The Blue Jays released a statement on the Yunel Escobar eyeblack issue.The next day a press conference was held. I still think the Jays should have prepared Yunel better for it, that he shouldn't have said 'I have gay friends' unless, of course, he could name one.
I posted the Best and Worst Seasons for Blue Jay DHes by WAR. Since then, Adam Lind's 2009 season would give him the 3rd best season for a DH and this year, if he stays at 1.7 WAR, he'd be tied for the 9th spot on the list. But then his 2010 season would put him tied for the 3rd worst season and 2011 and 2012 would also land him on the 10 worsts seasons, though the 2011 season he played mostly first base.
Jesse Carlson was suspended for three games for his part in a brawl with the Yankees. The comment thread became an argument about the value of Marco Scutaro and someone arguing that Randy Ruiz would hit 35 home runs in a season in the MLB. Yeah, someone actually thought that a guy that hit 25 home runs in Vegas, could hit 35 in the majors.
