There is no place like home - May 18th 2011 - Rays @ Jays - Gamethread

New, 578 comments

Be it ever so humble there is no place like (the) Dome. Side note to the rest of the league get a roof! I know playing a dome sucks but pull a Seattle and get a roof that can open and close but still be an open concept stadium. Best of both worlds!

With the rainout yesterday the Jays have decided to NOT skip anyone in their rotation and everyone is going to get one extra days rest. That means Jesse Litsch gets pushed back to tonight and he will take on Jeremy Hellickson. Against the Rays Jesse currently holds a 1-3 record in 6 starts with a 3.89 ERA and a 1.385 WHIP. Hellickson has only faced the Jays once and took a no decision from a 7IP 3ER performance.
