Skydome has always been a hitters ballpark. I have to wonder if this isn’t a bit of Anti Canadian or Anti Bautista sentiment. In my opinion lots of teams do this, it is one of those things as to when they get caught or get too obvious in doing so.

Either way, will be interesting to see how much traction this story gets or if it will remain an ESPN story. Noticed CNNSI reported nothing in todays webpage MLB articles.

I saw that guy in white…It was Steve Williams in his Caddie jumpsuit just before Augusta. He was just stretching…Sheesh.

Shoddy journalism. Manipulating stats and facts as much as possible to prove a theory that 4 scorned players have. Yet not a single ex Jay has admitted the Jays cheating or made mention of this man in white.

I expect this kind of stuff from TMZ.

I’ve never been so angry after reading a story.

They didn’t speak to any Jays or former Jays to verify the claims, they didn’t do a good job of manipulating the stats they did have because most major league teams hit better at home then they do on the road so the numbers they provided tell us very little.

It’s just slanderous bullshit that they won’t be taken to task for because they are shitting on a team with virtually no following in the United States.

It’s hard to believe that they are so far up the collective asses of the Red Sox and Yankees that a bunch of hearsay could lead to this.

Blue Jays promotion people, are you listening? Friday should be Free White T-Shirt night for everyone in the outfield section. Can’t be more than 5 bucks for a basic white t-shirt for them.

Best thing to happen to the Jays in a decade. To be elevated to the same level as the larger market complaining teams in an article by an elite medium such as ESPN AND be put in the position of being the sympathetic wrongly accused party is a goldmine for a team in the hinterland of baseball culture. Any publicity is good, obviously.

So today on the Gord Stellick show, Greg Zaun was a guest. Gord asked him about the ESPN report and Zaun said it lacked credibility as it was all unnamed sources. He went on to say it was like the Mitchell Report. Hmmmm gee I wonder if perhaps that is because his name was apparantly on that list. Not sure comparing an ESPN unnamed source is the same as having an MLB sanctioned full report into steroids is the same thing. Glad to hear Mr. Zaun doesn’t let his personal agenda influence how views reports related to current day Jays related stories. Found that rather interesting.

The white t-shirt giveaway is a brilliant idea, and as a result, will never happen because ownership are cheap pricks when it comes to promotions. Or, they’ll only give away 5,000 at most.
