In the 7th inning of Saturday’s 7-2 loss to the White Sox, Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman argued with his manager on the mound after being taken out of the game. He then continued to argue with the pitching coach in the dugout.
Stroman was down 3-0 with runners on the corners and one out at the time he was lifted for a reliever. Not exactly cruising along.

Both Stroman and manager Charlie Montoyo downplayed the incident after the game, but you don’t see these things happen with winning teams. These are the types of things usually that take place on really bad teams.
That’s exactly the type of team the Toronto Blue Jays are.
"I want to be the guy with the ball, always."

If you want the ball then execute. Don’t get down by three runs and don’t get into trouble late in the game. It seems pretty simple.
