Well, the joke’s on the Rays.

The Blue Jays may have played like dopes in the season opener on the last day of March but April 1 -- no fools were found -- they were money.

In Monday’s depressing 9-2 pounding the Jays couldn’t pitch, hit in the clutch, and they threw the ball around in a clownish sequence that allowed Wil Myers a Little League home run on a ball that travelled 60 feet.

In Game 2, however, they reversed ship and were clicking on all cylinders.

The lone blemish was a ninth-inning challenge by manager John Gibbons, which followed a great grab-and-throw from the knees by third baseman Evan Longoria to nail Melky Cabrera. He was out all the way and the call was upheld.
