Things will get much tougher for the Toronto Blue Jays after they wrap up their three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, with the National League-leading Philadelphia Phillies the next team that will make the trip to the Rogers Centre for a three-game set this weekend. Blue Jays’ fans didn’t get the chance to see Cy Young award winner and former staff ace Roy Halladay a year ago when the G-20 summit forced the MLB betting league to cancel a series between these teams in Toronto, but he is scheduled to make his first start in the city as a member of the opposition against Zach Stewart on Saturday.

While the Blue Jays don’t have any pitcher currently on their roster that is on par with Halladay, they should hold the edge in a pitching matchup between Kyle Kendrick and ace Ricky Romero in the Friday matinee that will open the series. Kendrick has managed to clinch just a single win in his past five appearances despite a relatively steady 3.23 ERA, and he will be in tough to get a win here against a determined Romero. When Halladay left town it was the 26-year old Romero that took over as the team’s ace, and with all the buzz and anticipation around the series the Toronto starter will look to bring his best stuff and start the series off on a high note.

It will be interesting to see how Halladay is received by the Toronto crowd, as the betting money says that he should get a standing ovation and rousing applause for all that he did for the organization during his time here before making the move to Philadelphia a year ago. Halladay was the city’s biggest athlete and most recognizable name before he left, and what he has done since has given him that same status in the Phillies’ organization. The 34-year old veteran earned Cy Young award honors in his first year with Philadelphia, and is on pace for another with a 10-3 record and 2.40 ERA. He should have no problem reminding Toronto fans of just how good he is in a Saturday matinee that should be one of the most watched games of the year north of the border.

It won’t get any easier for the Blue Jays after Halladay leaves the mound on Saturday, with star pitcher Cliff Lee set to get the call against Jo Jo Reyes on Sunday. For as good as Reyes has been with the Blue Jays through his last couple of sports betting bonus starts, Lee has been better registering four straight wins, including consecutive complete-game shutout efforts against the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals to prove he is still at the top of his game.
