I believe I had that.
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.

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.

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.
I was actually at the game. The only good things about it were Sanchez bobblehead`s, and by the end of the game there couldn't have been 3,000 people left. It was easy to get out of the stadium and by the time I made my way down to my car the streets around the dome were mostly clear so got home pretty quick.

I just did sportnets top 40 jays. I think Delgado was number one. Delgado does not get the credit he deserve.For me Halliday was one of the most overated jays. When he was healthy he was amazing but he was injured way too much.

Halladay was a work horse. 4 out of his last six seasons here he had over 225 innings, once going up to 264. One year he had 140 innings and broke his leg on a line drive.
I would argue he was barely injured.

So we had Richard Griffin call Stroman out for essentially lacking leadership skills and here we have Stroman standing up, and rightfully so, for Osuna . Betances had no business being an All Star.

Ignore the trashy headline seems someone has it out for Stroman
