- I started the lawnmower only to see a damn snake emerge from the motor housingJohnny Damon takes Halladay deep to win Saturday's game. Both unsettling and scary.
- A bird shit on my person as I "pulled weeds" or "stood around feeling completely overwhelmed"BJ Ryan is paid to throw baseballs professionally. Both cruel and unnecessary.
- The Rogers guy and I follow wires around my new basement (before I actually moved in) when suddenly a makeshift bong and "funk gun" fall out of the dropped ceilingBrett Cecil loses the ability to throw strikes. Both embarrassing and avoidable.
- A groundhog of Caddyshack proportions lives under my shedHideki Matusi's bulbous skull suddenly houses a working, sentient brain. Both maddening and right the fuck out of left field. Even worse: I have a shed.
All is not lost though! Adam Lind is putting on a damn show
The All Star break can't get here fast enough. The Jays have some decisions to make as they could figure into the trade market significantly. Could they trade Brian Tallet as frequent Jays referencer John Paul Morosi suggests? They very likely could, but who else? Morosi hints that any number of bullpen arms could be on their way. Jeremy Accardo for a quad-A roster filler to be named later sounds about right. Frasor's value will never be higher than right now, which I have mixed feelings about. The Sausage King is one of the longest tenured active Blue Jays, a fact that means next to nothing to me. The potential exists for him to one day become wildly overpaid like Justin Speier. Until that day; pity the poor Sausage King. He's basically a homeless guy who's slept on the same street corner for years. Transient permanence.
