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… er… Afternoon Hangover… er… links!!!
Not a whole lot going on this afternoon. Not a whole damn lot at all. Unless you actually want to talk about the series that the Jays just finished with the Mariners, which… why the hell would you? So… here’s… whatever’s here…
In a notebook post at BlueJays.com, Gregor Chisholm passes along the latest on Edwin Encarnacion’s wonky ankle, which will be keeping him at DH for the time being, and the fact that the Jays may really, seriously, be considering moving to a six man rotation, for some reason.
In his latest fortnightly infographic at Getting Blanked, Craig Robinson of Flip Flop Fly Ball looks at position player WAR throughout the Majors to this point.
Over at Baseball Prospectus, Ben Lindbergh wonders about the insight of Gregg Zaun, who expects big things from Jeff Mathis, who has had his offfence unleashed now that he’s away from the defence-first Mike Scioscia.
Mike Rutsey of the Toronto Sun looks at the reverse splits of the newest Jay, Steve Delebar.
Lastly, the Ack does some boat-rocking, as he begins to question the long-term vision of Alex Anthpoulos.
