You got Numb Tongue? I can fix that! - June 4th 2011 - Jays @ Orioles - Gamethread

Nice win yesterday, A good start coupled with a solid offensive output and despite a late bleep with Frasor things rolled along fairly smoothly. With Romero going today let's hope the Jays give him similar run support and we can cruise along again.

To help out on the offensive side of things tonight we have another bat returning to our lineup. Mike McCoy takes over at 3rd base and brings his power to bump up the bottom of the order. Oh and our clean up hitter Adam Lind is back tonight as well for what its worth.

All joking aside it will be nice to have another bat behind Bautista in the order to perhaps strike a little more fear into opposing lineups when they are too scared to pitch to Bautista, No offense to Rivera and J.P who have been swinging it well of late but Lind is a little scarier standing there in the batting box.

Frankly I just want to start putting some distance between us and the O's in the standings, if I don't start seeing games that matter late in the season I think I am going to start to lose it.....
