When the Jays came back against Cleveland on Wednesday, part of me wondered if it was going to have a bigger significance. It's early days but it does feel like the Jays are back on track.
It's yet to be seen whether this moment for Goins is some sort of symbolic moment for the season, but it sure makes a great picture.
Nelson Cruz owns Marco Estrada, so having to face him in the first inning is probably one of the reason this particular first inning was full of grief.
Thanks for noticing, Scott. I think he's swell, too.
Joe Biagini is pretty exciting. He had another strong start, throwing five-plus scoreless innings. In his two starts, Biagini has allowed just one unearned run on six hits and seven strikeouts.
Whatever the future holds in this season, we'll always have weird Joe interviews:
Marcus Stroman is just fun to watch right now. He allowed just two runs over six innings on Saturday. Bautista and Morales both homered.
Bautista, after a very slow start, was finally showing proof of life.
So what Bautista is saying is that the team itself hasn't reacted to this tough stretch in a similar way to the way Jays Twitter has. I would say most were moping around and feeling bad for themselves. It was kind of a theme. Let's punish ourselves by watching our favourite players pull hamstrings.
An LOL you're old quip from Stroman
The double steal which featured Devon Travis steal of home is the point this series started to feel a little magic. It's not the high flying circus trick that a straight steal of home is, but it was pretty fun. Fun is only increased when the catcher is named "Tuffy Gosewich".
There were several shots over the weekend of Aaron Sanchez doing a variation of this:
However, the nail seems to have held up. Curveballs were thrown.
I think Pat Tabler had barely finished saying Edwin Diaz had a great slider when Kevin Pillar deposited a not so great slider into the right field stands.
Yeah, pretty good.
I love it when people say they are speechless and then ramble on for a while.
Random images I enjoyed.
You better be healing, Coltrane. Because Maile got a gun.
