Toronto at Cleveland, 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Paul Byrd (8-6, 4.72 ERA)
Toronto: AJ Burnett (6-5, 4.27 ERA)

One reason I dislike Interleague play is that former AL East rivals have become almost novelties on the schedule. I understand the need to play teams in your own division more often, but there has to be some kind of middle ground.

Contract clause files:

In addition to a $55M salary, AJ Burnett's contract includes eight round-trip limosine trips per season for his wife. The Burnetts live in Maryland.
