Time to start EVERYONE against the Jays?

Postby tmlfan4ever » Mon May 12, 2008 7:56 pm

Seriously, it doesn't look like this team is capable of scoring ANY runs. I am starting everyone against them right now regardless of the situation until proven otherwise. What are the other teams to beat up on in "pitch or ditch" this year? Oakland at home used to be a safe bet, but they are finding ways to score some runs.

You know things aren't going your way when you line into an unassisted triple play.

I guess you also know when things ARE going your way (cliff lee).

They're getting pretty close to having scored one run in a four-game series. That's worse than soccer.

Yes. It really doesn't matter with this team, even the no-names they face look like Cy Young. Throwing a legitimately good pitcher at them is basically unfair.

Especially now with Vernon Wells' injury, it is probably a good idea. Like the Nationals, you should probably pick up just about anyone that is half decent if they are pitching against the Jays or the Nats.

Like I said, even the Triple-A guys you've never heard of usually look like Cy Young against the Jays. I wouldn't discriminate as much as you are. Anyone who's at least 10% decent is probably a good enough bet.

Agaisnt lefties, Marco Scutaro is their DH right now. They are starting 4 good hitters (Hill, Rios, Rolen, Mench), though two of those guys are in massive slumps. It isn't a fluke that they aren't scoring at all.

Yes, start everyone agaisnt them.
