    Brad and Big Al were impressed, they said in the Free Press this morning at how well Lowe pitched the 9th…I watch every game and the thing I noticed was at 94 mph the ball flys out of the yard a bit faster than when he pitches 92mph…..and thats a “physics fact”…

      Jud, you must remember he got 3 outs in a row. I don’t think he’s done that in a while. You or I can go out and perhaps survive an inning with a 10-0 lead. I do hope Mark gets it back to how he was last year because he would be a great addition to the pen.

    Stop the presses! Cleveland actually lost a game.

      Maybe that 19 inning marathon yesterday put too much strain on their pen. Hopefully the Jays will put more stress on them tomorrow so they are wasted for Monday. Also, I saw Rajai hit for the cycle and is having a heck of a year. I was never comfortable letting him go and the more I saw of Anthony Gose, the unhappier I was. Maybin has been a blessing.

        The strange thng to me Tony about the Gose situation is he was fine in the Davis /Gose platoon…but as soon as Davis was let go…(why I still don’t understand).but Gose looked like he wanted nothng to do with playing everyday. Right from opening day…..strange!

        They used today’s starting pitcher for 5 innings of relief last night, and started today’s game with the bullpen. Not many managers would have done that, but I have a feeling the players loved it. Keep the streak going! The Jays had infielders pitching their last two innings.
