It’s been one of those years… Again. The Jays look destined to fail in a weak American League East with great bats but terrible pitching. As the team leads the major leagues in walks given it makes one wonder aloud how long the Jays pitching coach Pete “Walker” has left.
Or manager John Gibbons…
Or the GM.
Or if there are any moves that can be made to salvage the season at the 40 game-mark.
It makes me wonder if any of the pitchers from Triple-A Buffalo will come in and steal a spot for themselves through the throwing of strikes, the consistency outing after outing, or the putting out of middle-inning fires, or if the GM is going to be looking for guys like BJ Ryan or Gustavo Chacin to come in and settle things down.
Hey, what is Dave Steib doing? Or Jimmy Key? What about Jim Clancy or Juan Guzman?
Are there no pitchers in the minors that the Jays can resurrect and use for a couple of starts or through this season who can keep their ERA under 6?
I have no idea, but I love the Jays, and hope for a winning streak to push the team back to the top of the sports news and remove the Leafs from our discussion as they have hit rock bottom with no way out…
Or… Toronto can turn their attention to the best Toronto sports team – The Toronto Rock lacrosse club which was outdrawing the Jays not too long ago and who finished 1st in the National Lacrosse League and are in the Eastern Division Finals at the Air Canada Centre this Saturday, May 23rd at 7pm.
The Toronto Rock win in a league with tough competition, and in a very tough, demanding sport, and draw between 10,000-13,000 fans per game…
The most exciting game in Toronto played by the most exciting team, and hey, they win! They went 14-4 on the season, and their leading scorer, Brett Hickey scored 50 goals. Josh Sanderson accumulated 83 assists. These are numbers we, as Toronto sports fans are not used to. There are no nights off or shifts off for these guys. The run, hit, defend and score.
Come support the Rock. Toronto should be thankful for Rock owner Jamie Darwick!
And loosen up your arm because you might just be the next call-up for the Jays!
