Toronto catcher J.P. Arencibia made his Major League debut yesterday. Not a bad start in The Show. He went 4-5 with 2 homers, a double, 3 RBI's and 3 runs scored. His first at-bat resulted in a first-pitch 2-run shot to left. I wouldn't put him in the Hall of Fame just yet but there haven't been too many debut's like Arencibia's who was called up to the bigs from AAA Las Vegas.
The Jays hit 8 home runs in yesterdays 17-11 pounding of the Rays. Jose Bautista smacked his Major League leading 34th dinger.
The Blue Jays are like a slow pitch softball team. They don't seem to care about anything but hitting home runs. They lead the big leagues in homers by a long shot with 175. Next best, the Bostons who have hit 146.
While they aren't going to get to the playoffs this year, they are a fun team to watch. Unless you are James Shields. Yesterday. He gave up 6-homers and 8-earned runs in 4-innings. That will inflate the old ERA.
