    But in all fairness, you took a hard line position in the last post of the last thread like there is and only can be only one valid opinion, or option. It's really a far cry from being that cut and dried.

    But back to baseball. I hope that Matz is the Matz from prior to 2019! I have never actually seen him pitch.

    This will probably be the last time I address the topic because I don't want it to continue here: No, I was not taking a "hardline" stance or saying that there was one valid opinion. I was pointing out that there were people using this to indicate that Bichette was refuting the necessity or value of getting the vaccine when if you read the entirety of his comments from the article he actually says something closer to the opposite.

    My concern was entirely about the misinterpretation of what Bichette said and not about the validity of his or any other opinion.

    Who needs David Price and Roger Clemens when you have Steven Matz?

    Been really impressed with the start so far. Pitching has been great. The hitters are having excellent at-bats and the defense has been solid.

    Not much confidence in Roark tomorrow.

    Bad news for him but good news for a team like the Jays that can take him and stash him away. Also not the end of the world for Jaden Hill to go late in the 1st round to a good organization rather than get drafted by a team that is terrible at developing prospects Have to imagine the world class rehab facilities at the Jays complex will be compelling advantage if the Jays select him.

    Now that's quite a start. Did not know his pure stuff was so good!

    If this is hit at all of the other 29 ballparks, how many times is this a homerun?

    Good to see the boys win again, and by "see" i mean catch the tail end of a game that started at 4 pm for whatever reason

    I hate missing so many innings with the odd schedule thus far.

    Great too see the boys get off to such a great start. Merryweather may have found his niche as a closer.

    Hopefully if he gets in trouble he gets a quick hook. Matz took some pressure off the pen today.

    No interest in Jaden Hill with our pick. Short track record of health and performance and some scouts see a reliever. I'm still on the Sam Bachman / Ryan Cusick bus if we're going college pitcher, probably add big lefty Joe Rock there too if I didn't filter for level of competition.

    Feels like forever since a Jays starter pitched in the 6th. Super impressed with Matz, here’s hoping he continues to benefit from a change of scenery.

    Roark however... ugh.

    Roark going to come out with a no hitter tomorrow, you all watch! Or imploded in the 3rd inning. One or the other.

    Part of a combined no hitter but gets pulled in the 3rd after walking 7 and giving up 5 runs.

    Oh not to worry! Montoyo has no problem giving pitchers a quick hook and micro managing himself into a hole.

    We also need "Steven Matz is Awesome" too.

    A conundrum......

    yes - understood. How about a sensible hook? Too many times he makes moves that aren't needed.
