    You couldn't write some of this stuff !
    I was just going to put that up for you in case you hadn't seen it Sid. They showed it in the middle of the A's game.

    Thanks John. I just saw it this morning. The Jays might be losing some but they are trying to make it as entertaining as possible !

    This article has a bit of background on Jays regular catcher, Russell Martin, playing third base last night.

    Maybe Huntington will get a chance at centre forward before the end of the season?

    Well the A's have just been swept at Anaheim - I mean even the Jays won at Anaheim!!!!!!!!

    The only bright bit of the game yesterday was the A's pitcher Kendall Graveman who did an unassisted double play, which apparently is a pretty rare thing. And I saw it "live"!!!!!!!

    Get this. Graveman's unassisted double play was the first by an A's pitcher since Blue Moon Odom on July 11, 1971. And Odom happenecd to be at Anaheim to see Graveman's!

    Go on, I'll say it - these things happen once in a Blue Moon!! BOOM

    In fact, quite a few commentators didn't know how to score it.....it's a "1 Unassisted Double Play"

    Geddy Lee of 'Rush' attends a lot of Jays games and scores the game in his match programme - apparently he's very knowledgeable!

    Jays home to Rays this weekend - despair abounds !!

    Man up ffs Sid. I was reading about the Orioles' 1988 season the other day. They went 0-21 and didn't win their first game until 29th April.....now that's a shocking start by any measure (actually, it's the worst ever start to a season in modern MLB history)

    Interestingly? Yes! Obviously the good name of the family was at stake.
