It's been 15 years since I followed the Jays this closely. I never stopped rooting for my team, and certainly never stopped watching the odd game, but now I'm back to boxscore scoping and game day anticipation. Not only are we leading the league, but we're doing it with Roy and four guys you don't know.
That Roy is Roy Halladay, the second best starting pitcher this franchise has ever seen. You have to love Halladay who battles through and wins, even when he doesn't have his best stuff. He's everything that's right with this game, but he can't pitch every day. Your major league leading Jays have four other starters, and I'll bet you don't know any of 'em.
There's David Purcey, Brian Burres, Scott Richmond, and Brian Tallet. Jays fans might know Richmond because he's Canadian and Tallet from the bullpen, but there's no denying this is a no-name foursome and Cito's making magic with very little.
It's Roy and four guys you don't know. Never doubt The Cito.
