Going for the sweep. Have I mentioned how thankful I am for the Orioles?
JA Happ gets the start today, which may be his last in a Blue Jays uniform. Of course, we've been saying this for weeks, and he's still here.
Marco Estrada won't be starting tomorrow for the Jays, instead he will be a Fisher Cat for the day and start in AA. Gibbons is considering do a Rays-esque bullpen day and starting Santos or Axford.
Here are the lineups for today. Gurriel has been activated on the DL, and Ureña has been optioned back down. Grichuk has been moved up to the number 2 slot, and Solarte has been pushed down to the 5th slot.
