Yeah, man, the Blue Jays demolished Hiroki Kuroda and the Yanks tonight by the tune of 8-1. It’s always amazed me how fly balls lift off in Toronto. The Jays hit four home runs and Kyle Drabek stifled the all-or-nothing Yankee offense. Yo, anyone else ready to seriously dislike the Jays? I am. Just something about the looks of the guys on the team. I don’t like ‘em at all.
This is a night we will not remember unless Robbie Cano’s 300th career double means anything to you (Cano did make a slick unassisted double play in ninth; he fielded a ground ball as he sprinted to second base, touched the bag and still running toward the Yankee dugout made the throw to get the runner at first. Poetry in motion.).
This one is already starting to vanish, tomorrow night can’t come soon enough and that’s the beauty of baseball–they do it every day. Sure, there is plenty of kvetch about (I get it, Phil Hughes starting isn’t inspiring you with confidence). I know, the Yanks have had a “m’eh” season so far. But soon enough there will be reason to cheer.
Count on it, True Believers.
