Matt Joyce Will Never Be Late to a Game Again

Matt Joyce’s putrid 2015 season (.139/.183/.213; -1.4 WAR!) culminated Monday when the veteran outfielder was late arriving to the Rogers Centre for a rare day game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Though it was a simple mistake (as the first game of a four-game series usually starts in the evening), Angels manager Mike Scioscia scratched Joyce in favor of Collin Cowgill.
Joyce acknowledged the error immediately (via Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times):

“I assumed we had a night game because we had a day game [in Baltimore] on Sunday. Normally, we have night games on Monday. By the time I realized it was a day game, it was a little late, and [Manager Mike] Scioscia made the lineup decision and put Collin Cowgill in left field.”

It appears Joyce has learned his lesson, because he unveiled his new, thorough six-alarm system that every OCD college kid who doesn’t want to be late for finals knows very well:


Not sure if Joyce needs the dog alarm for away games, but I guess he might as well keep it on.
