Love and Marriage with Stieb's Sort of Perfect Game Monday Sept 2, 2013 Links

Tom Szczerbowski

Hola. I'm finally enjoying a labour free Labour (take that US spelling) Day and have time to write a links post. Too bad it includes recaps of yesterday's ugly game. To be blunt the series was ugly for both teams, but less ugly for the Jays who won 2 of 3. Today's game is against the D-Backs at 4pm.
