Walk-off times two
Last night it was pitcher’s duel, and tonight it was what could only be described as a “hitter’s duel”. The lead changed many times, there were 19 runs and 31 hits in total. Sounds more like an All-Star game box score rather than a regular season matchup between the Jays and the Rays.
Watching the Rays win two straight walk-off games is incredibly deflating, but the Blue Jays will turn to Roy Halladay to make sure it’s not a sweep. Knowing how intense Halladay is about game day rituals, I doubt he will even come close to talking to any reporters tomorrow so he will be on his game no matter how many teams are “serious about trading for him“.
I noticed a strange trend in the last three series for the Blue Jays which could continue tomorrow – in each of their previous series against the Yankees, Rays and Phillies, the Jays have won the final game in the series. Coincidence?
Just a quick note, I’ll be heading on holidays for a couple of days and should be back by the end of the week. Considering how quickly things have escalated already this week, I hope that I don’t come back to find that the Blue Jays are completely in shambles. Because if that’s the case, I might need more than just a few days to deal with the news.
