Losing Hope ...

By
145 games into the 2007 season, the Toronto Blue Jays are a far cry from where they started at the beginning of April. They are tired, injured, and clinging to a .500 record.

News this week of Vernon Wells’ offseason surgery, and Troy Glaus’ season-ending surgery were just two more blows to the already disappointing 2007 season. Couple that with a 5-game losing streak, and things are looking bleak for the 2007 Toronto Blue Jays.

After Monday’s devastating loss, I took a break from the Jays and refused to watch Tuesday’s game. Well, I didn’t miss much - the Jays lost 9-2. This is not to say I have given up on the Blue Jays, but it is much more evident that the team has already given up - not its fans.

A bright spot this week; it was announced that the Prime Minister of Defense John McDonald was elected for a second term. The Jays signed him to a 2 year 3.5 million dollar deal. It was good to see the Jays lock up the would-be Gold Glover to a multi-year deal. John McDonald has been one of the nice surprises of the ’07 season.

So where do the Jays go from here? Well, with the recent injuries, it looks like the backups will get a lot of playing time. Frasor, Towers, Lind, Adams, and others will get their chance to shine while Accardo, Janssen, Wells, and Glaus rest up for the ’08 season.
