Great Game - McGowan has finally arrived!

Well the Jays sure laid a beating on the A's. Dustin McGowan was dominant in attacking hitters and ensuring that he didn't relinquish the lead.

Matt Stairs continude his great season by cracking a two-run double and a two-run homer the other way. His play has been anything short of remarkable. He also leads Vernon in Homers by 1. Not to bad for 850,000 a year.

Howie Clark is a great story - having been injured in spring training, he was released by the Padres. He called every major league team and got only one response. And it took almost a month for it to come. The Blue Jays gave him a minor league deal and he worked his way into game shape. A professional hitter, he works pitchers and puts forth a great work ethic. How can you not love a guy who makes the Major League Minimum.

You have to give the Jays Brass some credit for letting the Young Arms loose. Marcum and McGowan have been terrific - Well done JP!
