  1. i just sneezed and shit my pants

  2. I swear, if the Jays won the World Series, JC would consider it a setback because it would “deceive people into thinking this was a good team.”

  3. I’m so glad AA picked up that pitcher in the off season. Mathis is amazing.

  4. Remember when all the “prospects or bust” fans were calling the “get a free agent starting pitcher” fans like me idiots in the off season?

    Welcome to your plan fulfilled guys.

  5. This goes to show how much of being an effective pitcher is between the ears. If there’s nothing physically wrong with Romero – and it appears that there is not – it’s his head (obviously) that’s way out of the groove.

    For the last several weeks, I’ve thought about Shaun Marcum every time Rickey is about to take the mound, and what he used to say. “Pitch like a man.”

    Romero’s been pitching like a wounded little boy. C’mon Rickey! Pitch like a man, ffs.

    And maybe read that book that Aaron Laffey has talked about.
