Aumont having his moments
Hull's Phillippe Aumont (the experts say mechanics need smoothing out) did a really nice job of freezing Adam Loewen with a slider during the Canada-Blue Jays exhibition game in Dunedin yesterday. It's amusing, one first-round draft choice striking out a former first-rounder who's switched to the outfield.
(You-had-to-be-there omment of the day, from Sportsnet's Sam Cosentino after a Jays hitter doubled off the right-field behind Matt Stairs: "Matt might not have been quick enough to get back to the wall, and he might not be tall enough to have reached it if he got there.")
