The first drink of choice during spring training was a refreshing glass of Scott Richmond Kool-Aid. But now, the new beverage that's taking everybody by storm in Dunedin is Travis Snider's Mash Liquor.
Snider went wild today on Team USA in the Jays 6-5 win, and went 3 for 3 with 3 singles. That skyrockets his spring training batting average to an incredible .583. Yes I know, small sample size (only 10 at bats), but in my books Snider has already hit his way onto the team and can pretty much coast for the duration of spring training knowing he'll safely be with the team when they travel north close to April 6th. If Travis can keep this pace up, he might not only find himself in the Blue Jays starting lineup, he might also be hitting higher up in the lineup than the 8th or 9th spot. I don't want to seem too anxious, but Cito could even get crazy and pencil in Snider in the 6th or 7th spot behind Scott Rolen or Lyle Overbay.
So for the time being, don't feel guilty about getting hammered on Travis Snider's Mash Liquor. It's the only 100 percent mash liquor that doesn't cause liver pains!
