Shaun Marcum (1-2,5.12ERA) vs. Daniel Cabrera (5-8, 5.40ERA). 4:35 PM ET start.
Another early game thread today, sorry for any inconvenience.
In the middle of the three game series, the Jays will sent Shaun Marcum to the mound to face off against the wild Daniel Cabrera. After his fantastic first start against the Jays a couple weeks ago, he got rocked by the Red Sox in his last start, so asking me to predict what kind of start he is going to have is like asking to me to predict the lottery numbers. We will have to wait and see.
Aside from the 1 1/3 innings by Scott Downs last night, the Jays played a pretty solid game (pitching wise). I was especially impressed with rookie pitcher Davis Romero, who in his major league debut, threw like a wily veteran. He threw 2 2/3 shutout innings, giving up only 1 hit while striking out 2. His fastball might not light up the radar gun, but Jason Phillips said it looked more fast than it is. In addition, his curveball looked really sharp. Davis "The Other" Romero should have a future with this club. He surely raised a few eyebrows with last nights' performance.
