Roche: Blue Jays Are A Joke For ‘Retaliation’ On Kevin Youkilis
" BOSTON (CBS) — The Blue Jays should probably feel lucky that the Red Sox had to leave town following the Jays’ win on Sunday.

Major League Baseball should step in to reprimand or fine the Toronto Blue Jays. It’s ridiculous.

Daniel Bard is a mess right now. The kid with the golden arm can’t throw a strike. In just 1 2/3 innings Sunday, Bard gave up just one hit. However, he allowed five runs because he walked six — that’s right — six! Bard also hit two Blue Jay batters. So, in getting just 5 outs, Bard issued eight free passes along the way.

The Blue Jays beat Bard and the Sox 5-1. Good for them. They took advantage of Bard’s wildness thanks to Jose Bautista’s three-run homer and some good pitching.

However, what the Jays also did in this one was ridiculous.
