With Sunday's 6-4 win over Seattle, the Jays moved four games over .500 for the first time this season.
Now that they've gotten over that hump, could a bit of a winning streak be far behind? It would likely be too late to really make any September noise, but it would at least make us feel a little better for next year.
Gregg Zaun, masher
Two homers in two days. Zaun rules. Now please give him a day off.
A study in contrasts
As we zipped through yesterday's game on the PVR, we noticed the stark difference between Matt Stairs (hitting one into orbit for his 18th homer of the season) and Reed Johnson (waving weakly at strike three in his only at bat). One has to wonder how you can keep running Reed out there if he is either not healthy enough to perform, or if his top level of performance is this low. His .302 OBP is killing this team at the top of the lineup.
At last, our long national nightmare is over
After going stale for 12 days, Jeff Blair finally dropped some lineup card related knowledge on the Globe's baseball blog. Its about time.
