The Axe is ready to fall

Thursday, June 19, 2008  |  by 

Last night’s 5-4 loss to the Brewers was pretty much a testament to the Jays season thus far. Initially the bar was set low, then the team gained a bit of momentum only to fall short by grounding into a game-ending double play. that pretty much sounds like the season so far, doesn’t it.

Just like Wilner said, there seems to be a very dark atmosphere surrounding the clubhouse, and all it will take is just a few more losses before something big happens. It’s apparent that John Gibbons will lose his job; which I don’t necessarily agree with, but someone has to be the scapegoat for this disappointing season. It’s just unfortunate that it has to be him.

On the rumour front, we can pretty much take Adam Dunn out the equation for the “big bat” that the Jays plan on signing before the all-star break. On Wednesdays with J.P., Ricciardi called out Dunn saying that he “doesn’t have a passion for baseball”. Well, for someone who doesn’t have a passion for the game, he certainly has a passion for hitting 18 HR’s and 43 RBI’s this season. Those totals are far and above any player so far this season on the Jays. So for someone who doesn’t have a “passion for playing baseball”, I’d willing to deal with that if we can welcome his 30+ HR’s and 100+ RBI’s.
