Now it’s time for all the stuff I don’t figure on making full posts out of, with the spiffy graphic by Matt English (aka @mattomic). It’s your Afternoon Snack…
Richard Griffin keeps coming with the quality post-game notes for the Toronto Star.
Mop Up Duty did a season preview Jays blogger roundtable, featuring some of the best Jays blogs out there, minus this one, because I’m super lazy and didn’t respond to the email in time. I’m the worst with emails lately!
Dirk Hayhurst tweets that he’s back in the States after his Italian adventure came, regrettably, to a premature close.
Extra Base Hit looks to the recent past to find any correlation between a great spring record and a great season. Do you want the bad news now, or after you read through?
FYI, you can like and share the image with all your friends by finding DJF on Facebook. Do it already!
John Lott of the National Post features Dalton Pompey, while Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com has a whole bunch of stuff from over the last three days– like this one on Brett Cecil. This post is so late as it is that I just can’t be bothered to link it all.
At FanGraphs, Paul Swydan looks at the Jays LF battle, and wonders if their best option (for 2012, at least) is to roster Travis Snider as their fifth outfielder, with Davis and Thames platooning as starters. Ben Francisco, in that– or any– scenario is expendable– so I can at least agree with Paul on one thing.
Lastly, at the Fan590, Mike Wilner suggests– partially via Alan Ashby– that Brett Cecil and Cole Hamels have pretty much the same stuff, only one can command it. Those of you who think I blindly defend Wilner 100% of the time, please take note: that’s a ridiculous thing to say.
