2013 Toronto Blue Jays Photo Day

Sean Nolin takes the hill for the Jays tonight, making his Major League debut and hoping to fare a little better than Kevin Gausman, who made his far-more-heralded debut for the Orioles in last night’s Jays win. It’s… uh… yeah, another win would be nice.


Earlier today, to make room on the roster for Nolin, the Jays– rather than D’ing Ramon Ortiz FA– placed Darren Oliver on the 15-day DL with shoulder soreness, and moved J.A. Happ and his injured knee to the 60-day DL (meaning the earliest he can return is July 7th). Oliver’s stint is retroactive to his last appearance, which was back on May 19th.

Speaking of Happ, Chris Toman tweets that John Gibbons says the left-hander’s head is fine, but that he’s waiting on a brace for his knee, which has kept him from being able to throw since the incident in Tampa.

Mike Wilner tweets that Nolin will wear number 35 tonight.

Tim Micallef throwing out the first pitch. Nice!

Jose Reyes running? Jose Reyes running. Fuck yes.

No, seriously, junior hockey?

  1. You are so awesome! I do not suppose I’ve truly read anything like that before.
    So good to find somebody with some unique thoughts on this issue.
    Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This website is something that’s needed on the internet,
    someone with a bit of originality!

  2. Blame that halfwit AA.

  3. I wouldn’t mind the both of them getting fired (AA and Gibby)

  4. Troll another one

  5. How’s things down there?

  6. You’re a real mental midget, aren’t you?

  7. Don’t be stupid. Most other fanbases would kill to have AA.

  8. Yeah – he took a team that had NO chance last year…and then in the space of one off-season, made them competitive.
    He did what a GM should do…upgraded most positions and hopefully, give the team a chance to win. The rest of it, unfortunately, is up to the players to perform.

  9. Professional Commenter Medoza’s Line drops another steaming pile of #REALTALK into our collective lap.
