First off, I’ll be liveblogging this afternoon’s series finale and the final game of the Blue Jays nine game road trip over at The Score starting at 1:30pm.
It looks to be a pretty great pitcher’s duel between Shaun Marcum and Clay Buchholz. In his last start in Toronto last Wednesday, Buchholz handled the Jays with relative ease through eight scoreless innings and is a career 5-3 with a 2.79 ERA versus the Blue Jays.
The road to recovery continues for Scott Richmond – he had his first successful rehab start with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats last night. Richmond went five innings striking six along the way while only giving up one hit; a solo home run. He still may be a few rehab starts away from being ready to join the club, but I think Richmond could be a viable option for bullpen relief or even a couple of spot starts in September with the Blue Jays.
I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Archi is doing his own version of The Bachelor featuring Toronto’s most eligible baseball-loving singles called “The Jayting Game”. It’s a pretty interesting concept: he takes a date out to the ballpark and they both write a follow-up post afterward.
This video has been floating around the Blue Jays blogosphere for the past few days, but I figured I’d share this one with you guys anyway. It’s courtesy of Alex Clark and features some footage from the ’92/’93 glory days.
