all info from bluejays.com

Monday August 10, 7:05, SNET

Marc Rzepczynski, LHP (1-3, 3.74) vs Sergio Mitre, RHP (1-0, 7.50)

Scouting report:

Blue Jays: Rzepczynski took the loss as the Blue Jays fell, 8-4, to the Yankees on Wednesday at Rogers Centre. He pitched six innings, plus two batters, allowing four runs (all earned) on five hits, both of which tied season highs. He issued only one walk, though -- a season best -- and struck out seven. He has struck out at least seven batters in three of his six big league starts. Wednesday's tilt was Rzepczynski's only career appearance against the Yankees.

Yankees: Two ground ball singles and a bloop hit cost Mitre two runs in the first inning Wednesday and also cost him a chance at the win. Manager Joe Girardi, thinking Mitre had grown tired, took him out of the game after just 4 1/3 innings and 92 pitches. And so Mitre, who said he still had quite a few pitches in him, threw fewer than five innings for the second straight start. He'll get another crack at the Blue Jays in his next start, after serving up a total of eight hits to them last Wednesday.

Tuesday August 11, 7:05, SNET

Scott Richmond, RHP (6-6, 3.97) vs Joba Chamberlain, RHP (8-2, 3.73)

Scouting report:

Blue Jays: Richmond will take the hill at Yankee Stadium for his first start for the Blue Jays since July 31 -- his first outing after a month-long stay on the disabled list with a sore right arm. In that outing against the A's, the 29-year-old rookie allowed six runs (four earned) on seven hits over just three innings. Richmond needed 86 pitches to get through the performance, during which he struck out two and walked two en route to a loss.

Yankees: Chamberlain looks to rebound from a so-so start against the Red Sox on Thursday, when he burned up 108 pitches in five innings, logging the victory with the benefit of an eight-run fourth inning. Chamberlain allowed four runs on six hits to Boston, walking a season-high seven as he appeared to be too strong with extra rest. Chamberlain is trying for his fifth consecutive win and has not lost since June 18. Since the All-Star Break, he is 4-0 with a 2.02 ERA in four starts.

Wednesday August 12, 1:05, SNET

Ricky Romero, LHP (10-5, 3.66) vs A.J. Burnett, RHP (10-5, 3.67)

Scouting report:

Blue Jays: On Friday night in Toronto, Romero picked up his second loss in a strong 11-start stretch for the rookie. Against the Orioles, Romero yielded four runs on five hits over six innings, finishing with three strikeouts and two walks. Romero only allowed one hit among the first 16 hitters he faced, but allowed four hits and one costly leadoff walk in a four-run sixth for Baltimore. The defeat snapped a three-game winning streak for the young lefty.

Yankees: Burnett will try to one-up his last outing against his former club after handcuffing the Red Sox in a 7 2/3 inning showing on Thursday. Burnett allowed just one hit while walking six, taking a no-decision in the Bombers' 15-inning, 2-0 victory. Burnett is 4-1 with a 3.34 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break and last faced Toronto on July 3 in New York, hurling seven innings of two-run ball in a 4-2 win.

The Jays should do everyone a favour and pay Vernon to stay at home for the next few years.

are you kidding me? I don't want him anywhere close to the Rogers Centre. His AWAY stats are decent, he is batting .309 and is just a hair under .800 OPS. I would prefer that he only plays on the road.
