Woohoo we get to see a 4 K inning to end it
Just call him out and put this gongshow to rest.
Rainey's K/9 this game is 40.50. If he gets this K it goes down to 36.00. Because logic.
Missing Shaw, Grichuk and Bichette.
Everyone jumping on Yamaguchi who’s not expected to do much on this team anyways. What about getting on the so called “star” of this team, Vladimir Guerrero, who is definitely one of the worst, if not the worst fielder in all of baseball. And as if that’s not bad enough, he can’t even hit. So I’m not going to scream at Yamaguchi for not doing his job when leaders like Guerrero aren’t doing anything positive.
He's 21. Reaaaaaaaaaax
If your supposed leader is a 21 year old, 2nd year big leaguer your team has bigger problems i reckon.
Typical Blue Jays. You offer the fans the most hyped prospect in ages debuting in a home opener, and nobody shows up.
Vlad is utter trash and he's cost the team 2 losses now
Pearson is a god. Wow
That was a great pitching game overall, but now I'm just mad at Yamaguchi.
I find baseball losses make me more upset than any other sport. And it's not because I care more. I guess it's just how it goes sometimes. It's rare I look back at a hockey game or other sport and say what if. It seems like 4 out of every 5 baseball games the Jays lose I'm angry about something that should have went differently.
To be fair to him, putting him in the tenth inning two times in a row, when he didn't have good camps and adjusting to a new league and country isn't the wisest move.
Agreed. Vlad is causing Montoyo and Yamaguchi to make bad decisions. What a horrible player.
It's obvious the fans of Toronto have found the next young player to tear to shreads. Sure lets blame the 21 year old.
Robertson last night for the LEafs then Pearson tonight for the Jays... 2 prospects in Toronto sports showing they can play!
That was a well pitched game. For sure. Until the late inning.
I mean to cover for injuries. If bichette is injured you still have a decent lineup if you throw in groshans and Martin. Right now too many at bats go to guys with little ability to hit major league pitching.
The best teams in every sport have Deep lineups that are able to absorb short term injuries during the season. If you have 7 or 8 above average regulars you probably won’t miss too much of a beat when bichette is out a week or two. His injury right now is magnifying by the amount of at bats currently going to below average players.
Yup it's extremely tough for young players to be in Toronto. I'm not surprised though. All Toronto teams can't do a rebuild because of some fans.
The thing that bothers me is this was another very winnable game against the defending champs in a shortened season where .500 ball COULD get you a playoff spot. Ugh.
Give it time. Pearson will be thrown out of the city when he has a bad start.
Eh we scored 0 runs. You lose those ones every time.
Wish they pinch hit Bo with 2 outs he doesn't need to run if its a homer lol
