Remember when Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie went nuts on an umpire for a strike three call earlier this season? Remember how Brett slammed his helmet into the ground and it promptly hit umpire Bill Miller on the hip. Sensing a solid chance to make a buck, the Blue Jays are now trying to sell that helmet for $1,000 in their team store. Nope, not kidding. $500 less for Lawrie’s helmet than Cam Newton’s BCS pants.  Seriously, who, besides a moron, is going to pay $1,000 for a helmet involved in a minor moment in a baseball season? We’re not talking about a great moment in team history. The piece is obviously way overpriced (even in Canadian dollars). It’s either that or we got one helluva deal on Cam Newton’s game-used BCS pants from Auburn at $1,500. We’re talking a museum piece while the Blue Jays are trying to sell a broken helmet.

Mid-Season Thoughts

Traditionally I do a mid-season post, and I also have been doing periodic posts after each 1/5 (approximately) of the minor league season. Given the lack of bloggage around here (you will possibly note the absence of the 2/5 Report), I'm going to squeeze in both goals for this week.On the major league level, it seems emotionally to have been a season plagued by more upheaval than...
