Ricky of The Year

First off, thanks to Matt English for giving us permission to post this movie poster. Of course, Matt is the mastermind behind the Blue Jays comics which you will often find over at Drunk Jays Fans.

Unfortunately for Romero, although his 11-7 record as a rookie is worth salivating over, his last six starts combined have been less than memorable. A 1-3 record combined with a 6.32 ERA since August 2nd all point towards a second-half slump that Romero has had trouble shaking as of late. Some have suggested that he tends to get himself very worked up and nervous in high pressure situations, which makes a lot of sense because those last six starts have come against the Yankees, Red Sox, Angels and Orioles.

In other Blue Jays news, Jeremy Accardo was finally emancipated from Las Vegas once again as the Jays announced that Accardo, David Purcey and Kyle Phillips would join the 40 man roster. What – no Brian Dopriak? Stoeten offers his reasoning for the Blue Jays leaving him behind, but it’s just another notch in the belt of roster omissions and mistakes this team has been subject to in 2009.


Maybe we’ll get to see a few of the new Blue Jays in action when they take on the Minnesota Twins again later tonight. Stop by The Score liveblog as I’ll be your host and we can all vent together.

    Pretty sure it's time to play the call ups. Wins don't matter to me as much as getting a look at how Purcey etc have developed…

    I think I heard that Purcey will start sometime this weekend. If he walks more than five batters in his start, then we can safely say he has not made much progress this year because that is what has plagued him all year long.
