Ah, lunch time on Monday, possibly the dreariest time at work except for maybe 9:00 am on Monday. But today we have baseball to cheer us up...

Sadly, the Jays are not broadcasting today's game. If anyone sniffs out a working Indians feed, please share it.

Three days into Spring Training and already there's a rematch against Koskie's old team. How will the Fightin' Jays fare this time around?

The pitching matchup should be a good one, at least for the first two innings -- according to Saturday's Globe and Mail, we'll be seeing the mighty Roy Halladay up against the equally mighty Johan Santana.

MLB determined that there was "bad blood" between Toronto and Tampa Bay back in '03, maybe because the Rays thought the Jays were rhyming copycats intent on stealing their cleverly original idea of a black alternate jersey. Since that fateful homestand with its manufactured enmity, well, there has been some halfhearted bad blood.

Sadly, without Victor "My balls, they got a lot of move" Zambrano pitching for Tampa, there's not much of a chance that we'll see a half-dozen hit batsmen, ejections, or a bench-clearing brawl. Or at least we won't see all that started by a perfectly innocent series of wild pitches.

The moment is finally here: the Jays are playing an actual baseball game! Gustavo Chacin is starting for the good guys, and personally I'm hoping that he displays a little more of that magic that we saw at the end of last season.

Start time is listed as 1:05pm. Last time I checked there wasn't a Jays broadcast of the game, but the Twins are running it on their radio network. Internet feeds are supposed to be blacked out, but maybe we'll get lucky and find one that works.

The new season is almost upon us; the Jays played an inter-squad game yesterday and will play a full-blown Spring Training game against the Twins on Friday, and I am just itching to see and hear some baseball.
