Not Flying Under the Radar, Off the Radar

It must be because we’re north of the 59th parallel otherwise how could someone like Peter Gammons completely miss the boat in his article about teams that will surprise. I think with Doc gone and the Jays being one of the majors youngest teams, everyone has just assumed they will be one the deadbeats of of the American League. So fine, let us fly under the radar and let teams take us for granted. We’ll turn that into victories.

All I can say is WOW!!!

How can you not get excited about our starting pitching when you see a performance like the one by Dana Eveland yesterday (6 IP, 4 H, 8 SO). If such an overpowering day doesn’t solidify his spot in the starting rotation, then I don’t know what he has to do to convince people he belongs. I guess the Jays will just have to call the Diamondbacks to get a little Eveland love. Having once been acquired by trade, don’t you think they would love to have him in their rotation now? He may have to bide his time in the pen until he gets his opportunity through underperformance or injury to one of the other starters. In any case it’s a nice problem to have.
