Things are starting to look a little strained around the Blue Jays blogosphere. It is starting to look like the honeymoon period may be over for a lot of fans as it pertains to John Farrell. It certainly is a fine line, a little while back I posted about my confidence in the team and the manager and people were saying that it was still too soon and he was a rookie manager. I imagine a few of those folks are now thinking, ok... come on John.
Either way, baseball moves on and of course that old adage is that the best part about baseball is the fact that you can afford to have a short memory since you go right back out the next day. We rattle off a few wins in a row and people get happy again and we don't hear about any of the complaints.
Hopefully there is a nice crowd at the Dome tonight with Boston rolling in, unfortunately that usually means there are a lot of Boston fans in the house as much as there are Jay fans. Regardless I know its weird but even just watching from home, I get more excited when the seats are full. It creates more of an atmosphere at the game and creates more of an event to watch on television.
