The beginning of an Era!  Vlad the Impaler arrives to drive a stake through the hearts of our opposition.  :D

Jays starter Matt Shoemaker, the teams best pitcher so far this season, will be out for the year.  Diagnosed with a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) or knee injury, Shoemaker was devastated at missing the season, a season of much success for himself being the Jays number one starter.

A huge blow for Toronto.  Who will replace Shoemaker? 

The Jays already have one other starter on the IL Ryan Borucki who is not slated to return until sometime next month.

Jays skipper Montoyo:
Quote
He was one of the best pitchers in baseball over the first month," manager Charlie Montoyo said. "Its a tough loss for us.

An upset Shoemaker:
Quote
The biggest thing is its frustrating," he said. "I can deal with this stuff. I know I seem pretty upset right now, which I am, but Ive had bumps in the road before and Im just going to fight through it. Thats just who I am. Its just really upsetting right now."

Oh, crap.  There will be no Vlad in the lineup as reported.  Turns out it wasnt legit.  Eventually but obviously not now.

The Leafs brass is very very happy to hear this, and is looking forward to the attention this will garner.

Haven't watched much since the early 90's.

Ben Revere, remember him?  Signed a minor league deal with the Jays.
