Tonight we saw something we had yet to see this season. Besides the chat. The Blue Jays gave Dave Bush a lead to work with.

The Blue Jays are now 16-10 in games for which Iím not writing the Game Report. My 0-3 record as post-game scribe might get me dropped from the rotation.

Orlando Hudson and Photo of the Day mojo recipient Russ Adams had two hits each, and Miguel Batista earned a fine save, but tonight belonged to Josh Towers.

And it's a good thing J.P. picked them up. Jason Frasor deserves his own river in British Columbia after that masterpiece. Seven batters up, eight outs recorded.

Oh, and Gregg Zaun? Well, I don't care how good or bad any of the catchers in the American League are between now and Tuesday, June 12. Going Going Zaun deserves to go, small sample size and early season fluke be damned. Picture of the Week mojo is powerful.

The Blue Jays rode a six-run sixth inning and a key error by The Prettier Alex Gonzalez to a 7-5 win over the Devil Rays. Ted Lilly got the win thanks to six innings of solid work, despite an ugly start to the seventh that saw him depart after giving up a three-run homer to rookie Jonny Gomes. The bullpen put in solid work to see him home.

Imploding bullpens make us all a little crazy. You've been warned.

It has long been my secret theory that the Blue Jays have suffered karmic punishment these last twelve years. They have offended the gods of baseball, and must be made to suffer.
