Baseball pop quiz – it’s time for You Be The Manager. The situation: it’s the bottom of the tenth, and your leadoff hitter gets on base. Do you:

(a) Bunt the runner over to second;
(b) Have the runner steal second;
(c) Ask your #2 hitter to hit a walk-off two-run home run.

The correct answer is (c) – and that’s what the Jays did tonight, coming back from a 5-0 deficit to win 7-6 in 10.

If you’re watching the Jays on TV, take a look at the bench in the front of the Jays’ dugout. This bench is apparently reserved exclusively for starting pitchers, with John McDonald given honorary starting pitcher status. Tonight, the starters cut out little stick figures and put Jose Bautista’s and Brandon Morrow’s heads on them, since neither is with the team at the moment. (Bautista is away for a family matter, and Morrow is on rehab.) It was silly but fun.

It’s worth remembering that no team is as good as it appears to be when it’s going well, but this is a heck of a start. This fan is very happy.

I found two interesting links today. The first is yet another reason not to give Stephen Harper the majority he craves, and the second is called How To Steal Like An Artist (And 9 Other Things Nobody Told Me). This last inspired me to get back to doing something with Photoshop for the first time in ages.
