Toronto Blue Jays



Tuesday, August 23, 7:07 PM ET

http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/KC-Chen.jpg VS http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/jays-morrow.jpg
Bruce Chen........Brandon Morrow
8-5, 4.17 ERA............9-7, 4.41 ERA

Chen survived a wild first couple of innings to earn his second win in 13 career starts against the Yankees. He went six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks and giving up two solo homers.

Morrow allowed just one run in six innings during his last start against Seattle. He struck out a season-high 12 batters to mark the sixth time in his career he recorded at least 10 K's. Morrow has nine quality starts in past 13 outings.



Wednesday, August 24, 7:07 PM ET

http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/KC_Hochevar.jpg VS http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/romero-1.jpg
Luke Hochevar........Ricky Romero
8-10, 4.93 ERA..........12-9, 2.73 ERA

Hochevar didn't get beat up too badly by the Red Sox, but took the loss as he allowed four runs in six innings on eight hits and two walks. He also struck out six as he took his first loss at home since June.

Romero recorded his third career shutout during his last start against Oakland. He allowed just three hits and two walks while striking out six. Toronto's ace is riding a career high five-game winning streak and has a 0.89 ERA over that span.


Thursday, August 25, 7:07 PM ET

http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/KC-Francis.jpg VS http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/tor-Cecil.jpg
Jeff Francis..............Brett Cecil
4-14, 4.89 ERA...........4-6, 4.24 ERA

Francis made his fourth straight start of allowing four or more earned runs. The veteran gave up five runs in five innings to the Red Sox in a 7-1 loss. Francis is 0-3 with an 8.27 ERA in four August starts.

Cecil allowed just two runs in seven innings during his last start against Oakland, but he suffered yet another tough loss. He is just 3-3 in his past nine outings despite posting a 2.95 ERA with seven quality starts over that span.


Morrow looks to build on last start as Royals visit

Brandon Morrow hasn't been a model of consistency this season, but the Blue Jays hope their right-hander can string together a second straight sterling start when he takes to the hill Tuesday against the Royals.

Morrow struck out a season-high 12 in just six innings of a 5-1 victory against the Mariners on Wednesday.

"Morrow was good," Seattle skipper Eric Wedge said. "He had four pitches working and had a live fastball. It was jumping on us a little bit."

Morrow admitted after the outing that he had an extra spike in adrenaline and incentive in facing his former team. Will he have the same motivation pitching against the Royals, the bottom-dwellers of the American League Central?

Kansas City is 19-39 on the road and its 10-game trip commences with Tuesday's series opener at Toronto. Manager Ned Yost said the Royals aren't the only team scuffling away from home.

"It's not just us," Yost said. "Look at a lot of other teams and see how many teams are playing .500 or better on the road. I guarantee at least half of them aren't. We went through this in Milwaukee. We could never figure out why we were 30 games over .500 at home and 20 under on the road."

Yost said the disparity between home and road splits -- the Royals are 33-37 at home -- could result from the spacious Kaufmann Stadium better suiting the team's pitching staff.

"For us, this park plays better for our pitching staff than a smaller park," Yost said. "We've got more room to make mistakes. Young pitchers at times battle our command; this place allows us to run down more of those mistakes, where other parks aren't so forgiving."

Royals: Chen goes for fourth straight win
Bruce Chen (8-5, 4.17) will man the mound for the Royals on Tuesday. The southpaw is riding a three-game win streak. In 12 career outings (seven starts) against the Blue Jays, he's 3-2 with a 2.78 ERA, including 3-1 with a 3.16 ERA in seven appearances at Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays: Lind targets Tuesday return
Toronto hopes to have first baseman Adam Lind back in the lineup Tuesday. Lind missed Sunday's game after he was struck on the wrist by a pitch during the first inning of Saturday's contest. X-ray results on his wrist came back negative. Lind took batting practice Sunday morning.

"He still feels it on some swings," manager John Farrell said. "With that still being present, we backed him out to give him the day. Hopefully by Tuesday, he's ready to go."

Worth noting
Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar received the day off Sunday. He is hitting .069 (2-for-29) with 10 strikeouts over his last seven games. Royals rookie third baseman Mike Moustakas is hitting .500 (8-for-16) over his last five games, raising his average from a season-low .182 to .206.

well we know what are top three can do so we'll get a better idea of what we have in the young spanish duo against division rivals. good audition starts to know what we have for next year. that works out well for us in my eyes. you want to test them against good competition not cream puff lineups.

looks like a sweep ... i think the hitters find their stroke back at the plate since they're coming back home because this last series our offence was horrible last three games just 2 runs in 27 innings

question for those who know - is it pretty easy to cheat yourself into half decent seats? from watching over the years... the rogers centre isn't jam packed. could i buy tickets for ****** seats and sit somewhere else without getting my tickets checked?

First and third base sides in the outfield are never filled unless its a divisional game ( maybe). Just go to your 500 seat for a few innings to scope out a good spot.

I think the exact same team with a better pen is currently 70-57. Not amazing, but not hopeless either. Fix the pen, fix a few other minor holes and let everyone develop and we're right in the playoff mix. Hell we could be winning a world series next year if they add another playoff spot.

We really should have torn up the second half of the schedule. The first half we apparently had one of the worst schedules in the majors, facing the strongest teams. Now I see us facing scrub-squads week in and week out and we are barely getting by. Does Bautista and Lind slumping really cost us that much? Or did losing Frasor and Rzep really cost us that much?

Billyen

I don't understand the whole protection thing. How was Beede protected if he was picked 21st?

Next years draft, not this one. (nothing to do with Beede except we get the 22nd pick/1st round no matter what.)

If we come in under 16th. Our 1st round pick is protected if we go after a big FA. If we come in 16th or higher. We lose our 2012 first round pick.

I'd hate to lose that pick becuase we won 3 extra games this year.

Last year we went from 18th to 21st just by winning 3 more "meaningless" games last year.

This becomes a big issue if AA decides to become a buyer. Losing 10 games in a row could be the best thing for this team...long term.

Yep. We only have the 12 games (vs Boston and the Spankees) in Sept to honorably field a competitive team. Hopefully with all the other games we play the kids that we call up. This winning as much as possible to carry momentum over to next year stuff is crap.

I would field those who are/will be here next year...It would be good to give these younger players some experience against a Yankee and Red Sox team that probably wont try once they clinch their playoff spots.

You have to field your best team in these series because the RedSox and Spankees WILL be trying to win. The winner will probably play Detroit, the loser Texas.

Can only hope he can? If not we end up going into 2012 with no 2nd baseman.

Does anyone think this might have had something to do with Hech's recent success in AAA. Get rid of the do we or don't we give Hill 2 years, and see how Hech does in Sept. when I imagine he will be here. Just saying. Seems coincidental to me?

My GUESS, yes its a guess, is that JP Arencibia will get the odd start as a DH, or maybe Jose Molina will DH here and there. Its hard to put a catcher as a DH because if the backup gets hurt while he is catching and the DH has to catch, the pitcher HAS TO BAT. Now that there are 3 catcher, you dont have to worry as much.

he said the only reason it was Jeroloman who got the call is because he didn't wanna take playing time away from any of our high ceiling prospects. He is at best a back up major league catcher.

It would be close mainly cause Jose and Esco are so good, but Braun, Hart, and Weekes still get on base a bit more than Jose, Esco, Thames/Patterson do. Also its much easier to hit in the NL Central than the AL East. Shaun Marcum is like a top 5 pitcher in the NL Central, he wouldn't even crack top 10 in the AL East.

We were talking this year. Patterson batted 2nd the majority of the time and his OBP was sub .300. We didn't have Rasmus till like a month ago. My point was RBI's is a useless stat, its all circumstance. It tells you more about how good the players teammates are then how good the actual player is.

I hope Molina isn't here next year, He doesn't call good games, he isn't good defensively, and he has to be the worst baserunner in the league.

seriously if boston can trade for agon and throw $ at crawford why can't we do the same 4 fielder and votto?

We can but we won't. AA would never go for two first basemen. I'd much rather see one of those two (Votto preferably) and then a Number 1 starter.
