Sweep Threat: Jays @ Astros

It could happen. This is your game threat.

If the Blue Jays get swept by the Houston Astros then I’m gonna club this here baby seal. Game threat? You’re looking at it.

Let’s hope Wang can measure up tonight.

Toronto Blue Jays v Baltimore Orioles

How many R.A. Dickey knuckleballs will the great Josh Reddick hammer towards King Street today? Seriously, this is your game threat.

Boston Red Sox v Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays send Mark Buehrle to the mound this afternoon, looking to bounce back from a 14-6 loss to Josh Reddick last night. I got nothing.

Scuttlebutt

Josh Johnson has cleared waivers and is eligible to be traded. However, Johnson being traded is a rather unlikely scenario seeing how he’s been nothing short of a disaster this season. Wait for it, that qualifying offer is coming this winter.

John Lott notes that Juan Perez is hitting the DL with ‘arm pain’.

Scott MacArthur tweets that Mickey Storey has been called up in Perez’s place.

Gregor Chisholm writes that J.P. Arencibia will avoid a DL stint.

Mark DeRosa stays… something something intangibles.

MLB: Houston Astros at Toronto Blue Jays

The threat here is that the Blue Jays are at risk of being swept by this shit-pile of an Angels team. At least Mike Scioscia is running out a lineup made almost entirely of 4-A players. For the love of Delgado, can we get out of this weekend with a win?

Mark Buehrle is charged with the responsibility of putting a stop the bleeding, and seeing as he’s made two great starts in a row, he’s probably our best bet. You can’t predict baseball.

We’ll skip the scuttlebutt section for today, as Stoeten has it covered with posts on the Steve Delabar/J.A. Happ situation, and a load of insanity via Nick Cafardo.

Somebody’s going home with 51 wins tonight. Whatever the opposite of immaculate is, let’s go with defective, that’s what Steve Delabar turned in last night in the Jays’ collapse versus these southern California shitbags. There’s no point in dumping on the ‘Bar, though. The Blue Jays as a team have given notice to Toronto’s Raptors and Maple Leafs… ‘nobody loses hard than us’.

Here’s to Esmil Rogers bouncing back from his 10-hit, 8-earned run stinker versus the Athletics, and to Maicer Izturis in the two-hole.

Scuttlebutt

Gregor Chisholm, among others, gives us an update on Josh Johnson in a series of tweets. He’s dealing with some knee issues, but remains on track to start Tuesday.

Brad Lincoln is back, and he’ll make a start next week.

J.A. Happ is getting closer to returning to the Blue Jays.
