article imageThe injuries are mounting, but the Toronto Blue Jays keep winning

By Nawest Vazquez     Apr 24, 2009 in Sports
Well, here come the injuries. The upstart Toronto Blue Jays are set to face adversity as they hit the road on a seven-day, seven-game road trip.
You know what Blue Jays fans do when they face adversity, right? They reach for the bottle.
Ricky Romero's been placed on the disabled list. Have a beer. To drown your sorrows.
B.J. Ryan joined him. Have a beer. In celebration.
Richard Griffin wrote an interesting and provocative blog post. Have a few. It may never happen again.
We, loyal fans, will only be able to watch an upcoming Blue Jays/Red Sox series on TSN2, which nobody has access to. Drink up. Get mad.
Scott Richmond once again performed yeoman's work on the mound. Six innings, six hits, two earned runs (albeit both on solo home runs), and eight strikeouts. What more can one possibly ask of a fifth starter? Cheers, Scott. With a Canadian lager, of course.
Three more home runs last night. Twenty-eight on the season; the second-highest total in baseball. Chicks dig the long ball. And so do I. Get drunk on that one.
Scott Downs picked up his first save of 2009. I admit, I was loathe to have him move out of his set-up role. Why mess with a good thing? But he got the job done. Raise your glass in honour of the Jays' new closer. With the game on the line there's no one I trust more with the ball than Snakeface.
In spite of all the second-guessing of The Cito, and in spite of all the injuries, the Jays are still in first place; are still playing .700 baseball. Forget the beer. Believe that the Jays are going to win the pennant.
