What about moving Blackwell into Buntings spot?

Gausman was fantastic yesterday, so far no walks at all in the innings he has pitched.  It was a nail-biter finish as Romano was a little shaky for the first time in long long time, but he got the job done.

We seem to be getting really good pitching outside or Ryu who is on injured list.  Ryu sort of reminds me of Muzzin, perhaps his best before date is expired.

I remember Guy speeding down his wing always with his hair streaming behind him.  Great player. RIP.

Can anyone confirm if Matthews has jumped ship to Arizona because the Leafs couldn't hold off Columbus for the wildcard?

He's on the 3:10 to Yuma.
Getting his kicks on Route 66

I am pissed off about this.

Matthews makes it look so easy.
Muzz def looks off but that's why he's not playing.
I really like the Muzz but his best before date went up late last season.  Nice for him to relax with a tropical drink on Robidas Island.

When Keefe was asked about Jack's health he said he seemed to insinuate that he is not at 100% but was as good as he could be health wise for the playoffs.  I though that was a bit bizarre, so why not give Kallgren tonights start?

Good news, he should be helpful to the playoff push.  Hope he thrives over here.  Hope Kokkenen and some of the others follow.

My cousin was an undercover British officer in Belfast.  He fell in love with an Irish girl and they got married in a bunker surrounded tanks and a squad of soldiers. He was one tough bastard.

I just finished marathoning "The Thing About Pam" over the last two days.  I thought it was brilliant.
Rene Z was perfect!

Aw, damn.
Man, I was just thinking how much I enjoy him calling the game yesterday. Ugh, brutal. Hope he gets better.
Buck is a Blue Jay institution, a great catcher, remember when he broke his leg defending the plate and does a great job with the mike.  My prayers are with you Buck.

If Jeff Nelson sounds familiar he was the home plate umpire in the Jays series against Kansas City where he screwed Ben Revere
It works in Tennis, these umpires are so off most of the time, keep them there for show and history and some on field rulings but let the computer systems call the strikes.

Just reading an update on PPP about the Marlies and really found it lacking on a lot of levels.  It mentions that Christopoulos is gone as back up goalie, but not if Woll is better now.  Who is going to back up Hutch for the playoff run?
Also mentions that Ovchinnikov has had a fantastic debut with 2 goals in his first few games but there is little to no information on which of our other draft picks or any of them will be joining the team.  What about Holmberg, Rindall,  Kokkonen,  Topi or Hirvonen?   They have 8 games to go and are not a playoff lock by any means. 


Holl takes a turn in the press box, 4th line continues to shuffle, and Campbell confirmed to start.

About time they sit Holl.
Ya, staple him to the press box and Abruzzese should be on the Marlies now.  Bring up Steeves and Robertson.

Jays already using their 5th catcher tonight.  I get reading McGuire and getting something for nothing.  I don’t understand having Collins on the roster but having to call up Heineman to catch.
Collins has proved to be a waste of space, Heineman we need some more samples, but why is Moreno not up and fulfilling his destiny with all our other young players.  I don't understand Collins at all.
