Boston Red Sox v Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Blue Jays will give it another go today in game two of the series, with lefty J.A. Happ on the mound to take on the Red Sox and John Lackey, yes the same John Lackey coming off Tommy John surgery that somehow got a five year, $82 million deal in the 2009 off-season. Jose Reyes, very quickly becoming a fan favourite in the city, had one hell of a night, recording four hits, and falling just a triple short of the cycle. As for a Jose Bautista update, he tested the ankle during batting practice, but will once again sit.

 

The Blue Jays bullpen, which was short handed last night with Casey Janssen, Darren Oliver and Steve Delabar unavailable, will have a new face in it today after the team announced they recalled Dave Bush from Buffalo. So they still have the eight man bullpen and three man bench.

Shi Davidi has a recap of last night’s festivities in which John Farrell reiterated the following:

“I can look myself in the mirror and say that I gave the Blue Jays organization everything I had on a given day, to work as diligently, as thoroughly as possible to win a game on a given night. We had to deal with a lot of things along the way.”

Richard Griffin writes about last night in photo blog fashion. Griffin also tweets that Brett Lawrie is still not scheduled for minor league games.

Chris Toman of gamereax.com writes about the impressive outing by reliever Brett Cecil last night.
