I love how absolutely nothing is a penalty.

Ryu goes 7 shutout innings and the Jays finally get a 7 inning outing out of a starter.  2 innings away from a postseason berth

I miss complete games. They seem as frequent as no hitters these past few years.

When do we get to discuss Thornton signing with the Leafs for $750K?


Actually it?s funny I remember the speculation around here that back when he was in Boston he was going to end up being a maple leaf. Along with tony amonte and a whole bunch of other players I can?t remember.

I think the only year things went nuts for the leafs is when they got Peca, Lindros and Alison all in the same season. Of course we got the bizarro versions of those players but fun times nonetheless.

And that ends today?s edition of random thoughts that went nowhere.

I don?t know why we put ourselves through this year after year. I know it?s a message board and speculation is what we strive on, but let?s be honest with ourselves, other than Tavares, the top free agent just doesn?t come to Toronto.

Maybe I?m just getting old and grumpy, but using Toronto and negotiating leverage has just gotten tiresome for me.

I think the big determine factor for me would be what return you get for the guy we send out.  If we are getting pennies on the dollar on the trade I don?t think it is worth it.   If we get fair value for say Nylander then that could be a good piece coming back plus some prospect depth.   I mean if we get a second good defenseman to add to Pietrangelo that does become very enticing

If Kapanen was worth a first you?d have to think Nylander will command a significant haul.

I haven?t been watching any of these bubble games, but I put on game 6 And watched it for a bit and my god is this boring.

I recently watched the birds of prey movie, I had no expectations, and, it?s not that great of a movie. If you enjoy the ridiculous than this movie is for you.

However, I?m a Ewan McGregor fan, and appreciate his acting skills, but when is he going to learn that he cannot pull off an American accent.

I made the mistake of reading the comments over at Sportsnet with this article and you?d think this trade was Rask for Raycroft in how badly the leafs did in this trade.

Guerrero reminds me of Bautista, during his last year with the jays.

Memory is a strange thing, I remembered Boudreau as being a D man alongside Randy C.  May have been getting the Benning thing mixed up. So Boudreau would be coming in as an Offensive coach..Ok now I get it. Up to Keefer of course.

It’s before my time but wasn’t Boudreau a forward?

This jays team reminds me of when homer was given the Denver Broncos

I have to admit I don’t feel confident about this series. I feel Columbus will be akin to the early 2000s leafs against the senators.

I’m not to fussed about this, but I have been thoroughly unimpressed with Guerrero. I know he’s still young but he doesn’t appear as someone who is taking the majors seriously.

In any case, it’s hard to get too worked up because I don’t consider this a real season, and I’m not even sure they’ll complete the 60 games.
