Rough first costs Richmond


Richmond, looking more and more like a fifth starter

Richmond, looking more and more like a fifth starter

To be honest, I don’t know what a balk is in baseball. I have a general idea, but I’m in no position to make the call. For that reason, I don’t. So why does every other fan at Rogers Centre feel the need to scream balk everytime an opposing pitcher as much as steps off the rubber? You even get some morons screaming with no runners on base. From now on, let the umpires do the job — though it’s sometimes hard to believe, they do actually know the rules.

Anyway, now that I’ve got that off my chest, today’s game: The Jays opened a four-game set with Minnesota and were finished before Scott Richmond even got an out. The Twins scored five times in the first and went on to win 6-3 behind three hits from some catcher named Joe Mauer. Any chances of a comeback were foiled when Aaron Hill left in the third inning after learning his wife had gone into labour in Florida. Awesome for the Hills, not so good for the Jays chances of winning a couple games this series.

Ricky Romero looks to get the Jays back on track tomorrow night, as he faces Minnesota’s Brian Duensing.
