    For some reason the Blue Jays are off to their worst start ever. They lost again today and are now at 1 and 9, not all that good so far.

    They'll be okay as long as they are playing 500 ball by the end of may. In 2015 when they won the east they were playing 500 until mid July when they broke out. That team is too good to stay this bad. Lots of injuries, two of their best startinging pitchers and of course Donaldson and Tulo. Bautista is starting to see the ball better as well Martin. Pillar is on fire at the plate. They still haven't won a series or two in a row for that matter, but I think they are still a powerhouse that will turn it around soon. It's early, and not too late for the jays to recover.  My team is off to a bad start as well.

    Thanks for the post Slow_pawn. Good points, the season is still very young.

    From time to time one can find some great stuff over on YouTube. Earlier today I came across a clip from the 1988 World Series, called by Vin Scully of course. It was from Game 1, bottom of the 9th with 2 out and the Athletics leading the Dodgers 4 to 3. Well it is Kirk Gibson coming up to bat and he has quite a bad limp but he manages to work the count to 3 & 2. Eckersley has to throw something good and Gibson hits the 2 run homer to right field ( a very beautiful 9 minute video clip ).

    great call by vin, too-"i don't believe what i just saw!"

    I remember Eckersley. He's a analyst for TBS now I'm pretty sure. I've actually seen that clip before.  You're right, lots of great baseball on youtube. I watched the '68 world series on youtube one year. Funny how so much is different and yet the same.
