You Can't Break My Government Heart: Quick Jays' Update

Flying back to D.C. today so I'll make this quick.

  • John Buck caught a pain free bullpen session.  Buck is eligible to come off the disabled list in 9 days. 
  • Yunel Escobar, who missed yesterday's game with a sore knee he hurt while sliding, is day-to-day and could be back in the lineup as soon as today, though that's by no means certain.
  • Vernon Wells' x-ray revealed no fracture or ligament damage and he is day-to-day as well.  Wells is hopeful he can return tonight and has said he can already run "faster than Jose Molina."
  • Brett Cecil, who was set to start Thursday, has been moved back to Saturday.  Cecil cut his knee climbing stairs at Skydome.  It required three stitches but is not serious.  Brad Mills will start tomorrow and then be optioned to AAA, with Marc Rzepczynski coming up to make Friday's start and Cecil going on Saturday in Anaheim.      
  • Cito musing a 2011 return to the manager's box? 
  • Today's title from the great song "My Government Heart" by Vancouver's own Said the Whale.  Flight's boarding.  Cheers!
