Jays bloggers do what their team couldn’t – bash the O’s
by Matthew Taylor
Two out of three ain’t bad, but it clearly wasn’t good enough for Dave Trembley on Sunday following the Birds’ 5-4 loss to the Jays.
Know who else wasn’t feeling too happy this weekend? Jays fans. Here’s a round-up of some blog reactions to the O’s visit to the Rogers Center:
Drunk Jays Fan sounds, rather fittingly, like an angry drunk. Saturday’s game? A “piece of [excrement].” But DJF’s disgust isn’t limited to this series:
“Sure … the jays won back-to-back World Series in the early 90s. But the point is, I was too young to drink and therefore appreciate it properly. Is it too much to ask that we be [sh**faced] when we witness these events?”
Hmmm … is anyone else suddenly reminded of those $2 Tuesday YouTube videos from back in April?
The Mockingbird notes that A.J. Burnett has “the maturity of a two-year-old Chihuahua,” following Burnett’s mock tipping of his cap on Saturday. And to think, we could’ve had this guy in Orange and Black. Burnett, that is; not The Mockingbird.
KP Wee of Jays Nest is no fan of the “last-place Baltimore Orioles,” a team he considers “inferior” to the Blue Jays. But that’s nothing compared to Wee’s opinion of “baseball’s worst team,” a designation he reserves for Toronto’s next opponent, the Seattle Mariners.
Finally, Hugo of Blue Bird Banter, in a posting titled “This City’s a Mess, This City’s a Mess, This City’s a Mess,” notes that “the Jays can’t afford to keep losing, particularly against Baltimore.”
Roar from 34’s take on the weekend – Sure, a sweep would’ve been ideal, especially considering the 4-2 lead Radhames Liz gave the bullpen on Sunday. However, Friday’s amazing comeback and Saturday’s battering of A.J. Burnett should offset any major disappointment among O’s fans. The Birds leave Toronto with a .500 record, just a half-game out of third place. This is fast becoming one of the most entertaining O’s seasons in recent memory.
