Time to get back on the horse, and by horse I mean field, and by field I mean.... oh wait.
This is a good opportunity for the Jays to pull their record back up. We are taking on a team that has struggled a bit so far this season and many of their hitters simply aren't clicking so far. After a disappointing end to the New York series I am hoping the Jays can take at least 3 here to take the series win and get back over 500 again.
One of the more interesting things about todays game? J.P Arencibia is going to be behind the plate to catch Brandon Morrow for the first time this year. This is also the first time since the beginning of last year that someone other then Jose Molina is going to be behind the plate for a Morrow start. I know a lot of us were hoping that J.P would get a start with Morrow so this is our chance. Let's hope things go smoothly because I could easily see the team running back to the comfortable matchup of Molina and Morrow.
