I Hate Interleague Play
The title say is it all: "I HATE INTERLEAGUE PLAY". It's not just that the Jays suck at it. It's not just that the last many seasons have had their "ok back to reality- we suck" moment during interleague play, it is just so meaningless to do it. Other than the Sox-Cubs, Mets-Yankees, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim-Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angels, Rangers-Astros (slight stretch), Rays-Marlins (big stretch) there is no reason for doing it. Part of the allure of that thing we do every October, the World Series, is that there has been no contact. It is like the perfectly orchestrated pro-wrestling feud; you are salivating for that mathcup, the protagonist and antagonist have been close to coming to blows, but you have never seen them face off until the big event. Does anybody really care about Jays-Colorado, Jays-Arizona, or what about the classic Rays-Pirates? Not me! Weren't all of us Jays fans thrilled when Roger Clemons gassed running the bases, when Scott Downs hurt his toe bunting or running or doing some other non-AL activity. I am sure there are more atrocities that I don't remember or never knew. Hate it, Hate it, Hate it. Mark my words - you will look back on another promising start to a season and say "You know it all went sour when we got swept by Colorado." - did I mention I hate it. HATE IT!!
