Carlos Tosca jersey for sale at Rogers Centre!

With the Marlins in town this weekend, and former Blue Jays Manager Carlos Tosca now Florida's bench coach, it reminded me of the strangest merchandise item being sold at the Rogers Centre.

A Toronto Blue Jays Carlos Tosca jersey. HAHAHA! Really. Why in the world would anyone buy that? This seems made up, but it's true. There's actually a Tosca jersey to be had. Presumably for the price of one beer? Or maybe a package of Twizzlers.

What has this world come to?

Jays need to put up or shut up

What an absolutely pathetic series by the Blue Jays. That's the best they can do? Disgusting. Vile. Rank That was the worst gong show sad sack despicable series of the season so far. One that might have just screwed us out of a shot at doing anything this year. It's time for the Blue Jays to suck it up and win. Now.

I don't give a crap if they've historically fared brutally against the Marlins. Besides, remind me again why that's the case to begin with? You can't get swept against an inferior team like Florida. If the Jays want to be taken seriously by Major League Baseball, they can't, under no circumstance, get pasted in their own barn to the likes of those schmucks.

I also don't want to be read stories painting the Jays in a good light. Not until they get their head out of their ass. I don't want to be told that Alex Rios has picked up his play, how Vernon Wells will soon break out of his "funk" or how it's wonderful that Dustin McGowan might be two months away from returning. I want the truth. The truth is the team sucks right now.

Instead of talking a good game, how about PLAYING a good game. Is that too much to ask?
