Now it’s time for all the stuff I don’t figure on making full posts out of, with the spiffy ALTERNATE graphic by Matt English (aka @mattomic) that I just couldn’t keep letting stay dormant. It’s your Afternoon Snack… er… Afternoon Hangover… er… links!!!
The Getting Blanked GIFs of the Week are always good for what ails ya– especially when there’s an appearance from Sonny Chiba!!!
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports has a video response to the many questions he’s received this week about umpire accountability.
Michael Grange of Sportsnet talks about what the future holds for Adam Lind, while House of the Bluebird muses on the fact that if Lind can be sent down, and Cecil, and Snider, then no one is safe on this Blue Jays team.
Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail weighs in on Lind as well.
Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun doesn’t think he’s had his last conversation with Adam Lind here in Toronto, as he wonders what the Jays might do once Lawrie’s suspension is over, and Yan Gomes has served his purpose.
Eric Koreen of the National Post also looks at Lind’s troubles, while Ken Fidlin of the Sun reviews the Jays’ post-turmoil victory last night, and the continued heating up of Jose motherfucking Bautista. Nails!
At Getting Blanked, Parkes uses his URL Weaver post to talk about a Mets fan– a NYC cop, no less!– arrested for sneaking down into better seats than he paid for. Great precedent setting, Mets!
Speaking of the Mets, Bill Lankhof of the Toronto Sun fills us in on just who the fuck we’ll be seeing playing on the shitty-looking fake grass at Rogers Centre this weekend.
Gregor Chisholm of BlueJays.com says in a notebook post that John Farrell intends on using Rajai Davis more often, as long as he continues to have a hot hand. Can’t complain about that, really.
Bluebird Banter passes along a plea from a reader for help to continue treatment for his 9-year-old cousin’s brain cancer, which I’m certainly not going to not pass along as well. Note: Apparently this guy was a fucking lying sack of shit.
Not Jays-related, but still good for a larf: Buster Olney of ESPN.com (Insider Olney) takes a look at A-Rod’s steep decline. HEYO!
Lastly, in case you missed it yesterday, during the middle segment of the Getting Blanked Show, Drew geeks out with Brandon Morrow, discussing his repe-twah with the Jays fireballer…
