Dave Martinez seemed to be lamenting the end of something sacred. There were no clouds inside the Washington Nationals’ media room Saturday afternoon, so Martinez wasn’t yelling at them. He didn’t take a sip of prune juice before starting a back in my day rant and never warned fellow manager Gabe Kapler and the San Francisco Giants to get off his lawn.
The Toronto Blue Jays announced yesterday that outfielder Teoscar Hernandez will be on the 10-day IL due to an oblique strain he suffered in Thursday’s game against the New York Yankees. With the Jays already down a regular player in Danny Jansen with an oblique strain, this is another blow to the regular lineup that will call on some of the bench players to step up in his absence.
From the moment he trotted out of the bullpen with his fellow starters in tow through to his bumpy fourth inning, the left-hander kept a low heartbeat. Even a sharp comeback groundball off the knee didn’t phase him much. It’s just how he is; he’s an easy going, happy-go-lucky guy, though that mantra was tested in the back half of last season, and again in Sunday’s 12-6 loss to the Rangers.
It's only part one. But it's a really nice focus on the Blue Jays great, and how he was robbed. I thought it would be of interest ;)

The Rays do what I'd like the Jays to do with Vladimir Guerrero and Bo Bichette.
