Of course, the Toronto Blue Jays decided to sit their best hitter at the moment Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and ended up losing Sunday’s contest in Toronto 1-0. Because Toronto is a bad organization – perhaps they don’t realize that he could have made all the difference in a one run game. Like; you know, the day before.
The take home message here is not that Guerrero hit into a double play that effectively ended the game. However, what it does infer is that Guerrero; took a closer like Chapman who was throwing over 100 MPH the equivalent of 18 rounds.
He got into an 0-2 hole, almost homered, displayed some good takes, battled back; and took everything but the kitchen sink. This is probably the best at-bat of Guerrero’s career thus far. It’s one to remember.
Finally, I don’t understand why Charlie Montoyo and the Blue Jays organization are sitting Guerrero Jr. so much at this point. They’re costing him stats and a possible Rookie of the Year Award. The guy could at least serve as the DH if he needs a breather. This is just a pro organization doing things the wrong way, and showing why they are not successful.
