On the bright side, Toronto might have a better idea tonight why Roy Halladay has gone into the tank since the month of May began.
With roughly a quarter of the Jays’ opening day roster either on the DL or disfigured for life, I’m going to use my powers as Editor In Chief to remove the March item where I predicted Toronto would repeat their 2nd place finish in the AL East.
Weavie Stonder I (0-6, 14.32 ERA) has been placed on the 15 day DL by Seattle. Australian P Ryan Rowland-Smith (above) was promoted from Tacoma and is expected to be on hand for tonight’s tilt with the Yankees.
Bad enough for Houston’s Chris Burke that he’s on his way to Round Rock, but just 18 months removed from his postseason heroics, the centerfielder is having his big league roster spot claimed by a Sultan Of Sloth lookalike.
