Donaldson is MVP-tier again.

Aaron Loup is called in to pitch against a left-handed batter.
As usual, he blows his assignment and gets the hook.
+1

Separately, very pleased with the contribution Chris Rowley has provided in his two starts. Hard to ask for more from a minor league call up. Although he walked five today, damage was kept to a minimum.

At the game today, JD really brought the rain inside and outside.Smiling Face With Open Mouth

For the first time this season the Jays are tied with another team for last place in the ALE.
JB, Morales and Pearce need to step it up on the road if this is to continue and keep within striking distance, really hope Travis and Sanchez come back soon.
Lots of times still left.

Loup has been decent the last three weeks, got squeezed yesterday and don't why he was pitching for the 3rd straight day today. Also can't understand why Gibbons keeps bringing him in against lefties and when obviously he hasn't fared well against them.
Numbers close to Cecil this year for a lot less. Wish Joe Smith was back though.

If the Blue Jays sweep the Cubs during this series, they will be back to .500 by the end of the week. If they have 5 to 6 wins next week, then the Blue Jays will be contenders.Smiling Face With Sunglasses Keeping my fingers crossed.

Osuna not available today due to a fever.

Also, Barnes and Leone not available due to recent workload.

Since joining Cleveland, Elite Sidearm Guy (Joe Smith) has lowered his ERA to 2.84 on the season. 6 scoreless innings pitched, .111 batting average against.
Osuna's ERA is 3.12 on the season.

Tepera and Leone have similar looking pitches. Smith is unique in the way he throws pitches effectively with a sidearm delivery.

Also Ryan Goins has only 5 fewer RBIs than Bautista this year despite Ryan Goins having 160 fewer plate appearances than Joey Bats.

Jinxed...we need to get on a long winning streak to even think that... 5 or 6 games at least...sick and tired if these 3 to 4 game win streaks

Rather have many 3/4 game win streaks. The long ones 8/10 are followed by losing records normally. Just ask KC and the Mariners.

They want him to play a lot down the stretch to see if they want him back next year.
He can't play, he is bad. SIt him before he blows some more games. Can't Gibbons see that. Cito could, remember him not playing JPA and Snyder because he knew.

Yea I've seen enough of Refsnyder, Goins gets to one of those bloop singles and maybe it's a different game. He might have also gotten to the Baez single up the middle.

Exactly, Goins is the number one defender...and is amazing at the plate with RISP. There is no logical explanation for putting either of those two ahead of Goins. If Gibby wants to alternate between Barney and Refsnyder, that's fine. But Goins has to be out there everyday.

Just driving me crazy playing Rufsnyder. Even going back a couple of months back could never understand why he was playing Barney.
