The Jays are hoping that the ugly memory of yesterday's game blows away this afternoon as they try to take the Phillies series. Not much to say about a game like yesterday's -- in one game, Mills demonstrated both why he could be a good major league one day and why he's not quite ready for the majors yet. He's back in AAA now, with Doc ready to make his start tomorrow. Brian Tallet will look to follow up on an incredible 3-days rest start his last time out, while the ancient one pitches for the Quaker City.
At least the Jays are fielding a major-league lineup today, so that's good to see (although Mac produced almost half of the Jays' total offense yesterday). Barajas continues to sit, but Jose Bautista gets the start in left while Lyle Overbay plays first base, Scott Rolen returns to the lineup, and Adam Lind takes DH duties.
Today's title comes from the same song as yesterday's, "Walt Whitman Bridge" by Marah. It's a great song so hopefully it'll bring us more luck today than yesterday. Let's go Jays!
