BLUE JAYS (54-58, Fourth Place AL East)
Lineup TBA

Let the Good Times Roll: They Yankees are 5-1 on the homestand, have won 8 of their last 9 games, are 27 games over .500 and 5.5 games up in the division with A.J. Burnett on the mound today.
Can They Do It Again?: The Yankees have hit back-to-back home runs in their last three games, can they make it 4?
Homer Haven: The Yankees have hit 14 home runs in their last 6 games. They lead the majors with 173 home runs, 105 at home.
Not Quite Invincible: Mariano Rivera gave up his first run since June 12 yesterday after 2 months of throwing scoreless innings.
Joba Update: Girardi has said Chad Gaudin will get the start Sunday and Joba's next start will be on Wednesday. This is to make sure he can limit his innings and stay in the rotation and pitch in the postseason this season.

I don't know if I'll be able to throw in any updates for this game, but I'm sure you will find enough great insight from Michael Kay during the broadcast. That is if he doesn't make the broadcast an extension of his radio show like he normally does.

UPDATE 4:45: So I (Jim) just get home as the game is tied 3-3 in the 10th. Jeter left the game early with a contusion (bruise) on his foot after getting hit by a pitch in the first inning.

UPDATE 5:10: Wow, Robbie got a hit with runners in scoring position. Nice win for the Yanks.
