Let's see if Vlad can take a 2-0 count and do something
I've missed the blue uniforms.
Vladdy needs to get closer to the plate. There is no way he can get to the outside pitches.
I'm not a negative guy, but when I see Vladdy coming up, I fully expect a ground ball out to an infielder.
Ryu might as well hit.
Someone else mentioned a couple days ago his approach is way off... I agree it seems that way to this casual fan. He took a 3-0 count and tried to obliterate a low inside pitch for a foul, then the EXACT same pitch next he just fluffed to short.... Doesn't seem like he is in sync.
Ryu absolute trash. No other ways to put it
What's up with Ryu today?
RIP Jays today.
Teoscar is absolutely raking to start the season.
Somehow every waddling step that Joe West makes infuriates me.
Also that should be a HR if the padded wall is the extent of the OF fence and the crowd guardrail is out of play.
This is why you dont have 2B play the OF. Can we please just let Biggio play 2B and players play the position they know. RF should have called off Panik but Biggio didnt do that because he doesnt play OF that often, its not second nature.
Had a play similar where Biggio, Tellez and Espinal were trying to catch a foul ball. The 2B knows his job is to direct traffic there and the RF to call it, none of that happened and we almost had a collision.
We have OF on the roster, keep Biggio at 2B and play Alford for the injured Fisher.
Everyone wants versatility but it comes at the expense of your defense. Let your utility guys learn to play other positions, and keep your stars at the position they know.
Teoscar heating up
Keep the triple. The homerun is a rally killer.
I dunno. Teoscar got thrown out trying to take 2nd earlier this game. Clearly if you left him on base he'd just be out there clogging up the basepaths. And we can't have that.
Good that the young guys seem to get along
Ya I expect either a ground out or strike out. He’s been hot garbage so far offensively and defensively. They need to have a difficult and serious conversation with him about how he is approaching his career.
Seems like he is thinking waaaay too much. Just get in the box, pick a zone, and if the pitch is there, rake.
9 hits and a walk for Ryu in just 4 innings? Yikes.
I think it looks like the opposite - he's not thinking enough.
Could be that, too.....
Something isn't right.
First pitch fluffer.
I don't think I can mentally handle another ground out by Vladdy
Vladdy has truly looked like an average hitter in the big leagues. Hasn't lived up to the hype at all. We can be patient with him here in Toronto but so far it's been underwhelming.
Hatch > Yamaguchi
I'm finding this season increasingly frustrating to watch. I think it's due to the extended playoffs combined with a shorter season. I want this team in the post-season and the 'stakes' each game has is getting to me.
