Crash Davis is Rolling in His Grave

On the way out? Ex-drunk, hard as nails Italian gentleman Sal Fasano, a guy who bleeds baseball and gives award-winning interviews. The coolest Jays catcher of all time and the only guy who makes the Mendoza line look good.

Coming up for his first cup of coffee with the team? Curtis Thigpen. He’s a big Justin Timberlake fan. He likes to eat Yogurt. His nickname is “Sunshine“. His pet peeves are…

Welcome to the big leagues, kid. Big shoes to fill. You’d better MASH.

  1. So Sal is out for who? Thigpen is replacing Overbay, and will likely be gone before we have to use up a year of ML service.

  2. Well when Zaun comes back in a week or so I can’t see us carrying three catchers even if Phillips is backup for first. Except that’s what we’re doing right now I guess (but Thigpen may play some first? He did just before we called him up and played second a couple weeks ago).

    Sal might have 4-6 weeks as the third option behind the plate, but it would make more sense to have someone who can play utility…

  4. Wow, he is in a 9-game hitting streak. Though I think it would take a 30 gamer and new bionic jugs pitching arm for ol’Adams to get ML considreation again.

    As for old Sal and his fantastic stache. I think his days were numbered with Zauny coming back either way. The Overbay thing may have bought him more time, but dispite throwing guys out at a fantastic rate and (I quote) “blocking the plate like his younger sisters ovaries”, he’s still journeyman catcher would would do good helping the guys in AAA.

    It didn’t help either that Sunshine may have finally discovered his ML quality bat.

    On a high note, League is also up to the Fisher Cats.

  5. And 3 HR, no less…I don’t think they’re that down on Adams. I mean, all he has to do is regress to his rather disappointing 2005 season and he’s better than what we’ve got now. I know his arm is wonky and his brain is busted, but I just don’t believe he’s a .220 hitter.

    Sal is so ridiculously good behind the plate…if he could only find that .250 in him somewhere again, I’d take him over Phillips (what happened to his power?) in a heartbeat.

    And League’s throwing 95! With movement! Yahooooo!!!
