of pitchers, as well as Anthony Gose and Yan Gomes as September callups.
