At first glance, the Blue Jays batting order Tuesday night looked like some
bizarre concoction spurred by the bruised right hand suffered by
Edwin Encarnacion on Sunday, when he was nailed by that Daniel Bard pitch. Aaron Hernandez Patriots Jersey . Whether
Encarnacion was in the line-up or not, in the end, moving Brett Lawrie into the
lead-off slot, and Colby Rasmus into the two-slot made perfect sense. So did
dropping Kelly Johnson into the clean-up slot and Yunel Escobar to Number 5.
John Farrells juggling worked out perfectly. Lawrie went 3-for-5 and scored
three runs, while Rasmus had the first five-hit game of his career, homered,
knocked in three runs and scored four. Jose Bautista, hitting in his usual
Number 3 slot, drove in another two. Escobar and Johnson werent cut out to be
lead-off hitters. Johnson has decent power but strikes out too much. Escobar
didnt exactly have a great on-base percentage and wasnt prone to taking walks.
Lawrie and Rasmus are arguably the two most athletic players on the roster and
can both pressure other teams at the top of the order with their speed. Getting
those two on base regularly may invigorate Bautista. Though “Joey Bats” has
really picked it up since May 1st, his three-run homer Sunday against Boston at
Rogers Centre Sunday was his first extra base hit with runners in scoring
position this season. When Encarnacion returns, probably Wednesday night, there
will be no tampering with this line-up, save for dropping Johnson and Escobar
down one spot to make room for Edwin at clean-up. Why mess with a good thing?
Ricky Romero turned in another strong performance in that 9-5 win over Chicago,
walking just one over seven innings. But unless glove throwing becomes an
Olympic event, Ricky should tone down the histrionics a bit when he comes out of
games. At this writing the Jays are in sixth place in the American League, a
game and a half back of the Yankees who have won nine of 12 and are holding down
the second Wild Card spot. Baltimore may have pulled out its biggest win of the
season Tuesday night. Jim Johnson blew his first save of the season after
running off 25 in a row going back to last season. His teammates bailed him out
though, scoring two in the 10th for an 8-6 win at Fenway. The Os had dropped
seven out of eight heading into the game and appeared to
