The Blue Jays are hitting the ball pretty hard
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Nice easy 1-2-3. I'm just relieved nobody got hurt.

I'm sad that I'm old enough to get the reference, but it's still the single best moment in TV history.

Anywhere on Carlos Gomez or Manny Machado. You get fireworks, too.

I agree, and everybody was watching that day!

A good friend of mine here in LA owns the infamous white Bronco that OJ took his joy ride in, and he told me today that CNN ranked that chase as the 6th greatest ever TV moment...5 behind "in the butt, Bob".

There's a certain exuberance in that dugout that's been missing for a long time.

Blue Jays announcers,

"It's up to the Jays to figure out Kevin Corriea"

I'm almost still laughing too hard to type that!

Gotta say, though, that the way most of the country was glued to that white Bronco chase ranks as one of the most bizarre TV moments.

Correia has Bautista, Encarnacion, and Lind for the 3rd time next inning. For their careers, they are batting .984 and .927 respectively against a starter on the 3rd try. 1st time against a reliever? .800 and .816.

Its a 4 run lead I guess, but we know Gardy. He refuses to pull a guy throwing a shutout, no matter who's due up or how many ringing line drive outs he gives up.

edit: forgot about Lind - he's batting .843 and .707, respectively.

I will go on record as saying I'm OK with Correia starting the 6th.

No question about it. Now though, car chases seem to be a weekly occurrence here in SoCal...just had another yesterday. They always interrupt TV programming, and I sat there and watched it for an hour yesterday like a moron.

God, I miss the Midwest...

Let him hang himself, I say. Either he pitches well and gets the win or he implodes and is replaced by May.

Both May and Correia working on shutouts tonight...May's only through 2 innings though.

An embarrassment of pitching riches.
