Since there is no game today, what are everyone's thoughts on the home stand?

I am looking for 6-3 with some excellent batting performances from Lind and Melky.

I don't know about the outcome of the games, but I'm betting that Rob Ford shows up, cracked out of his head, and streaks across the field.

4-5 or 5-4 is as good as this team can do at this point.

I predict a massive disappointment for jays fans, that will turn into an acceptance of the inevitable failure and eventually people will just collectively not give a shit.

AA will blame injuries and no one will be held accountable.

edit:hope they prove me wrong...

1-2 against TB
3-1 against BAL
1-1 against ATL

So I see a 5-4 homestand, which at this point just isnt good enough

6-3

I'd like to see the math on that one. lol

jays are getting about 1 good start avg for each time through the rotation, but the offense doesn't show up every day. the chance of both coming to any given game is slim at best.

jays are

3rd in runs allowed

17th in runs scored

23 in OBP

22nd in avg

5th in HR

they have only 1 shutout all year

so, if the jays dont hit 5 HR a game, they dont win and this is a year where the offense is definitely all or nothing

add in that TB have been crushing the ball for a month and Baltimore seems to have the jays number, the weak spot is ATL but that is only 2 games.

not sure how that will add up to a .666 winning avg over the next 9 games.

I'm not optimistic about the next few weeks.

ATL for 2 games, 2 wins

I'm sure we'll pull one game from the Rays, 3 wins

The Orioles are lucky fucking pieces of shit who can't do anything but sit around and hope that everything goes right which for whatever reason it always does so those cocksuckers can burn in hell, 6 wins

My logic is simple: I hate the Orioles, thus, 6 wins. Lol.

so your personal hate for the opposition is rated at 3 wins in 1 series? talk to AA about a contract. lol

GD
05-19-2013, 09:05 PM

Because they've been playing really shit-like lately and their only wins recently have come against the Dodgers (and one against AZ).

My logic is flawless lol.

There 5-5 in there last 10 games and won 3 in a row. I wouldnt exactly call that "playing really shit-like" no matter who they've beaten.

Regardless there a good ballclub and will give us trouble. Expecting the Jays to sweep any team at this point is kind of silly seeing they look like a very bad team.

They've beaten the Dodgers, though, that's what I was talking about.

We swept the Giants, didn't we? Meh, none of this is important as none of my logic is really serious here.

Jays beat the Giants because the Giants were looking at the standing and stats and thought they'd walk over the jays. they were not focus and started both games with lots of errors which is not like them.

Okay, actual prediction: 5-4

The Giants played about as bad as you could and kicked the ball all over the field. I wouldnt be suprised if they had a rough night out on the town before the series started.
We also faced Zito who isnt that good and Vogelsong has totally fallen off a cliff this season.

I don't get how Morrow can be that inconsistent. It's wild.

o2cui2i
05-19-2013, 09:33 PM
he doesn't have many innings as a starter. he hasn't done a whole season as a starter. he's been closed down or injured and only done part seasons. I think that is why he had been moved to the closer role before the jays got him. electric stuff, but you just dont know what you get.

He doesnt have good control, is beyond fragile and seems somewhat like a mental midget.

If I were betting on the overall home stand record, I would probably go with a losing record. I certainly hope I am wrong, but the only favorable pitching matchup against the Rays is the first game. The O's series could go either way, and I am not liking our chances against the Braves. That being said, if this team has any prayer of pulling off a winning home stand they almost certainly have to take the first game against the Rays.

I might head down to the game if I wake up early enough in the morning.

Lol you didn't use any of the right "there"s in your whole post. Got them all wrong. That just made me lol, sorry.

6-3....2 from Tampa, 3 from Baltimore and a split against the Braves!

If this team does that then they remain right on track to right this mess they are in. They are 7-5 in their last 12 and a 6-3 home stand gets them to 13-8, which is right about the pace they need to maintain and it gets them to the 90 - 92 win mark. They probably need a small run with a 6 - 8 game winning streak somewhere in there to really make this work though, but not impossible.

I really hope I am wrong about my prediction and if they can win Dickey's start it really gets things going.

Hellickson has been pretty bad so far this season, I think there are quite a few pitchers in these series the bats can beat up on (Opefully more than the opposition knocks our guys).

6-3 to me is the minimum they have to do to to have much of a chance. If they're truly gonna make a run, they'll have to start with this homestand and look at the 2 losses at NY as a bump on the road. They will also need to dominate at home the rest of the way, at least they've won 3 in a row at home now, so that's a good sign, they've also mashed in those 3 games, but I probably just jinxed them. This homestand will take them to June and if they do well, they could get JJ back and then it would only be 1 big hole in the starting rotation, of course, I'm assuming the big acquisitions don't continue stinking.


On the other hand, this organization might be better off getting a top 5 draft pick, but knowing them, they'll blow it plus Rogers may never spend this much again if it fails so miserably.

if they go 4-5 or 3-6 they will be done by the end of june. they have to make up at least 1 game every week.

Yes agreed, here's to hoping the Birds tee off on Odorizzi, game 1 and 3 of this series seem attainable.

+1, I see us blowing up Odorizzi today.

The injuries to Johnson, Happ came at a bad time, just when this team could inch closer and closer to .500, the next few series are important.Don't like the fact we have a rookie and jenkins going the next 2 games.

It's going to come down to the bats right now and things seem to be getting better on that front. Need to win 3 games minimum this series.
