I had a quick look at the calendar to make sure it wasn't April first -- Jeff Blair at the Globe and Mail has revealed that Troy Glaus will indeed play shortstop tonight against the Chicago White Sox. It's not permanent --

"I'm just looking at tonight's game," Gibbons said. "This guy is one of the better pitchers in the league and we need offence. These guys (the White Sox) are going to score a lot of runs and we're going to have to keep pace."

From the article, Troy sounds like he's down with the plan. More than ever, today I am very irritated that the Memorial Cup is pre-empting my televisual enjoyment of the Jays. Like Frank Menechino pitching (which I saw live, in person), this is one thing that I really would like to see. Here's hoping that Glaus is halfway as good at short as Frank was at relief.
