The Hurler’s Prayer

July 25, 2018

Coach in Heaven,
Fuel my strength.
Protect my arm.
Protect my shoulder.
Protect my ulnar collateral ligament.
Allow my pitches to find their targets, with the force to move mountains.
May flyballs land in gloves.
May ground balls stay in the infield.
Help me fool the opposition.
Fuel my strength.
In Cy Young’s name,
Amen.

Retro Blue Jays – How things looked in 1996

April 7, 2016

Posted by rskhtv.

The 1996 Blue Jays were…nothing special. Coming off an ugly showing the previous season, the team was in transition. Arguably, it was the first time fans such as myself heard the term “rebuild.”

But there were some good things that came out of the 1996 season. For example, Pat Hentgen became the second Blue Jay pitcher to win 20 games and topped things off by winning the Cy Young award – first in team history.

The Jays also showed off their musical skills.

But all of that had yet to occur as the team prepared for their 20th home opener.

As Rob Sinclair reported, the Jays were celebrating 20 seasons and starting fresh at the same time.

Doc Calls It Quits

June 12, 2014

The Spanish Sportscaster
informs me Doc has hung up his
cleats, glove and uniform.

My mind reflects on all those
1-run,
2-run,
3-run losses.

A little more run support
and things would have been different.

A couple more Cy Young awards
and Cooperstown would be an easier ticket.
