Hi everyone - we've done quite a bit of posting over the past few days, so I'll keep this short. I did enjoy this great Jordan Bastian piece on Cito and Tenace, old friends, over on the official site.
If you haven't introduced yourself yet, read all about your fellow Banterers here and introduce yourself. Once that post moves off the main page, we'll keep a link to it along the sidebar for newcomers' reference.
As for today's game, Doc Halladay pitches for the Jays against Brandon McCarthy. McCarthy and the other Rangers' starters for this series are profiled in this great piece by Jesse. The Jays go back to their opening day lineup for this one and it is always a treat to have Halladay on the mound.
Time to go cook some dinner (mmm, Spicy Soba Noodles) but will be back for gametime. Today's post from "Waltz Across Texas Tonight" off Emmylou Harris' record Wrecking Ball, a very fine record done in collaboration with Daniel Lanois, a songwriter, musican, and record producer who has roots in both Quebec and Ontario. Let's go Jays!
