After a terrible series against the last-place Mariners, the Jays hope for some better luck with the first-place Cubs in an interleague series. Alex Rios, Scott Rolen, and Rod Barajas return to the lineup, but Aaron Hill is still out and Gregg Zaun isn't starting today either.
As for the pitchers, A.J. Burnett pitches for the Jays and looks to bounce back, while Sean Gallagher pitches for the Cubs. I'll be watching the little one, watching the game, and working all simultaneously, which should be quite interesting. Let's go Jays!
Today's title comes from the Hold Steady's theme album "Separation Sunday" which I've been listening to a bunch lately. There's something depressing and hilarious about that band.
