Mark Buehrle finishes his 2013 season as does Miguel Gonzalez in another means nothing game.
Newly signed Ryan Langerhans is in the Blue Jay lineup, Adam Lind is not. Moises Sierra is back in there, Rajai Davis is missing, his wife was due to give birth today. The Toronto Star had a feature today on all the new babies for the Blue Jay players. Davis, Neil Wagner, Aaron Loup and Adam Lind ( a while ago). I think that was it.
The Orioles were eliminated from playoff contention last night so today and tomorrow's games "don't matter". The Jays are still in the running for a top ten draft pick and they are one win short of their win total in 2012.
Esmil Rogers will pitch against Bud Norris tonight.
The Yankees still have a glimmer of hope for the wild card, even though they lost against the Red Sox they are still just 2.5 games out of the wild card. They continue to be hit by injuries, Derek Jeter is out for the season, Brett Gardner might only be able to run and A-Rod has been in and out of the lineup with various leg issues.
Meanwhile on the Jays side of the ledger, will Edwin be back with his sore wrist? Will Colby Rasmus' body be healed? Moises Sierra has been the hot hand, can he keep it going? Meanwhile the Ryan Goins for 2013 train has derailed, how many games will he start?
The Jays look to continue their hot streak. They will have to do it tonight without Edwin, he is not in the lineup, I assume due to the balky wrist. With Edwin out all the kids get to play including Kevin Pillar at DH tonight.
On the bump it's Mark Buehrle facing Jerome Williams.
Can the Jays win another series to make it four straight? They gave a good chance against the Twins. The matchups are:
Friday - RA Dickey vs. Mike Pelfrey
Saturday - JA Happ vs. Kevin Correia
Sunday - Esmil Rogers vs. Andrew Albers
The Jays have won two series in a row. They go for number three over the next two nights.
Todd Redmond goes against Wade Miley today. Wednesday it's Mark Buehrle vs Randall Delgado.
