OBVIOUSLY the second half of that headline is completely untrue and sensationalized and ridiculous. I mean, nobody would actually believe a single win in April somehow means more than a single win in a 162 game season.

But Rajai Davis gunning Manny Machado down at the plate is nothing if not awesome, as Machado represented the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninthtenth inning. Davis isn’t exactly known for his cannon but he certainly throws a strike here, getting the Orioles third baseman by a significant margin, prolonging a game the Jays would go on to win in the 11th inning.

  1. Beautiful. (not enough words)

  2. The only regrets I have here was that this was the goddamn getaway game and I watched the stealing of the Orioles magic on goddamn gameday mini at my desk at work.

    Anyway WE HAVE THE MAGIC NOW, ORIOLES.

    • it’s so sad that i watched the whole game on gameday and when ever a live look in came up it took me to the cleveland game or some other team’s game

      • On the other hand, what awesome, awesome things we have to complain about here in 2013

  3. Rajai is fucking clutch.

  4. “But Rajai Davis gunning Manny Machado down at the plate is nothing if not awesome, as Machado represented the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning.”

    It was the tenth, not the ninth.

  5. I was pretty sure I read somewhere that had the Jays had been swept by the Orioles that their franchise would have been revoked.

    Thanks Rajai.

  6. I can’t remember if he did that in the same game he made “the catch” last year, but he has gunned out guys at the plate from LF before. Rajai has some decent tools.

  7. It was the 10th.

    And it was faaaaaantastic.

  8. Maybe I’m missing the joke but isn’t that a picture if Yunel on the blog page. If that is Yunel, the photo has been altered because I don’t remember Yunel hustling that hard

  9. I was surprised Machado went down to slide as late as he did, but watching it a second time, he had virtually no chance to get around Arencibia there. He hasn’t entered the batter’s box by the time Arencibia catches the ball and JP has half of the plate blocked off with his foot – only place to go is the back side of the plate and that adds another foot to how far you’ve gotta go.

  10. Rajai Fucking Davis. Get D and speed. Fuck Colby Rasmus.
