You Can Never Have Enough Friends
So, Shea Hillenbrand and Frankie Catalanotto, can you be a friend and have a really big night at the plate tonight against Curt Schilling?
It would really be appreciated.

Just a couple points:
So far this year, Toronto is 9-5 against Boston this year.
Of the four pitchers going against the BoSox in the series starting tonight, the only one who's gotten clobbered has been Bush. However, most of those innings have been in Toronto. Fenway is a completely different arena...and the Sox are a completely different team when they are at home. Chacin has faced them a couple times with a good outing in Toronto and a crappy one in Fenwway (hopefully, he learned something).
Nevertheless, I think that Toronto has a good chance of taking two in this series. I don't know which two but I really believe they have a shot and hopefully Lilly can come through again dominate the Sox again this year. He's done it twice this year, if I remember correctly.

Oh, I have no doubt this will happen. Both are terrible at the plate and mediocre at best in the field - except when playing Boston or NY. Then, suddenly it's like having two ten time all stars in the middle of the Jays line up. All I can hope for is the same wonderful production from Mora, Tejada and the ever intimidating Jay Gibbons.

Oh, and ESPN is running this little poll on the baseball postseason.
Funny thing about it is that a little over 53% of people see the Red Sox winning the AL East but if you go farther down, the Yanks lead in the question for which AL team has the best chance for winning the World Series.
