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.

Fell asleep at some point, what a snoozer for the Jays.

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.

Some call it an attitude problem others call it a hunger for playing time and wanting to win. Personally, as he's a 2 time All-star and an 1100 game veteran I tend to believe it's the later. Also, take what you hear from the Cubs side with a grain of salt as currently, they are a mess. BTW, Montero owned up to his comments and personally apologized to Arrieta.
I don't do downvotes.

Exactly, they had hashed it out after the fact. But for the Cubs, that was enough.

Jon Lester with a beauty today, allowing 10 runs in the first inning.

A mess, may be an understatement, for a defending World Series team.

Sounds like you had Lester starting on your fantasy baseball league this week too Ken lol. I don't know what was worse, Lester's two starts this week or the bluejays blow out lol

hopefully this organization is working over time doing whatever they can to bring the japanese "babe ruth" over next season. performances like yesterday aren't providing much of an enticement.

I don't think Rogers will spend the 100 million to bring him over here...if that happens our bills will go over the top...

Don't forget the Vernon Wells contract...

Otani ain't coming here...he's probably more suited to be in an NL ballpark.
Jays wont get involved in the MLB Posting process, thats for the rich teams that are willing to spend and make a splash, Yankees, Dodgers, Boston, Seattle with the asian connection..etc.

There were rumors we were in the running close on Darvish a few year back but thats about it.

he said he wants to hit and pitch so he's more suited to the AL with the dh. letting him play the field in the NL during his non-pitching days would be too much of an injury risk.
sure, it's a long shot (yankees are probably going to empty their wallets for him) but no harm making the best pitch for him. it would be marketing bonanza. if he lives up to his hype the whole country would be worshiping him.

We just signed a 16-year old Brazilian that can throw 94mph. 5'8" - wonder how much taller he'll grow.
