After their usual Jekyll and Hyde performance through the first two games, the Jays look to take another series from the Dodgers and inch closer to .500 when two bright young starters, Shaun Marcum and Chad Billingsley, face off against each other at the Rogers Centre. Both Marcum and Billingsley have significantly improved their performances from last season, although Billingsley has done it in the bullpen and is only making his first start today.

After missing yesterday's offensive outburst, I'm pretty excited for tonight's game.

In other news, Jesse Litsch was promoted to AAA to take Ty Taubenheim's spot in the rotation. Taubenheim was brought up to take AJ Burnett's Saturday start against the Colorado Rockies. Word on Burnett is still quiet.
