Pregame concerns: I'm going to the game tonight, so the Blue Jays' lineup isn't available yet. ... Betemit has no business batting sixth. The only problem is that Cano, Molina or Cabrera don't, either. ... Jorge Posada is at the Stadium, but it is not known if he is being made active for tonight's game. He will almost certainly be in the lineup tomorrow night. ... Litsch is 1-0 with a 1.17 ERA ERA in one career start at the Stadium. That equates to one earned run in 7 2/3 innings.
