Hi everyone. It hasn't been a fun series with Boston so far, but the Jays look to salvage one game when Roy Halladay takes the mound for the Jays. Paul Byrd pitches for Boston. Halladay is coming off a couple of rough starts in which he has given up 20 hits and 3 home runs in just 11 innings.
On the good side, Marco Scutaro is back in the lineup for Toronto, and Kevin Millar is back out of the lineup. Jose Bautista mans left field while Johnny Mac plays at the hot corner.
I promised one of my favourite ever Boston songs for today's post, and there it is, from the great song "Twilight in Boston" by Jonathan Richman, who, like the Talking Heads, who supplied yesterday's title, enjoys equal status with me and with my two-year old girl (whose first words to me this morning, no joke, were "same as it ever was.")
