I’m taking one post off from blogging about baseball — today I’m still in shock from after what happened last night in East Lansing, Mich. Well I’m not in shock, considering Michigan State has let me down multiple times over the years, but that was a horrible defeat to Notre Dame. For those of you who haven’t read my profile, I went to Michigan State.

Anyway, I don’t have much to say today. On the Blue Jays front, it looks like Dustin McGowan will be starting on Tuesday in Detroit. Jays manager John Gibbons also said the pitcher might take part in the Arizona Fall League. It’s still up in the air what role he might fill next season — starter or reliever. If he doesn’t make the club out of Spring Training, he’d have to clear waivers to go to Triple-A. I personally think another club wouldn’t mind picking him up. That being said, the Jays need to determine how he best fits in with the team.



    Jays have to figure where to put McGowan. They didn’t NOT trade him or groom him as their best pitching prospect all these years just to lose him to waivers for nothing. Either #5 or relief, he could be a cheap alternative to plug a hole in the pitching.


    I think it’s fair to say that he lost his title as top prospect after the Tommy John surgery. He’s still plenty talented and can hopefully get a spot in the bullpen next year. A middle relief righty could be a good place to start.
