Yeah, I think we need some sort of ceremony to left a curse off this team.


Lineup

TORONTO BLUE JAYS OAKLAND A\'S
Rajai Davis, RF Coco Crisp, CF
Colby Rasmus, CF Jonny Gomes, RF
Brett Lawrie, 3B Josh Reddick, DH
Edwin Encarnacion, DH Yoenis Cespedes, LF
Travis Snider, LF Chris Carter, 1B
Yan Gomes, 1B Brandon Inge, 3B
Kelly Johnson, 2B Kurt Suzuki, C
Jeff Mathis, C Brandon Hicks, SS
Omar Vizquel, SS Jemile Weeks, 2B

Get used to seeing Jeff Mathis in the lineup. Starting pitchers:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Aaron Laffey 2-1 9 5 0 0 0 0 39.0 37 14 12 5 8 22 2.77 1.15


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Tom Milone 9-6 19 19 1 0 0 0 121.1 119 52 45 16 26 86 3.34 1.20

With 8 guys in the bullpen, we have a lot of arms in the pen. Carpenter (67 pitches yesterday) and Loup (27) likely won't be available. JA Happ threw 49 two days ago, so we likely won't see him either. But that still leaves 5 pitchers. Casey Janssen, Brandon Lyon and Darren Oliver haven't pitched for a few days so getting them into a game wouldn't hurt.

You know the rules. Mostly it boils down to 'don't be terrible'. No pictures until the game is over.

Go Jays.
