Travis Snider’s Second Wind
Much like the testosterone supercharged males who counted down the days to the Olsen Twins 18th birthday, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the return of Travis Snider. Now the time has finally come for the Big White Pasty Hope™ (h/t Tao of Stieb) to make his way make to Toronto. Snider was called up today and will suit up for tonight’s game and will play in right field against the Red Sox.
In a very perplexing move, the Blue Jays decided to demote Joe Inglett. I say perplexing because he’s hit .289 since returning from his first stint in Las Vegas. On the other hand, Kevin Millar has somehow survived being sent down to Triple A even though he is hitting .182 over that same period and just .231 on the year.
The justification behind leaving Millar on the roster doesn’t even make sense defensively because if the Blue Jays continue to platoon at first base, then Randy Ruiz would fit in nicely thus eliminating the need for Millar.
Regardless, we’re glad to see Travis Snider back in a Blue Jays uniform and I hope tonight is a very successful homecoming party for him.
