What is there to even say at this point? WIN A FUCKING GAME.

Scuttlebutt

Barry Davis tweets that Cole Gillespie is ailing, having hurt his oblique while swinging today. BUT WHO WILL PLATOON WITH LIND AND SUCK??? Davis adds that a DL stint might be possible, which… sure, gets some big league DL money before the inevitable DFA. Why not?

John Lott tweets a link to his great piece from the National Post on Dan Johnson, who awaits his turn in Buffalo, tearing up the International League.

Next game(s): Tomorrow, 3:35 PM ET @ Anaheim

  1. How in the name of cunt is mastrioanni still on this team?

    • Do these fucktards not have PAs that can tell them that they had these exact conversations for the last 4 fucking nights about Tampa Bay?

  2. Tabby to Tampa for fucking anything.

  3. Would love to see a peoductive out here. Anything but a DP

  4. Reyes!!!!

  5. Tabby just contradicted himself before he could finish a sentence. Brilliant.

  6. Runs! Well 1 anyway.

  7. Let’s have a big inning.

  8. Living by the homerun…these guys are so one dimensional

  9. “on the ropes” says Buck…..hahahaha

  10. can we get someone up in our bullpen? just sayin

  11. Sigh.

  12. Lets try to lay off the first pitch fella’s. FUCK see a pitch or two.

  13. Notice how you never hear them talking about Seitzer anymore? For a while there I thought Tabby was trying to hit that

  14. Kendrick takes 5 pitches in the strikezone and Dickey finally gets the k.

  15. holy shit reyes

  16. Beauty play

  17. Yay Reyes.

  18. Reyes has gotta make those routine plays

  19. Rosey gets to hack this inning.

  20. Beauty play. Boy he needed that

  21. Wow a hit and a nice play!

  22. As I had posted earlier .. And has thus far gone to my predicted form, the jays have scratched out some offense and dickey has been dominant

    But fear the 6 th for RA

  23. Tabby Buck stop with the fucking hexing

  24. I think Bautista may be on ecstasy, he keeps wiggling and sighing.

  25. Bautista.,..RE- the fucking- LAX

  26. Jbau didn’t like that bat eithe.

  27. Rosewood!!!! That’s not a double.

  28. Aside from beaner, are teetotallers allowed to comment on this site? I will try to remain positive about our boys by emulating my happy drunkenness.
    Get sober or die trying, maybe.

  29. The phone app that the fans are using is fucking with Buck and Tabby’s head.

  30. Does ERA Dickfingers make an appearance in the sixth? Stay tuned to find out!

  31. Spirit animal!

  32. The Milkman

  33. Just like Melky planned it.

  34. Fuck You!!!

  35. As much as I love Trout, that was fantastic.

  36. How much do I fucking love that!?!?!?

  37. Haaaaaaaaaaaaa, got Trout at third!

  38. Wow just wow!!!

  39. Melky has a little bit of that Cespedes magic working for him.

  40. Yowza!

  41. Take your .300 avg 80 hr’s 80 steals back to the bench son.

  42. These outfield defenders certainly are subpar

  43. If it wasn’t 1-0 I’d definitely say bring Dickey back out and remove him after anyone gets on base any way, don’t care

  44. KAWA-SAKI clap clap, clap clap clap

  45. Spirit animal x 2

  46. Mune Unit Saki is en fuego.

  47. Muni just doesn’t give up.

  48. Spirit Animal!!!

  49. Man this offense is unreal. In a bad way.

    Even the good players (Reyes, Mel KY, Bautista) jave looked like a completely different team the past few weeks.

    The difference between approaches is literally night and day

  50. can’t wait for a hit from Dickey’s personal….

  51. They are pressing hard at anything over the plate.

  52. Jose Reyes!!!!!!!!!!

  53. Sweetness

  54. Damnit Reyes, we weren’t done shitting on you yet!

  55. Hahahaha Reyes is back

  56. Reyes says ‘fuck you.’

  57. Reyes!!!!!

  58. Boy was that ever fucking needed.

    And if Reyes could start heating up, that would go a long way

  59. Where are the haters now

  60. What were you morons saying about Reyes?

    • I was saying that Reyes has looked like shit at the plate lately with a horrible approach.

      That is 100% accurate.

      Now let’s hope.he can build off a nice 3 hit game

    • His defense is brutal and his offense has declined. Tonight he hit a home run had a single and made a nice play. But you’re right, maybe we should rename young street Reyes blvd.

  61. Yeah, Reyes sure does suck… /s

  62. What was that Juan had in his hands?

    • Dunno but he sure is workin on stretchin out that back.
      He’s always movin but he seems to be focused on the back

  63. nice

  64. Don’t call it a comeback.

    He’s been here for years.

  65. there is a GOD

  66. Jose “Great defence and hits for power” Reyes

  67. How can a guy look so putrid for so long and then all of a sudden provide all of the offense and a couple of outstanding throws on D the next day?

  68. Please please please let this lead hold up

  69. Now Dickey can take the 7th

  70. I missed it but REYES!!!!!

  71. Man we need this win…let’s geter done boys.

  72. The Blue Jays are way too reliant on the home run.

  73. Just tuned in, first at bat I see is a Reyes homer. Think I’ll watch the rest of this game.

  74. Dicks is throwing a gem. 1 more and bring in the FUCKING CASE!

  75. Poop Holes.

  76. C’mon Dickey don’t star getting cute ou there.

  77. bring in santos to hold the lead

  78. If only Muni could keep this up that’d be awesome.

    I hate to say it but Mastro, it’s just not working out. I do have a soft spot for speedy/hustling underdog outfielders… And Joe Inglett. But it ain’t working. Has Pillar done his time? Can’t do much worse

  79. Oh right this is my first game ….I just meant they way that thing is moving tonight he just has to start it in the middle.

    • Just saying I’m pretty sure he’s not trying to be cute. He knows to challenge with a lead late. It’s not his first game either.

      • Just saying I hope he doesn’t come unglued in the late innings but hey Smasher he’s never done it before so your right I shouldn’t worry.

  80. Good thing Melky runs as well as he does or he would have had to catch that ball without tapping his glove on his thigh twice.

  81. Reyes has got a make that play

  82. Man I hope the weighted random number generator spits out some more outcomes that favor the Jays!

  83. Get him out now

  84. Is this Dickey being Dickey or did the rally monkey break out of the lab?

  85. Damn you, Rally Monkey Cowboy!

  86. nice!

  87. This would be where you take Dickey out. Why was no one warming up?

  88. If Dickey gets out of this it is because of Bautista’s leadership skills and dramatically indicating that Dickey only needs one more out. LeeDurShip

  89. To me, he’s earned the right to come out in the 8th.
    1 hit and yer pulled though.

    • He hasn’t earned shit after all the starts this year

      But he kept the 3 run lead so why the fuck not?

      • He was left to the slaughter in those games. Usually went walk, walk bomb, game over.

        I’m saying it’s dancing, he has a SO against one of the best teams in ball.
        Give him until one base runner gets aboard.

    • Yeah, your under 100 pitches and have a shutout going…..doesn’t matter if you’ve gotten “lucky” you’ve earned the right to keep pitching IMO

  90. Take that, Rally Monkey Cowboy!

  91. That’s a pissy Dickey.

  92. Jose cares not for your stinking shift.

  93. Bautista’s bat will live another day.

  94. Dickey made it out of the 7th inning! Wow!.

    Very impressed with Kawasaki & Jose Reyes tonight!.

    I didn’t realize that Jose was playing through a shoulder injury. Jose told Barry davis that he has been hurt since late may . Why didn’t the Jays disclose this information earlier?

  95. RRD – RBI Rosewood double

  96. I think that bat is safe from further assault

  97. This is the way we give up outs, give up outs, give up outs……this is the way we give up outs, all game long….

  98. Jbau wants to score

  99. Love how they’re talking about cole gillespies absence as if it’s some kind of major loss
