Game over already and it is only the 2nd inning.

Mike Bolsinger, more like Bowelslinger is warming up.

Sanchez blister is back? No comeback here if we keep trying to swing for the fences

Hindsight is 20 20 but it now looks like the wrong decision to get Sanchez a start before the All Star break

I'm not trying to make excuses for Sanchez, but there were many really good pitches that were called balls.

But my main point is why the hell does Gibbons choose Sanchez to give Montero the game to catch. It's Sanchez's first game back, give him Martin, someone he's familiar with and someone that knows Aaron's stuff.

Assuming 90 wins get you into the playoffs, the Jays need to go 50-26 (.657) ball to reach 90 wins. If 88 wins is the bare minimum to possibly force a one game tie breaker for the final wild card spot, the jays need to go 48-28 (.638).
In 2015 the bluejays went 37-13 in 50 games around the same time of the year so here's hoping they can tap into some of that mojo to really get back into this thing.

I guarantee that this year's BJs will not make the post season.

I agree, I don't think the Jays will make the post season. Far too inconsistent in wins.

There needs to be a mercy rule in baseball. These 15-0 games are just pointless for anybody to watch.

You are right! And on top of that, the home team should hand out free food/drink vouchers, 50% off coupons for merchandise and free tickets to another game. Seriously ticket and parking prices being what they are, I'd be pretty pissed off if I paid to watch this debacle.

Montero is this year's Melvin Upton. Attitude issue and can't catch, can't throw out runners and can't hit here either.

How can Joe Biagini be a major league pitcher? The dude stinks as a starter and is even worse as a reliever. This guy looks like an employee from your local Taco Bell. This team stinks.

19-1 :rolleyes: .

Carerra saved the Jays from a complete shutout.

The Jays have Mike Bowelslinger and Joe Biagini.
Meanwhile, Jason Grilli has pitched 2 shutout, hitless innings and struck out 4 batters since beign traded to the Texas Rangers.

The Jays thought Grilli was done and now he is looking a lot more reliable than more than half of the Jays' bullpen.

Montero is also the guy who complained about his lack of playing time immediately after the Cubs won the WS. He'd better do it with the bat, cuz he is a terrible catcher and worse clubhouse guy.

I believe I had that.
