Well, at least the defense improved this week. Other than that it was a nearly unmitigated disaster. The offense did nothing, the bullpen exploded like we have been saying it was capable of, Bedard landed on the DL again and Jarrod Washburn is still around for some reason.

The rotation now ranks below league average for the season. The bullpen went from -10 pRAA coming into the Cleveland series to -21.2 pRAA just three games later. Feeling the epic scale of meltdown this sweep was yet? As a team, we went from 22.4 runs below average in summation to 46.3 runs below average. IN THREE GAMES!

GAMES

Game 1: Felix Hernandez vs. Ricky Romero*
Game 2: Jarrod Washburn* vs. Marc Rzepczynski*
Game 3: Ryan Rowland-Smith* vs. Roy Halladay

Come. On. Jack, make a trade. Make a traaaaaaaade. Make a trade.

The Blue Jays apparently turned down an offer of J.A. Happ, Carlos Carrasco, Michael Taylor and Jason Donald for Halladay, which if true, is nutso. Fall down insane.

Romero is a groundballing lefty who misses a lot of bats and a lot of strike zones. Hungary is a groundballing lefty who misses slightly fewer bats and also a lot of strike zones. Doc Halladay is a groundballing righty who misses tons of bats, never misses the strike zone and always delivers your morning paper on time and right on your front porch too.
