Jays’ fun ride in the Bronx drawing to a close…

Jorge Posada and his famous nose

…and thankfully, I might add. After three straight losses, including an ugly 10-8 collapse yesterday, the Jays finish their four-game set with the Yankees this afternoon in the House That Steinbrenner Built. The invicible Ricky Romero goes to the hill for Toronto, facing washed-up veteran Andrew Pettitte. I’m calling a win, but then again, I’m a major homer.

After listlessly falling 4-2 on Friday to some overpaid meanie, the Jays actually gave themselves a chance to win the past two, with Roy Halladay and friends letting one get away Saturday and Brett Cecil & co. blowing a four-run lead yesterday despite counterpart Joba Chamberlain looking shakier than he did when he picked up his DUI. Ugly, ugly stuff.

On a positive note, Halladay and Aaron Hill were named American League All-Stars yesterday, Halladay’s sixth such honor and Hill’s first. Adam Lind is one of five players up for the final roster spot, which fans have the chance to vote for. Ian Kinsler, Chone Figgins, Brandon Inge and Carlos Pena are also up for the position. Let’s see what happens!
