Thank you, Jake McGee, for the fibre optic ERA that you gave me.

Bonifacio starting at 2B, batting 9th, which, aside from the decrease in PA, appears to be a pretty decent spot for fantasy purposes, with Reyes batting behind him. Nice double just now on a hit that would've been a single for probably 90% of the league; he got there with ease.

Masterson has gotten extremely lucky in the first 2 innings. In trouble again here in the 3rd...

LOL. Masterson is getting hit extremely hard, but Jays hit into a double play. Easily could have 4 plus runs already this evening but baseball God's aren't favoring them tonight so far.

Lind 0-2 but has only seen one empty base in two at bats. I really like this Toronto lineup. I don't think it matters where Bonifacio bats his R/RBI per AB will double from what he did in FLA.

Masterson gives up a lot of baserunners and is a heavy GB pitcher (2-1) so I'd expect to see a lot of double plays against the OBP machine that is Toronto

Also, Arencibia needs a bigger mitt for Dickey.

Arencibia has been terrible behind the plate. I'm pretty sure this is the last time for a while that we'll see him catching for Dickey. He set the single-game franchise record for passed balls in the third inning, I believe, and has since added to it (4). Also got the benefit of a few wild pitches that were probably his fault.

Not all that impressed by Dickey thus far. He seemed surprised that Cabrera's HR went out.

Ya, the last one that bounced in the dirt he sort of lazily stabbed at. he could have body blocked it and saved the WP from happening. Doug Mirabelli was especially great at stopping the low knucklers from Wakefield.

Either way, Dickey needs to iron out the kinks with someone soon.
