Happy Independence Day to all you Yanks out there.
The Jays look to get on track after dropping the first game of this four game series this afternoon. The offense has really been sputtering, with another rough day yesterday in which Vernon Wells provided 6 of 13 of the Jays' total bases from his new home in the 6th hole.
Roy Halladay pitches for the Jays and hopes to get better run support than last time, while Chien-Ming Wang pitches for the Yankees. Wang still has a 2-digit ERA but has looked better recently.
Also, the Yankees are commemorating the 70th anniversary of Lou Gerhig's famous speech today. The Iron Horse is by far the greatest Yankee to come from the Big Apple, so I'm always a little surprised he's not better regarded by Yankee fans.
Anyway, let's go Jays, and thanks to the great band X for today's title.
