I am a horrible person when I'm bored and today was a seriously boring day at work. You see when I get bored, I get twitchy and just want to do stuff to make myself laugh. As soon as someone got up from their desk I would hop on their computer and rotate their screen 180 degrees (see photo) or change their desktop background to something like this or maybe even this. Tape over Mouse laser, fax to phone-line and anything else you could possibly think of for an office prank. The only problem is after the 2nd or 3rd person everyone knew it was me you just hear people yelling at me from across the office. Childish? Maybe. But such is life when I get bored. This has nothing to do with anything, I just like telling stories. I hope you enjoyed.
Tonight Brandon Morrow has the unenviable task of following up Romero's Dominant pitching performance from last night. Morrow's first start out didn't go so well. He was pretty wild and walked a few. He gave a few runs in the first inning and then settled down before giving up a couple of runs again in the 5th. Taking the hill for the Chi Sox is John Danks who is a bit of a power lefty that can strike out a ton of people when he is on.
|2010 - Brandon Morrow||0-0||1||1||0||0||0||0||5.0||4||5||5||1||5||5||9.00||1.80|
|2010 - John Danks||0-0||1||1||0||0||0||0||6.0||8||2||1||0||1||6||1.50||1.50|
I really hope Morrow can turn it around. He is a guy that I am really pulling for this year and I want to succeed. He was a guy that even when he was in Seattle I was cheering for. The only thing I am worried about is Chicago really coming out strong after being dominated yesterday.
And Rios? Yeah you can stop hitting and remember that you were called the oblivious gazelle for a reason anytime now.
And before you check those eyes. Yes that is our very own Randy Ruiz penciled into the lineup at the 8 spot. He takes over the DH duties while Lind moves to the field and Snider takes a seat for the day. I wouldn't look too far into this, AA and Cito said at the start of the year that Snider would still sit occasionally and most likely against a Lefty so this just is one of those times. In other Jays news as posted early on the site Gregg has been named the new closer for next undetermined amount of time. I figured it wouldn't take too long. Gregg has looked crazy good during his 4 appearances while Frasor decidedly less so. Even during Frasor's saves he gave up walks and hits and didn't exactly look comfortable on the mound. Regardless I still consider this a strong back end of the bullpen with Downs, Frasor, Gregg and Janssen.
