Ghostrunner on First is, before anything else, a Toronto Blue Jays blog. We live by the Blue Jays, we die by the Blue Jays. We try to keep that love from getting in the way of the our true enjoyment of baseball. Wins and loses are important, but the action on the field is what keeps us coming to the park.
If you are looking for rearranged AP game recaps sprinkled with curse words; you've come to the wrong place chump. What the games mean, how they make us feel, and having a good time at the expense of the personae you think you know and love are what you'll get here.
We may hate the idea of the opposition, that won't stop us from appreciating awesomeness when we see it. No matter what jersey it comes dressed in.
We also love numbers. Far from sabermetricans, we do realize that the vast array of stats available to baseball fans help us differentiate between what we see and how things really shake down. That's important, because we tend to get a little riled up.
We love defense, we love pitching. We hate scrap, hustle, and heart. If I wanted to watch a bunch of guys "trying hard", I'd watch Men's league at Christie Pits. I want to see something special. And I want to have a good time doing it.
