The kings of Spring
Well I’ve been away from the blog for the past few weeks but I can’t keep my silence any longer. The Jays are killing it in Grapefruit League action and it’s time for everyone to notice.
I know as much as the next guy that this means nothing. Going 13-4 in Spring Training is nothing to get excited about….unless it’s your team doing it. In that case it’s awesome.
The win’s are nice of course but the stats surrounding it are more than just a mirage. Travis Snider has 4 homers and 13 RBI. Jose Bautista is hitting .348 with three homers and eight RBI. Brett Lawrie, though injured at the moment, is hitting over .600 with five stolen bases.
Brett Cecil has a 0.90 ERA over 10 innings. Ricky Romero is yet to yield a run in nine innings. Brandon Morrow has given up just one run over eight innings.
All this winning is great of course, but here’s hoping they leave something in the tank for when the games start to count.
