Remember Brook Jacoby? The former Reds hitting coach that Dusty Baker took the fall for trying to defend his honor? Yea, well check out what he’s doing in Toronto right now
That’s right, the same Brook Jacoby that led a Reds offense full of guys that couldn’t hit water if they fell out of a boat is leading arguably the hottest offense in all of sports right now. In fairness, even I could look about as knowledgable on hitting as Ted Williams with that Blue Jays lineup right now. Hands back, squash the bug, swing hard, finish high and let the rest take care of itself. Unless you’re a Yankee’s fan or a fan of another AL East team it’s pretty hard not to like what the Jays are doing right now. I’m not gonna run out and buy a Joey Bats jersey or anything, but as a baseball fan if you can’t appreciate what’s happening up there in Toronto with the moves they’ve made and the lineup they’ve put together and the run they’re on right now then you just don’t appreciate success.
