Tough Crowd

Geez..I thought the Chicago media was quick to throw in the towel. I guess even the Canadian press loves its knee-jerk reactions...

UPDATE: I found this amusing...

There is no denying that the injury bug has stung the TORONTO BLUE JAYS of late. Despite the bumps and bruises, the team continues to work hard on the field of play and in the community. As a way to keep recent headlines in perspective, the Blue Jays will host "JAYS ANATOMY" NIGHT on Wednesday May 16, 2007.

The team is asking fans to help in their road to recovery. Fans attending the May 16 contest versus Baltimore can show team pride and support by donating First Aid supplies in a symbolic gesture to stop the bleeding. The first 5,000 fans, with a valid game night ticket, who make a donation, will receive a complimentary Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap. Supplies collected will in turn be given to the Canadian Red Cross to assist in their community outreach.

"There is no denying that the bumps and bruises have tested our team and fans," commented V.P. of Marketing, LAUREL LINDSAY. "But we are Toronto and we will not give up. We're asking fans to help us mend a little faster by coming out, donating first aid items and cheering us on to victory."

I was going make a crack about how the truth was bruised by J.P. Ricciardi, but it seemed too easy...
