It’s not just a reference to that craptacular Kansas ballad from 1977 - Adam Lind is officially back, and he’s kicking ass and taking pitcher’s names.
Tuesday night he went 4 for 5, stopping just a triple short of hitting for the cycle. His 3-run shot in the 7th propelled the Jays back to a 10-8 win, a game which they trailed twice but still managed to get the “W”.
The statistics since Adam Lind has returned from the minors are phenomenal. He’s hitting .375 with 22 RBI’s in just a matter of 21 games. If there was any doubt Adam Lind being the next Jays superstar, he has silenced the critics with his bat. There is no question that he is now the starting left fielder for the rest of the season.
So much for Reed Johnson or Shannon Stewart.
