If Sparkman has a good rehab stint, then I hope the jays find a way to keep him (Royals unlikely to agree to a deal as they are rebuilding next year) - he can be the long man in the pen - if the jays are sellers at the deadline, maybe he gets some starts - time to say bye to guys like Grilli.

Wonder how long until Grilli gets an 'injury' and takes until September to recover?

Jason Leblebijian hit sixth. In other words, he hit behind the top and the middle of the order. Does this configuration bear meanings when he would be promoted to Toronto for specific tasks such as pinch hitting, getting on base et cetera.

I hope they keep Sparkman as well. Last night's game against Tampa is a good example of the type of game they can use him in as he could have thrown multiple innings in that one. Also as mentioned if the Jays decide to sell at the deadline by trading Estrada/Liriano then he could get starts for the last month or so as well. Don't let a free asset go for nothing. There's no real roster crunch. Grilli is toast. Just a matter of making the move.

I agree on keeping Sparkman.
