Except to say that Shaun Marcum went 5-0 in May with each of the five wins coming after the Jays had lost.  I’ll grant you, pitchers have no control over their win-loss record, so dig these peripherals:   A WHIP of 1.026, an ERA of 1.85, a strikeout to walk ratio of 3.2:1.  That’s one solid month and again – each of the wins came after a Blue Jays’ loss.  He had one no-decision in there – and the Jays won that game, too.

Also, congrats to Vernon Wells for moving into second place on the Jays’ all-time homer list.  He broke out of a tie with Joe Carter with number 204, a sixth-inning solo shot, and trails only Carlos Delgado.  By 132.

Here’s this evening’s edition of The JaysTalk, for your listening pleasure:

Tomorrow, it’ll be Brett Cecil – having been re-spectacle-fied – taking on Chris Tillman in a battle of fantastic young pitching prospects.  We’ll have the pre-game show at 12:30 PM Eastern and Jose Bautista has already confirmed that he’ll do the pre-game interview with me.  I might bump him to Sunday, though, and talk to Marcum tomorrow.

Here’s the transcript of tonight’s edition of “Miked Up LIVE!”:

    “each of the wins came after a Blue Jays’ loss”

    Marcum had a fantastic month but I am not sure what this qualifier adds. He follows the #5 man in the rotation. He will be starting after many losses. So what?
