The Blue Jays are off to a 27-15 start and find themselves atop the AL East. With the exception of the last place Baltimore Orioles, it's as if the division is flipped upside down. The heavily favored (and heavily pocketed) Red Sox and Yankees find themselves 2.5 and 3.5 games back respectively and last year's AL champs, the Rays are 6.5 behind. With Vernon Wells (.253/5/21) and Alex Rios (.264/5/21) slumping to start the season, names like Aaron Hill (.343/11/34), Adam Lind (.314/7/35), and Rod Barajas (.313/3/22) have stepped up to lead the Major's highest rated offense. Not only has their hitting caught the eye of everyone who follows baseball closely, their pitching staff is also ranked third best in the majors behind veteran Roy Halladay (8-1, 2.78 ERA).

For anyone who still views this page, or has randomly found it on the internet, please hear me out. I am planning on applying to work for the student-run newspaper here at Iowa State University, "The Daily." Although I have recently rejuvinated my passion for writing on here, I don't think I will get around to it until school is over on May 8th. At that point I will have a lot of down time while working in the clubhouse at the Coon Rapids golf course. I can't wait to restart the site and I hope everyone who reads this will hear this message. MAY 8th! I can almost smell the freshly mowed grass and peanuts at the ballpark. God bless and I will post again in May!
