Same old Jays.


 

3-0 after 2 for the Rays. Reyes' injury is being descibed as hamstring tightness.


4-0 after 3 innings. Where's rain when you need it ?

Apparently Don Baylor just broke his ankle during tonight's " First Pitch " ceremony in Anaheim.


fromsbnation.com:

In one of the more freakish injuries to take place on Opening Day 2014, Angels hitting coach Don Baylor appeared to break an ankle while catching a ceremonial first pitch from retiring Angel Vladimir Guerrero. Guerrero, who hit .319/.381/.546 in six seasons in Anaheim, had signed a one-day contract so he could retire in an Angels uniform. His farewell pitch was in the dirt, and as the 64-year-old Baylor -- a career outfielder and designated hitter, not a catcher -- scrambled to corral the ball, he somehow snapped a bone in his right ankle. An attempt to walk it off did not go well.

Doesn't Baylor have bone cancer or something like that? I can see it happening with him having brittle bones .

Sabathia getting bombed. If this is the new CC permanently, and it very well could be, then I don't see how the Yankees can contend. You can keep your fingers crossed that either Tanaka or Pineda become a solid number 2 this year, and that's not too unrealistic, but it's expecting way too much to expect one to become a legit ace and the other a number 2, and that's what they need if CC is really done.

Come on now srossi - even if Sabathia pitched liked he did back in 2007 to 2010 there's no way the Yankee$$$$ can contend with that line-up.

Baseball replay doesn't work. Giants got a Diamondback runner out twice in one inning and he was called safe twice.
Called safe at first. Giants challanged. Replay takes three times longer than allowed. Replay shows he's out. Call is still out.
Later in inning same player is out at home plate but called safe. Replay shows put but Giants can't challenge.

Ron Washington (Rangers) has a nice little replay scam worked out already. He goes out to the umpire to 'argue'. Bench coach watches the replay and signals (thumbs up, thumbs down) whether or not to challenge.

And yes Washington has ran out on the field, argued the call, [received a thumbs down hand signal] and then didn't challenge the call.

Aint that some shit.

The lineup isn't bad at all.  Yesterday they sent out a very solid top 7 and you just hope you get more than expected from the other guys, plus you have Ichiro on the bench.  I'm not seeing how the lineup is going to be the problem, everyone is saying this team will score runs.

Ellsbury CF
Jeter SS
Beltran RF
McCann C
Teixeira 1B
Soriano DH
Gardner LF
Roberts 2B
Johnson 3B

All teams use that "scam". The manager comes out of the dugout & says to the umpire, "check out the hottie in the 3rd row". Meanwhile, the team's video coordinator checks the video & signals the manager to either challenge the call or
to let the call stand as is.

Lyle Overbay & Vernon Wells are gone. That's  a HUGE upgrade over the 2013 team.
Yeah, they're all a year older, but McCann & Ellsbury can't hurt.

Also saw where a pick-off call was close and the bench was signaling the pitcher not to get on the rubber until they could get a look at it on their own monitors. Once they did, they challenged, and won (the guy was indeed out, not safe as called).

If MLB didn't make contingency plans for these sorts of shenanigans then good on any manager or team that can make them work for now.
