The Next Big Thing
No word from any of the more reputable outlets, home pages, talking heads. No roster moves. But a Syracuse Blog is reporting that the reason Adam Lind was removed from yesterday’s game was that he has been promoted to the major league club:
Lind, who entered Friday with a .330 batting average, six home runs and 50 RBIs, was removed from the game after the third inning. Toronto had promoted the 24-year-old outfielder.
Kind of odd that what should really be headline-grabbing news is hidden on the second page at the end of some generic quotes from Lind and Jordan DeJong, who don’t mention it directly. But then their manager makes a denial that anything has changed which really sounds that a confirmation that something major has:

I’m running with it. (Out of sheer desperation for it to finally be true).
