Mission ’13, Game 9: Tigers win 11-1

I didn’t see/hear the game, and it seems like time well spent on my part. Suffice it to say that a starting rotation with an ERA of 7.59 won’t win many games, let alone the important ones toward the end of the season.

tsn.ca reports that “The Blue Jays have not lived up to expectations early because of poor pitching.” Apparently they believe that one run should be sufficient against the defending American league champs, and that the early-season error-fest is within the bounds of normal.

Individuals have performed well but, as a team, the Blue Jays have stunk it up in every facet of the game. Some who have performed well are the ones out of whom I would have expected the least. They’ve been pleasant and welcome surprises in an otherwise dismal first two weeks of the 2013 season. Those players are: JP Arencibia; Jose Reyes; Brett Cecil; JA Happ; Aaron Loup; Casey Janssen. Steve Delabar and Melky Cabrera get an honourable meention, just for not being horrible. Mark DeRosa has been productive and played three different positions: he gets a Participant ribbon.

The ’93 Jays were 20-19 on May 19 after a 10-5 loss to the Red Sox. It seemed to kick start them. Is an 11-1 shellacking this teams wake-up call? It remains to be seen…
