sundaynight

Don’t you dare call it Sunday Night Baseball, this isn’t Puerto Rico in 2001. Yes, the Blue Jays and Padres will play a game at night on a Sunday in San Diego tonight, but it’s not of the ESPN variety. Nah, that stuff is reserved for the powerhouse clubs, like the Angels, Dodgers, and Cubs.

I’m not sure what will ultimately classify as ‘rock bottom’ when it comes to looking back at the 2013 Blue Jays season. Ramon Ortiz taking the hill while looking to avoid a sweep at the hands of the fucking Padres might be it.

Scuttlebutt

Jose Bautista was named the Honda Player of the Month for the Blue Jays, the club announced via a press release. Joey Bats in the two-hole FTW.

Josh Johnson used his rehab stint as an opportunity to try a new grip on his changeup, Gregor Chisholm tweets.

John Lott gives us the latest on Dustin McGowan, who holds a 9.00 ERA in six appearances with Buffalo.

More from Lott as he updates the latest line on Ricky Romero, noting that today’s no decision marks his first start at Triple-A without a walk.

  1. Beauty of a bunt

  2. Anyone who wears I love BJs shirts should be shot dead and pissed on. Don’t matter which order!

    • did your boyfriend pull his out of the closet tonight?

      I still need to upload the clip of some guy yelling at the camera in Tom’s Terrace in the skydome, ‘We love BJs’ as the camera rolls past them…golden.

  3. 1 for 18

    Cool

  4. I guess Bautista ended his 0-15 or whatever

  5. holy crap JP is awful ! We should trade him for a defensive catcher OR at least drop him down to 9th in the order

  6. JPA

    4 strikeouts
    CLUTCH

  7. Golden Sombrero

  8. UNSWEEPABLE

  9. Snoop a Loup…

  10. Call me crazy, but I’d like to think that the team did their best to win the game for Ortiz.

    • I was thinking that too. Ortiz has hung in there the best he could and is reportedly a great guy. Why wouldn’t they try to reward that by taking him off the hook for the loss?

  11. I have been waiting for tonights game of thrones episode for about 4 years.. At least. Holy Fuck. I drank a 2-6 for it. Yay, Jays win.

    • Yeah, i was going to wait til the end of the season to watch all the episodes but gave in last week.
