Well yesterday was certainly exciting. The downside being of course is that the pen is pretty gassed at the moment. If there was ever a day for our Ace to step up and do his role it is today. We need Ricky to do his thing today and go 7 or 8 innings to let the bullpen have a rest.

A win today will give us the win in the series and put us a game over 500 going into the next series against Cleveland. It really has been a bit of a rollarcoaster so far this year, but on the plus side we haven't seen any sustained losing streaks like we have in seasons past.

John Danks goes today for the White Sox and he simply he is not the same pitcher that we have seen the past few years. Although you have to figure to be 0-7 at this point obviously entails some bad luck as well. He is a lefty and we have had trouble against Lefties the past couple of years. But I hopefuly for a win today.

Predictions - Jays win 5-2 Jose Bautista hits number 21

Magic Eight Ball predictions - Outlook not so good
