The Jays took the first two games of this extended series but the odds are more even for these next two. Toronto have the home field advantage but the Phillies are throwing their best two pitchers this year, Cliff Lee and AJ Burnett. The Jays respond with the senior members of the rotation, Mark Buehrle and RA Dickey.

Adam Lind should return tomorrow, there was no need to activate him today with Cliff Lee on the mound for the Phillies. The status of Dioner Navarro and Brett Lawrie is unknown at this point. The Jays bench will be down to one if they are unable to play.

The AL East is really tight right now. Can some team , and maybe the Jays, go on a run to take command?

Update 3:45pm: Navarro is back in the lineup tonight. Lawrie is on the bench. Kratz is DH, he would have caught Lee in Philly last season. Bench, other than Lawrie, is Thole and Getz.
