Look living in Canada, doesn't mean you have to instantly cheer for the "home" team, but with that being said and with things the way that they are right now - the Red Sox basically living in the basement like a mutated freak who isn't allowed upstairs - it's tough not to root for them right now. It's also especially tough not to watch OUR ace trample the rest of the AL.
If the Jays can continue to just run through teams, let's all hope that the Yankees are flattened among the rest. I won't truly be happy until the Sox transform from basement dwelling trolls to absolute studs and acquiring a pitcher with the skill set of David Price - well that's a pretty good place to start.
So if the Jays want to win this year, please do. Just do us a a couple favours in the process: Beat the Yankees and don't get used to seeing David Price in a Jays jersey.
With every European even knowing that the Red Sox need pitching, a guy like Price is exactly what they need to go out and get this off season. Cherington has to realize that not signing Lester and trading away Lackey absolutely was the wrong choice. This idea of not signing pitchers over 30 hasn't really worked out and I'm not buying it any longer.
You got us the first time, Ben. Now the jokes over and it's not funny anymore. It's sad. If he doesn't go out and buy a proven true ace like Price or Cueto or magically pull off a trade for Sale or Gray then we might as well join the Phillies and be the laughing stock of baseball.
Maybe with the Jays doing so well, Benny might have a look at how Alex Anthopoulos built this team. He was like a crazy psycho ex-girlfriend calling Beane for Donaldson, but guess what- it worked. Maybe Ben should try some new tricks because for the past 3 outta 4 years he has been the GM of a last place team. The 2013 beast-mode team can only save his job for so long.
The positives are this:
- With Castillo, Betts, and JBJ...I believe our outfield is set for next year..especially with catches like this in the outfield..
- Travis Shaw hit his 5th homer last night and it was a BOMB to right...really excited to see what he can bring next year
- Our minor league system is ranked @ No.1......THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT. Benintendi on the left, Moncada on the right
In the mean time heres a video of my favourite baseball team of all time. You're not human if this doesn't give you goosebumps every time you watch this. Thank you for the memories..FEAR THE BEARDS. (credit to BradleyJC on youtube)
