Man, how long have the Jays been on the Left Coast? We don't think we can take many more late nights mashed up with early morning meetings.
Last night's 5-4 win over the A's was keyed by Lyle Overbay's two-run double in the eighth, and it's a damn good thing that Toronto's resident bouquet snatcher pulled this one out.
Overbay's two GIDPs earlier in the game, including one with the bases loaded where he allowed a 2-0 fastball down the middle to go by untouched, had us in conniption fits last night. Until his big hit, we were pretty certain that this morning's post was going to be a Lyle takedown, where we wrote of our profound disappointment in him, and made cheap comments about his teeth.
On the wire
With the Mark Redman experiment now over, the Jays have signed yet another marginal left-hander in Joe Kennedy. Kennedy's been assigned to Syracuse for now, but will likely get the call this weekend, when the Jays make their September callups.
September callups! Fuck!
