THROW BACK THURSDAY? #TBT?

Toronto Blue Jays GM pulled off the unthinkable trade this morning for David Price, among the top 2-4 starting pitchers in the game. The only problem is he’ll be a free agent at the end of the season in September or October if they make it to the playoffs? NOBODY saw that coming!

Yes the Blue Jays won with their “new” short stop! 8 runs for the Blue Jays new short stop, Troy Tulowitzki, who spent almost 10 years in Colorado, finished the game with a 2 run home run & 2 doubles for a total of 4 RBIs & 2 runs scored. Do I expect this for every game? Not at all. His defense is also superior to Jose Reyes. He drove in 4 runs & scored 2 or 3 including his home run? Welcome to the Blue Jays, I hope the GM has another “ninja like trade” in the works for a pitcher. Nobody saw this trade coming so it’s been called “ninja”/”league of shadows” trade, despite this being talked about in the off season & during the month of May again. I think Tulowitzki just shut up all of the GM haters. Jose Bautista was right though when he spoke to the media saying “It’s a good baseball move, but not one we really needed”. They were all thinking a trade would mean a big name pitcher would be coming to Toronto. The trade deadline is tomorrow. I won’t be close to even opening this door. Friday you’re on your own. I’ll be on the couch watching the activity in MLB.

All of this is great but ay 51W-51L it seems too late with 60 games left in the season? 2 or 3 guys have a lot of pressure on them to carry the Jays to the playoffs, especially with 13 games against the New York Yankees

Now that so many sporting events have adopted the challenge flag, it needs to be changed somewhat. Make the on field officials responsible for their mistakes. Don’t let them hide behind “Oh, the guy in whatever city called it after the review”. No. Have the head official at the game & the challenging coach watch the video together. If the coach isn’t satisfied with the result & begins to argue, toss him from the game. Make the officials at the game take responsibility for the call. Be it CFL, NFL, MLB, NHL or the NBA. I only watch Blue Jays baseball & as much CFL as possible, & a very minimal amount of NHL. I don’t know if the NBA has a challenge rule?

New Finger Eleven out tomorrow.

Songs I like. “Mr. Big” The only ’80s hair metal band I like. Only one CD for #TBT!

Yes their “Power Ballad”. I assume my parents bought the CD for me?  Based on this tune, then quickly realized there were much better songs on the album. I was young 10-12 I’m guessing.

Always check out the Rock It Out Blog on facebook or www.youtube.com/rockitoutblog
