Good pitching will beat good hitting any time, and vice versa: GameThread Jays @ A's

Loading Scores

I'd really like to see a win again. I can barely remember what winning was like. I'm pretty sure it was a good thing.

It is pretty tough with Bautista, Arencibia and Lind injured. Personally I think it is time to put Moises Sierra and Anthony Gose in every day and see what they can do, but, of course, Moises isn't in the lineup. We could use a spark of some sort, maybe Sierra could provide it.

You know the rules. Just, you know, don't be irritating. Listen to the mods, don't argue with them. None of those picture things or moving picture (when you write about baseball too much you type pitcher for picture) things before the game is over.

Go Jays Go.
