Jose Berrios is a Jay and oh my lord what a solid outing he had.
As I’m writing this, I currently have the Jays game going on the Xbox, the Fishercats game on my gaming laptop, the Dunedin Blue Jays game on my monitor and the Buffalo Bisons game on my school laptop.
Things worth mentioning:
Obviously, I’m starting with the trade deadline acquisition, Jose Berrios.
I won’t lie, I thought I would have to be writing about how you should not judge a trade based on one performance. Berrios obviously changed that right quick as he finished with a line of 6 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 7 K 1 BB, 3 HBP; however, four of those hits came in the first two innings. After that, Berrios got into a groove and dominated the Royals with his curveball.
He ran into some issues in the top of the 6th as he allowed a double and plunked two runners. There is no quicker way to my heart than hitting batters, just ask Alek Manoah. Berrios got out of it by throwing five straight curveballs. You could just feel that he’d retire him and get a nice standing ovation.
