After a disappointing loss yesterday in which the Jays failed to hold an early lead and AJ Burnett alternately dominated and frustrated, our courageous Cyanocitta cristatae take on the Seattle Mariners, a team that has outperformed expectations despite lousy pitching. The Mariners are an interesting offense as they have, with a few exceptions, largely built the offense around contact hitters rather than on-base types. Ichiro, Betancourt, Lopez, Johjima, Beltre, Guillen, and Vidro all fit that profile to somewhat varying degrees.

On the mound for the Jays will be Dustin McGowan, hoping to follow up his amazing 1-hit shutout last time out. Let's go Jays!
