Well, the season is, for all intents and purposes over, but there's still something left to play for, especially this week. The Jays are looking to finish ahead of the Yankees for the first time since 1993, and they will need to take this series if they want to do so. Right now, the Yankees are 2 games ahead of the Jays.

Jesse Litsch pitches against Mike Mussina tonight and it'd be nice to show some offense. Let's face it, I know it's out of context, but if we can't beat the Yankees this season, it's tough to see how we will do next year when they will likely be much better and we will likely be mostly the same.

Tonight's title comes from a track off Spoon's record Ga Ga Ga Ga, which is way better than it sounds.
