Jeff Niemann..........Brandon Morrow
2-3, 3.48 ERA............4-1, 2.27 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tb.gif
Niemann had a solid outing Wednesday night against the Yankees, allowing one run on six hits while walking one and striking out five en route a no-decision. He is 4-4 with a 5.11 ERA in 12 career starts against the Blue Jays.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Morrow enters his next outing having won four consecutive starts. He is 4-0 with a 0.65 ERA over that span and struck out a season-high 10 batters during his last outing. But Morrow did allow six runs in his only start versus Tampa Bay this year.

David Price.............Henderson Alvarez
5-2, 2.98 ERA.................3-2, 2.61 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tb.gif
Price lost for the second time this season after allowing five earned runs on 11 hits against the Yankees on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium. Price has done well against the Blue Jays, posting a 10-2 record with a 2.13 ERA in 13 career starts.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Alvarez was effective through seven innings against the Twins on Thursday, relying on a sinker to get three double plays. He gave up two runs, one earned, walked three and struck out two.




Niemann, Morrow locked in going into opener

Jeff Niemann and Brandon Morrow are right where they want to be heading into Monday's series opener between the Rays and Blue Jays.

Niemann, with a 2-3 record and 3.48 ERA, is coming off his best start of the season. Morrow, meanwhile, has won four straight starts with a 0.65 ERA, 30 strikeouts and a shutout during that span. Both will look to keep the momentum in their favor at Rogers Centre on Monday night.

Morrow wasn't even at his best Wednesday against the A's, lacking his usual slider, but he commanded his fastball well enough on both sides of the plate that he racked up a season-high 10 strikeouts in six innings.

He hasn't lost since April 18, when the Rays roughed him up for six runs over six innings. That loss, in which he gave up three homers at Tropicana Field, is really the only bad outing the right-hander has had so far this season.

"It was a matter of keeping the ball down," Morrow said Wednesday. "All my misses were down or off the plate. I didn't have a very good slider and that probably played into it today, as far as getting deeper into counts when I might have been able to put some guys away."

Niemann, on the other hand, had everything working in his last start -- a no-decision against the Yankees in which he gave up one run on six hits and a walk while striking out five over seven innings.

The big right-hander thought he threw quality pitches and managed to stay around the strike zone throughout the game, mixing in his cutter and two-seam fastball with possibly the best fastball command he's had this season.

"It was a pretty good day for that," Niemann said. "That was my best one of the year so far. Hopefully we can build up that momentum and keep it going in the next one."

Rays: Racking up errors
The Rays committed five errors Saturday night, one by five different players for the first time in franchise history, and recorded two more in Sunday's 9-8 win over the Orioles. Tampa Bay has been among the Majors' leaders in errors this season with 30. Last year, the Rays committed a Major League-low 73 errors.

Infielder Sean Rodriguez was out of Sunday's starting lineup due to soreness on the left side of his chest but entered the game in the seventh inning as a defensive replacement at third base. He was unable to extend his 10-game hitting streak, however, striking out in the ninth inning.

Blue Jays: Lind hoping to break out of slump
Adam Lind was out of the starting lineup Sunday and flied out in a big pinch-hit opportunity in the ninth inning, but he will head into this series against the Rays believing he's ready to turn it around. Lind averaged 28 homers, 91 RBIs and a .798 OPS the last three seasons, but he's hitting just .189 with three homers and 11 RBIs this year.

"I'm feeling better than I was a week ago," Lind said. "I know it's a process and hopefully the process is nearing an end.

"I changed a few things at the beginning of this road trip, from walking to trying to be more aggressive," he added. "It's sort of like having Spring Training to figure it out, but having to do it in the middle of the season. But I'm feeling good right now."

Worth noting
The Rays are a Major League-best 13-3 at home this season, but just 8-11 on the road.

We just went .500 against a struggling underperforming angels teamm, a mediocre at best A's and a horrible Twins team

i dont like our chances. With the dome open tommrow i can see a lot of morrows pitches flying out, and Price ususally dominates us.

And i'm also astonished how the mighty have fallen. Aaron Hill, Adam Lind, Brett Cecil who else ?

If they're going to sweep a 2 game series, Morrow and Alvarez are currently the best bet to do it.

Jays are returning from a west coast trip and usually teams returning from long west trips struggle in their first game back. So tonight is a tough game for them. And Price usually pitches well against us. Unless our bats wake up, I can see us losing both games to the Rays. I hope we win them both though:)

This series depends on which Brandon Morrow shows up tonight, I voted series split thinking that he will continue his tear. Tomorrows game should be interesting, but Price is a Blue Jay killer, I figure thats the game we are going to lose.

Yes! If they get shut out they won't score another run the rest of the season too.

Hard to get worked up about this. I don't really buy the whole pitcher/batter matchup stats but 32 AB's is more than most of these situations and it's not as if EE/Thames are lighting it up lately. I don't agree with the move but it's probably worth a shot, as long as Lind's back on the bench tomorrow and back at the bottom of the lineup against the next RHP I'm fine.

Unfortunately, I think the Jays lose 12 of the next 19 vs Rays, Yanks, Rangers, Orioles, Mets and Bosox.

Glaring holes not addressed in the off season and we are out of it by the beginning of June...as usual.

Hope I'm wrong.

This is not nearly the worst Jays offense I have seen at all.

And to be honest, if you want to be the instant reaction of anger all the time in a game where over half the time hitter's fail to get on base, I suggest you do it outloud or somewhere else. No one appreciates these comments all the time. The occasional frustration makes sense, but your just way too extreme.

Exactly, for all the *****ing people do, this offense has been pretty good overall.

This has been partly due to the clutch/lucky hitting with guys on base

I know many of us Jays fans didn't want to spend the mega bucks on guys like Wilson, Pujols and Fielder...but a guy like Fielder would look pretty good in this lineup right now...heck, Glen Allen Hill would look pretty darn good with this team!

At this point, even though it's still early, I can't see this team winning more than 80 games...the offense seems to be able to score runs, but not when they count...brutal bullpen, Jose looks to be a two year wonder, zero offensive help in the minors (other than Snider, but will he ever get the chance?), poor coaching from Farrell and pitching coach (if it was 2 or 3 guys walking, then it's on the pitchers...when it's the entire rotation issuing 5-7 walks/game...its on the coaching staff).
