Marco Estrada picked up where he left off in 2015.and provided the Jays with the kind of shut down win they needed. Four loses in a row early in April is not a huge deal, but this felt more like a moral victory. A cleansing.
The changeup was on point, indicated by the Red Sox hitters shaking their heads a lot. Estrada also used a cutter to great effect.
The great Bautista to Goins to Martin play to keep Pedroia from scoring as well as the Donaldson homer late helped shake off some of the fear. The play at the plate reminded everyone these boys can dazzle with defense and the homer offset some of the disquiet concerning the Jays inability score late so far.
It's so ridiculously early, but this was a good win.
Now it's time for a luxury beauty product discussion no one asked for.
Issue one is that stuff smells so good. Particularly Tom Ford Oud Wood. You have to be a serious man (or woman) to wear that. It's very sexy. It reminds me that Tom Ford made Gucci one of the sexiest fashion lines ever. Tom Ford also has four baths a day.
Issue two is Tom Ford beauty products, like Tom Ford anything, costs. I mean, the lipstick is over 60 bucks. He has to pay for all that hot water somehow.
Issue three is I don't know where Martin is buying his beard oil, but that stuff retails for $50 on the Tom Ford site. And I thought "well, maybe he's buying it in Canada." But no, Holt's sells it for $55. But not $80. The only reason this is relevant is that Martin seems to really care that it's $80 for a little bottle.
Issue four is "My beard can be kind of funky...."
This concludes the discussion of luxury beauty products no one asked for.
