I'd be surprised if Carrera were faster than Pompey, though he's more experienced and has hit better this year. The Blue Jays weren't very keen to have Pompey hit or play the field in September, but I'd bet on him as the designated runner.
between him and Scioscia
The Red Sox didn't beat the Blue Jays (who had a rather remarkable victory of their own).
<span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=John+Farrell">John Farrell</a></span> is no longer managing the Blue Jays (except perhaps in his nightmares.
Aaron Loup is more likely to replace or rescue Janssen in Toronto. Santos is perhaps the least probable choice at the moment.
No. 35, Emilio Bonifacio, please check team.
Pillar looked awful at the plate even against a leftie but his good throw did get a runner at home in a one-run game. Not so bad.
If Ricky Romero gets free eyeglasses for life -- and he might need them to find the plate right now -- it has nothing to do with the Canadian health care system. How hard would that be to check?
Yes, Canada is different from the US in general, just as parts of both Canada and the US are different from each other. And Toronto is a lot more like Minneapolis than New York is like West TX. I read Baseball Prospectus to learn about baseball, not stupid stereotypes. Enough already.
ad nauseAm ... Prospectus is a Latin word too, so I hold you to a higher standard than usual ....
Edwin Encarnacion has a reputation as a decent base runner; perhaps this is not deserved. I see that he's also regarded as a defensive liability at first base this year, with quite a few FR below A. I watch most Blue Jay games on TV (and some in person) and he LOOKS OK to me: soft hands, decent around the bag. Is his range suspect? It was his throwing which made him such a butcher at third base.
I'm not an American (unlike David Roth): it's the Calgary Stampeders.
Excellent piece. One quibble: the Pedro Ramos I remember from my misspent boyhood as a Senators' fan was a starter, as proud of his foot speed as Goose was of his fastball. He became a reliever only later (with the Indians?).
Don't the Blue Jays share the Rogers Centre with the Toronto Argonauts football team (at least)?
Didn't Houston play in Toronto just this past weekend?
THanks for all this.
Podsednik now with Toronto.
I don't think most of us who watch the Blue Jays regularly think as much of Fred Lewis as an outfielder as you do.
Horribilis, not horribilus.
I don't understand the comment about the Jays not having a lefty in the pen or the rotation.
Thanks, One Flap Down. As you know, there is some question about the actual perpetrators of that outrage. In any case, the logic seems odd to me: one could argue that one terrorist act, the bombing of Gaddafi's home (and the murder of his daughter), led to another, the Lockerbie murders. Let's stick to baseball.
Given what later events? Or do you mean that the US and its allies has bombed a lot of people since and isn't about to apologize?
Very interesting. And almost as interesting (to a Blue Jays fan) as the fact that Toronto has had so wretched a season despite fielding players ranked 4 and 5 in WARP3 and two others (Lind and Hill) who have played well too.
The plural of \'apparatus\' is \'apparatus\' (with a long \'u\'), not \'apparati\'. You\'re welcome.
Wasn\'t Alvin Davis with Seattle in 1984?
