After a tough, 4-6 road trip that could've been better, and a series win against Oakland, the Jays return home for a quick 3-game series against the Cleveland Indians. A sweep would mean that the Jays enter the break with a winning record, any other result means they would have a losing record.

Reed Johnson returns to the lineup today, and, as Torgen notes in the diaries, is batting second while Vernon Wells retains the leadoff spot, out of which he hit well out West.

Unfortunately, I won't be around to watch the game today, as my band has a gig. I hate missing when Doc pitches!
