Results were NEGATIVE??? Oh, wait…

Even though it looks like he’s just been arrested…

It sounds like A.J. is going to be OK. Which is pretty amazing the way this season has been going so far. Seeing that when we started this mess Burnett and Thomas are the only two guys you would have bet the farm on hitting the DL sometime this year, I didn’t even blink when A.J. buckled over in pain. Instead it turns out he’s just sore because we’ve been leaving him out there for 130 pitches lately. Thanks, Gibby. And leaving Fasano in to bat with the tying run on second? Equally impressive.

It wasn’t really going to go out, but Hill crushed that ball in the 9th and it just died in the Bay air. I can’t seem to find any digital evidence of Randy Winn’s catch at the wall, which leads me to believe they just reran the tape from this insanity the day before:

One last shot: Hill has now hit into 14 double plays this year, which ties him for the lead in the league and is 1 fewer than he hit into ALL last year. I guess rolling over balls is the downside of his newfound power?

  1. Did his arm fly off yet? I didn’t hear it hit the ground, perhaps its still hanging by a thread.

  5. As sure as you can be when the Jays announce something. Though if they were lying about it being his shoulder, it would have to be covering up something like a brain aneurysm. He’s in the dugout right now, back from the MRI, but no announcement yet.

  8. All indications are he’s only missing one start, but he had the MRI at 9am yesterday and they haven’t said anything since. Which is odd. And scary.

  9. Any indication AJ’s Chili Race Victory on Saturday had anything to do with his trip to the DL?
