Remember what the dormouse said - it's going to be weird out there tonight. Many of the Blue Jays will be facing the familiar baseball icon Roy Halladay for the very first time. Naturally, they'll do it playing as the home team in the opposition's ballpark, before a large crowd of friendly Philly partisans.

Yup, the expensive guy is down, the kid (OK, not so young but I just turned 41) is up.

Update: Encarnacion has been designated for assignment (could be traded, released, or just assigned to AAA) and Scott Richmond has been reinstated from the 60-day DL and optioned to Dunedin(A).
