Blue Jays 2, Tigers 1. Josh Towers worked into the 8th inning and allowed only 3 hits, a walk and an unearned run.
- The Yankees placed Mike Mussina and Carl Pavano on the DL. AA pitcher Chase Wright will be called up to start on Tuesday.
- Derek Jeter has committed more errors (6) than BJ Upton (5). That’s not an easy thing to do.
- Yet another big name pitcher goes to the DL in the AL East. This time it is Jays’ closer BJ Ryan.
- Selling Japanese players to the Japanese market is easy. Selling teams to Japanese baseball fans is not as easy, but that is exactly what MLB is trying to do.
- Boston is hoping that Diasuke Matsuzaka will boost local tourism.
- Willy Mo Pena is the odd man out in Boston.
- The baseball schedule features one morning tilt every season, on Patriot’s Day in Boston. Make that zero games this season as the game has been rescheduled for noon.
