    Maybe he can tap into GoGo's clutch.

    Even Goins made contact 80% of the time.

    The holes in Ngoepe's swing are, craters, to say the least.

    It might be folly, but I am almost ready to give up on Grichuk.

    Goins did make some minor improvements to his swing by choking up on the bat. When he first started with the jays, not only could he not hit a breaking pitch, but he couldn't catch up to a major league fastball.

    Any sort of adjustments Goins made impacted his performance for a short period of time. Goins was 25 when he was called up, Ngoepe was 27. Whatever their profile has been remains that at this point in time. Striking out 30%+ of the time in AAA with negligible power indicates he's worse than a less than adequate hitter.

    Gibbons has a little too much trust in his starters so far this season.

    MLB reviews make no sense. 2 reviews early in the year should fairly clearly been overturned but stood, that one was quite inconclusive but is overturned. I think it was fair but it was so close so have no idea how you can conclusively call it fair without a camera angle up the line. Especially in a world where Justin Smoak having his foot 3 inches off first base wasn’t conclusive in the Yankees series somehow

    That call went in our favour though. Smoak foot was very clearly off the bag but the out call stood. I was stunned. I said like not even a week ago their standard for overturning a call was way too high and now this. It’s less consistent than goalie interference if that’s even possible

    I thought the Smoak one was hilarious, but this one was definitely the right call.

    Tied for your Jays leader in homeruns... Diaz?

    I mean I knew he could hit homeruns, and it’s only 3, but not this often

    To me that call was completely inconclusive so the call on the field should have stood. One angle looked fair and the other foul.

    Also, when did Luke Maile learn how to hit?

    OT: David Price got pulled due to tingling in hand...must be from all that heavy coin lifting and jingling during the off-season. :sarcasm:

    Still no update, but it does appear that postponing the game is a real possibility. Mother Nature appears to be a Red Sox fan, trying to slow the Jays down and cool off their hot start
