The Jays take on the Mariners tonight in the first game of a three game set. This series means absolutely nothing.
Just some quick chuckling at the misfortunes of some former Blue Jays. Our beloved Coco has been deemed too terrible for the worst team in baseball, as the Astros have officially released Francisco Cordero. He was, of course, sent to Houston in the JA Happ trade.
On a similar note, Kevin Gregg has been DFA'ed by the Orioles, in order to make room on the 40-man roster for Endy Chavez. Bloltimore signed Gregg to a 2 year, $10MM contract before the beginning of last season, for some reason. Gregg has pitched to a FIP in the 5 neighborhood, walking 5.5/9IP.
Chad Jenkins will probably start on the 24th against Baltimore in the makeup game that was rained out two week ago. Shi Davidi says that he will probably stay in the rotation after that, as the Jays wind down with a 6-man rotation.
The Vancouver Canadians, the Jays' high-A affiliate, have won their championship for the second straight year. Good for them.
