Hey! Weekend at Bernies night at the Dome one day after John fucking Hughes dies! Exciting times. Ugh.
Excuse my cynicism eating my skepticism but, as I said back in April (when I made the same Weekend at Bernies joke) I can't muster up the courage to care. I'm more concerned, for the second time in a month, with beating the damn Orioles. Is this what's come to? Begging for the chance to hold off the OriLOLes as basement dweller? Sigh.
Luckily I have far more exciting things on my mind. Like Adam Lind and Aaron Hill. Honestly, how good a 2-3 punch is that? No matter how bad a defender Adam Lind is (worst in the league, says Baseball Digest Daily) these are two legit studs that we get to watch every day. Every single day! Both players have good chances to put their names on some all time Blue Jays lists for home runs and extra base hits in a season. Hill has an outside shot at 200 hits, a feat only 5 other Blue Jays have accomplished. As an aside, who might be the Jays single season hits leader? Vernon Wells with 215. I'll just scrape my mind up off the floor....
One more good thing to remember tonight while Rogers suits distract you from a disappointing year: Brett Cecil is awesome. He owns the O's (once, but that's enough for me) and will do so again tonight. Roccopolous is having a rather garbagey year (just like our version) and despite Adam Jones's awesomeness, the Orioles are still the O's. Go Jays.
