Their roster was complete, with all hands on deck and the best possible lineup they could have this season. Still, the Red Sox could only manage 4 hits against the Jays rookie Lefty and scored only 1 run to become the first team that Marc Rzepczynski has ever won against in MLB. The fact that he threw so well bodes well for an endless stream of future divisional match ups and he proved once again that he belongs in the rotation for the long term. Over 3 starts, ALL against divisional rivals, he has a 2.50 ERA, 18 IP (avg 6 per start), 16 Ks, 11 HA, 11 BB. His next start should be versus Tampa Bay this upcoming Friday and I look forward to seeing if he can keep it going.
Rolen and Overbay continued to heighten their trade values by getting 2 hits a piece, and Lind continued to make himself untouchable by knocking his 20th HR of season. If he continues on this pace, Lind will become the first Jays in quite a while to hit 35 Hrs and knock in over 100 RBI while hitting above .300. Wells sat out last night's game, and let's hope that it means a trade is imminent so that the trade rumors and fan backlash can stop getting worse.
