Numbers matter in baseball. Even though Kawasaki has lower numbers than Jose Reyes at Short Stop, he has many more games played than Reyes. I don’t think Reyes has even played 20 games this year yet? $10,000,000 for a Short Stop that I’ve seen one time that he’s made a real effort for the ball before he missed it and it rolled into the outfield. Sure lots of people call Kawasaki a team mascot. He’s been in the major league filling in for Reyes since he was injured after 10 or so games. Reyes was back 2 or 3 weeks ago. Reyes’ impact hasn’t shown anything and why did they bother bringing Brett Lawrie up to the Majors for 2 games before 4 days for the All-Star game? He wasn’t really doing much offensively before he was injured, he wasn’t going to be a huge gain and turn the team around? They should have left him in AAA to work on himself some more.
The 2013 season isn’t mathematically over for the Blue Jays, but it sure looks as though they have a deep hole to crawl out of. Last place in the AL east, and the wild card spot, they were expected to be a playoff contender. They have all of these great players with veteran players to boost their moral and nothing has changed. They haven’t gelled as a team yet.
Brett Lawrie came back and they put him at 2nd base after just 2 AAA starts at 2nd base?! What a waste of a strong and accurate throwing arm. Finally today they said he’ll stay at 3rd base for the rest of the season. I’m not an expert on baseball at all! I liked it when I’d show up at my games and knew it was going to be Chris Fraser at 3rd base, batting 9th. Everyday during my last 2 years. Couldn’t hit a ball if my life depended on it, not too bad at fielding though.
I say trade Josh Johnson (a big name starting pitcher) and Jose Reyes ($10,000,000 Short Stop) as a package deal, somebody will jump at the chance to have them. Then get a decent starting pitcher for them. We’ll write this year off and again all of the fans can say “Next year I guess” as we always do.
