An empty glass, the lady sings
Eyes swollen like a bee sting
Blinded you lost your way
Through the side streets and the alleyway
Like a star exploding in the night
Falling to the city in broad daylight

In view of the powerful and potent mojo conjured up by the Photo of the Day, we have had Named For Hank looking high and low for a suitable picture of Dave Bush, in order to get today's action off to a good start.

The Jays and Roy Halladay go for four in a row as they face the Yankees and the Big Unit at 7:05 p.m. Halladay is kept on his regular 5 day rotation, while Dave Bush will pitch with extra rest tomorrow.

I wonder if tall hitters do better than short hitters against tall pitchers. So, our little prizeless contest for the day- what will Alex Rios' line for today be?
A lunchtime treat for us, today, as the Jays and Rays face off before hopping onto planes and jetting out of town. No home team TV coverage, but you can tune in the Fan on the radio and let Jerry tell you all about it.

Josh Towers vs. Doug Waechter, first pitch at 12:37.

I'm plugged in and loaded
Don't forget to phone in
The self destruct is holding
I'm counting, I'm counting, but only to three

The Jays have lost 3 in a row at home - they're back at .500 - and it's been a while since a starter not named Halladay did a quality job. Dave Bush is going to change all that this afternoon, and you heard it here first.

The feisty Josh Towers faces off against Daniel Cabrera tonight at the Rogers Centre. Game time is 7:07. Hey, does anyone know why they went with :07 this year instead of :05?

The Raptors' season is over, so there will be no more radio conflicts -- that means the broadcast this evening will be back on the Fan 590. TV coverage is by TSN. After last night's stellar showing by the Rogers Sportsnet crew, I'm looking forward to the opportunity to compare it to what we're getting from TSN.
The Blue Jays got a wake-up call from the Yanks last night, so they'll give themselves over to the arm of Morpheus tonight. Gustavo baffled the New Yorkers last September, and you can bet the Yankees have been reviewing their DVDs of that game. We'll see if it helps them tonight. The Jays would just like a starter other than Doc to make it past the third inning. The Decline Phase of Mike Mussina's Career starts for the visitors. Should be a good one.
It's 3-0 at the Rogers Centre for the Yankees. What's this about a ball vanishing into the scoreboard?

The first of two mini-series against those guys from the 2003 and 2004 ALCS concludes today with Roy Halladay against Bronson Arroyo.
A cofee and a bagel might be more appropriate today than a beer and a hotdog. It's an 11 am start for the Boston Marathon/Patriots Day game.

Or as Spencer Fordin puts it:

Towers tries to rise above Texas

Yeah, I know, everyone seems to be calling him Morpheus (in Oakland, they called him "The Fly") - but Liam is an even bigger Tragically Hip fan than myself and Gus the Polar Bear was his idea, and I'm sticking with it. It's blood, you know.
