Because it's clearly needed.

Atkins said something the other day that got my attention, although it seems to have passed more or less unnoticed.

Buffalo won, the DSL Jays won and the other two wins came in doubleheader splits for Dunedin and the GCL Jays. Riley Adams had a quiet month of July but he ended with an OPS of 873. He has been good in two out of three months.

The new and dis-improved Jays head into Baltimore for another battle of the de-fledged birds. The newest Jay, and Ross Atkins fanboy, Derek Fisher will be on hand as will Trent Thornton and Jason Adam. Adam, who was in the majors with kansas City last season, has pitched in eight games for Buffalo.

New Hampshire scored two in the ninth to come from behind and win. Lansing scored two in the tenth to win. The GCL Jays gave up two in the eleventh and lost. Vancouver's bats were en fuego. Buffalo lost as Anthony Kay did little to take the heat off of Ross Atkins. Bluefield won, the GCL Jays lost. Otto Lopez hit well, as did Jesus Lopez.

The trade deadline has passed, three pitchers have been excised from the active roster and I gather there's a great deal of distress about losing... Joe Biagini and Aaron Sanchez?

Folks need to vent, and this is the Emergency Thread.

Two teams with identical, and identically awful records? It's the Toilet Bowl, folks!

If things didn't end badly, they wouldn't end at all?

That's not always true. It just seems that way sometimes. I hate to think of Marcus putting all those balls in play with that defense behind him. But he does get to hit and run the bases. Good luck to him. It's been fun.

Since beating up the Orioles right after the all-star break, the Rays have lost three straight series versus the Yankees, Red Sox and White Sox. The Rays looked like they were headed for a wild card spot but now find themselves on the outside. The Rays have lost Kevin Kiermaier, Blake Snell and Yandy Diaz over the last week. The Jays will not miss facing Snell, and Kiermaier always seems to play well against the Jays. The Jays come off an off day and will navigate "maximum rumour weekend" (tm).

It was a mixed night on the farm, four wins and three losses. New Hampshire, Lansing and Bluefield had big wins. Vancouver needed a ninth inning home run to send the game to extra innings where the C's picked up a walk-off win. Buffalo and Dunedin lost. Otto Lopez picked up three hits, the good Justin Dillon pitched and Bo Bichette stole home.

New Hampshire lost due to a bullpen blowup. But the story was Nate Pearson who threw 5.2 hitless innings and Kevin Smith, who brought his batting average over .200. Buffalo came from behind to win. Lansing, Vancouver and Bluefield all lost. Lansing managed to lose on a catchers interference call that brought home the winning run. It was just the Lugnuts third error of the inning. The rains in Florida sidelined the two Florida teams.
