Toronto Blue Jays – Draftboard Update
The Blue Jays failed to make up any ground in the reverse standings tonight as they stubbornly rode a good performance from a suddenly very consistent Mark Buehrle to a victory over the Kansas City Royals.

Pretty much everyone else held serve, bar the San Diego Padres, who, by losing to the Dodgers, managed to leap frog both Toronto and Seattle into the eighth pick.
Long way to go though, and between the five pick, currently occupied by Minnesota, and the fourteenth, right now a Phillies selection, there is only three games in it. This could actually get rather exciting:
Tomorrow we get Jeremy Guthrie versus R.A. Dickey who rock 1.31 and 1.43 HR/9 rates respectively. Bombs away.
