ANAHEIM - Just when you think the Blue Jays can’t possibly look any more unprofessional, they find a way.

Each successive game is an opportunity for discovery as the Jays explore the outer limits of buffoonery on the baseball field.

We take you now to the fifth inning of Saturday night’s edition of ‘Are You Smarter Than A Fifth-Grader?’

Angels rookie Kole Calhoun, summoned to the big leagues six games ago and playing like a 10-year veteran, has just launched his second home run in two nights to extend the Los Angeles lead to 4-1.

With nobody out, Mike Trout is hit by an Esmil Rogers pitch. Josh Hamilton singles to put runners at first and second for Howie Kendrick. Kendrick singles to centre. There is no chance to get the fleet Trout at home but Colby Rasmus flings it in that general direction anyway, in violation of all the natural laws of baseball.
