Opposing scouts say that the Blue Jays continue to call on the availability of starting pitching.

Maybe the hunt for help is being conducted in the wrong search area.

Wouldnt a bat go good now?

Just one.

The Baltimore Orioles edged Toronto 2-1 in 12 innings, wasting fine outings by Drew Hutchison and Todd Redmond on Saturday night before 30,446 fans at Camden Yards. The Jays won the opener on two unearned runs.

Down to their last strike, Colby Rasmus hit a 1-2 pitch to centre off Baltimore closer Tommy Hunter for his 100th career homer.

Steve Lombardozzi tripled with one out in the 12th and scored on a David Lough single.

Where would this team be without Melky Cabrera?
