What a MLB debut this kid had for the Bluejays.

He went 4 for 5..Hit two homeruns, drove in three runs. Kid almost hit for the cycle. He had a single, a double, and 2 HR's. Trade in one of those HR's for a triple and I bet he'd be receiving more attention.

*Oh and the very FIRST major league pitch he hit was a homerun.

More like if he was playing on the Yankees.

It also appears that Arencibia's 11 total bases was a MLB record for a debut.

He's not lacking for attention on MLB Network.

More impressive was his 1st pitch was a HR, 2nd pitch was a double, 3rd a single, and 4th a hr... he didn't take one pitch in his first 4 AB's

First player to hit 2 HR in his debut since MARK QUINN.

That's right, former Royals legend Mark Quinn.

He's had a hell of a minor league season, hitting 30+ hrs

ROFL That puts it in perspective. The mighty Quinn was short-lived.

Jose Molina catches Brandon Morrow; for some reason he settles him down and makes him look like a budding ace. When anyone else catches Morrow he looks Nuke Laloosh pre- Kevin Costner.

Remember when mark quinn went 300 at bats without a walk, when he walked the fireworks went off ususally reserved for home runs?

I really think having Molina behind the plate made no difference as far as Morrow's pitching performance goes.

Today Morrow was simply at his best. He had excellent command the whole time, a great fastball, and threw a nasty slider. The guy was throwing strikes most of the time, heck he had thrown 135 pitches in the 9th inning, and was still throwing at 95 mph. He is really improving. His main problem this season has been command. He's had his share of troubles finding the strike zone, but thats been improving over the course of the season. He is up and coming.

He really brought his stuff today. Anbody could of caught this game behind the plate and it would of made no difference imo.

If Morrow thinks it makes a difference, then it makes a difference.

90% of the time pitchers will always praise the catchers. What else are they supposed to say or think?

I watched this game, and was even listening to post game comments from the Bluejays commentators, analysts and they were all saying he had his stuff. It was pretty much all him from the start.

Even the coaches knew he brought his game when he struck out the side in the 1st inning. Basically, everybody knew it.
