Could this be it? Can this possibly be a team I can finally watch?
Proud to say this is the first Blue Jays blog I’ve written this year minus my campaign to get Stroman shipped to another planet. With Stroman and Shapiro part of the club, I went on a sabbatical for 3/4 of a season and It’s been glorious. Zero stress, no morning disappointment flipping through box scores.
Trading The Blow Show opened the door to my inner Blue Jays fan so I wanted the first 4 innings of last nights drubbing of the Royals, and, I liked it. I really liked it.
Bo Bichette is undeniable going 2-4 w a walk batting leadoff in his second MLB start.
Ready, Set, Bo!

Sean Reid-Foley scattered 4 hits over 5 innings working out of a big fat jam in the first.
Cavan Biggio has been an offensive and defensive revelation (he’s been quiet lately but who gives a shit. He’s a ‘Biggio’.
Then there’s Vlad. Vlad the impaler. Vlad the fucking superhuman who can park a 90 mph curveball into the fountain 440 feet away from home plate with that violent ‘I’ve had six beers at slow pitch’ swing. Jr’ had 5 RBI’s last night to boot.
Plakata, Plakata, Plakata!! Plakata me all the way down to Will Call to purchase a ticket in the 200 level. That’s right, I’d pay at least 35$ to see this team play baseball. I don’t give a shit about wins or losses right now, but I do care about watching players that give a shit, with a chance to win on any given night.
Cavan and Bo on base for a bunch of these make the front of my shorts big.
If you really wanna make real fans like me feel like it’s worth a trip down to the lakeshore, fire Mark Shapiro during a pregame ceremony and I’m perfect.
