Game time is 7:07 on CSN and RSN.
Cabrera was good last time out and got no help, plus he got the job from that fan that caused a home run. I'd almost forgotten about that guy.
This will be Pete Walker's first start of the season after appearing in relief 16 times. He's pitched 36.1 innings with a 1.24/1.13/.217 line, 18 strikeouts to 13 walks. He's even got two saves.
Walker, 36, has become a moderately useful swingman for the Jays the last three seasons after a long, long time in obscurity dealing with cups of coffee. Before 2002, Walker pitched in just 20 major league games, 13 of which came with the Mets in 1995. It's been a long, strange trip for Pete Walker. He's also a career 0-for-1 hitter.
Boy would a win feel good today.
