Oh man... man oh man oh man. Ever have one of those days? Where everyone just gets on your last nerve? Where no matter what happens or who talks to you, you just want to punch them? Today was one of those days. I don't know if people were saving up all of their stupid over the long weekend just to give it to me today but it sure felt like it. And it was non-stop today was on the busiest days I had since the heart of RRSP season. Together with the stupid that people were throwing around I was on the edge of snapping. The Jays need to win tonight because despite how I feel the Jays can cheer me up with a well played game. So help me if they play like crap tonight with errors and ton of walks I might just something something something... Go Crazy? DON'T MIND IF I DO!
Tonight towing the rubber and balancing my sanity at the same time will be Ricky Romero. It was discussed on the site today on whether or not Ricky should qualify as an all-star. Frankly I think he deserves it but he is in tough. Heck you could make the argument that Marcum has been just as good. Still so far so good in avoiding that sophomore jinx. Opposing him will be Ervin Santana. Last time out against us Santana dominated. 1 run complete game. Let's get revenge on him for that one. Time to break out the big bats boys.
|2010 - Ricky Romero||4-1||9||9||1||1||0||0||63.0||47||19||19||2||24||64||2.71||1.13|
|2010 - Ervin Santana||3-3||9||9||1||0||0||0||60.0||62||27||25||9||20||52||3.75||1.37|
And just for a little extra incentive for Ricky, we have this tweet from Bastian tonight:
Romero expecting 200+ family and friends in the stands tonight for his start. Ricky is from LA & this is his first big league outing here.
Nice. Let's hope he makes em proud.

Keep it Civil because I'm in a bad mood...I know what you're thinking. "Did he ban six guys today or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum ban button, the most powerful ban button in the world, and would blow your username clean off the page, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?
Today's title comes from Anger Management.
GO JAYS GO!
