It feels like we're juggling a live hand grenade watching Latos pitch today

That line up is a thing of beauty!


I'm disappointed Stro is not in the 4 hole personally


I really wish teams would just play pitchers in positions that used to play in HS and college.

I think teams tend to get a little overly caution about injuries when it comes to pitchers.
I don't want to say we're dysfunctional. But we need to be more functional.

Looking at yesterday and today's lineups compared to 2 seasons ago it's like, yuck, what the hell happened?

I thought exactly the same thing when I looked at it. Injuries to two of your better hitters at actual defensive positions will change things in a hurry.

Meh, I mean there aren't too many teams that are going to have a great looking lineup when you lose two players like Donaldson and Tulo, and are playing without a DH.

Take JD, Tulo, and EE out of the lineup in 2015 and it doesn't look much better.

Not scoring here would be a very Blue Jay thing to do

Pearce is slumping so badly even his great swings are outs....

Osuna is yet another headache for a team that could use a little pain relief.

Maybe they need to shut Osuna down. The lowered velocity plus the way he is getting hit around right now isn't a good combination.
