A Few Weekend Ponderings
Sorry this is so brief, but this post is coming to you from the BJH mobile blogging centre. Wow – what a weekend so far! Yesterday’s 8 hour affair was memorable for sure. I managed to catch a few innings on static-filled AM radio, but then the rains came in and I assumed that the game was called since nothing had happened for 3 hours. Then I drive home, and the Blue Jays still won the game! Incredible – it wasn’t exactly Scott Richmond’s best performance, but it still kept the Jays in the game long enough to get the bats going. There was also a very very rare bad appearance by the bullpen – not sure what was going on with Carlson/League last night.
Today’s 5-4 win was also another memorable game – Halladay had it dialed in all day long. I managed to catch the 9th inning, and what would have been B.J. Ryan’s second blown save of the week. Thankfully Jason Frasor came in to clean up the mess – I’m starting to rethink my evaluation of Frasor, he really is a great pitcher and has shown he has a lot of talent. I’m not saying he should be a candidate for the closer role, buy Frasor is no longer expendable in my mind.
Have a great Easter Weekend folks, and let’s celebrate this incredible 6-1 start!
