Mr. Clutch – Alex Rios? Oh hell yeah. 2 outs? RBI possibility? No problemo count him as batted in. What a crazy lil baseball weekend. Rios finished off a 4 game sweep of the White Sox in prep for the showdown in beantown. Not to mention THREE Yankee Walk-offs? Crazy.
Side note: I actually wrote that all in a draft and saved it … but not finished. Haha. I should check first.
Moving on .. quickly. A-Rod’s reaction when he hit his walk-off in HIS House .. was perfect. I knew it would happen. It’s a homer park and houses the games best, he’s supposed to do that. Plus, he actually wants to now. Clutch A-Rod and A-Rios. Love it … in my confused AL East mind.
Saturday was Jr. Jays day and my lil cousins loved it. I taught them a valuable thing. The art of the rally cap.
You are welcome Mr. Lind.
Actually, thanks Adam and the rest because the screams of IT worked!!! and super excited anticipation of when they can do it again, was well pretty damned cool.
2 pitches. ahaha. Yeah he was really trying to hit him.
Happycheesy faces are always gold.
Eh to be Stairsy. Although Ricky’s grin may be even bigger.
Saturday was Robert “looks like AJ with no goatee” Ray’s first win. I think I even saw AJ’s first win as a Jay too. Means absolutely nothing except it’s a mild horrible segue into posting the AJ sad face walk-away pic because it makes me laugh.
AJ Jr. did do something different I guess.
Win. lolol111!!. Oh snap. burnnn.
DJF has one of the funniest takes on the matchup that went down. It’s a preview but the pics and the JP knock at the end is killer. Truthfully I didn’t want AJ to go … to the Yankees. But not because he was such a great Jay, but because I’m still a Yankees fan. I saw AJ’s greatest year in 2008 and I cheered like a beast for him unlike every Jays fan I knew. But I knew that was it. When he signed I just said he’s now a Yankee retread and I thought this was the year they were gonna be smart investors. New first name, same re$ult. Still Teacher vs Student was pretty damn cool.
43k rocking the Dome? I haven’t heard that since … opening day and then before that Canada vs USA at the WBC.. but previously … well obviously it’s been silent since 93. I’ve been to MANY big time games and I had the chance to go to this but passed.
Passed? yes … you see it was opening day of my 2nd softball league and well you know … I’d rather play. I still got home to see AJ exit, that was a pretty cool moment. Electricity in MAY!
Look what the Jays HAD to do to get noticed on MLB.com. TWIB was forced to show another Jays rookie Scott Richmond who was the AL Rookie of the Month. Richmond vs Greinke vs Romero vs Bannister is gonna be fun this year. Battle of the nobody’s that everybody should know. Scottie incidentally takes his 4-1 record into battle tomorrow night… just in case Halladay didn’t warm you up.
I was once blessed with watching Jim Clancy, Dave Stieb, Jimmy Key, Juan Guzman, David Wells and even a Cy Young winner Pat Hentgen start games here. Then Roger freakin Clemens had 2 of his greatest years in front of my face. Now I suggest any Jays fan go watch Roy start live, and be grateful you get to watch him pitch every 5th day. He’ll be the 2nd Jays player (after Robbie Alomar next year) in the HOF. He IS that mega-superstar we think we need to sign. Scott “rock and” Rolen and Aaron MVP Hill round out the 3 stars.
Roy – Complete game, 1 run masterpiece, AJ – 8th inning 5 run exit.
“It does seem like old times,” manager Cito Gaston said with a smile.
