C'mon Jays, where the hell is the offense???

It's now 2-1 Indians after 7 innings of game two and the Jays look like the Cardinals do when they face some no-name rookie lefthander.  They're just completely baffled by Cleveland pitching to this point.

EDIT: And that's how it ended. Geez, the Cubs would clobber the Indians. C'mon Toronto, WAKE UP!!!!!

I know, it's been completely pathetic! I figured they would take one of the games and Cleveland. The thing about Kluber, is that they have hit him really well the last couple years. They had their chances Friday, they just couldn't put together a clutch hit. I thought Estrada pitched better than Kluber, but he made one mistake.

I have no idea what the Jays were doing on Saturday. Donaldson is hitting the ball all over the park, and Encarnacion is okay. Bautista has looked awful. Tulowitzki and Martin are MIA. Like you said, WAKE UP!!!!

Well since the Jays/Indians games have been so boring I'm going to watch Gotham for the first hour tonight.

Sorry OBF, I'll pick up this game at 8PM my local time, about an hour in.

If it's anything like the last couple games, you won't have missed much.

A great episode of Gotham is over so now I joined the ALCS. 1-1 and it's only the third inning. You're right, I didn't miss much.

Michael Saunders homerun. Then a bunch of Jays popping out. Apparently they've swapped strikeouts for popouts.

And I'm just in time for a Napoli homer.  Geez...

That was belted.

I was just checking Yahoo and I see Trevor Bauer had to leave the game in the first inning because the gash he suffered repairing his stupid drone started bleeding again. If I was a teammate or even an Indians fan, I'd be pissed. What a dumbass. When you're a pitcher your team is counting on to help get them to the World Series you don't do anything that could jeopardize the way you make your living; i.e. your arm or your hand. What a dolt.

Yup. Bizarre injury too. Of course, the way the Jays are playing, it doesn't matter anyway. This is depressing.

These announcers are constantly going on about Cleveland. I think I'd take last year's announcers and Harold Reynolds.

Well let's be honest, there really isn't much to go on about Toronto in this series. Man are they sleepwalking or what?

Yeah, they are done. The starters have been really good, the defense has been excellent, and the bullpen has been lights out, but the offense has been comatose. It's not like there are any signs of life either. They might win today, but I don't even hold out much hope for that. It's unfortunate that it could be Encarnacion and Bautista's last game/games in Jays' uniforms and they are going out like this.

Okay, some of these are just that, but some are funny.

hahaha some clever ones.  I like the one about the "split-finger pitch".

They were showing that on MLB Tonight this morning and Harold was really grossed out.  They kept asking if Bauer could pitch again in this series if needed and Reynolds kept saying "Are you kidding?  Did you see that thing?  That finger just exploded!"

I guess I might as well watch some of the last Jays game of the year while I'm working.

This series is like watching a microcosm of the Cardinals' season. Living by the homer and dying by the homer; unable to get the big single when you need it.

Looks like the Jays are going to live for another day. But they keep saying the only team in MLB that didn't lose four consecutive games all season was the Cleveland Indians and that's what would have to happen for Toronto to make it to the World Series.

Yeah, but the only team to ever come back from 3-0 was the 2004 Red Sox. They won the World Series and were coached by Francona.

Either way, they live at least one more day and have a chance to put up a little fight.

What you mentioned before about the homers is 100 percent true. It's great that they have all this power, but it doesn't always work. You need someone who can get a clutch single, steal a base, leg out an infield single, etc. The Jays walk a TON, and that helps, but it doesn't move runners up as well. They don't steal or hit and run often because they wait for the bomb. The offense is potent, but it's sometimes "feast or famine"

It's looking more and more like it's going to be the last game of the year for the Jays.

Looks like they went back to sleep. I thought maybe last night's game woke the team up but it doesn't look that way.

It's one of those slow-throwing lefties in his second major league start. That's a death knell to begin with.

They just said the kid hasn't thrown a pitch faster than 87 mph.

Oh I automatically write those games off for St. Louis too. Funny thing is the Cardinals have been like that ever since I started following them in second grade. They've had trouble with soft-tossing lefties for decades. And if that lefty is facing them for the first time you might as well just put it in the loss column

That's been pretty much the same for the Jays as well.

It's really strange. Randy Johnson, Roger Clemens, and now guys like Clayton Kershaw or Jake Arietta? Those guys don't give us too much trouble most of the time. Start some slow-balling, kid southpaw and we make him look like Cy Young. The Cardinals usually give the so-called "elite" pitchers a battle but not some snot-nosed punk lefty.

That's very much the same with the Jays. I don't know how many pitchers the Jays made to look like Cy Young earlier in the year. It's so frustrating!

I'm hoping Francona will of outsmarted himself, but he's a darned good manager.
