Up next for Tampa Bay Rays: vs. Toronto Blue Jays


vs. Blue Jays


What's new: The biggest difference with the Blue Jays is who they don't have, which is Roy Halladay. Still, they're off to a nice start, with OF Vernon Wells and SS Alex Gonzalez doing the heavy lifting. Going into Thursday's play, they led the AL in homers (23) and the majors in extra-base hits (67), though it's unlikely to last. They do have a lot of good arms in their rotation and bullpen.

Key stat: Since June 6, 2007, the Rays are 32-15 vs. the Jays, including 19-5 at home.

Connections: Jays reliever Shawn Camp is a former Ray, third-base coach Brian Butterfield is a former Eckerd College assistant.

Series history: Jays lead 103-100 overall; Rays lead 57-43 at Trop.
