A.J. Burnett v. Nick Blackburn tonight at the RC, and thanks to Bright Eyes for tonight's game thread title. Travis Snider is back in the lineup, batting ninth, Scoot mans shortstop and Inglett is back at second in the Jays "offense-first" lineup. I'm headed out for a run on what is another beautiful evening but will be back for the game (though I will be cooking some spicy soba noodles for the first inning or so). Let's go Jays!
By the way, there's now a link on the right sidebar that takes you to the voting for the Ford Frick award, where you can (and should, in my humble opinion) vote for Tom Cheek every 24 hours. No one deserves this honour more than Tom, so let's make sure he gets it!
