Some more George Harrison Beatles love tonight. No Millar tonight, so maybe Cito is learning - at least we're only seeing him against lefties. Ruiz still can't get a runout though - I'd rather see Snider in Right, Lind in left, and Ruiz DH-ing, no? I enjoyed Tom's post today about what's the point of the rest of the season. I guess my answer is that I watch because it's baseball and I like baseball. And no matter the situation, certain players and particularly the young guys are always fun to watch. Tonight, Scott Richmond faces off against Jeremy Guthrie. Richmond has really had a tough second half but maybe he can turn in a good start against Baltimore. He has to be very frustrated at this point, but he's likely to still play a role next season because when does a team, especially the Jays, not need it's 7, 8, and 9 starters at some point during a season? That's not to say that a strong finish to the season wouldn't be very nice for him and give the Jays a little more confidence in him.
