Vlad Jr. With a Serious Battle Against Aroldis Chapman

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.

13-pitch BATTLE. Advantage: Chapman.

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.
