When given enough rope …
I’ll stand by my belief that Brandon League should be used only in small doses, which is backed by a great article over at Batter’s Box. Shawn Camp on the other hand continue to be a pleasant surprise in the bullpen; three innings of scoreless and hitless relief was enough for Camp to solidify his place in the ‘pen as a reliable long relief man.
Scott Rolen could not have picked a better time to extend his 24 game hit streak. When he laced that single up the middle, a sound came out of my mouth that some would say is similar to what a middle-aged woman would sound like at a bachelorette party. At the time, I felt it was perfectly acceptable to scream at the top of my lungs.
It’s always tough to lose in extra innings, but it’s even more tough when you can go back and pinpoint key areas where the Blue Jays could have easily won the game. Better luck next time, I guess.
