I can’t believe I missed this, but Drew reminded me with this tweet that earlier in the week, Casey Janssen referred to Alex Anthopoulos as the “Silent Assassin”.
Going into Spring Training, it appeared as though Casey Janssen had the leg up on Sergio Santos for the Blue Jays closer role.
As far as most were concerned, the job was Janssen’s to lose. Now the tables have turned and it’s essentially Santos’ job to win.
More on the closer situation over at BJH.
The night after a 3-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians, there are some burning questions in Blue Jays Land.
Who is the real Josh Johnson? Should the Blue Jays move Brett Lawrie to second base? Is the time now to cash in on Casey Janssen? And where do babies come from?
I didn’t know Casey Janssen could fly, either. For a second there, I thought he was Brett Lawrie.
For some reason, I feel like Casey Janssen played with Stretch Armstrong when he was a kid … because he bends like one.

Casey Janssen looks like he’s going to cry. I don’t blame him.
And for his next trick ladies and gentlemen, the great Casey Janssen will catch a foul ball in his cap!
