This Week's Shitty Blue Jay: Homer Bush
As the baseball season comes in full swing, I'm going to reminisce about some of the famous Boo Jays that went out season after season and broke my heart.
For this inaugural week, we're going with Homer Bush. Yes, that's his real name.
Played in Toronto during the 1999 to 2001 campaign. He was supposed to establish our speed game, but never did materialize. He peaked in stolen bases in 1999 with 32, but got hurt and never recovered since.
His name deceived a lot of people, because his swing wasn't built for power. A career .285 hitter, he hit 11 home runs in his 7 seasons of work. Was traded to Florida in 2002 and hasn't been heard from since.
I hope, during his major league tenure, that he put up big numbers for bush. Whoo!
Could be seen putting on exhibition races with thoroughbred horses and losing.
