Not sure if Glaus is banged up, but even though he hasn't been hitting well (although he has come around a bit lately), I will have to wane Gibbons for resting Troy against a lefty unless he is hurting.  Other than that, the Jays attempt to gain at least a small amount of credibility for their road game, the subject of an angry diatribe/analysis in the Hardball Times last week by the inestimable John Brattain.

By the way, sorry for the lack of non-game thread content. I'm extremely busy at the moment, with Mrs. Hugo going back to work and us entrusting the care of our precious genetic material to a stranger, myself going back to work after our vacation, and my trying to help my cousin and his band with some contractual law issues (intellectual property and entertainment law not being my forte).  Let's go Jays!
