Jays pounded O's Mike Wright into submission tonight, that's what he gets for lipping off!  8)

Lipping off is a stretch, but I did enjoy the peppering.

Can we say the Jays offense is back yet?

Saunders 3 home runs and 8 RBI so far tonight...

He's having himself a season.

Also, looks like the Jays are now holding one of the wildcard spots. Been on a nice run since April ended.

Blue Jays downgrade themselves by activating Tulo and sticking him back at 6th in the order.

I personally havn't seen the "wow" in Tulo. Sure hope he finds his game in the up coming week. Time for another win streak.

Then I was thinking. Don't slide. Just run up to the bag. The infielder throwing to second will have to throw around you. Can't call an illegal slide for that.

I'm not 100% sure, but, I think that, as part of these new rules, players have to slide if it's going to be a close enough play.

I understand the spirit of the rule and I'm all for protecting players from concussions, but, clearly, there's still a ways to go for them to find the right balance here. The takeout slide is part of the game. You can setup the rules to allow it and protect the fielder at the same time.

The rule is fine but they aren't applying it with any common sense. The "absolutely no contact with the fielder" part is what needs to change. They need to allow some contact otherwise fielders will exploit the rule like what happened with Pillar.

Mets sign Reyes to a minor league contract. Rockies on the hook for 40mil, Castro seems to be getting lit up.

Say what you want about tulowitzki,  the Jays seem to be ahead on this one.  Still time for Castro I suppose.

I still think the team is going to regret moving Hoffman.

Hoffman and Castro. It wasn't a Reyes for Tulo straight up deal.

I think Hoffman was the most important Jays component for the Rockies to make the deal.

Yea, I think so too. But Castro is still a pretty nice arm. He's still only 21 and can throw 100mph.

There's a wacky ass strike zone going on right now.
