This game was over two batters in as the Jays crushed the Angels 13-1 Wednesday night in Anaheim to improve to 20-10 on the season.  There was really no need for the rally monkey to show up for this one after being let go from a previous gig.

First and foremost, the mighty Roy Halladay. Even if he hasn't quite rounded into full Doc mode yet.

I've gone from rags to riches

That's my boyScott "Big and" Richmond went seven solid innings as the Jays trumped the Royals 8-1 Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium.  Mad props and big ups to the former Edmonton Cracker-Cat as he improves to 3-0 on the season!

It was a senseless slaughter at the Cell as the Jays socked the Pale Hose by two touchdowns Friday night.  No wonder Chicago traded for Jay Cutler!!

Like the tune he once used for striding to the plate with the Orioles, Kevin Millar came through under pressure by rapping one to the left-center field gap to drive in the winning run.  That helped the Jays break a come from ahead 7-7 tie for an 8-7 victory over the Texas Rangers in 11 innings at Rogers Centre Wednesday night.  Word to your Texas mothers!  (but in a nice way for our Texas readers!).

I think I trust Jason Frasor.

-- Cito Gaston, yesterday

Today the Blue Jays enjoy their first off day, and it's safe to say that even those of us who were starry-eyed optimists about this year's team  (I think that's WillRain and myself) weren't expecting a 10-4 start.

The Twins should be thankful they managed to take one out of four.  Roy Halladay and the offence were nails as the Jays creamed the Twinkies 9-2 Thursday night at the Metrodome.
