A win. Holy crow a win! In Charm City! And no wild accusations from (sore) loser Jason Hammel about the man in white helping the Jays beat him! Huzzah! The all star break couldn't come at a better time. Who knows? Maybe the Jays will go on another 11 game winning streak? Yeah, I know... For those wondering, the title is a quote allegedly attributed to the ultra annoying Chris Berman from one of Deadspin's stories about the home run derby announcer.

The Man In White is out there!

Minor Leaguer's Addition:

Interest in trading for Garza remains high - ESPN Chicago
According to Bruce Levine, the Blue Jays and the Rangers are the "front-runners" to acquire Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs. It really really surprise me if the Jays do pull of a trade for the rental arm. Alex Anthopoulos could just be sending his staff to check him out, take notes, and do due diligence. They could also be trying to drive up prices for other teams in the AL East. He will cost dearly.

Baseball History - July 14th - National Pastime - Baseball History
2010 The Blue Jays trade starting shortstop Alex Gonzalez along with minor leaguers Tim Collins and Tyler Pastornicky to the Braves in exchange for infielder Yunel Escobar and southpaw Jo-Jo Reyes.

2011 Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada, who entered the game as a pinch hitter in the Yankees' 16-7 loss to Toronto at the Rogers Centre, appear in their 1,660th regular-season game as teammates, the most two players have been together in franchise history. Lou Gehrig and Tony Lazzeri had set the previous team mark in 1937 Note: this is the infamous Man In White Game cause it seems that no one is allowed to score 16 runs on the Yankees without cheating.
