Making his case

No real news to report, other than the fact that the Jays offense has been non-existant to date. Stewart seems to be just as ineffective at the plate as Johnson, although Johnson is hitting 250, which probably puts him among the team leaders in BA at this point...

Southpaw favourite for the 5th spot, Casey Janssen put on a show last night. 2 IP, 2 H, 2 K, 0 BB. Also, when I was listening on the radio Janssen's ability to hold the runner came in handy. He's always had a terrific pickoff move, and he's extremely quick to the plate. On an attempted hit and run, the batter missed the pitch, and Ruggiano was thrown out easily by Barajas. It's the little things like this that make him so much more valuable in a starting role.

McGowan also had a solid outing, going 2 IP, allowing 2 hits but no K or BB. Beyond that, the most important part is both Dusty & Janssen threw a ton of strikes.

Spring Training game is on CITY TV @ 12:30 I believe, so I expect that all 3 of you who read this (the three being myself, will & johnny, of course :p) to watch it, and enjoy it.

Oh right, sorry Will :(.
