Wow, some not-so-fugly baseball. Young Mr Cecil tossed six innings, giving up four hits and zero runs. The Jays' offense wasn't exactly fireworks, but it was enough to get the job done tonight. Scott Rolen's hitting streak came to an end at 25 games. Bravo, GBOAT.
Don't worry, Cecil family, Sportsnet only showed you about 15 times, including when you had the signs backwards. Heh heh.
I had a total Twilight Zone/Coast-to-Coast-AM moment in the first inning, though:
Cecil had struck out Adam Jones... or so I thought. I did a li'l YEAH! fist pump, and watched pitcher and batter start walking away.
Then, Campbell and Tabler are laughing at Cecil for thinking it was strike three. Er, it was, thinks I.
Brian Butterfield comes out to argue it with the umpire. See? I knew it.
Then, Roy Halladay is laughing at the whole situation from the dugout.
Tomorrow, I'm going to cash in on the freebie sample of mlb.tv and watch that at-bat to see if there was something weird that fooled everyone into thinking there were three strikes.
Maybe I should just stop watching games on a beer and an empty stomach.
