Long Flights and Late Nights

I wonder what cinematic treat the Blue Jays were subjected to on the flight from Toronto to Los Angeles yesterday? It seems like in-flight movies are never the type of film that you’d actively go out and see, but the kind that is mildly entertaining if you’re forced to sit through it. Which means it was probably something along the lines of “Marley and Me” or “Yes Man”. Just a little food for thought as the Blue Jays head into their 5-game west coast swing.

Surprisingly the Jays actually have a decent track record playing on the west coast against AL West opponents. Over the past five seasons, the Blue Jays are 20-21 in games versus Oakland and Los Angeles on the road. Both the A’s and Angels have struggled the first part of this season, but like any team that has a record close to .500 this early in the year, never count them completely out of the running to win their division.

Be sure to throw back a couple of Red Bulls and join Drew from Ghostrunner on First as he’ll be liveblogging tonight’s late-night affair over at The Score. Tonight’s 10:05pm start time means you can get the kiddies off to bed early, then sneak downstairs and enjoy the entire game in peace and quiet.


Serenity now!

    I love the late night West Coast baseball. Halladay vs. some kid named Ortega? I’m going with the mighty Jays.

    I don’t think there is a pitcher right now in either the Angels or Athletics roster that anyone in the Jays rotation can’t beat.
