Toronto Blue Jays


Wednesday, May 16, 7:07 PM ET

http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_493133.jpg vs http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_475138.jpg
Hiroki Kuroda.........Kyle Drabek
3-4, 3.56 ERA...........2-4, 3.66 ERA


http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/nyy.gif
Kuroda worked around two solo homers to pitch seven strong innings in a win against the Mariners. The first-year Yankee has struggled away from home, going 0-3 with a 4.32 ERA, nine strikeouts and nine walks.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Drabek struggled with his command against the Twins on Friday, walking four and needing 109 pitches to get 13 outs, allowing three runs in a losing effort.



Thursday, May 17, 7:07 PM ET

http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_461833.jpg vs http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_571800.jpg
Phil Hughes.........Drew Hutchison
3-4, 5.50 ERA.........2-1, 5.53 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/nyy.gif
Hughes picked up his second win in as many starts with his best outing of the season. He held the Mariners to one run over 7 2/3 innings. It was the third time since the start of the 2010 season that Hughes had recorded an out in the eighth inning.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Hutchison earned his second victory in his fifth Major League start on Saturday, going six strong innings to beat the Twins 2-1. He struggled with his fastball command but relied on his changeup to get out of a couple of jams.


Lawrie ejected after slamming helmet

Brett Lawrie was ejected in the bottom of the ninth inning for arguing a strike-three call with home plate umpire Bill Miller.

Lawrie likely will face a possible suspension from Major League Baseball after he threw his helmet to the ground during the argument and had it bounce off Miller's leg.

The argument initially began on a 3-1 pitch from Rays closer Fernando Rodney. Lawrie started trotting towards first base after taking a pitch he felt was off the plate.

Miller disagreed and called the pitch a strike, which set up the 3-2 count. Rodney delivered and Lawrie once again made a move towards first on a pitch he felt was above the zone.

Instead of a one-out walk, Lawrie was rung up on the play and immediately turned and started to yell at Miller. That led to his first career ejection and possible disciplinary action from MLB.

Blue Jays manager John Farrell came out to argue after Lawrie's ejection and was also tossed from the game.

According to Ian Harrison (me neither, but apparently he's a contributor for the AP) the same crew is staying in Toronto for the Yanks series. If true, that'll be fun.

I predict a series sweep from the Blue Jays. Honestly, this series could go either way. I just feel that Brett Lawrie throwing his equipment onto the dirt, and hitting an umpire with it and a manager getting ejected over the same incident can really rally a team. I think the Blue Jays are going to play their best baseball over these next 2 games, quite possibly longer

This will be a measuring stick for drabek and hutch. got a feeling drabek is going to get lit up with a patient yankee team.He barely survived the Twins.

05-16-2012, 01:36 AM
i see nothing other than another sweep on the hand of a division opponent.

We have our 2 worst pitchers going and I expect both of them to get hammered by the Yankees. As for the Yankees, it doesn't matter who they throw out there because any AAA pitcher will do the trick against this offense. Hughes and Kuroda should have no problem here.

Yankees missing their 2 best relievers as well but the Rays showed us that even their worst relievers could dominate us

expect more defensive and managerial mistakes

Ummmmm?

Maybe implying that his troubles in Milwakuee had anything to do with. There is no need to reference this in this article, he is just trying to bring up emotion to justify his position of a ****** lengthy suspension



Maybe stating that the 3-1 and 3-2 may have been outside. Anybody who is not legally blind can clearly see that they were beyond brutal calls and the ump was trying to show him up.

Maybe comparing the instance below from Delmond Young throwing a bat directly at an umpire compared with throwing a helment on the ground and it bouncing and hitting the ump in the leg.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCX_XlRYYDo

Maybe stating that there will be a lot of conversation on if Miller made the right call or not. There is no conversation. Miller made two brutal calls.


I am not saying that he doesn't deserve a 1-5 game suspension, but to come up with some BS that this deserves close to 50 games is beyond ridiculous.

Everyone compares George Brett to Brett Lawrie, and if he continue to play with his intensity and can live up to George numbers, I will take the odd instance or so of this:

He never did that.


Maybe stating that the 3-1 and 3-2 may have been outside. Anybody who is not legally blind can clearly see that they were beyond brutal calls and the ump was trying to show him up.

Never said that either. He said Lawrie took two pitches he thought were balls. What part of that isn't true?


Maybe comparing the instance below from Delmond Young throwing a bat directly at an umpire compared with throwing a helment on the ground and it bouncing and hitting the ump in the leg.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCX_XlRYYDo

That part I agree with. Dumb comparison.


Maybe stating that there will be a lot of conversation on if Miller made the right call or not. There is no conversation. Miller made two brutal calls.

http://t.co/IhgQd3pV

Strike three was debatable. Probably not a strike, but also not the egregiously bad call the second called strike was.


I am not saying that he doesn't deserve a 1-5 game suspension, but to come up with some BS that this deserves close to 50 games is beyond ridiculous.

Again, are we listening to the same clip? Bringing up the Delmon Young incident was dumb, but Olney said he expects 5-10 games for Lawrie, which if my math is correct is nowhere close to 50.

miller74
05-16-2012, 04:18 PM
Only problem i have with Olney is comparing it to Young instead of Jermaine Dye. But hes dead on the 2 issues really have nothing to do with one another.

Lawrie and the Jays will most likely appeal the upcoming suspension with the excuse of Lawrie's helmet taking a bad bounce. As for the game tonight, I like our chances against Kuroda. Hopefully the bats give enough run support for Drabek as I'm thinking he'll probably get hit around vs. their lineup.

According to Numbers Never Lie on TSN2 right now... 37% of the called strikes against the Jays last night were OUT of the strike zone, while the league average is 21%.

I don't get why that's a shock though. Some umpires just don't get it right, some have a stupid strike zone. That's baseball lol... It's not something that is like OMG REALLY. It's like oh okay he screwed them over, move on to next game.

purplehaze89
05-16-2012, 04:49 PM
Seriously? Still complaining about the ump? Fact: How Lawrie behaved was wildly inappropriate.

It`s a personal preference re: strike zones. Every ump is different. Who cares? The fact that the Jays couldn`t field worth a lick and scored 4 runs in 2 games against the Rays is the reason they lost both games. Period.

Some of you blame everybody else but your own team.

2009mvp

I think you are retardedly trying use the phrase retardedly. It's actually been called intellectual disabilitiy for about 2 years now as well so if you want to use the phrase, at least update it.

ya, after watching the clip of dye, this incident is closer to that of delmon or delmond! young. the dye clip was much more easier and forgettable than the young incident though hence the immediate comparison. It's not like it's apples to oranges though.

i wish we come back and score more runs in this inning but we never do that..

next 3 innings we'll probably have 1 runner..

Toxeryll
05-16-2012, 07:51 PM
another strike on AA... why not call up Cooper till Vlad gets here.. what do you have to lose?

because Lind sure isn't gonna suddenly start hitting again

yup, AA has been ridiculously patient with these scrubs, last year it was jojo

this offense is so predictably awful

its a ****ing joke.. they have to stand around for half the time in a 3 hour game.. how about factory workers that work 12 hours shifts standing.. they don't get days off

not to mention one gets paid 12 bucks and hour.. and the other 50 grands an hour

looks like Murphy has now ruined Lawrie as well

last year he came up and was having great ABs and taking tonnes of walks.. now he swings at everything and has like 5 walks all year

this guy has to ****ing go or he's gonna ruin everybody

Edwin is the man.

rapsjaysfan88
05-16-2012, 08:05 PM
Man we never get consistence in Toronto. One year we have great pitching no o, then the opposite. Jose needed protection last year now we get it when he sucks... Nothing ever always comes together for us. So frustrating...

bomber0104
05-16-2012, 08:05 PM
in about the same numbers of ABs last year, Lawrie had

16 BB, 31 K

this year

7 BB, 26 K

don't tell me Murphy has nothing to do with this

his walk rate has been sliced in more than half

Eagles4Lyfe
05-16-2012, 08:05 PM
Have i told you guys how amazing Edwin is

nads83
05-16-2012, 08:06 PM
drabek just needs to throw strikes and we'll be ok. we have the lead, no need to start being cute. these yankee hitters are very patient. they wont bite on many pitches. and i hope farrell is telling him that before every inning.

KidDraco
05-16-2012, 08:06 PM
Edwin looks like he's starting to heat up again, finally someone that can make them pay for walking Jose!
