Jays offense serves up a delicious BAS

A big thank you goes out to the Kansas City Royals because they just became the Toronto Blue Jays slump buster.
It was like a completely different team on the field last night – not only were the Blue Jays getting on base, but they were driving them home. What seemed like a foreign concept these past few games finally came around against the Royals.
First off, great for Lyle Overbay for snapping out of his mini-funk. Here’s my theory on the Lyle Overbay Hate-Fest in Toronto: the fans can’t boo Vernon Wells anymore, so naturally the next target is the slumping Lyle Overbay.
I would hardly say a two week slump from Overbay warrants being heckled as badly as A-Rod, but hey … it’s a free country. Personally, I think Overbay lost his mojo right after he shaved that epic trucker stache of his, but things seem to be back to normal … facial hair notwithstanding.
Jose Bautista did a great job of recruiting more BAS members with his two home runs and five RBI’s. Bautista wasted no time at all in those two at bats, swinging at the first pitch both times and sending them both over the left field fence.
Congrats to Brandon Morrow for picking up his first win of the season. After those first two shaky starts, I’ll admit I was a little scared that maybe Alex Anthopolous got the wrong Brandon back in that trade. However, like his counterparts in Shaun Marcum and Ricky Romero, Morrow flirted with a no-hitter late in the game.
So I guess the Royals were the cure for what ailed the Blue Jays after all. Bring on game two!
