DeRosa's playing 3rd tomorrow right? Is he any good defensively? Cuz Izturis has struggled, to say the least

an upgrade that's for sure. I would also like Izturis to play 2nd.

Some of the guys are still working with Murphy.

Agreed with the defense aspect. Izturis, Bonifacio and JP have all been sub-par defensively. That Bourne double doesn't happen with Lawrie at the bag.

As for hitting, it'll take some time. Given the fact that most of our top hitters weren't even here due to WBC, Mottola really didn't have an opporunity to work with them. I think the new season, and all the hype surrounding the team might be causing some early nervers too. We'll be able to get a better evaluation next series, when we're away from home IMO.

They're still at home next series (BOS).

Also I'm not sure but I hope stamina comes into play for Myers. IIRC he wasn't a starting pitcher last season so the jays just gotta be patient and make him throw a lot.

Bisons opener.

Bisons kicking ass early on. Gose 2/2, 1RBI. Moises Sierra has a canon of an arm too.

Go Buffalo.

Much more exciting game than Jays first two.

So what are you suggesting? We let the Bison's come up here and finish off this home stand? The entire season?

I do notice they aren't trying to swing for the fences. Seems to work quite well...just saying. 5-1 Bisons.

you can get more of a running game going in the 1st inning with:
i was also thinking into the near future when gose is here
bautista encarnacion still get huge numbers 4-5

reyes
bonifacio

lind
lawrie
arencebia
gose
It'd definitely be a great lineup if Bonifacio could get on base at a solid clip. Personally, I like the lineup Gibbons has been rolling with, even though they've been off to a slow start. That Gose lineup sure is intriguing. I'd almost rather Gose and Bonifacio if Gose is called up from Buffalo hitting everything.

Most likely. He'll platoon the DH position with Lind I'd imagine since Davis hits lefties relatively well compared to Lind.

Davis friday makes sense at either DH or CF since doubront is a lefty. Davis on saturday makes less sense with the righty Lackey on the mound

He was better than his number show. Gave up a couple mis-hit singles, and some hits due to **** defence. Indians basically didn't make good contact.
