Quick Recap: Spring Game 21, Jays and Pirates

Blue Jays 8  11 Pirates 2

Wins are nice things, even in the spring. 


  • Brian Tallet had a really good start, I think his second good start in a row. Life is good. 5 innings, 2 hits, 1 walk, 5 K and no runs. Jordan Bastian has Cito saying he's doesn't rule out Tallet pitching the second or third game of the year. 
  • Will Collazo is the only pitcher that had a bad day. 1 inning, 3 hits, 2 earned runs.
  • Casey Janssen threw 1.2 perfect innings. Still has a 0 ERA on the spring, but that doesn't count B games, so he may have given up a run that we don't know about.
  • Jeremy Accardo went 1.1 perfect innings. 


  • Jose Bautista: 2 for 3, walk, homer, double. Great day for him. .459.
  • Aaron Hill: 2 for 3, double, RBI. .444.
  • Brad Emaus: 1 for 1, RBI. .410.
  • Jeremy Reed: 2 for 4, 3 RBI. He has 10 RBI on the spring. He's hit mostly singles but a lot of them. .420.
  • Kyle Phillips: 1 for 4. Played first. Lyle is sitting for a couple of days. .474.
  • Edwin Encarnacion: 0 for 5. .111.
  • Chris Lubanski: 2 for 5. 2 doubles, 2 K. Too little, too late. .189.
  • Alex Gonzalez: 0 for 2, walk. .226.
  • Mike McCoy: 1 for 2. Played short and made a nice play. .476.
  • Jose Molina: 1 for 3, double, 2 RBI. I think they can stop pretending it is a battle and give him the job at backup catcher. .182.
  • Raul Chavez: 0 for 1, RBI. Not that Chavez is hitting any worse than Molina. .188.
  • Joey Gathright: 0 for 3, run. .167. Apparently made a really nice catch in the outfield. I'm not a fan, but gotta feel a bit sorry for him. He's not as bad of a hitter as he has shown, but looks like he's going to Triple A.

Tomorrow Ricky Romero starts for the Jays against Guthrie and the Orioles. A chance to get back to .500. 

Just listening to Bud Selig interview during the Cubs game. He says there will be no 'floating realignment', any realignment will be "permanent". Sounds like he read all the folks saying what a dumb idea it is.
