It'd be a bit daunting to know back on Opening Day that we'd be fielding this kind of lineup in April -- not to mention that Beckett's not the only starter with an ERA above 5 (Lester, Lackey, and Wakefield are flying high as well.)

There's no doubt we'll recover, but enough to compete with the MFY and Tampa?

First things first. A sweep will put the Jays behind us, and us in third place.
