Gaston today confirmed that, win or lose tonight to the Chicago White Sox, he has decided that pitchers Roy Halladay, A.J. Burnett and Jesse Litsch will all be pressed into service for the upcoming weekend set in Boston on just three days rest instead of the normal five.Their chances? Pretty damn poor, of course. But wouldn't it jazz things up for all of us non-partisans out here for Toronto to sweep Boston this weekend?
The Blue Jays are in dire straights when it comes to trying to make the playoffs, trailing the Red Sox by seven games in the American League wild card standing with 17 games left to play.But of those 17 games, seven are against the Red Sox -- four this weekend at Fenway and three more in Toronto next weekend.
