This is What ‘rock-bottom’ Looks Like for Blue Jays
Russell Martin isn’t taking stock of everything going wrong, nor of his manager calling the place in which the Blue Jays find themselves as “rock-bottom.”
It isn’t how Martin chooses to view the current and troubling state of the Blue Jays — or the state of any team he has played with in the past. Instead, he’s the ultimate pragmatist.
“If the season ended today, you know what? We’re in the post-season,” said Martin. “That’s what matters to me. That’s what I think about.
“I don’t really care about what anybody thinks or what anybody says about what’s going on. I know what people are feeling. It’s one game at a time from here to the end. There’s no time to feel sorry for yourself or whatever.
“I still believe in the talent we have on the team. I’m not worried about (all these) losses. It sucks that we lost today. It’s never fun. It’s always about tomorrow being better.”
