GameThread - Blue Jays @ Red Sox - May 11, 2013

USA TODAY Sports

I'll likely only get to watch the game when I come in for lunch as we're re-staining the back deck this weekend. It's a big deck. So enjoy the game everyone and think like Ellipses! It is but a game after all...

As much as we like to moan and groan about how badly the team is performing

I think you might want to step away from the Blue Jays for a bit. No, this team is not worse, talent-wise, than it was last year. No, the future is not doomed. We all feel crappy after a bad loss or a bad part of the season but if you’re not getting any enjoyment out of following the team at all – not even hope that things will turn around at one point – then a break might be in order. Sports are entertainment after all, so why stick around if you’re not entertained?

Today's pitchers are Toronto's Mark Buehrle going up against Boston's Clay Buchholz.
