The Captain




Nick Leyva just tapped that ass. Literally. A pinch-hit, game-winning home run by Rod "The Bod" Barajas. In the city that hates him. That's why he's The Captain ...


Marco Scutaro stole second base. On a walk. You had to see it to believe it. At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter whether Scoots is deemed an all-star or not. We know he is one. Check that; he's the best shortstop in the American League ...


Jeremy Accardo has been freed. He took the red-eye out of Vegas - I think we've all done that - Wednesday night, and picked up the save Thursday afternoon. Impressive; that flight's a bitch. Welcome back ...


The Jays went 0-for-14 with the bases loaded against the Phillies (thanks MLBastian), and left town with a sweep. Exactly how The Cito drew it up, B.J Ryan in a one-run game in the 9th (the fuck?), and all ...


After a decent series, the Vernon Wells Hatred Advisory System has been downgraded to HIGH. We can't be on high alert forever. That would be too Dick Cheney-ish. And that was one helluva catch in centre field in the bottom of the 9th. Anyway, V-Dub is going yard in Washington. I'm taking bets ...


Dustin McGowan may never pitch again. Immsense sadness is there.

Wells does look like he's on the way up: 6 for 16 with only(?) 3 Ks, but also only 1 double. The catch is the clincher in that last game. I want to see another solid series from him before I believe he's on track, but since you are measuring "hatred" the change is warranted. If you were measuring "ability" or "value", I might still hold off.

Can't get enough of that Scutaro. Is he our team MVP? So many deserving candidates (Lind, Hill, Cy Halladay) but he's got to be at the top of the list.

It's a new era! The VWHAS in high mode. I think this should be the default setting for the 2009 season.

Wells at High is an oxymoron since Wells are usually deep subjects. I hate the Phillies. Thanks for toasting them.

The Jays have two MVPs: Doc and Scoots.
