JAYS ARE A MESS. TRADE STROMAN FOR DAVID PRICE.
You shouldn't be surprised that the Toronto Blue Jays are the poster boys for mediocrity this season.  Not after yesterday's game.   In fact, given the lack of production from some key players, a weak

NOT ALL GOLF COMMENTATORS ARE SEXIST PIGS.
When someone leaves a putt short, the cry "Hit it Alice" is a common refrain by other players.  It is NOT a sexist remark however.  Which makes it all the more ironic that the "Alice"

MUCH ADO ABOUT SANCHEZ, REYES AND THE JAYS.
Last year's late-season phenom, pitcher Aaron Sanchez, is coming back to the Jays.  Not right away, but soon.  Not as a starter, but in the bullpen.  For now.  Maybe.  Unless John Gibbons changes his mind.

KILL THE UMPIRE AND FIRE THE MANAGER.
I'm not sure who to dislike more.  Blue Jays manager John Gibbons or umpire Jerry Meals. Both of them made terrible decisions that led to the Jays losing and the mercurial Jose Bautista being ejected.

You shouldn't be surprised that the Toronto Blue Jays are the poster boys for mediocrity this season.  Not after yesterday's game.   In fact, given the lack of production from some key players, a weak pitching staff and a manager who makes egregious errors in the late innings, their record really isn't that bad.  But are they in a position to win even if they acquire that #1 starter?  Who knows, but I'd sure like to see them go "all in" for David Price.

When someone leaves a putt short, the cry "Hit it Alice" is a common refrain by other players.  It is NOT a sexist remark however.  Which makes it all the more ironic that the "Alice" being referred to is actually "Alliss" as in Peter Alliss, the 84 year old golf commentator for the BBC who was accused of making a sexist remark as Zach Johnson was about to win the British Open.  This from a man who once left a 3 foot putt short, prompting a gallery member at the Ryder Cup to yell out "Nice putt Alliss".

Last year's late-season phenom, pitcher Aaron Sanchez, is coming back to the Jays.  Not right away, but soon.  Not as a starter, but in the bullpen.  For now.  Maybe.  Unless John Gibbons changes his mind.  Or if the Jays acquire another starter.  Or a bullpen closer.  As usual, the Jays vision is about as clear as mud.

I'm not sure who to dislike more.  Blue Jays manager John Gibbons or umpire Jerry Meals. Both of them made terrible decisions that led to the Jays losing and the mercurial Jose Bautista being ejected.  And while many wanted to see the umpire get his just rewards, I'd rather have Gibbons out of the picture or else this season is lost.  Blame the pitching and blame the defense, but you also have to point the finger at the manager.
