BLUE JAYS (59-74, Fourth Place AL East)
Lineup TBA
Pitching: RHP Roy Halladay (13-8, 3.13).
TIME/TV: 7:07, YES.

No Mo:Rivera appears to still be unavailable with a sore groin. He did not have a bullpen session today either. The Yankees will take his recovery slowly being they are 7.5 games up and will need him healthy for the playoffs.
A-Roidian: A-Rod is on a 12-game hitting streak right now, bringing his average up to .276 and driving in 12 runs.
Jobber, Jobber, Jobber: He's only pitching 4 innings or so today. It's their "master plan." Personally, I think this is taking steps backwards and I never heard of a pitcher having to do this before. This sounds like something they should have done early in the season, but what do I know.

UPDATE 7:37: Jim here. Jerry Crasnick wrote a nice article on Derek Jeter on about his career as he approaches Lou Gehrig's hit mark. There was also an interesting article on the end of Gehru's career in the New York Times this morning. Both were good reads.

UPDATE 7:45: Jim again: So Cone wasn't at Pettitte's near-perfect game, so Kay finds a segway to compare it to Cone's perfect game for what seems like the millionth time this season.

That's probably it for update for the night. We may or may not get a game recap in tonight, but we'll definately have something tomorrow.

UPDATE 7:58: Well, it's Jim with another update. So, I lied, deal with it. But I saw Jonathan Papelbum of the Red Sox got taking too long to pitch. MLB should go easy on him, cause he has to take his foot out of his mouth before he can pitch. ( I was going to mention him taking his head out of another body part, but wanted to keep it PG).

And are the Yankees really having a Hand Sanitizer Keychain promotion? That has to be one of the weirder ones I've seen.
