Hey Hey, Jays - Red Sox coming at ya
Battle of the lefties tonight: Brett Cecil makes his first start in two weeks against the tough-luck Jon Lester
The Jays look to avoid a home sweep, something that should not ever happen.
Cito goes buck wild with the lineup against the lefty. I'll hold you in suspense and instead present the Sox juggernaut

That's Wells - BARAJAS - Millar - Ruiz as the heart of the order. Not a On base percentage above 30 among them!
Kevin Millar at first base, once again proving you can suck at two things and still play in the big leagues.
We're under way! First pitch is a strike.
One down! Second pitch is a high pop up that Edwin Encarnacion collects for the first out.
Cecil brushes Pedroia off the plate with a 1-2 fastball. Pedroia tried to stick his arm in front of it. Sigh. 2-2
There is a humongous storm in southern ontario right now, that could be problem.
Brett Cecil walks Pedroia, a problem in its own right. V Mart the switch hitting catching machine is next to menace Cecil
Wow, loud thunderclap bleeds through the on field mics. Tornado's y'all!
Cecil misses low to big Victor to run the count 2-1. Martinez hit a long home run last night, he's scary
Not scary here. Humpbacked liner to Scutaro is the second out. Yook will hit next and is sure to aggravate me somehow
Did I mention I love Brett Cecil. Big body, two nice breaking balls, including a dirty curve to strike out Youkilis. Good stuff, inning over.
A word on the comments: make them worthwhile. Gimmie something to work with. I know the Red Sox suck, you should tell me WHY they do.
You mean I actually have to describe the game? Ugh.
Rogers rolled out three new HD channels today, maybe that is the problem.
Lester starts Scutaro with a ball high and outside. Marco loves to take, even more than your kid sister
Infield hit! Alex Gonzales makes a diving stop of Scutaro's smash to the hole. Gonzo can grab but it's too deep for a throw. Lead off man is on for the Jays
There is plenty of hope for the Blue Jays. Hill, Lind, Snider, Cecil, Romero, Alphabet soup, League, Marsnicky. Just be patient.
Aaron Hill drills a double into the left field corner! That ball was hammered! Two men in scoring position for Vernon Wells
Let the record show we have our first Veggie Tales reference of the night at 7:21 PM
Just sad Dave, the heart of this order has angina.
I dunno Carl, if they don't trade Roy Halladay THEY STILL HAVE ROY HALLADAY. And that ain't not bad
I know. Not good. The Meal Ticket is on its way out of town.
Vernon Wells is staring at a full count
Vernon Wells drew a walk!!! Faith and Begorrah!
