We have Shawn Marcum (8-6, 3.42), he pitched 7 shutout innings in his last start and we could use that again tonight. Chicago has Gavin Floyd (15-6, 3.72), he was hit pretty hard in his last start 7 innings and 5 earned against the Angels.Cito is still talking about starting AJ, Doc and Litsch on short rest this weekend againt the Red Sox, I guess if we win tonight he might try it. After not making an error for so long the Jays have made 3 errors in a game in 2 of the last 3 games. Making up for lost time. And Rios has an 11 game hitting streak going. Would have been good if he could have got one in the 9th inning last night, but he is hitting with power again. Makes me feel better about next year.

I am glad we are facing a right hander tonight, we'll be spared watching Bautista play first, that should come with a PG13 rating. I have a parent teacher meeting but should be back by the 3rd inning, so join me in the game thread. Go Jays.

Poll

Should AJ, Doc and Litsch pitch on short rest this weekend against Boston?
