Roy Halladay is going for his 8th win today against the Chicago White Sox

Scouting Report:
White Sox: For the fourth time in seven trips to the mound, Floyd failed to post a coveted quality start. Monday's start against the Indians was actually well below the quality cut-off, as the right-hander gave up eight runs on 11 hits over five-plus innings, including two batters faced in the sixth. Floyd has a 0-2 record with a 9.74 ERA in his past four starts and has allowed more double-digit-hit games this season (two) then he did in all of 2008. Floyd already has a 0-1 record with a 10.38 ERA against the Blue Jays this year and stands at 0-2 lifetime against the Blue Jays. But Floyd has never worked at Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays: Halladay threw his first complete game of the year against the Yankees at Rogers Centre on Tuesday. He gave up one run on five hits -- matching his lowest total this season -- and struck out five. For the third time in his eight starts this year, he did not walk a single batter. He got 16 outs via ground ball, and gave up only two extra base hits, both doubles.

Scouting Report:

Twins: Slowey had to labor a bit through his last outing against the Tigers, throwing 98 pitches in six innings while allowing just one run. He allowed the leadoff hitter to reach base in five of his six innings, which included Jeff Larish'’s solo home run to start the sixth. The home run was the lone run that Slowey allowed in his outing. He scattered eight hits to the Tigers and also issued two walks in the contest, equaling his total for the season. Slowey next will face the Yankees. He is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA in three career starts vs. New York.

Yankees: Burnett took his first loss of the season on Tuesday, facing the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. He gave up five runs on seven hits and lasted 7 2/3 innings. He allowed four walks while striking out three. Of the 110 pitches he threw, 66 were strikes. Burnett has not faced the Twins this year and owns a 1-1 record in four career starts against them, putting up an ERA of 4.21 in 25 2/3 innings.


I am going to be posting some of the pictures from the games I was at so check back later. If you're in Toronto, enjoy that game! I wish I could watch the Jays game on tv. That link I was using for the us steam doesnt seem to be working anymore.

Awesome scouting reports for the pitchers in both games.

Halladay has been incredible. Jays have to feel confident when he pitches.

AJ has been inconsistent for the Yankees. I suppose that shouldn't be a surprise since that's how he's been his whole career, but some consistency would be nice.

Yankees have looked better as of late and hopefully it continues.

Christina, there is a new password for Usstream BTW:teddybear82 that you can use.

Doc is a pitcher that fans of other teams admire. He pitches so damn well, is durable, and doesn't headhunt and act like a piece of garbage like Beckett or Pedro either.

The problem with Aj is that he has never been that consistenet as a pitcher. I was shocked that the Yanks didn't go after Derek Lowe instead, because DL is such a great big game pitcher. Quite frankly, they were foolishly beguiled by AJ's appearances against them last year. Cashman is a terrible evaluators of pitching, examples: Weaver, Igawa, Pavano, Wright, Vazquez , Kevin Brown and the list goes on and on. AJ has tremendous stuff(arguably top 3 in the game) BUT his makeup is not top notch. I think the Yanks gave him too much money and too many years ......
