Toronto, Part Two. Or: Let’s not do that again sometime.

Trapped at the ballpark today, surrounded by 18,000 Jays fans and not being able to change the channel…

Instead, I am going to post a link to a video from yesterday – the first time in his 23 year career that Omar has played first base.


“We talked about it in Spring Training. [Guillen] said I might have to play some first base this year, and I was like ‘Come on, you’ve got too many guys out there that can play first,'” Vizquel said. “I never thought I was actually going to have a chance.”

Timing is everything. Or: Just making a little bit of history.

First shot, solo homer!

Way to go, Brent Lillibridge!

First one of the season, and what a great one it was. 10,000th in ChiSox franchise history and putting the boys on the board.

I’m not going to count my chickens just yet, but a milestone like that deserves a little bit of celebration, regardless of how the rest of this goes.
