Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

    I think the knocks on Vernon for that last ball are completely and totally ridiculous. That ball hit the wall. He’s not getting to that ball. Period. Either is Rios.

    I can’t remember which site I read it on (maybe the Score Live Blog, but somebody made the arguement that V-Dub should have been playing further back with 2 outs.

    If the ball dropped in front of him, then he has a chance to gun down Morneau at the plate – but if he plays it too shallow, then he either has to make the play off the wall or hope for a really really lucky bounce.

    Oh well, c’est la vie.
