Most former Jays sucking in playoffs up to now. EE (batting .143), JD (batting 0.00 and 1 error) and Happ (22.50 ERA).
And Price (16.50), well nothing new here.

The one that surprises me the most is Happ. EE getting older, JD didn't play much this year at all and Price is Price. The funny thing I thought this would be Price`s year with the way he ended the season but some guys just cant handle the pressure. Go Jays Go

The extra rest could have messed with Happ's schedule.

I can't believe Colorado didn't go with their best pitcher Kyle Freeland today, which was standard four days rest for him since the Wild Card game. Now they are done.

I ended up buying the Toronto Blue Jays Buck Martinez "GET UP" alarm clock on ebay for $110.
It has two settings for the alarm. The regular ringing bells and a switch on the back to change it to the "Get up, get up ball, get up out of here, gone" sound byte.

Steve Pearce batted very well against the Yankees and BLOwsuna has pitched 2 1/3rd scoreless playoff innings in Round 1.

I just checked on ebay and they are going around that price. If he really did buy it for $110.00 he should be kicked out of Rfd. If he wishes to plead temporary insanity or his kid just had to have it he can stay. lol

I wonder if Cleveland is second guessing the Donaldson Trade? Go Jays Go

Meh, they didn't give up much. They didn't lose because of JD, they lost because the whole team (except Lindor) sucked.

However, if JD doesn't re-sign. That's a different story haha.

If JBJ drives in another 5 more RBI he might win ALCS MVP with a .200 batting average. Makes me wonder what the all-time lowest Batting Average for an ALCS MVP is.

It appears that Josh Hamilton won it with a Sub .200 average in 2010.
BA: .190, HR: 5, RBI: 9

We need to mention OBP for context. In this instance, your point stands.

But for example, Bregman's ALCS batting average is .000, albeit with a .700 OBP lol.

EDIT: Nevermind, that was excluding tonight's game.

...cause they don't want to pitch to Bregman, Bradley's .200 average is more indicative of his true BA - great centre fielder though
