    Just came home, my goodness were those were some fantastic games!! Sat right behind the Jays bullpen in left field. The Jon Jay heckles were fucking amazing, we got a reaction out of him at least 5 times. He was a really good sport though, I think he heard "Long day, Jon Jay" at least 100 times.

    NEVER in my life have I been more relieved to see Ryan Goins batting than today. Every time it seemed the Royals were gonna rally I had hope seeing Ryan's name coming up in the order. Kinda like how a NL fan doesn't mind an opposing team stringing together a couple of hits if the pitcher is coming up. He finished 0-4 with 2Ks, the other 2 outs being fielded by the pitcher. On the lighter side he got a nice standing O and when it's all said and done I'm glad he was a Blue Jay. He was pretty fun to watch in 2015, the walk off vs the Indians was probably my favourite moment of his. See you @ the next Jays doubleheader in 2034 when the dome needs to be fixed from godzilla damage.

    This fanbase boos Alex Rios after several years of great play and gives a standing ovation to Ryan Goins, who has always been terrible.

    All Maile has to do is be replacement level. If he can do that, then it's like a one win improvement over the team's back ups the last two years.
    I seem to recall our backup catchers last year being much worse than that. Especially defensively. When Maile was hurt last year, our catching abilities were pathetic.

    Maile was pathetic last year too - his hot start has come out of nowhere.

    Maile was always a fine defensive catcher and then whatever you got out of him with the bat was bonus.

    Last year, apparently Maile was hurt when he came to the Jays. He had superb defensive skills, but his bat was poor. After he came back from surgery and started to get some regular at bats, he actually started to hit then. Not like this year obviously, but quite reasonable for a backup catcher.
