Yes, start everyone agaisnt them.



In all fairness, even with the best lineup out there they have had trouble scoring. Also, it's not fair to take it out of context as that particular lineup was on the 2nd game of a double header. As sad as it sounds, Scuttaro was also the team's hottest hitter.

Well 3 runs did it tonight... I swear to god if this team could score 4 runs a game they would be close to the division lead.

Geez... had both Burnett and Marcum going for me tonight. Combined 15.2 IP, 3ER, 7H, 3BB, 12K... and no wins :,-(
Can't complain about the line thought ;-D

Any starter is worth starting against the Blue Jays. Maybe they should trade for Frank Thomas.
:-D :-b ;-)

Can anyone actually make a sound statistical argument that keeping Frank Thomas was a good idea. I much prefer the Mench/Stairs platoon that the team will have going forward.

I would think twice about starting hitters against the Jays though.

I'm streaming Slowey tonight, I liked him in the preseason and the Jays can't score any runs.

At least BJ Ryan owners won't have to worry about any back to back save opportunities.

I LOVE the call on Asdrubal's unassisted triple play last night, it's on the Indians' home page...."The Blue Jays, desperate for some offense, just ran themselves into oblivion!" :-b I can't stop laughing!

Roy Halladay, one of the best pitchers in the majors over the past 6 years, is on pace to lose 20 games this year.

That best sums up just how bad the Blue Jays offense is.

Well if we had Frank Thomas (an .857 OPS hitter from last year), we could be playing Stairs and Mench in left field, instead of Shannon Stewart/Brad Wilkerson/Marco Scutaro.
