Everybody wants to know are the Toronto Blue Jays going to sign free agent pitcher David Price? It’s a 50/50 shot, cross that bridge when you get there. If they do Edwin Encarnacion is up for free agency at the end of next season as well as José Bautista. All of them will want $20-$30 million a year to be locked in until the end of their careers. You have 3 first basemen in Encarnacion, Justin Smoak, & Chris Colabello. Edwin Encarnacion has the biggest price tag by millions of $, & the newly acquired & signed Short Stop Troy Tulowitski will be making $20,000,000 a year for the next 4 years. Yet you have someone young, Ryan Goins, who’s glove is reminiscent of Roberto Alomar & is able to play 2B, SS, or 3B. He may not have a powerful swing but he gets on base. Whether they sign David Price or not, the end of the 2016 season could turn out to be a rebuilding year from 2017 on. I say throw money at David Price & either Bautista or Encarnacion. Maybe think about Tulowitzki at SS. I have nothing against any of the players personally, but I’d trade R.A. Dickey and Josh Thole also. Dickey has no clue where his one pitch (Knuckle ball) is going to end up & Thole is his personal catcher, who adds minimal offense. That would free up a PILE of cash. You’ve got the bones of a World Series winner the question is are you going to act on it now or let it slip away? Don’t forget the revenue increase just by making it to the playoffs, millions of viewers on TV, millions of fans in the seats, & millions sold on merchandise. Way more than in 1993!

The fact that Toronto sports analysts are talking about baseball on call in shows in November is a GIGANTIC NEON sign to Rogers Communications. You’re a multi billion dollar organization. Maybe open the purse strings & strike when the Jays are HOT?

Monday’s Rock It Out Blog

Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) with Stone Sour (Slipknot light) covering The Rolling Stones Sorry, wouldn’t let me work my magic?

A bunch of festivals in America during 2016. Halestorm played “Rock on the Range” a few years ago.

I’ve never heard of “Armored Saint”

Another song that won’t let me work my magic for you?

In Flames roadie documentary. In Flames are classified as a Swedish melodic death metal band. When I saw them on the final tour by ‘Sounds of the Underground’, an underground metal tour that James & I were at to see “Trivium”, the In Flames sound check was HILARIOUS & DISTURBING! A roadie came out to test the microphone & said “The little boys ass. The ass of a little boy” in a very thick Swedish accent!

American tour dates with Anthrax opening for Lamb of God. I always put on my iPod when I sleep & Lamb of God put me to sleep last night!

I know………it’s weird. Metal or hard rock has been my go to sleep music since I got my first CD player/Boom box.

My Grandparents, on my mother’s side of the family, got me a walkman in the 1980s & a cassette with it. Alabama. I try to avoid country music because so much of it has that southern twang to it. I began recording songs to cassettes from the radio in my bedroom. I do remember recording ‘Prince’ on AM radio. When 1300 CJME was a rock station.

David Bowie releases snippet of his new song.

James Corden & Alanis Morissette update her song ‘Ironic’

Pixar’s “Finding Dory” trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Joss Stone Temple Pilots” on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Here’s the original, just to compare. I think she did it very well.

Walk off the Earth shared it on Facebook……

Paramore song on new Guitar Hero Live.

Randy Blythe (Lamb of God vocalist) attacked in Ireland.

Songs I like, “Them Crooked Vultures” Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters) on drums, John Paul Jones on bass (Led Zeppelin) & Josh Homme on guitar & lead vocals (Queens of the Stone Age). I skipped past “Tenacious D” for 2 reasons. I don’t listen to them that often & it would be difficult to find appropriate songs.

If you’re getting this on Facebook, please share it?
