He’s Not a REAL Doctor, You Know…
Somewhat overshadowed by the Jays’ best comeback in recent memory (and Josh Towers’ first win in a very long time- doesn’t he look happy??)
was the fact that the Doc was TERRIBLE out there for the third time in 4 starts. He swears it’s just mechanics, that he isn’t “getting on top of the ball”, that his location was a little off but his health has absolutely nothing to do with it. That he’s somehow gone from Cy Young in April to hanging every pitch due to a lack of “execution”.
Ummm….yeah. We love you Doc. You’re a warrior. You work out harder in one day than I have my entire life, and come to spring training gunning like it’s the world series. But seeing that the last time you unexpectedly came apart at the seams and started serving it up on a tee you claimed the same thing- and then one day later your appendix violently exploded out of your body, I’m going to take your analysis of your own physical health four weeks after major surgery with a entire saltshaker.
Most players would still be lying on a beach somewhere, watching the team on the telly and lifting nothing but pint glasses. And for that we applaud you. But it’s a 162 game season- next time he so much as scratches a toenail can someone scream at him to stay the @#$@#$ down??
