Maddon Being Maddon
Something just caught my eye.
The Rays play the Jays tonight in Tampa, and the lineups have recently been released. Let's rewind back to earlier this season when the Rays put up a bunch of lefties against Ricky Romero. Someone had finally realized that Romero has had reverse splits for the entirety of his career (the "someone" in this case more than likely being Maddon).
Well, sirs. Brandon Morrow pitches tonight against the Rays, and wouldn't you know it: RRRRSRLRR. Or something like that.
Morrow has shown some pretty significant reverse splits this season, albeit in a smallish sample, though his career splits favor lefties very slightly. Stay tuned.
The Sun's Mike Rutsey suggests Jake Peavy as an off-season addition for the Jays. Works for me.
The Jays traded Yorvit Torrealba to the Brewers for a PTBNL or cash. Works for me.
Apparently Chad Jenkins will get the start tomorrow. Works for me.
