    Bad ball hitting? Maybe he's finally taking the "Puckett vs. Mauer" debate to heart

    Plouffe had two bad ABs and made an error, but he's had two good at-bats since. There is improvement there, for sure.

    What's more encouraging, the hitting today or the pitching? I'll go with pitching because now I am thinking Gibson is for real.

    is it just me oris it crazy that blue jays pitchers have taken 155 pitches to get through 6 innings? Anybody know what the record is for pitches by one team to get thru 9 innings? Is colabello hurt? why pull him in the 6th? is he that slow?

    Gibson was saving all the Ks for the end

    According to online, that first pitch to Sierra was Gibson's fastest of the day. Finally hit 93MPH on the gun in the 7th.

    Both. The back of my mind is starting to honestly believe this team has a shot at 75+ wins.

    Colabello, Kubel, and possibly Dozier/Plouffe will cool off a bit but they're all looking like legit MLB hitters. Going into the season, I was only comfortable saying that about Dozier.

    And I think any drop-off from that group can be offset by rotation improvement. Gibson is overperforming but everybody has been pretty shaky, something I don't expect to see all season.

    I'm not sure, but I think the strategy started when Gardy was gone, and has continued since he returned. Whenever they get a big lead, they pull CC for Mastro. Not sure how I feel about it, but Mastro has range, and CC hasn't played much in the OF.

    Also, do you let Gibson go another inning? Either him or Pelfrey is going to have to pitch on short rest next week, since they both pitch today. Gibby is at 92 pitches...

    My thoughts were that it's cold out, let him warm up and let Mastro run around a little, and let's get some speed in the outfield and get this game over. Plus Cowbell is slow.

    In the case of a doubleheader on a cold day, I think it's a solid plan. You want Colabello's bat out there for game two.

    7 nothing game would be a good time to have Burton pitch. The grand slam he gives up would only make It 7-4.

    I assume they are resting him for the second game since we are up 7 right now
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Well, it's warmed up to the 60s here in ChiTown today. Better stay up that way now or I'll have to head back to Florida.
