Bob was a real boob tonight. After taking a call from a real dipshit with a hard on for the Jays (“the propaganda”….what propaganda?), Bob does a complete turn around…..”ya know……ya got 3 guys from Miami, who were terrible… got a Cy Young winner, from a terrible team”…….um, YEAH! A Cy Young winner ON A SHIT TEAM! Isn’t that a good thing? It means he’s like, good and stuff?

Bob just loves being in the minority of any topic or discussion. He has made a very successful career out of it. It’s the main reason why I take nothing he says seriously because I don’t think he has any true knowledge of anything related to actual sport, you say black he’d say white.

Okay today I really felt worried about Bob’s memory. He struggled to remember WAMCO and couldn’t remember which team it came from. And he’d used WAMCO only a couple months ago when talking about the 93 Jays. But today he sounded like he legitimately couldn’t remember the acronym at all, or where it came from, or who he related to. Even when reminded, he couldn’t remember what the W stood for.

Bob wasn’t saying that the Jays will suck or that the players were bad. The context was him pointing out that there are reasons you could point to as to why the Jays might not work, that the season hasn’t happened yet. But, he clearly says that there’s a lot of reasons to be optimistic and he says “but if you’re going to go into a season only looking at the downsides, how are you going to have any fun?”

So it’s not fair to say that he was just ripping the Jays and did a turnaround. He was merely listing reasons why some people might be skeptical and not all on board that the Jays will auto-win.

Like, I like listening to Bob McCown, but I often list his weaknesses too. It doesn’t mean I’m doing a 180 on him or being a hypocrite, I’m merely being realistic.

(This isn’t saying whether Bob’s reasons are right or not though, he’s doing an NBA comparison to MLB which doesn’t work. Putting up good stats on a bad team in the NBA is different than that in MLB.)

I agree with you 100% Itchy! Bob has certainly changed his level of optimism of the Jays from the past 2 off-seasons. Again, when he was in the minority in thinking the Jays would be better then most people thought under Farrell everything was sunshine an lolly pops, now that most are predicting at minimum playoffs or bust he is backing off his stance. Not saying he thinks their going to be terrible but he wins either way, if their as expected an win then he knew it was coming 3 years ago, if they fall short and miss the playoffs well look what he said in February!

Only a moron would think the Jays will auto-win. Anything can happen. But I didn’t follow his logic. The “Cy Young winner from a crappy team” line was especially dumb.

I hope we are done with chili talk for 11 months.

Agree fully.

Another thing, I wish 590 and 1050 would stop making Kessel’s goaless drought for an hour.
Listening to Macauthur on 1050 this morning. OMFG, more Kessel talk, about trading him, hasn’t scored…..who cares.
He’s going to score, this is not a national emergency.

Hey, I guess with all this snow that we’re suppose to get tonight and tomorrow, is the army going to be called in again?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
