Great Moments in Horrendous Decisions: Colby Rasmus’ Cornrows

Between Colby Rasmus’ new ‘do, back-to-back losses — in which the Blue Jays were outscored 14-6 — to the Orioles, Jose Bautista again landing on the disabled list, and Kevin frigging Gregg striking out the side — Rasmus, Edwin Encarnacion, and Kelly Johnson — in the 9th inning Saturday night, I’ve hit bottom as a Toronto supporter. There’s only so much bullshit one man can take.

But, seriously, what the hell was Rasmus thinking? I know he’s struggling, but there had to have been another option. Other options. Somewhere, Tony La Russa — like the rest of us — is laughing.

What can I say. I preferred the long hair; the sick flow. I preferred Colbylocks.

    The last time the Blue Jays won a game with Colby playing was July 28th. Cornrows actually seems a bit tame.

      The Last time the Blue Jays saw the postseason, Colby Rasmus was in the second grade. If his teacher had held him back, the Blue Jays probably would be better.

    Does anyone know the record for most consecutive losses a player has appeared in? The cleveland spiders in 1899 lost 24 in a row, Colby has lost 20 in a row.

      I hope this distinction belongs to some mop up reliever who only came in to pitch after the team was already in a blow out loss all year.

        Using Baseball-Reference.com’s streak finder, I found that Matt Reynolds of the Rockies appeared in 30 consecutive regular season losses from June 2 to August 5 this year.

        The longest streak in the database (1918 onward) for pitchers is 43 set by Thornton Kipper. He achieved this from July 28, 1953 to July 17, 1955. That was the last game of his career.

        I couldn’t find the same stat for hitters to search on.
