This post is a little more personal than it is baseball related. Apologies for being absent for the last few months and I promise to get back to regular posts soon enough.
While the Jays season and bullpen has been a little bit of a roller coaster since the beginning of the season – do yourself a favour and don’t look back at anything I wrote about why this bullpen was going to help them repeat.
The Jays seem to be figuring things out as the calendar turns into August. The team seems to be hitting again, Josh Donaldson is quietly having another MVP type season, Edwin is on fire, Tulo seems to have resurrected himself and the starting pitching has been beyond expectations. Put this all together and it should make for interesting times ahead in the next couple of months.
There is another reason I am looking forward to the next couple of months (and years) ahead. My wife and I are expecting our first Blue Jays fan who is set to arrive in January, 2017.
While the kid may miss the excitement of what I hope will be another post-season this Fall, I’m already looking forward to sharing next season with the little guy or girl! There is lots of excitement ahead on and off the field, and I’m sure lots of sleepless nights.
While no name has been decided yet, I am pushing for Ernie…
Talk soon and enjoy the game!
