Blue Jays 6, Yankees 5 (10)

And considering that three hours ago I was furious I couldn't get the game on anywhere, my MLB a casualty of my laziness . . . all I want to say is that every year, Mariano Rivera's first blown save of the season is like the first scratch on the new car: both inevitable and devastating. Saw him vs. the Rangers Sunday and thought, "Maybe this is the season he goes 0.00." Seriously, I thought that.

Unfortunately, I saw it. Two Mariano takeaways:
-He should have attacked Bautista. He's good, but when did Mo pitch start pitching around batters, especially ex Dbacks?
-The suicide squeeze was perfectly executed, impossible to defend.

I have to admit, Mo was not at his best.
