Two straight convincing wins over the Yankees.  Feels good, .......feels real good!  :)

Snider is looking quite good in his return to the big club.  Hopefully Thames is okay.  Has anyone heard what was wrong with him last night or if he will be out of the line-up for any time.?

Just some dehydration.

really?  I didn't expect it to be something like that.  Then he should be back in for today's game, I would expect (?).

Thanks.

Might have been the big crowd... Might have been the beautiful day... Or more likely, the fact that I haven't been to another cities' ballpark but I really had no complaints about Rogers's Center as a place to enjoy a ballgame. The family and I just had a great day yesterday (in spite of the loss.) The Jr. Jays stuff was great.  Watching my kids run the bases was awesome. I wish I had done that as a kid. Don't like the food prices? How does $1.00  hot dogs, 50 cent waters and free ice cream grab ya? - No, those prices are not just for the kids. The kiddies got a couple autographs, did all the events and had a blast. If you have little ones, I highly recommend Jr. Jays Saturdays.

Likewise I had a pretty good time at the game yesterday. 45,000+ in the house made for probably the best attended Blue Jays game I've been to in at least 10 years.  A little disappointing that the split was, I'd guess,  50/50 for Jays and Yankees fans but better than being with 10,000 Blue Jays fans I suppose.

Now if they'd just get rid of that G/D carpet.

Yeah, I was on the field yesterday obviously and I have to tell you, it doesn't even feel like grass.

It's still better than the foam-rubber they used to have down there.

So much for winning the series. Jays settle for the split after winning the first two games.

The Jays are 10 games behind first-place Yankees for the wildcard spot.  They'll need to win a substantial amount in order to have any hope of catching up to not only the Yankees for the wildcard, but also the Bosox for first in the A.L. East, a tall order, indeed.  Not impossible though, but difficult.  Not that I'm expecting them to actually make the playoffs, but to come close, say 5-6.5 games out of a spot would indicate a somewhat substantive improvement at least.

Dear Mr. Anthopoulos,

Any time one of the guys you added to the team wants to start playing well would be just fine with me,

Sincerely,

A Blue Jays fan

Congrats to Jason Frasor on becoming the all-time leader in appearances in Jays history.  I didn't know he was so close to the feat until it was being mentioned quite prominently last week. 

He's had his ups and downs, but he has to have been doing something right to be the current longest serving Jay. 

I find that baseball trades, particularly when it deals with prospects and/or castaways, are ones you don't really put much thought or emphasis into until you look back on them 3, 5 even 10 years down the road.  Didn't realize the Jays picked him up from the Dodgers for Jayson Werth.

I guess it speaks volumes about our collection of CFers when Snider finally gets a crack.

And down one to Seattle already, a team that has scored what, 11 runs in its last 9 games?

Hopefully that run is it and Jays don't act as slump busters.
