    Little doubt the big guy will be out there for Game 2. He's a warrior. Just hope he can battle through it.

    Only other alternative is a bullpen game followed by a Mitch White start. I'll gladly take your option instead.

    Id thought they would move White up to Game 1
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    I'd feel perfectly happy if we manage a split today with all this going on

    sorry - I see the minor nuance now. It's still really stupid and you should feel shame for posting such nonsense.

    Why? Its a very specific stat but doesn't oversell how unclutch he has been.
    Like he did not hit a single solo HR (at the minimum, not counting any RISP situations) in any game where the Jays were trailing with at least one out to his name (6th and on) over the full season.

    When was the last time you saw Vlad at plate, in a game-defining instance, and felt like damage was about to be done? Seemingly, that was last year.
    These days its a blessing in disguise if he doesn't GIDP with RISP

    This is damning. The anti-clutch gene in full force this season.

    Vladdy clutch in 2021, unclutch in 2022. Did he get a brain transplant?

    Maybe it's confirmation bias but I cant think of a clutch hit by Vladdy all season. I have no problem remembering clutch hits from Bo, Springer, Chapman, Teo, Lourdes, etc.

    He had the 3 HR Cole game, he had the walkoff single against Bautista/Os (the Sox one was a groundball that found a hole), and the ChiSox game where he took the lead for us in the 10th/11th with a ringing single. Those are the big ones (I recall) where he had a lot of impact (through the bat) for winning the game.

    The 3 HR game was cool but not really "clutch" in my opinion. The other two that you mentioned sure - as I said perhaps some confirmation bias.

    The only ones I remember are:

    - that Yankees game he hit 3 homers
    - walk off single vs the Os in extras
    - that double he hit in extras and Teo went on to walk it off

    Thatís all his clutch hitting this year

    Vlad has 2 walk offs this year, against the O's and Red Sox. but yeah, overall it'ss like he forgets his approach completely when there's guys on base and just tries to guess along with the pitcher and guesses wrong a ton. Same with Gurriel before his injury.
