I know a lot of us here are feeling a little hungover after last nights 5 hour marathon of a baseball game. For that I have just the cure. MORE BASEBALL! Suit up and strap in we're going for a ride.
Bit of business first, Mike McCoy was options to the minors and Scott Richmond was recalled in order to have an extra reliever for today's game. To go along with that according to Gregor Chisholm the available relievers for todays game are Richmond, Purcey, Rausch and Frasor.
Presonnally I am still seething after last nights loss. Mad at every aspect of the game from our starting pitching, umping and most definately our hitting after the 4th inning. We could just not cash a run, it was nuts.
Today we have Jo Jo Reyes taking the mound in his second start, We all know the first one didn't exactly go as planned and he likely has one more after this before Morrow is set to come back but time is running out. Luckily it isn't like he is going up against an ace or anything... oh wait. Crap.
|2011 - Jo-Jo Reyes||0-0||1||1||0||0||0||0||3.1||9||5||5||0||1||3||13.50||3.00|
|2011 - Jered Weaver||2-0||2||2||0||0||0||0||13.0||5||1||1||1||5||12||0.69||.77|

#BlueJays lineup vs Angels: Davis CF, Escobar SS, Bautista RF, Lind 1B, Hill 2B, Rivera DH, Snider LF, Nix 3B, Molina C.
Rivera dropped down a spot but still batting ahead of Snider. Nix is in at 3B for EE which had to be expected given yet another error on the young season. I am a defender of Edwin but come on.. he is clearly becoming a DH only role if he continues on this path. And lastly of course we have Molina behind the plate because heaven forbid we have Arencibia working with the less experienced guys.
