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?
