Jays play in Seattle at 10:10 PM, Dickey vs Iwakuma (2.76 ERA 131 ERA+, 1.3 HR/9 1.4 BB/9, 8.0 K/9).  A few other things happened in MLB today too that you might have heard of, and by the time the Jays play we'll have seen the A-Rod circus go into overdrive while the others suspended are forgotten.

These are the best seasons by Blue Jays pitchers. Something to cheer us up in these dark times. Thank you. I feel much better now.

All eyes were on the pitchers on Friday. JA Happ was not sharp, Danny Salazar and the Clippers relievers were. The Bisons were no hit for eight and two thirds until Anthony Gose singled.

Kyle Drabek pitched four solid innings for New Hampshire as did Deck McGuire pitching in relief. The Fisher Cats won.

Aaron Sanchez pitched five shutout innings but the bullpen was not good, Dunedin had only two hits and lost easily.

Taylor Cole has had an up and down season but he was outstanding on Friday and Lansing cruised.

Alberto Tirado struggled but battled through as Bluefield won. Jesus Tinoco was outstanding as the GCL Jays split a doubleheader. Vancouver blew a big lead before winning in extras.

Among the players the Jays faced on Friday were the uni-named Jose Jose, Socrates Brito who was philosophical about the Lugnuts win, and Confesor Lara, against whom the GCL Jays didn't have a prayer.

The Anaheim lineup will provide a different challenge tonight and a truer test for Redmond. With JA Happ almost ready to come back Redmond is competing with Esmil Rogers and Josh Johnson to see who keeps their spot in the rotation.

Josh Johnson (29, RHP, 1-7, 6.08) tries to show his last 3 games were flukes (13 2/3 IP 19 ER 4 BB 17 SO 6 HR) while the Angels hope Garrett Richards (25, RHP, 2-4, 4.33) is Dr. Jekyll (2 of last 4 games were 0 runs allowed) rather than Mr. Hyde (other 2 of past 4 were 5+ runs).
