Blue Jays bats need to WAKE UP

The Blue Jays hitting this past week has been so horrendous it is beyond comprehension. We could have won every game during this demoralizing 7 game losing skid had we had even a glimmer of clutch hitting.

How many times must we rely on the likes of Aaron Hill and Adam Lind to come through with huge hits? Lind has run into his first rough patch, going 3 for his last 30, with no RBI in his last 8 games. It's impossible to put blame on him, because he's scorched the ball all season. Hey Vernon Wells, Alex Rios, Lyle Overbay, how about picking the team up? This is ridiculous.

In the last 7 contests, Toronto's problem hasn't been putting runners on base, but it's the ice cold hitting when there are runners in scoring position. In that span, the club has combined to hit .138 (8-for-58) with ducks on the pond, including a 1 for 9 mark Tuesday in the opener against Baltimore.

If the Jays are to get back to their winning ways and compete in the A.L. East, they need to wake the hell up, now!
