The good news is that we won’t need to worry about Jose diving for a fly ball on cement in a meaningless game. Drink lots of water Jose, the Blue Jays need you back and healthy for Monday.
The major concern with today’s game is probably how watchable it will be with the notorious slow working Daisuke taking the mound for the Mets. He’s known for taking 30-40 seconds between pitches so hopefully the Jays are able to chase him before the game gets too ugly.
The Big Owe looked decent enough for baseball (mound issues aside) as watching on TV I didn’t mind the retro feel the game had, specifically without fans sitting directly behind home plate. It’s always hard to tell what the stadium is really like but with a full house it looked decent enough to me watching on TV.
