Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie left yesterday’s game with a sprained ankle. And he’s out of the lineup for today’s Jays-Braves game as a result.  In his place will be the Braves’ old friend Mark DeRosa.

No word on how Lawrie’s sister feels about it all.

    What is with 2B and Beaver Infielders, eh? Same sort of thing Reyes did to his ankle over there. Lawrie’s doesn’t look as bad since he was still running on it for 90 feet (27.4m for all you sane people) only to be shown to the trainer once he pulled up lame at 3B. Its quite clear he’s stretched things that shouldn’t have been stretched. Pity about that. He was getting warm with the Canadian Maple, too. Perhaps this ankle injury will give him a chance to work on staying over his feet while swinging? He lunges over the plate as he swings and has the HUGEST hole in his swing because of it.

    Speaking of Jose Reyes, guess who took BP yesterday? That’s right, the best SS in MLB. (Siddown UYF. It was not Jeter). He’s ahead of schedule to return and this Beaver Fan could not be happier to see his grinning face trotting around there. My Boys have quite a nice problem once JR comes back: what to do with ‘Saki-San.

    Beaver Game on at 10AM MST. The Bravos in town to kick it, Maple Style, for one more game then its off the Atlanta to try it . . . try it . . . what? Deep Fat Fryer Style? Guess so, given how tubby some of the people are there South of the Border.

    As we say in Fantasy League: Breeng eet, beeches.

      Mountie Standard Time?

      Trust me, as a Mets fan, I have a ton of love in my heart for Reyes, but when you say that he is the best SS in the game, does that mean that Troy Tulowitzki just announced his retirement? Because by any measure, he is the best in the business on both defense and offense and it doesn’t seem particularly close.

        You are clearly not using Metric measurements. That Imperial stuff’s got no talent. Only getting by on its grit. Metric as tWtW.

      What do we do with ‘Saki-san? We slide him over to 2nd base and give Boneface a little break to work on his BP.

      I’d love to see Kawasaki at 2B while Bonifacio gets acquainted with the bench, where he proceeds to spend the rest of the season.

        You and nbjays probably have it exactly right.

        Gibbons, here’s how you do i:

        “BoneFace Meet Pine. Pine; BoneFace. Kiss his ass, Pine.”

      cur, you comedic genius.

      Cur, don-cha-no (assume with a Balmir accent; it’s hard to nail that Hon-esque dialect in text) the best SS in the game is playing 3B in Balmir right now? And defensively? JR is still sitting behind Party Hardy and his 2012 Gold Glove.

    @BrettLawriesister said “that infield at the Rogers Center is bush league!MLB should investigate this We are outraged! “

    Love my Jays. But the admiration people show Lawrie here in Toronto is crazy. He’s a good defensive player but he hasn’t hit well since being here. He has potential but his prima donna attitude almost makes it not worth having him. If he wasn’t Canadian people here would want him gone. Still our only viable option at 3rd but he will end up tantruming himself off the team if he doesnt start hittting (at least .210)

    • lyon810 - May 28, 2013 at 11:27 AM

      Couldn’t agree more. Vastly overrated because of his nationality and where he happens to play. Not saying the talent isn’t there, but people have a distorted view of his bat based on 2 months of production almost two years ago.

      He’s a yahoo and an embarrassment to Canadian baseball.

    • 1943mrmojorisin1971 - May 28, 2013 at 11:51 AM

      I can appreciate that he plays the game hard but until he shuts his mouth and focuses only on that I’m one Canadian that isn’t a fan.

    • jaysjunkie - May 28, 2013 at 12:29 PM

      I’m finding it harder and harder to stomach Lawrie’s incredibly immature behaviour as well. I think it’s factually wrong to say he hasn’t hit well since coming here, though. Sure, he’s stunk at the plate this season, but his average over the 2011 and 2012 seasons (a total of 168 games) was .283 with an average OPS of .841. Not exactly crappy.

    Maybe his sister can fill in for him while hes out. She might actually hit better

    Move Bautista to third and put in the speedster gose for some playing time?

  7. scoutsaysweitersisabust - May 28, 2013 at 11:45 AM

    He’s lucky he isn’t sitting out a suspension for returning to the field to continue to yell at the ump after getting ejected the other day against the Orioles.
