Bet Lincoln gets optioned for an OF(Sierra?) after this outing.

Good to see we scored all those runs without the help of a hr

Man this felt great. Crossing my fingers for the Melkman's MRI tomorrow. Great to see Bonifacio continue to contribute.

Solid approach from the bats tonight, but I hope they save some offense for tomorrow. Something tells me Ortiz isn't going to fluke his way into another 5 inning, 1 run outing.

It might be one of those games we need to offense to take control of early.

I thought Dickey was actually really good tonight. His knuckler was a bit harder, and his k's were up.

That would make sense if they want to give Melky a day 2 day rest or DL Melky & bring up Sierra.

Wilner said stroman may be with the team in June as a starter which I find interesting.

Yes. Bonifacio has come around with the bat the last few games. I still don't trust him in the OF or INF.

Wilner isn't really in the loop, it's pretty obvious. It's just opinion.

I think that is a pretty informed opinion... I can definitely see that happening.

My favourite part of this game was the complete "wtf were you doing?" Look that gibbons had after maicer was thrown out stealing 3rd.

I'd like to know what the answer to "did you go on your own?" that Gibbons asked him was. no way Izturis has the green light.

Not really, Stroman has been stretched out in extended ST....and he's to join the rotation with the Cats in a few days, he's an option as a starter as will be McGowan. This was the Jays plan all along. They said it in the off-season.

there will be a hard on alert when stroman starts lighting things up. electric personality with electric stuff. he and Lawrie in the same dugout will be interesting.

Stroman's slider is fap-worthy, and his FB is pretty damn sweet as well.

Good decision by AA to push morrow to the Yankees series, with off day Thursday we can burn the bullpen tommorow and sweep this mini series. 3 innings from our starter, then hand it to the pen.

Things are turning, I'm a little upset with myself for writing this season off...getting the feeling things could turn out alright!

he will be in jays jersey by the all star break if everything goes well getting him stretched out again. maybe they can trade JJ at the deadline if Stroman and Hutch can get into the rotation.

melky is the best hitter on toronto, not a good message for children after the PEDs

I was really pleased with jose today. I like to see him draw those walks and not always swing for the fences.

This is probably my best case scenario. Hell, if we're still dealing with injuries, maybe Drabek and Nolin will be ready by then.

DAMN that would be a young rotation.

I have. Many, many times.

So it seems my pre-season prediction that DeRosa would rake was correct. The guy's wrist has fully healed and in ST he showed good pop. I think he certainly deserves more than a bench role - if anything, at least a platoon role. Moving forward we may see less of Boni/Izzy and more of DeRosa.

Lincoln continues to shit the bed, which is depressing cause last year he was NAILS for Pittsburgh. The guy has pretty nasty stuff but it seems his fastball is just straight. I'm thinking as soon as McGowan is ready Lincoln will go down. If Rogers continues to shit the bed too, I wonder if we'll see a guy like Stroman (if he doesn't get a rotation spot)

Solid approach from the bats tonight...

It seems as if the Jays approach at the plate has changed over the last couple of games. Everyone is not trying to yank the ball over the fence and are actually going with where the pitch is being thrown - Pitches outside the plate are either being laid off (more patience) or being hit to the opposite field or up the middle. Is there a link where I can see this sort of information? Thanks.

I thought Dickey was actually really good tonight. His knuckler was a bit harder, and his k's were up.

He had a good outing which was great to see. I think Dickey should start treating his nails with a nail hardener solution since his nails seem to be an important factor in the type of pitch he throws.

I also laughed when I saw Gibbons expression - Just wish I could have read lips to know what was really said. Anyway, Gibbons would not blow-up for something like that during the game however I feel certain he would certainly address a move like that some time before the next game.

BTW, I heard that if you get an MRI you need to rest for a day or two. If Melky gets his today, that means he's out for tonight? I guess Boni can play..

Great game last night...hopefully they can keep it going tonight. Not sure with Ortiz on the mound though...

I was really pleased with jose today. I like to see him draw those walks and not always swing for the fences.

When he settles back into his patient role at the plate his presence will become even more valuable cuz he has protection behind him. Pitchers will come to him rather than try to get him to swing at anything outside the zone knowing not doing so will only lead to putting on a base-runner for Encarnacion.

Agreed on Stroman, not sure McGowan will be a starting option because he only pitched 1 inning on his debut. After being in EXST throughout April and even having pitched in ST with the Jays, don't you think he would've started the game? Regardless, great to see him pitching again, if he can start, then great, but he would also seem like a faptastic option out of the bullpen.

I would also add that Stilson isn't being mentioned as much as he should. He's been moved to the BP and this is where most saw him at the time he was drafted given his the injury concerns. So I think Stilson and Carreno replace Stroman in terms of being viewed as bullpen options with Stroman starting. If Nolin continues to progress and Stroman pitches well as a starter, then you add Hutchison and you may have 2-3 options for next year and possibly a couple of starts this year instead of the Ortizes of the world.

This is really tame compared to the previous board. I just hope people on this new board can put aside their inflated egos while responding with accurate information so new-comers can use this as an opportunity to become more baseball savvy. If something seems too silly they should try to just ignore it rather than get into pissing matches thereby hijacking threads or making the place become unbearable. Only time will tell so I am just hoping for the best.

Why would one need to rest after an MRI? I had mine on my wrist and was completely fine.
