BLUE JAYS: REQUIEM FOR A BANDWAGON REDUX

Well shit.  Just when I had learned five players’ names in the Blue Jays’ lineup, they’re out.  And they put up such a good fight in the ALCS, and their ALDS win was so exciting and dramatic, I can’t even gloat about this latest example of Toronto sports futility.  How is Toronto FC doing?

Still, this puts a different spin on Bautista’s bat toss. For that to truly go down in baseball history, the Blue Jays had to win the World Series.  Now it’ll just be a largely forgotten footnote; more a sign of hubris than victory.  He’ll be in danger of becoming the Blue Jays’ 21st century answer to George Bell.

Boo Jays:  Canada’s Team, until they’re not.  Where are the Expos when we need them?
