What kind of stupid ass road trip is this?

All the way out to the West coast for 3 games and then back to Milwaukee for 3 games, then back East?

I'm surprised they didn't just do Oakland and San Francisco on the same trip rather than have them do Oakland now and then San Francisco in a month.

I wonder if Teo+Varsho is much better than Davis Schneider+Varsho?

I agree KK was a mistake at $10MM. But Teo got 23.5 from the Dodgers so probably more to be a Jay. His OPS is 850 compared to Schneider's 750. Baseball Savant has Teo in the 11th percentile for outfields and Schenider in the 23rd, so better (but still not awesome).

Plus Teo is going to get way better pitches, hit more often with infield in, etc because he's hitting behind the start of the Dodgers lineup, while Schneider is hitting behind KK and bottom of the Blue Jays lineup. It's honestly hard imagine more different situations.

In hindsight it sure looks like they should have spent the KK money on a high leverage bullpen arm. I know Swanson's issues are probably personal life related (and not predictable/anyone's fault) but they didn't really replace Hicks from last year and having a fireballer come in and act like a closer in the 7th helps a lot.

Jays kept popping up in optimals for DFS and of course I had to play them. Thinking this is the day they actually live up to it and go off. But more likely scenario is they bust and I lose thousands and thousands of dollars.

American Family Field is a worse name than Guaranteed Rate Field

FFS. Just when you think things might take a turn. A 4 hit loss.

The twice or thrice a week power outage.
4 hits, and, under 2 runs for the umpteenth time.

Ha. The funny thing is if Horowitz wasn't running the 2nd baseman wouldn't have been where he was and it would be 1st and 3rd with Bo up. Just funny stuff.

Jays have scored 1 run or fewer 15 times this season. That's absurd.

If you think the Jays are going to go on some kind of run you should have a look at the schedule. It's a gauntlet.

Just have to hope they can manage to stay around .500 and keep themselves in striking distance of WC3

They just had a pretty nice 9-4 stretch against some weaker teams including a miracle split with Baltimore in there, and got themselves back into it.

Since I figured out how to get Apple TV live scores on my iPhone, I have stopped watching the Jays altogether.

Seems like I haven't missed much.

Only Jay I am playing today is Vladdy, so 0-4 from him and the other Jays should have a nice day at the plate.
