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.
