It my distinct honour to be reporting to you from Canada. Saw my first big league game here, back when it was the Skydome. Sat in the right or left field nosebleeds for Orioles-Jays. I remember looking straight down at the top of Joe Orsalak’s head. Then a kid sitting behind us had too many snacks and puked on my mom. That got us moved to a seat right behind the plate, compliments of the Jays. Ah, memories.
No official word on Antonio Bastardo yet, but a team source tells me he will see team physician Michael Ciccotti within the next few days.
Jimmy Rollins is out of the lineup tonight again, and Charlie Manuel indicated that the, um, mental break could last longer than the two days initially planned. He is taking it day-by-day.
