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.
