Yeah… I got nothing. This is your game threat!
The future is bright.
Dyou gotta wear shades?
Nice! 7IP 1H 7K, take a seat Marcstro!
STUD. Way to bear down.
The Mariners obviously didn’t want to pony up dollars and/or prospects for a bigger acquisition. I consider that a bonus to the Jays’ trade chances.
that was a nicely timed hit, now he can still go out with the end of an inning and an out
He threw 115 in Oakland I think. He could’ve made it. Doesn’t matter now though
Maybe Fat Juan can hit for the cycle and we can rejoice in a different manner.
He actually kept the pitch count down that inning, so it’s not unreasonable for him to come out in the 8th.
Clearly I jinxed it. Shoulda stayed by the pool. :)
No sweat. Crack another beer!
Well, if I HAVE too. I HAVE too!
I blame ESPN. The moment they put it up on their front page, he gave up a hit.
Honestly everyone was overreacting about the possibility of him throwing 120, pitch counts are taken far too seriously.
Great performance nonetheless.
120 is fine, 150 not so much
How about we rejoice in the fact that the jays are about to take 3 of 4 from boston and that boston might throw in the cards and be sellers
Siddall made a good point. Pitch count is just a number and you do have to use it to an extent, but what you do is keep an eye on Stroman and his body, and he was cruising without many stressful pitches
I get what some of you were saying, but how can you root against a no hitter when it’s not ridiculously out of reach?
Spot on, AJ. People cheering against a no hitter clearly have no idea what an accomplishment it is.
goal of the season is win total, that is all
Wrong-o, Wiener-boy. 7IP, 1 hit is fine. But it won’t be remembered beyond today.
9IP, CG, SO, no-hitter is one for the ages. Stro not getting to throw more than 97 pitches today is garbage. Who would you rather watch, AAAA guys like Redmond throw frisbees, or your young thoroughbred continue to mow the Bostonians? I rest my case. Oh, and any ‘injury’ bullshit is the crystal-ball hypothetical Stoets always shits on.
Stroman should have got the 8th, and if under 115 pitches, the 9th as well.
I’d rather watch my team win as many games as possible
Will Gruber run onto the field to hug Juan if this happens?
Security would run him down
With tasers drawn
That, ladies and gentlemen, will be the last time Jeff Frye’s name will be brought up on a Jays broadcast…until someone gets close to a cycle again
Francisco just got a gift ball. He should be out.
Jays need some runners here, need another AB for Juan…
Well, as long as they get through the next two innings…
Well it was Francisco against a lefty. I certainly understand leaving Francisco in, but the odds of him getting a double were reduced.
All of you chumps who believe in the magic 100 pitch mark can suck it.
What is Goins on??
Goins is best!
Imagine a no hitter and a cycle in the same game…wonder what the odds are
Now that I saw the play, Gose probably should’ve took a dive for it… One thing about a lot of no hitters is they feature a spectacular defensive play (see Dewayne Wise in Buehrles)
Doesn’t matter now! Get the W!
FWIW, I saw Goins play with Buffalo recently and he looked comfortable at the plate.
Maybe this time will be different.
.767 OPS over his last 41 games at with Buffalo, covering 168 PAs. Not spectacular, not a huge sample, not against great competition… but he’s definitely hitting well lately.
Redmond with a 7 run lead – why am I nervous? FYRE GOBBLINAZ
Probably something to do with his 12.39 ERA….
Are you numerically illiterate or making a joke? I suppose anyone would be surprised that his ERA is as good as it is.
He came into the game with a 2.39 ERA which like you say, is surprising and very likely does not reflect his true talents but they way people have talked all year about him being a surefire way to get the other team back in the game is laughable considering the results.
I believe the term you were searching for there is ‘innumerate’.
It’s ok. I’m an accountant.
Innumerate! An awesome word!
Way to go Goins. Maybe coming in mid-season where his confidence is a little more pumped, and the pressure is much less, makes a difference for him.
This is the exact leverage situation where I want to see Todd Redmond appearances.
Todd Redmond has the lowest ERA in the bullpen out of any pitcher not named Casey Janssen.
You know, he wasn’t horrible even starting for us last year.
Husky Redmond to take us home.
I cant believe goins is doing so well. Wtf?? Stroman has been money. Too bad about that victorino hit.
No hitters over, but no more beer either. I’m thinking single malt on ice. Could be a rum though. ….nope. Single malt it is!
It’s been a good day for Pete!
Switched it up last minute and went for a bourbon.
Can you believe Redmond once started games for the Jays? The guy could easily get himself to 50 pitches in an inning…
and he was one of the better starters then, they were starting Laffey for fucks sake
I choose to forget the Laffey/Jo Jo Reyes eras, thank you very much.
what about the Chacin/Towers era? They lead the team in the all import Wins stat. Fuck scott downs apparently started 13 games that year, I don’t remember that
Why must you bring that up? It took me 3 months of therapy to get past last season.
Why anyone would be critical of redmond is beyond me….he has been perfect in his role.
What was critical about what I said? Guy throws a lot of pitches…
Guess it wasn’t exactly you,
but he gets alot of shit on here for doing a damn good job…
Love me some baby Buerlhe.
Much like the Happster.
He’s pitched well enough that he can be counted on in higher leverage situations, but he’s also perfectly able to mop up 3-4 innings in an outing if needed. He’s been a really valuable pitcher this year.
I thought esmil would be in, I trust him less than redmond
Remember that time Bogaerts was supposed to one of the best prospects in all of baseball and a can’t miss player?
He’s gonna be fine. The major leagues are hard. He was doing great until they resigned Drew and started moving him around.
Remember that time Bogaerts turned 22? I bet you don’t, since it hasn’t happened yet.
I was just speaking to the fact he was sold as a can’t miss prospect who will hit the ground running immediately.
Todd Redmond hasn’t given up an earned run since June 20.
In the month of July, he’s pitched 11 innings, striking out nine and yielding only 3 hits and 4 walks, for a WHIP of 0.64.
Shutdown Todd Redmond will take us home.
Francisco might get another at-bat.
Would they be able to find a sturdy enough cycle to pose him on if he does it?
Need more baserunners for another AB for Juan……
The cycle sounds kinda cool and all, but another bomb would be better than a double. Just kind of a novelty item.
Jeff Frye. I rest my case
Pretty drunk now. Time to float around on an inflatable raft.
Third base has NOT been kind to Melky today!
That out from Melky puts Juans chances of getting back up down a bit…
I think this is a perfect time to mention the Jays are now ahead in total runs for the series, 22-21!
Good thing you didnt mention it last inning!
I feel nervous even mentioning it now!
Dioner you fat shit smack one out!
Oh Happy Days are here again. GO JAYS! Fuck you Massholes!
Rasmussen? I forgot he was on the team.
Let’s bring this momentum to the Bronx and sweep those basterds!
Aaron Cibia doing his part to help the Jays out… he just homered for Texas! 3-2 Skanks.
did anyone notice that he currently only has one season were he finished with more walks that HR’s? I wonder what how many players have has season like that in the history of baseball
I just looked it up, apparently a lot, but most of them were hitting more than 30 HR’s a season, Juan Gon nearly had more HR than BB in his career
C’mon Nuke, just throw it over the damn plate!
This is Melky’s 4th 3-hit game in the last 6. Damn.
Question… Does Melk owe anything to the Jay’s for giving him a second chance.
Answer… Fuck yes
Did, not does.
Debt paid in spades.
cause no other team would’ve given him a chance?
Rassmussen has all the control issues of Santos, but at a fraction of the price!
This is the opposite of Razzmatazz.
They’re just getting Rasmussen to load the bases so Loup can come in and do his thing.
Rasmusssen = the next guy to be DFA’d.
Why are you warming up Loup Gibby it’s 8-0
Everything is way high in the zone.
Umpiring will never be cured
Nice pivot by Goins
Loup can sit back down.
I think MLB.com Gameday just broke because it couldn’t believe that second pitch was called a ball.
Wasn’t watching…what happened to Papi?
Check swing owie.
He hurt himself gesturing at the official scorer.
Fuckin’ A, boys!
What are the odds on Morrow making it back?
Happ as the long man? 6 man rotation? Who needs a FA SP?
Now to enjoy the day with that win in the bank
SOUND THE HORNS
BETCHA WISH YOU COULD HAVE SOME OF THOSE RUNS BACK FROM MONDAY, DONTCHA, MASSHOLES?
Things I love in no particular order:
BBQ’d animal flesh
Girls who love sports
Smashing the Massholes
Fell free to add your own:
Watching a playoff game in the 100 level with my 7 year old and wife.
I love beer.
The sound of laughing babies.
The smooth feel of a woman’s backside. Or your wife’s.
Get yer mitts off of Mrs. Smasher’s heinie.
As of last week, I have a new office mate. She is young, attractive, and a Jays fan. We just listened to the game together. This makes me happy.
Yeah, her hubby is going to have to go.
She just read this and now thinks your creepy
She does strike me as a good judge of character.
I hope you pound it.
The last time they won 3 in a row was when they started a 6 game win streak? Nice try try campbell, nice try
Wouldn’t the last time they won 3 in a row be the end of that 6 game win streak?
Math, it wins everytime
Or counting in crib…why isn’t a run of 4 in crib worth 6?
suck it farrell
It really can’t be repeated enough, especially considering the comments section during/after game one: the Jays lost the opener 14-1 and STILL outscored the Red Sox in the series.
I’m sure a lot of us would be ashamed if we re-read the comments on that one.
Please, please don’t get fucking swept in the Bronx again.
Don’t look now but Tampa is only 4 games below .500 and they get to host Boston next.
I mean, I’m pretty sure I’d still want Tampa to win out of those two teams, but Tampa is starting to get close enough to be worrisome.
worry about who is in front, not in your rearview.
Let’s go Mariners!
Rays were 14 games under .500 at one point. Eerily similar to the Jays last year, who were also both 14 under and 4 under .500. Look at how that ended.
Tampa is by no means an awful club, but I dont seem them sniffing playoffs. I suspect they will regress like the Jays did last year after their tear and finish with a similar record, maybe a bit better. Something like 6 games under .500, although I could see them also finish at .500 or a couple games over.
I’m pretty drunk now. Time to float around on an inflatable raft in the sun.
huge win to close out this series. Now win 2 out of 3 in the Bronx
Here’s a piece of good news: between today and September 10, Baltimore only has 3 off days.
And they only have 5 more the rest of the season.
When does Izturis come back?
Also…was Luis Perez really that shitty when he came back? He had been a pretty decent player until the injury.
never, Kawa is blocking him
I thought Macier was out for the season? Originally they said September, but then I thought they said his season was over.
Maybe I’m mistaken.
Earliest – 4months ( Aug 14 )
Latest – 6months ( Oct 14 )
OK it’s illegal prop bet time and coming up first is…. Cletus rakes for 12 or over dingers and over. 350 in August
