Are you f-ing kidding me? Four hits in 9 innings? Once again we were forced to sit and watch the jays throw away another pitching Gem from Roy Halladay. Its almost as if the jays jumped into a time machine and travelled back to 2008. Next time someone's at a game make sure you let the players know that they are playing for Cito "F-ing" Gaston and not John Gibbons. Im still baffled as to why they sent Snider down and not Wells or Rios. I mean at least Snider hustles. It may not be much but it gets other players moving. Im kinda hoping (well dreaming) that the Jays can unload Well's mammoth contract at the trade deadline or even this offseason. Yet there is HOPE! Maybe just maybe Snider will be able to get his timing back in AAA, until then Hill will have to continue to carry all the dead weight on his back.

I know, i know that we're only 44 games into this young season but WOW! If anyone said that they had seen the jays emergance coming this season, feel free to call them a liar. Im very impressed with what this team has been able to accomplish thus far. The biggest suprise to me has been the instant success from Lind and Hill on the offence and Romero and Tallet on the pitching side. It seems as though Aaron Hill has crawled back from the dead after an injury filled 2008 campaign. I wouldnt hesitate to call him one of the best all around second basemen in the majors today. What boggles my mind is, what did Scutaro do in the offseason? When J.P. signed this guy a few years ago i was under the impression that he was supposed to be a utility guy and an injury fill in. This season he has single handedly solved the bluejay's woes at the shortstop position. But what about Justin Jackson you ask? Well from what i've heard, he's still a few years away from seeing any time in the major leagues. Could this mean that J.P has finally shut his constant revolving door at SS? Well hold your breath on that one folks. Its been a gas thus far tho.
