I'm heartbroken. Crestfallen even.

Ryan Tepera has taken Cecil's roster spot...scary knowing Loup is the only LH reliever now!

I had a dream that it was 3-0 Jays in the first then 11-5 Texas in the 5th...

If it's any consolation my dream to reality ratio is 0, so... there's that.

Can the Jays get any breaks in this series?  Jeez, broken bat hit ends up a liner right at Odor who doubles runner off third.  I remember in Toronto Rangers broke their bat on a hit and was an RBI single.  So frustrating.

What a difference a fair home plate umpire makes.

Nice to see Tulowitzki finally kick some ass offensively.

On the one hand the score is nice... On the other hand they are squandering too many chances....

I don't manager bash... But bringing in price now would be weird.

I think saving Price to backup Dickey in Game 4 would be the better way to go. But what to do with him already warmed up?

Give him a Coke and tell him to sit down?

That's my job already.

I really don't like how many baserunners they've stranded... Bautista and Encarcion need to step it up.

Lets start with a couple notable Jays firsts:

First time the Jays have ever won a playoff game while facing elimination.

Tulo is the first Jays shortstop to ever hit a playoff homerun.

I thought the Jays hitters were much more disciplined at the plate tonight compared to the first couple games. It helps that the home plate umpire was good for a change. The umpiring crew missed the balk, but other than that I thought it was a well called game.

Estrada pitched fantastic! He had all his pitches working and kept the Rangers hitters off-balance. You could really see guys like Fielder struggling to figure out what pitch was coming next.

Harold Reynolds is terrible! I could never stand the guy, but tonight he just took it to the next level. The guy doesn't have a clue about anything, but loves to hear himself talk. I groaned hearing his voice for Game 1, was happy that he didn't call Game 2 (believe it was Bob Costas) , but back to him for Game 3 tonight!

We stupid Canadians can't catch foul balls in the stands at games because we didn't grow up playing baseball apparently. Too busy spearing whales and building igloos I suppose.  ::)
At least Jamie Campbell fired back at him...

Larry Walker was great too: "I won 7 gold gloves. I think part of winning them was cause I could catch."


If anyone has that picture of Harold Reynolds beside the dog driving the car please post it...says it all!
