Ryan goes down

Bad karma, bad luck, bad break? Take your pick, but they're all happening in Toronto this year.

The latest bit of bad news to hit north of the border came Thursday, when the Jays announced B.J. Ryan, a former Airline standout, would miss the rest of the season because of Tommy John surgery.

Remember, the Jays lied about Ryan's injury during spring training and it was clear something wasn't right about the All-Star closer.

While nothing good usually comes from an injury, there are slivers of hope for Ryan.

The recovery time for Tommy John patients is getting smaller and smaller. Combined with his usually light, in pitch count anyway, workload, Ryan should be back to his old self by early next season.

That's about the only good news Toronto has heard in a while.
