The Mockingbird

Prove me wrong, kid. Prove me wrong…

A whole two weeks of decent hitting after I wrote this article saying that Russ Adams’ season had completely gone off the rails and his career with the Blue Jays was pretty much over, he’s back with the Blue Jays. And this isn’t even the Toronto Star messing around this time, it’s official.

In retrospect, sending Hector Luna straight to the majors when the team we got him from didn’t like him in AAA was a little silly. He looked lost at the plate and not much better in the field.

Adams had a few games at third before his promotion, so he will probably be used as an utility infielder, especially with Troy Glaus probably needing days off from now until the end of the year. His throws across the diamond could be a bit of a circus, but at least we have another lefty bat on the bench.

  2. “His throws across the plate could be a bit of a circus”

    That’s like saying in WWII “Germany invading Russia might result in some casulties.”

  3. I did mean to say across the diamond, not the plate…but come to think of it, converting him to middle relief that we use as often as Jason Frasor would probably have fewer disastrous consequences.
