I think the Jays are going to feast on pitching that isn't pretty solid to great, but they are extremely beatable because of holes in their lineup and pitching staff (i.e., they're the Yankees?). Also, they aren't going to have a team batting average of .330 all year, or whatever it is, so they're going to come down a little bit and settle in where they belong: below the RS, in third place. ;-)

I neither agree nor disagree with your assessment of this game as a watershed- yes, it will probably boost the Jays' confidence against us, and I don't have very high hopes for the May series at Fenway. On the other hand, there are many turning points to a season: if you look back at '04, the Jeter-faceplants-into-the-stands-while-Nomar-sits-on-the-bench-with-a-poo-face game was probably a turning point too. Then the Fight Game happened, and the Big Trade, and the Dave Roberts Steal... I probably don't need to remind you how that all worked out.

It's games like today's that worry me. I was driving around for most of it, listening to WEEI, and was tempted to put out cigarettes in my ears to stop the pain (TM Beth but paraphrased by me). We need a real fifth starter or 20% of our games this year will give me a bleeding ulcer. So I'll hop on the bandwagon for Chucky in the rotation and Foulke closing games again.
