In honor of Shea Hillenbrand, 29 random observations from watching last night's ballgame...
Or the Derek Jeter Affair in 2003? These were sad, sad days in the Greater Toronto Area, my loyal and loving readers. Oh, not Jeter getting hurt, the loss. The loss was sad.
And so are we, by the way.
The Phillies and Blue Jays played to a 9-9 tie yesterday, and will spend the remainder of the pre-season working on extra point conversions. But, the real news was the final roster changes, the subject of much discussion here at the Box.
Well, we all know how that turned out.
And that's why I'm cheaping out!
I can't think of anything. I thought about it for hours and I couldn't come up with anything to say about yesterday's game. This should be a fun Game Report, then.
Excellent game for the good guys yesterday, Walker, League, Glynn, Downs and Whiteside combined for a one-hit shutout of Detroit and the Jays won their 14th game of the Spring.
It's spring time, we're allowed to dream. In fact, we should be dreaming.
You see, the spring will be over soon. We will be bumping our heads against Reality. Not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of the year. It might hurt. Let us dream while we still can...
Today's Game Report is going to be a little different. I don't think anyone has ever done this before.
Mike Wilner, or Wiener Milk, is clearly a Box favourite. So why is this important?
