At Least Canada Has Universal Health Care

The Toronto Blue Jays' chances in the AL East having really taken some hits recently. They've lost Frank Thomas (by their own choosing), shortstops David Eckstein and John McDonald to injury (on the same day, no less), and now it's Vernon Wells and Jeremy Accardo. Wells has a broken wrist and will be out 6-8 weeks, while Accardo (the back-up closer) is also on the DL with right forearm tightness. The Jays do have a lot of pitching, but it's hard to win when that's all there is(especially in the East). This is, of course, great news for the Orioles, as far as potential standings go. If the O's are going to finish above last, then another team is going to have to take an unexpected fall - that may be what happens to Toronto.
