And just one more thing: Blue Jays
Lisa chimes in with her Blue Jays preview. I probably would have just written Travis Snider’s 1000 times. But that’s why Lisa is Lisa. She found plenty to talk about and then had enough left in her to come up with this:
reliever Seth Overbey. And not just because he and my tax dollars went to the
University of Maryland.
face it, his ilk in the Minors rarely gets any respect. But with
his fastball-sinker-slider repertoire he managed to earn the Jays’ Minor League
Pitcher of the Month award for April, thanks to 12 2/3 scoreless innings at
Class A Lansing. In fact, he did not give up a run in 16 games out of the
Lugnuts pen. walking four and striking out 21 while limiting Midwest League
hitters to a .146 average before moving up to Advanced A Dunedin. There his ERA
was only slightly more blemished, posting an 0.90 ERA in 10 games. He finished
the year at Double-A New Hampshire with a 4.26 ERA in 30 games and is likely to
start the year back in the Fisher Cats’ pen.
sometimes you just gotta go with that sleeper. So I’m going with Overbey.
