It's definitely been a departure (thanks to the Long Winters for the title) to see the Jays hitting home runs over the last week or so. The Jays, now 3 games over .500, also depart the Athens of America for home after today's afternoon game, which features a great pitching matchup. The Jays are 4-1 on this mini road trip with one game left to play, which is really quite good. It will be even better if they can finish strong.

Marcum v. Beckett - the Jays look to take the 2-game series against the Bo-Sox. Adam Lind continues at DH while Brad Wilkerson mans left. Wilk had a very nice catch yesterday. I'll be around for at least a good portion of the game today. Let's go Jays!
