After a poor weekend performance in the Athens of America, the Jays travel to Dallas/Ft. Worth (ok, just Fort Worth(anyone?)) to play 4 in 3 against the Rangers. Tonight's game will feature two young lefties who have had somewhat similar seasons as Brett Cecil takes on Derek Holland. We'll just pretend we don't know about tonight's lineup.

Tonight's title comes from the Silver Jews song "Dallas," a creepy but great song. Cleaning out the Jays' wounds before they get even more infected would be nice, and we definitely need divine intervention to turn this season around.
