It’s pretty inevitable that there’s going to be a bit of a dump taken on Aaron Cibia today, but before that gets out of control, a few quick points on the game:
- The passed balls are a lot less costly when they don’t immediately follow a walk. A free base is one thing, but a guy getting all the way to 2nd without swinging the bat is something that can’t happen three times a game like it did last night.
- When the highest WPA comes from a guy that goes 0-for-2 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch it is pretty clear that the bats just didn’t show up.
- The Jays only run actually dropped their WE% more than any other play in the game besides the Asdrubal HR.
- Bonifacio and Arencibia recorded the only Jays extra base hits.
- The 5-6-7-8 hitters combined to go 1-for-14 with one walk and one 2-out hit in the 9th.
- Melky Cabrera hit the ball well. A hard-luck line-drive DP and a frozen rope single in his first two at-bats.
- There’s another game today! Ubaldo Jimenez vs Brandon Morrow.
