Apparently JP has a problem with Dunn, and the hard feelings are mutual. So much for those Dunn-to-Toronto trade rumours.

Is it smart to talk such trash about a guy who would be (by far) the best hitter on an offense-starved team like the Jays?

Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

[with apologies for the real-time post] Offense-starved is a great description right now. Dave Bush has one of those things happening that you aren't supposed to talk about after 7 innings.

I guess you can't even ALLUDE to a no-hitter out of risk of jinxing someone, because Bush not only lost the no-hitter, but the Brewers nearly blew an 8-0 lead when the Jays scored one in the 8th and 6 (!) in the 9th. You'd almost expect to hear that Eric Gagne pitched the 9th, but shockingly, he didn't.

How are Ricciardi and or Gibbons still employed as the Blue Jays circle the drain only a month later than they did last season. History did hold up though, as much as Baltimore in '05 went into the shitter once Ryan blew saves to Boston and New York, the Blue Jays decided to quit once he blew saves to the Angels and Yankees.
Interesting question for Blue Jay fans: You have Halladay signed through 2011. Do you shop him around the National League to prospect rich teams and demand 4 of a teams top 5 prospects for an ace who is signed for another 3 years? Something with that team just never seems right.

I AM a Cub fan. But I honestly wasn't trying to do that to him.

Ricciardi and Gibbons were given a mulligan after literally two-thirds of the roster spent time on the DL last season. As a hardcore Jays fan, the LAST person I could deal is Roy Halladay. Trade Rios, trade Hill, trade Wells, and definitely trade Burnett, but don't touch the best pitcher in the league. Plus, I don't trust JP to obtain a package for anything close to what Halladay is actually worth. This is a guy who thinks Wilkerson and Shannon Stewart were solid pickups.

Wow, those are pretty harsh words. I'd like to see Dunn traded to within the division now just to watch the revenge games.

He was *supposed* to be pitching on Monday. We had tickets on Monday. They decided Randy needed an extra day's rest. Grrrr. (Hey, given that the D'Backs are going to be awful, we've got to get excited about what we can.
