It’s cruel to kick a team when it’s down, it makes me feel a little ashamed of myself to make fun of Toronto. I suppose I should feel guilty and appeal to the better angels of my nature and hope the Jays find their way and live up to pre-season expectations, that they get over their injury issues, that R.A. Dickey remembers how to throw his knuckleball without the expectation that it will disappear like a Saturn V rocket headed for the moon, and Jose Bautiste will once again be the home run hitter he was rather than the fellow standing at the plate trying to corral a change-up with a butterfly net. I should be a better person and wish only the best for the Jays in the final game of the series–naahhhhh!!!!!
Kick ’em when they’re down and get out of town as quickly as possible. Joe Saunders isn’t quite King Felix or the amazing Iwakuma, but here’s to hoping he suddenly remembers how to pitch on the road.
