, only one of your teams lost last
night. Trolling? Not really, simply pointing out that last
night was better than Wednesday and that’s a start, no? Toronto
So the Blue Jays have recalled Ricky Romero and the locationally-challenged lefty will take to the hill Friday evening in the first of three against the
’s. If the woeful Jays want to start turning
their season around, tonight would be a hell of a time to start because in all
honesty – Romero could be the last sign of hope for the Jays before the home
team starts to think about doing something drastic. Seattle
The Jays aren’t in a position to dictate demands in trade negotiations nor should they decimate whatever’s left in the farm system for a wing and a prayer. Firing the manager is too easy an answer that seldom produces tangible change and after all, precisely what is John Gibbons doing wrong to deserve the boot? I’m sure the pessimist could point out innate factors to firing Gibbons, but is that real or just the emotions of losing?
At the end of the day, wins and losses in baseball is seldom a matter of managerial decisions and always a product of what the nine guys on the field are doing. The secret to success for the Jays lies with the players they currently have pulling up their socks and getting down to work. Until they show that effort offensively, defensively and pitching – the Jays will find themselves exactly where they are, floundering.
