This scene ruined a season of TOR’, the value of blog posts fell again


 Criticism is pouring in on main hitter Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for the Toronto Blue Jays’ early elimination from the postseason.

Toronto was defeated 0-2 in Game 2 of the American League (AL) Wild Card Series (WCS) held at Target Field on the 5th (Korean time) and was eliminated with two losses in the series. Fans’ anger is growing as they lost two games in the WCS for the second year in a row and were ‘blown away’.

It is pointed out that the decisive cause of the defeat on this day was the ‘accidental death’ of Guerrero, who is considered the best hitter on the team.

Top of the 5th inning when Toronto was down 0-2. With 2 outs and 1st on base, Guerrero received a walk on a full count from opposing starter Sonny Gray. Then, when Gray’s 87 mph sweeper on the first pitch thrown by right-handed hitter Bo Bichett at bat became a wild pitch that bounced and went backwards, second base runner George Springer and first base runner Guerrero advanced one base each to become second and third base. A single hit could tie the score at 2-2.

Bichette and Gray engaged in a full-count battle up to 6 pitches.

The moment when the eyes of the other team’s dugout, Minnesota fielders, and the 38,518 fans filling the stands were all focused on Gray’s 7th pitch. Gray, who was in a set position, suddenly relaxed his feet and turned to second base to throw a check.

Gray, who pitched five scoreless innings and earned his first postseason win, said of the pickoff situation, “After the first inning, Correa said, ‘Listen to me. (The crowd is noisy) The runners over there won’t be able to hear the third base coach.’ “It meant that there would be a situation where we could make a pickoff,” he said. “As expected, the situation came. And we were able to do it as planned. At the full count, I said, ‘This is it. Throw to second base.’ “I could hear it,” he explained.

On this day, Toronto gave all its efforts, including removing starter Jose Berrios after three innings and bringing in Yusei Kikuchi, but the batters fell silent again. said, ‘Such absurd situations have happened a lot in the Blue Jays this season. They had high-profile players, talented players, and countless opportunities, but
