Can we PLEASE stop dissecting Roberto Osuna’s struggles?

September 7, 2017

Trying to figure out why Roberto Osuna has struggled carries no benefit whatsoever. 

Barring a biblical comeback, the Blue Jays are not making the playoffs. Therefore, everything from now until the end of the regular season is a moot point. So why bother making a big deal about the blown saves? 

I am not an expert, nor do I have access to the clubhouse. Maybe he’s tired and that would be completely understandable. He’s done more the past three seasons then some players have done in an entire career. He warrants a chance to figure things out and clearly deserves a break once the season finishes. Don’t forget that the Jays have played an additional month in back-to-back seasons. That’s a lot of extra baseball. 

That doesn’t necessarily mean to ignore the issue. But to worry about it now when everything is fait accompli is pointless. If the struggles continue into the 2018 season, than we can start having discussions. 

So until then, kindly cool it. You’re only wasting oxygen. Shit happens and we all go through slumps. 

Seriously, just leave the poor guy alone.

A short note about Roberto Osuna

June 27, 2017

It was a tough weekend, n’est-ce pas?

When I found out Roberto Osuna was dealing with anxiety, it was like getting hit by a sack of bricks. Afterall, he’s only 22-years-old.

I enthusiastically applaud Osuna for speaking out. That took an incredible amount of strength and could not have been an easy decision to make. 

It was great to see him pitch the final frame of Sunday’s victory; and like you, I wish him only the very best. His health is far more important than wins/losses and whether he’s available out of the bullpen or not.
