Is it just me or does Rocky Cherry seem a bit gassed right now?
At this pace, he could end up leading the team in appearances.
Aaron Hill's 17th home run tied the Blue Jays' single-season record for second basemen. You can probably guess who held the record. A former Oriole. Lived at Skydome. Launched the spit heard 'round the world. At one time was arguably the best overall player in baseball, and an absolute joy to watch in the field.
Where have you gone, Roberto Alomar?
Dave Trembley was listing pitchers he expected to keep in 2008 - Erik Bedard, Jeremy Guthrie, Adam Loewen, Jamie Walker, Chad Bradford and Brian Burres. The rest, he said, was wide open.
Someone mentioned Daniel Cabrera, and here's what followed:
"Cabrera, because he gives us innings. We're not going to win here or be able to compete here just because somebody gives you innings. They're going to have to be successful. They're going to have to go out there and give you a chance to win. There becomes a point in time where potential goes out the window. It's results now. Results have to get better.
"That's prospect status. And prospect status should be over in your third or fourth year in the big leagues. You should be producing. You should be producing and helping the team to win. I think Cabrera should be on that list."
Meanwhile, Rocky Cherry should be in the dugout. And here comes Trembley to the rescue.
