We are officially over the half way point for the season, and Marcus Stroman just got his first win. Who would have thought.

The roof is closed for what looks to be an incredibly hot and humid day. Severe heat warnings have been issued. As I sit at the gate ready to board my plane to Toronto, I'm slightly unenthused.

John Axford (known by his Spotify user name, axfacekilla) has made a playlist of over 500 songs exclusively by Canadian artists. Pretty rad.

Here are today's lineups:
