One player alone doesn't drive ticket sales on a consistent basis, but Guerrero's Major League Baseball debut on April 26th was the second-highest attended Blue Jays game of the 2019 season.
He found out about his player of the week honours after the game. You don't ask someone coming off a sprint to suddenly run a marathon. He surrendered a two-run home run to the Red Sox's Jackie Bradley Jr. In his first start since May 6, Pomeranz gave up two runs on two hits and five walks with two strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings.
With 26,794 fans at the game on Victoria Day, that was the third-biggest game at the Rogers Centre. Especially after Eric Sogard was a late scratch, which left the Blue Jays minus two of the top five hitters in their order.
"It's all the coaching staff (that made the decision)". His initial progression was deliberate as a result of that. Vlad, he missed spring training, so we have to be careful. If he was disappointed he didn't appear so in his post-game remarks.
Even though I now sound like an old man ranting under a bridge, I feel like I have some good points and think we should explore them some more. So we'll talk about it in the next few days and then we'll go from there.
"We have a plan for me to be healthy", he added later, "and we're just going to continue with that". So Guerrero didn't play on Monday.
But in the absence of a more reasoned explanation, fans who spent money on tickets have reason to be angry at a front office seemingly trying to ensconce one of the team's few attractions in bubble wrap. "(Justin) Smoak already had a day off, (Randall) Grichuk is going to have a day off".

Boston, on the other hand, had little trouble knocking around Jays starter Edwin Jackson (0-1).
"That's when things get really fun", said Chavis. Although the rotation is back down to average, a lot of the credit for the Red Sox getting over 500 has been the bats. "But it just kind of gets easier to get the contact, if that makes sense".
That won't matter much to the thousands of Jays fans who arrived at the stadium on a holiday afternoon to watch Guerrero, only to find that all he could claim on the day was to have a better seat than the majority of them.
After going homerless in his first 13 outings, Guerrero not only smacked four homers in six games, he hit.333 with nine RBIs to be named the American League player of the week. Montoyo confirmed Aaron Sanchez (3-4) will start for Toronto on Wednesday.
I will probably be buried with my signed Blue Jays jersey and my Lourdes Gurriel Jr. bobblehead.
Brian Johnson also might be an option.
By no means are they all-stars, but they offer innings to a team constantly scrambling for pitching.
"He could pinch-hit or stuff", Montoyo said. So too is improvising on the fly.
