Who? Jays Baseball

Over the weekend i caught a few games of the blue jays-indians series on sportsnet. Now, I've always been a jays fan but this year I dont feel like im watching the jays. it felt like some two-bit minor league team who wasnt in kansas anymore. For obvious reasons this was because of thier out right impatent offence at opne point held scoreless for 31 innings straight. Yes that did bother me but this was about something more, while listening to Jamie Campbell do his best "average announcer" impression listing the lineup i thought to myself, these arent the jays who are these people. Barajas catching, wikerson in left, who couldnt catch a cold out there, Velandia at short, Scutaro and inglett aswell. but that didnt bother me as much as the addition on kevin mench, am I then only one who remembers mench cutting down doc halladay a few years back during a phenominal streak of pichting and in turn stole a cy young from him. Now, I know someone somewhere "he didnt mean"it or "thats just part of the game" I dont really care. when someone injures an institution like roy halladay, as a jays fan, you must loath that player till the end of his days an who knows the jays probably would have made the playoffs if doc was healthy, i like to think so...this is alvin up north and thats what grinds my gears.
