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.

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.
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!
