Because not even a speeding car could have picked them off last night. 5 stolen bases for the 'Nuts and a solid spot start for one of my favourite sleepers in New Hampshire. 3 (and a half?) wins for the affiliates.

If you want to get something done right, ask a Mississaugan. It's true for Hazel McCallion and it's true for the Blue Jays' minor-league system, which went 1-2 (with a rainout) last night and owes its lone victory to a powerful ex-Aggie and a teenaged southpaw suburbanite.

There are certain dead giveaways that a once-successful creative venture is running out of ideas. There'll be an episode featuring a seance, or two characters stuck in an elevator. Or maybe there'll be a very special guest appearance by Dick Van Dyke. Or they'll add a cool new kid named Roy. Or Ted McGinley will show up.

Whether or not you can jump a freight train, it is a sure thing that rain, early morning or otherwise, will disrupt a pitching staff. It happened to the big club in Cleveland, and the farm affiliates were not immune to Mother Nature's power on a 1-3 day on Saturday.
