Those rotten Yankees kick off a 14-game AL East extravaganza tonight. Roy Halladay pitches in what I can assure you will not be his last start as a Toronto Blue Jay, and that alone is reason to rejoice. Andy Pettitte pitches for the Bronx.
Marco Scutaro makes a welcome return to the lineup tonight, though Johnny Mac did a great job filling in on his off-day. Kevin Millar, on the other hand, makes a very unwelcome return to the cleanup spot, along with his .670 OPS. Jose Bautista plays left field and bats ninth.
Old friend Eric Hinske is playing and batting 9 for the Yankees. Let's go Jays! And thanks to Cute is What We Aim For for today's title.
