Hi everyone. The Jays look to take the series today against CC Sabathia and the Yankees. Aaron Hill is evidently feeling well enough to hit, but Cito is giving him a day off of his keystone duties, and John MacDonald gets his first start of the season at second base.
Brian Tallet pitches for the Jays and looks to follow up a great showing in his last start. Derek Jeter and Hideki Matsui return to the lineup. The Jays are still smarting from a rough start yesterday from Scott Richmond and an inabilty to score runs off Andy Pettitte, so a good start from Tallet would be very welcome. With Hill DH-ing, Adam Lind gets the day off against the lefty and Jose Bautista plays left field and hits fifth.
Let's go Jays!! Today's post, in honour of the finally-open Rogers Centre dome, is from a song by the great Alaskan band The Long Winters
