Don't want to be that guy... but it would be really nice if the Metropolitans of New York managed a win in their final game today... but just in case... think we should consider signing CoCo to a one-day contract?

Alex 'slappa da bass mon'


This... is... a sight for a sore-eyed Blue Jays fan after a long season. Not sure if this has been posted here before, but it was the first time I'd seen it. Alex might need to get the band back together to write the '2012 Blue Jay Blues', a song about hardships, pain, and Tommy Johns.

It sounds like he really enjoys playing football. Hopefully, he has some brain left in him for a baseball career after this dries up. "I think about football all the time.

SSS: 2nd Rd Pick Chase DeJong is Dominating the GCL


The Blue Jays' 2012 2nd Round pick, 18-year old Chase DeJong, is currently mowing down batters in the GCL. His pitching line currently reads: 8 IP, 3 H, 11 K, 0 BB, 0 R. He is being used strictly in a relief role but its unclear what the team's plans for him will be after this year. If he keeps dominating as he has, I wouldn't be surprised to see him get to Bluefield before the end of the year.
