It's that simple.
So how did everyone enjoy last night? Morrow came out firing and looked strong. Yes it was up against a weak lineup with the KC Royals but I like to think it was just step one in nice season. It was fun to score some runs after the poor Angels series and it was REALLY nice to see Lyle step up after his teammates show of support. He hit the ball hard and had a couple of hits to show for his efforts.
Tonight we get the early surprise of the season Dana Eveland taking on Kyle Davies. Eveland has had two very strong games on the mound and looks to continue that strong play.
Other keys to the game? The offense (Shocker I know but apparently this is some sort of a run scoring competition), so it would be nice to see Lyle continue to hit and make it more into a 3-4-5 instead of a 3-4-out. Looks like Snider has been moved back to the 8th spot. Nice reward after his 2 hit including Home run outing last time out (he also hit the ball hard a couple of times without anything to show for it). Don't understand why he deserves to hit ahead of Molina and McCoy but not Buck and McCoy.

Keep it Civil and Go Jays Go
Today's title is a quote from the movie "Fantastic Mr.Fox" If you haven't seen it. Go rent it or buy it. I laughed pretty much the entire way through and both Clooney and Murray were fantastic in their voice acting.
