    Zimmerman took a perfect game into the 6th Game Recap | Box Score For the record, while this is my second opening day in a row at the Rogers Centre, I am not a Blue Jays fan. Yes, I see more Blue Jays games than any other team, but what I am is a fan…

    Game Recap  | Box Score James McCann Bobblehead Day Getting to the game early to secure a Bobblehead, I enjoyed a 30-minute, pre-game Q&A with John Hiller.
