Let me just put a stamp on this

Started living life again during the long weekend and forgot to post something here, so here’s a shitty roundup sort of thing for your enjoyment!

The Drunks try to end The Summer of Tallet

In this great post, Stoeten of the Drunks puts together an interesting argument as to why Brian Tallet, despite rocking in the starting role, may be headed back to the bullpen before long. (Spoiler: It’s because Jesse Carlsson ain’t been so hot lately.) I love what Tallet’s been doing in the rotation so far, but if moving him to the ‘pen is best for the team, then I’m all for it.

The real question is, what will The Tao and his Moustache Riders think of this theory?

Don’t doubt the Arnsberg

Before the series against the White Sox, it seemed to be a popular kind of thing to say “Robert Ray is going to be demoted” and also to say “Scott Richmond has been figured out and should be sent to the bullpen/Las Vegas.”

If you said those things, you’d be wrong on both counts (and not just because Rob Ray wants to go by Bobby now).

Basically all you have to do is look at their starts against the Pale Hose to know that Captain Canada (7 IP, 7 K, 5 hits, 1 BB 0 ER) and Robert Rob Bobby Ray (8 IP, 3 K, 3 hits, 1 BB, 0 ER) are going to be around for a while yet.

Rolen being Rolen

Hello Kevin Millar!

A man named Andrew made it through to Jays Talk the other night. You can hear him at the 37:40 mark. Definitely worth a listen. If you don’t know why, read this post by the Drunks, specifically the No. 1 item.

Closing thoughts

We just passed the quarter mark of the season, the Jays are in first (regardless of what happens in Boston) and things are great. So good in fact, that Voodoo Joe hasn’t enacted any whammies yet. Thanks, Joe! This won’t be forgotten!

    • I’ve always liked Rolen, but never really had a ticket for the GBOAT. The more I watch that play, the more I’m tempted to pack my bags.

      But then I remember Halladay and it puts it all in perspective.

      Is a damn good play though.

      • With Polanco’s recent rvaievl with the bat, it’s quite possible that he approaches his career average by the end of the season. If that’s the case, Amaro would be crazy not to pick up his option. For the marginal improvement that you might get by trading Blanton for Kevin Youkilis, you lose fielding, room under the luxury tax, and a very solid starting pitcher who is off to one of the best starts of his career.

    • Is it too much to ask for someone to give Charlie a run eecnctaxpy chart? Rollins doubles to lead off the game and Pierre sacrifices him to 3rd, reducing the run eecnctaxpy for the inning from 1.2 to 1.0. Shockingly, the Phils did not score. I can handle watching the players try, but not succeed. I am struggling to continue to watch the manager go out of his way to put the players and the team in situations where the likelihood of failure is increased.
