The Blue Jays will open the SkyDome doors this Sunday at 11:30 a.m. for the public to view batting practice. A $2.00 donation to the Jays Care Foundation is suggested. You can watch the Yankees take batting practice at noon, then at 3:00 p.m., the home team gets the field. J.P. Ricciardi will be on hand to answer questions from fans, and there will be autograph and photo opportunities. Sounds like a great deal for families.

Tonight's game has been a masterpiece for Pete Walker so far; he needed about eight pitches to get three groundouts in the first, and retired the side on six pitches in the second. The woeful D-Rays can't even hit a fly ball off Pete, and their latest retread pitcher, Rob Bell, got rocked in the third; it's 6-0 Toronto, with Stewart and Hudson contributing, as usual. Mike Wilner just said "this is starting to get sad." The season won't really begin in Tampa until Lou Piniella throws out the first base.

According to Tom and Jerry, the final 25-man roster, and the rotation, will be announced after tomorrow's game against the Phillies. Mark Hendrickson may pitch the third game of the Yankees series or be reserved for the first one in Minnesota. On Thursday, starting at 1:15 p.m., you can watch the Yanks-Jays game, as there's a free Webcast on -- it's also a chance to see if the new package is worth buying.
