Go Time: Not All Bad
If only Joe Saunders pitched every night. Serves him right for not being on the Orioles anymore. That's how #magic works, idiot.
A couple of important things here today. For starters, and pardon that pun, Josh Johnson is probably out until late May, which sounds like it's farther away than it really is. Jon Morosi tells us that Johnson will likely miss the next three weeks or so. That sucks, right?
Sam Miller for Baseball Prospectus give the Jays (and others, but who cares?) a non-zero chance at the playoffs, using the 2012 playoff teams as his example. Certainly makes some sense, but yeesh. "Non-zero" wasn't what we were hoping for a month ago.
Blanco tonight, instead of JP, to catch Buehrle. Let's see if he can figure that one out. On the bright side, Ben Zobrist gets a night off.
[Update-- Oh. Well now I feel bad. Zo is missing tonight's game due to a death in the family.]
