Yesterday there was a debate raging about how close the Jays are to being a competitive team. Let's examine that question in a little more depth.

Zach Stewart was the headliner on Thursday as he showed why the Jays are excited about his future.  There were no angels on this day, at least not for the bullpen, who conspired to lose the game in the ninth inning.  The Jays were in some ways lucky to get to the ninth inning tied, Jeremy Guthrie had been knocking them down but he injured his back and had to leave the game after five innings.  His replacement, Jim Johnson, was not really ready and what usually happens in these situations is that the pitcher can be hit around.  The Jays did and scored twice but EE snuffed out the rally by hitting into a DP.  That was it until Jon Rauch gave up three ground balls, only one of which was hit hard, in the ninth.

Justin Verlander threw a no-hitter against the Blue Jays this afternoon. He was perfect aside from a well-earned walk by JP Arencibia in the 8th inning on a 12-pitch walk. Arencibia was erased on a double-play by Encarnacion. Verlander only struck four batters all game, but he punctuated the performance by striking out Rajai Davis for the final out of the game.

We need an exorcism. I don't know what it is about that stupid arena, but the Jays are now 6-19 there against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Does this sound familiar? A 30 year old outfielder, who made his ML debut back in 2004... reinventing himself in mid-career?

We're talking, of course, about the guy who ruined Jesse Litsch's day yesterday afternoon.
