After yesterday's crazy finale, the Jays host the Rockies in a game I will have to listen to on the radio thanks to MLB/Fox and their ridiculous rules. The true insanity of this is that Fox doesn't actually show any games at 1 - in fact, they show nothing until 4, by which time the Jays will be done. Unspeakable

Anyway, Vernon bats leadoff again, Zaun sits the day after a night game, and Royce Clayton is still nowhere to be found. If he's not going to play, why not bring up someone who will, since Clark can play SS anyway?

If anyone is interested, I make my case for moving Tek Janssen to the rotation below.
