Goodbye, Alex

Like The Blue Jay Hunter, my desktop collection of baseball toys has just gotten a little more passé.

Who will thirteen-year-old girls cheer for at the Rogers Centre now?

I hope Rios earns his playing time in CF and thrives. I don't understand, however, why the Jays couldn't even get a box of donuts for him. Was there really nothing on the scrap heap in Chicago?

What kind of Rios trinkets do you have? Luckily for me, it's just a figurine and a bobblehead. I feel bad for the folks who have Alex Rios jerseys.

It had to be done, but sadness is there.

I just have the bobblehead.

I feel somewhat bad for folks with Rios jerseys, but I consider him respectable enough that I wouldn't be too embarrassed to wear it.
