Not quite where we want to be, but alas, here we are. The Jays will try to avoid being swept behind Joe Biagini, which doesn't inspire a ton of confidence, but it's baseball so who really knows. If you are feeling frustrated and discouraged, please remember that the Athletics gave us Josh Donaldson, and for that we are grateful.
OT news - Jose Bautista has been released by the Braves.
Here are today's lineups. Granderson is back in the lead off spot, and Maile will get the start as catcher.
