So, somehow Justin Verlander's ERA against the Blue Jays as a team in his career is over 11. He hasn't faced them this year, and he won his last start against them in September of 2009. He lost the start before that, which 2009's opening day. Hopefully he'll continue the positive trend, but I figured I'd mention it since it's such a jarring statistic.

Ricky Romero seems to have skipped the sophomore slump and is having a good year. Look for Maggs and Miguel to hopefully get to him, as they are both hitting .500 with at least 5 at bats.

Oh, and Scotty's back - he's starting at third today.
