The Bringer of Rain is back in Toronto, but wearing the wrong uniform.

Everything is about him today, they are going to have a video tribute before the game.

Josh had some stuff to say:

It seems like a little bit of revisionism. As I remember, he decided to go it his own way and not use the Jays staff to recover from injury. Blaming them after seems a little disingenuous.

We have Font playing opener again and Calgarian Mike Siroka pitching for the Braves. I dont want to cheer against him but I’ll find a way.
