It's the battle of the birds as the final match-up before the all-star break. Baltimore are in first place for the number one pick next season with their 25-61 record. The Blue Jays are a full seven games better, in fourth. Your Blue Jays have been playing better but there are some enforced changes for this weekend. Marcus Stroman will not pitch before the break, resting his "cramp" that's obviously was not a cramp. The enigma, wrapped in a riddle that is Aaron Sanchez will pitch tonight, who knows what that will bring.

In the DSL, the Jays had the first eight hitters of an inning walk, scoring five runs. That must have been fun to watch. The ninth hitter hit into a double play to spoil the excitement. Josh Winkowski was excellent for Dunedin who kept up their winning ways. Elsewhere Buffalo, New Hampshire, Vancouver, Lansing and Bluefield all lost.

It was a mixed bag on the farm. Buffalo split a doubleheader with Patrick Kivlehan hitting a home run in both games. Nate Pearson was pulled early in New Hampshire's loss. Dunedin made it exciting but Cullen Large and Cal Stevenson delivered an extra innings win. Lansing won, the sad sack Vancouver Canadians lost. Bluefield put up 14 runs for the second night in a row.

The Jays take their good, Royals level, form against the jet-lagged Red Sox. Can the Jays hitters continue their good hitting against the three big Red Sox starters? Will the Red Sox have any carry-over from their London trip? Maybe they will get sleepy in the middle innings, it will be bed time in London at game time.

If memory serves Wells Aug 92, Doc Apr 99/00, and Carpenter sometime in 02. I wonder where Sanchez's month ranks?

Here you go, christaylor!

I miss Earl Weaver, and I do wonder from time to time what he'd make of where the game has gone these days.

Its a long weekend, four game, battle at the bottom with the teams with the third and fourth fewest wins in baseball battling it out for draft pick order. For the Jays Justin Smoak is back and Billy McKinney is gone, to Buffalo we assume.

Buffalo split a doubleheader. They had bad pitching in game one and lost, good pitching in game two and won. The hitting was poor in both games. New Hampshire won thanks to Kevin Smith and Logan Warmoth, backing up Yennsy Diaz. Dunedin, Lansing, Vancouver and Bluefield lost. The two rookie teams won, the GCL hitters are on fire.

It was a mixed night on the farm. The best performances came in Dunedin where Joey Murray dominated and the hitters were feeling it. New Hampshire split a doubleheader with Jon Harris pitching well. The GCL and DSL Jays also won, although the GCL Jays had a couple of ringers on the mound.

The title is adapted from a 1990's song. I hope you get it

Your Blue Jays head into Boston with one thing on their minds....can we win one game in this series? That's how things have been going recently. Boston have had an up and down season so far, and many would say they have disappointed, but their record is 41-35 and they would be in the playoffs if the season ended now. The Red Sox have won seven of their last eight games and their only loss in that spell came in 17 innings. As it happens, the Red Sox throw out three starters against the Jays with none of them having a winning record. But don't get your hopes up. Chris Sale is 3-7, Rick Porcello 5-6, and Saturday's starter, Brian Johnson, is 1-1.
