    I don't feel bad for the Jays, but rather the Jays fans. It was a little painful/frustrating to watch as a fan of the winning team, so I can't imagine what it was like for Jays fans.

    They didn't even have many good at bats. The Jays pitching was just awful.

    It was a total train wreck but a very entertaining half inning. Sometimes things just go terribly wrong and when you think they can't get any worse, they do. "An affront to all things baseball"? ... No, it wasn't. It was something you will probably never see again and it was great.

    You're clearly not familiar with Jays fans. As one who is, I couldn't be happier for them.

    Although I take exception to the 'very' in 'very bad team.'

    This was the article:

    Safe to assume you're OK with the "life-sucking" part?
    Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.

    No sympathy for Jays fans- sorry.
    Saw a story somewhere saying that the 8-walk inning tied a Senators record set (I think) back in the 30's vs. Yanquis... guess we know the outcome to that particular tilt.
    So, we've been there, too.

    Ugly baseball happens. 20-10 final scores happen. The Cubs happen.
    When your team benefits, take it.
    Don't look back at the corpse... nothing to see here, move along...

    Last night on the radio, I think Provus said the record was 11, which was the senators vs the Yankees, I think in the 40s.

    Was that it? Well, I stand corrected, thanks.
    Still our franchise holds the record, so if/when the Jays pass it, I'll be sure to weep into my beer for them.
