Can I get an Amen?
I just got home from work, otherwise I would have posted this earlier:
"The Blue Jays were in need of a pitcher after placing starter Shaun Marcum on the disabled list before Saturday’s game. Outfielder Adam Lind was recalled to take his roster spot, and new manager Cito Gaston said the team wanted Lind to play everyday".
It's about damn time. I don't need to go over the reasons why it's a good move, because I've mentioned it in almost every post. But I'm looking forward to seeing Lind playing LF for the future. Let's hope he gets off to a better start this time around!
In other news...
"The Toronto Blue Jays optioned outfielder Kevin Mench to Triple-A Syracuse after losing their seventh game in a row Saturday night and recalled right-handed pitcher Brandon League."
League is back! About damn time too. I don't know why they're bringing him up to essentially replace Marcum's spot - I figure Purcey would make more sense, or even John Parrish. The article points out League never started in the majors, so it's possible (read: damn near impossible) that League will start in Marcum's place.
Damn, League AND Lind called up in the same day. I'm pretty damn happy right now. There might actually be a reason to watch a game or two...
