Every once in awhile me a 3 other mates from work will go out for lunch instead of eating the companies cafeteria. The last time we went out we got into a very heated discussion about tipping etiquette. One of my co-workers started reciting almost word for word Mr.Pinks explanation for not tipping in the scene from Reservoir Dogs. Of course one of my other coworkers used to be a former waiter and as such had some pretty opinionated words to say. This went back and forth for quite some time while I finished my sandwich at which point me and the one other guy at the table got up, paid our bills and left. We waited outside to see when they would notice. 10 Minutes later we gave up and went back to work. They got back to work about 15 minutes after I did and apparently they were asked to leave the Restaurant because they were being loud. At which point both of them loudly told the waiter that he just lost his tip. Go Figure.

After losing in extras to the Royals to end the homestand the Jays role into Tampa to take on the powerhouse Rays. They are off to the hot start and are gonna be hard to beat. Tonight we have Cecil in his first start of the season after being called up to replace the injured Tallet. Taking on Matt Garza. Garza so far this year? Yeah he has been lights out so we may be in for a long night.

2010 - Matt Garza 3-0 3 3 0 0 0 0 24.0 14 3 2 1 7 19 0.75 .88

Tampa Bay really got the better of that Delmon Young trade. Anyways so far this year pitchers have used the Jays to rebound and bounceback from 1 or more poor starts. Let's hope that the opposite holds true if we are facing a pitcher who is on fire. Maybe we score 10 in the first 3 innings? It could happen! Oie.. I need another drink.

Tune in after the jump for Series info - I will probably be out of the house around 6PM so if someone could post the lineups that would be great. I should be back afterwards though. So see everyone then.
