Of course the Jays offense isn't looking like the best in the world either...
Paul Swydan
6:21
No, but they're on the road and faced a very good starter.

Nationals have to be "under the radar," right? Perfect storm of badness hit them last year and now they are completely written off by most fans, it seems.
Paul Swydan
6:22
As I said in the staff predictions post, the Nats are sort of a post-hype sleeper team.

What percentage of Rocco Baldeilli's value as a 1B coach comes from serving as a living reminder to prospects that there's no guarantee they'll make it?
Paul Swydan
6:22
That, but also he was a pretty good baserunner, was he not?

Blue Jays on pace for 0 home runs this year

Paul, after stroman how concerned are you about their rotation? Just took a glance and its.. Shaky in my opinion.
Paul Swydan
6:23
Very concerned.

James Loney MVP is a glue horse.
Paul Swydan
6:23
There it is!
Pretty sure someone called that earlier.

would jose abreu count as darkhorse mvp?
Paul Swydan
6:23
He definitely would.
Mark
6:24
I'd say 3 runs in 6 innings vs Archer is pretty good, actually.
B.B. Rodriguez
6:24
Are people not worried about the Rays bullpen? I just saw Dana Eveland...
Trainman
6:24
Rocco baldelli.. Blast from the past
Lenard
6:24
Rocco had some sort of illness that forced him to retire, it wasn't performance, if I remember correctly.
Paul Swydan
6:24
I believe that is accurate.

Tulo's bat is giving me... no, enough is enough for today
Joe

Let's hear it Bip
Vin

Tulo hands were so quick on that swing
Lenard
Paul Swydan
6:25
There you go.
Mark

Eh, the Jays rotation is better than it gets credit for. But even if you don't buy that, like KC last year the Jays defence will make them outperform expectations/peripherals.
Paul Swydan
6:26
That's a fair point. It's going to be a good season.
Bork

Please continue Bip you're helping out my tumblr fanfic

Here comes Dana eveland!

Stroman coming back out next inning now that it's not close?
Paul Swydan
6:26
Yeah, he's only at 81 pitches.
6:27
Would be quite the statement if Stroman can get a < 100 pitch CG on Opening Day.
Sam Clifford
6:27
Fancy new leg-kick in Tulo's swing.
Paul Swydan
6:27
Tulo has always had a little leg kick.
Trainman
6:28
Stroman could go the whole 9 unless he has a few hiccups.
Shirtless George Brett

The Royals also had a really, really good bullpen and werent afraid to use it. Pulled starters earlier then almost anyone.
