First... Happy Mother's Day to Karen and to all of the women in your lives!
Borrowed from the @BlueJays twitter feed.  Thanks.


Well, it didn't quite go our way in yesterday's game and David Price wasn't quite as shitacular as he had been lately.  One bad inning did in Estrada and the rest is history.

Joe Biagini makes his first start since being called up to take Marcus Stroman's spot after the latter was placed on the DL with a severe case of right-arm shittiness.

Today is the rubber match of the 3-game series.  Let's win it for your mothers, Jays!  Can Kevin Pillar repeat his walk-off from last year's Mother's Day game?

Oh, and we have a Roof Report for today's game:


Today's Mother's Day promo at the Rogers Centre is a .... Kevin Pillar caped jersey?  I can just see mothers lining up specifically to nab this, sure.  Of more interest to mothers attending the game, the 200 level Flight Deck will be transformed into an oasis dedicated to pampering moms.  Some pics from previous years on Mother's Day:

In other news...

Jose Bautista hit his first HR as a Baaaarve last night.  Good to get that out of the way.
