Francisco Liriano (LHP 2-2 3.97 25K) v. Chris Archer (RHP 2-1 3.43 37K)

Anybody own a raft or dinghy I can borrow? Yeeesh. Poor Ottawa.

All the best to everyone in Eastern Canada affected by this terrible flooding.

Of Note: Toronto claimed RP Neil Ramirez (B-REF) off waivers yesterday; otherwise, there is little to report. Still no word on SP Marcus Stroman. Fingers crossed. Someone -- Mark Shapiro? -- hinted earlier this week they expect the first of "The Walking Dead" to return beginning mid-May or so which...well, at least it's something to look forward to -- unlike, say, a weekend series at The Trop. Ugh.

Time to flip the script, lads. Give 'em beans.
