Today is Thursday. It’s also March 14, 2013. The United States is taking on the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic.

That means — today — that R.A. Dickey threw to Jose Reyes (and Edwin Encarnacion) of the DR, with J.P. Arencibia catching.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the 2013 Toronto Blue Jays. They finally have an identity. They finally have a profile. They have more star representation from around the globe than the United Nations.


*Although, this is still all I think of when I hear ‘Encarnacion’.
