Control was the story on Saturday. Aaron Sanchez didn't have much, Daniel Norris had a little more. Combined they pitched seven innings. Sean Nolin was excellent, Claudio Vargas was not. Dustin McGowan made his first AAA appearance of the season, Danny Barnes made his first appearance for Dunedin. Both went well.
Kevin Patterson had 6 RBI's for Lansing. Lansing won, as did New Hampshire. The other two teams did not do that well.
Morrow's long-awaited return.
Andy Burns hit a solo home run and that was all the Jays needed in a 1-0 win. Kevin Pillar had four hits and scored the winning run in the ninth. Dalton Pompey scored two of Lansing's three runs. The Bisons had only 3 hits and lost.
The Jays made a number of roster moves yesterday. Dustin McGowan was sent to AAA. Dustin Antolin was promoted to AA. Austin Bibens-Dirkx was sent down to Dunedin. Danny Barnes was added to the Dunedin roster. Efrain Nieves was sent to Lansing.
Never sleep, 'cause sleep is the cousin of death.
Ricky Romero continued his impressive decline into the annals of baseball trivia, which his team shrugged off (as most of us wish we could) his performance to win 6-4. New Hampshire was blown out, Dunedin lost a low scoring affair, and Lansing topped an Indians affiliate. The bookends won tonight.
Tonight the farm went 2-2, including 2 stinkers and highlighted by a great pitching performance from a former 1st round pick.
Can you feel it, see it, hear it today? If you can't, then it doesn't matter anyway.
The Monday MLU was rained out with the numerous tears in my beers due to the Leafs epic, ball-busting collapse. So today, it's two for the price of one to get everyone all caught up. The affiliates won five of seven over the last two days.
Trouble ahead. Trouble behind.
"Well Rodney hadn't done it"
"The Blue Jays had won it"
"With Arencibia swinging all the while"
"Bonifacio's stolen bases made us smile"
"And Kawasaki dancing on the dugout tile"
Been a while since I produced a Data Table, but the subject of working starting pitchers on three days rest came up the other day.
This afternoon the farm went 1-2, with two ugly loses, and a win by New Hampshire. Dunedin did not play, as they had the day off.
I'm fine, Mom! How's Washington?
The Bisons hit five home runs and scored ten runs which masked Ricky Romero giving up six runs in 3.2 innings. New Hampshire lost, Lansing won and Dunedin were double rained out.
Wear sunscreen. If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.
