Shack, I told you I wasn't the only one who thought the Jays had some really crappy unis.

:)

At the time, I think we were discussing Compartive Ugliness ;-)

As for these...

Those TOR softball uniforms sure are OOOGLY... the numbers hurt my eyes...

Although Bradford unforgivably walked the leadoff batter in the 8th, he kept his composure pretty well after Ramon decided not to catch when Eckstein was up.

So I think a little credit is due to Bradford as well.

This team is so much fun to watch this year. Great win. :)

And Nick closes the broadcast by responding to Amber's inane questions with some, um, mumble-mumble ;-)

She looked pissed after the interview, like "gee, thanks".

I'm surprised Extra Innings even let us see that much. For those of you with regular MASN, any good interviews?

Well, she never asks anything, really.

It's always like, "How important is it that something good happened?" or "How good does it feel that so-and-so came through?" or "How much does this win help the team's momentum?" or something else mindless.

What's any player gonna say? "Um, not much." She basically forces them to answer along the lines of "Oh, yeah, that's really huge."

AFAIK, there's no law against somebody asking an actual question. For example, she did ask Nick something about his hitting, but it just invited him to say "Oh, I feel comfortable now and I'm seeing the ball well and getting some good pitches to hit" or some such crap. She could just as easily have asked him what little changes he made in his stance, or what he and Crow were working on, or something else that invited him to say something about actual baseball stuff.

I agree with you entirely. I was just thought it was funny because she seemed to be hoping for something along the lines of Adam Jones' interview after his game-winning RBI early in the season (against Seattle?) where he said he couldn't wait to face the Yankees.

    • A lot of people didn’t like this signing.  It was a few bad outings last year but otherwise, he was very good. He will have some bumps in the road but he’s a very capable guy still.
    • I agree. It has to be anticipating Mountcastle being out a little longer, maybe they will IL him too if his knee doesn’t improve quickly. But if Hays is out the minimum 10 days (one of which already passed), maybe Kjerstad gets 3 starts from Mountcastle and 1-2 from rest days for others, available to pinch hit the rest. That wouldn’t be so bad. 
    • I trust the O’s and Elias’ handling of him.  Similar to Decosta and the Ravens, they seem to make more good decisions than other clubs do.     I think he can work it out at the major league level if they do.  Wouldn’t be worried if he got sent down to regain some confidence.
    • I don’t see Wells coming back to the rotation. That was never the plan to begin with. Also, I’m not sure it’s a given that Means can make effective starts at the Bug League level right now. He’s been legit terrible against AAA hitters on a pretty consistent basis so far this season. Now Bradish on the other hand, if he can return, he will probably bump one of Suarez or Irvin to the pen (the one who is pitching the worse).  If Suarez keeps performing (I don’t think his current level is realistic to expect) but at a good level for a back end starter, he stays.
    • Remove Bradish and I will maybe agree. To me this guy is destined for the pen, where hopefully his swing and miss stuff plays up even more. Could be an important piece, but I’m not getting my hopes up too far after two appearances.
    • Good comp. I see a lot of Daniel Cabrera from Suarez. A bigger guy with a real heavy fastball with heat and movement.    Cabrera ending up not living up to his potential, but for a minute it was fun dream of a 1-2 with him and bedard as lethal TOR starters. 
    • To each their own. Carry on…
