We have the highest scoring team in baseball (well maybe not anymore, I haven't looked at the numbers in a couple of days), but then some days (weeks?) we can't score.
Right now, we are missing our best player (and it doesn't sounds like he'll back in a hurry), our catcher, our DH and our corner outfielders are Rajai Davis and Anthony Gose. Add in that everybody else seems to be in a slump and it is a surprise when we do score.
|TORONTO BLUE JAYS||SEATTLE MARINERS|
|Brett Lawrie, 3B||Dustin Ackley, 2B|
|Colby Rasmus, CF||Michael Saunders, CF|
|Edwin Encarnacion, DH||Jesus Montero, DH|
|Kelly Johnson, 2B||John Jaso, C|
|Yunel Escobar, SS||Kyle Seager, 3B|
|David Cooper, 1B||Casper Wells, RF|
|Rajai Davis, LF||Mike Carp, 1B|
|Jeff Mathis, C||Eric Thames, LF|
|Anthony Gose, RF||Brendan Ryan, SS|
I'll wish you luck, Thames, but after today, ok?
|2012 - Carlos Villanueva||6-0||27||5||0||0||0||0||61.2||48||21||20||8||31||65||2.92||1.28|
|2012 - Blake Beavan||6-6||15||15||0||0||0||0||83.0||92||48||48||12||12||44||5.20||1.25|
Carlos has been so good. Hoping he will be again.
You know the rules, follow them. Most of them add up to 'don't act like a child'. I always think that I should add a strange rule like all replies to comments should rhyme with the comment that it is replying too, but maybe not tonight.
The post title comes from a Alejandro Escovedo song Chelsea Hotel '78. I saw Alejandro on the weekend. As my son said, his amp goes up to 13, but he was so good it was worth 10% of my hearing. He really rocks.
Go Jays, let's have a win. It seems like hours since we've been .500.
