Except to say that Shaun Marcum went 5-0 in May with each of the five wins coming after the Jays had lost. I’ll grant you, pitchers have no control over their win-loss record, so dig these peripherals: A WHIP of 1.026, an ERA of 1.85, a strikeout to walk ratio of 3.2:1. That’s one solid month and again – each of the wins came after a Blue Jays’ loss. He had one no-decision in there – and the Jays won that game, too.
Also, congrats to Vernon Wells for moving into second place on the Jays’ all-time homer list. He broke out of a tie with Joe Carter with number 204, a sixth-inning solo shot, and trails only Carlos Delgado. By 132.
Here’s this evening’s edition of The JaysTalk, for your listening pleasure:
Tomorrow, it’ll be Brett Cecil – having been re-spectacle-fied – taking on Chris Tillman in a battle of fantastic young pitching prospects. We’ll have the pre-game show at 12:30 PM Eastern and Jose Bautista has already confirmed that he’ll do the pre-game interview with me. I might bump him to Sunday, though, and talk to Marcum tomorrow.
