HalladayHOMECOMING: Roy Halladay apparently couldn't care less that he's about to step on the Blue Jays' mound for the first time wearing a different uniform. "I feel like it's any other start," Halladay told MLB.com. "It's been long enough for me where that's not really something that's in the forefront. Obviously it's the first time back, but I don't really anticipate anything different than any other road start." I'm guessing there's just a little bit of an emotional twinge in Halladay, but he's a robot who does nothing but get outs, so what do I know? He'll be opposed by Carlos Villanueva, an ex-Brewer who opened the year in the bullpen and impressed enough to get, and so far retain, a rotation spot. Phillies vs. Blue Jays, 1:07 p.m. ET (Watch live)

KershawWeaverBEST MATCHUP: What a fantastic matchup slated for the Freeway Series in a rematch of a battle this past Sunday, when Kershaw outdueled Weaver with a six-hitter. Weaver was in line for his 10th win before L.A. rallied off closer Jordan Walden, but Kershaw's been the better pitcher this year. That may sound like heresey given Kershaw has a 2.93 ERA and Weaver 1.97, but if there's one thing you should learn from reading these pages, it's that ERA doesn't mean everything. Kershaw's peripherals are stronger than Weavers and he'll be going after his third straight complete game, which no Dodger has achieved in the last 11 years. Dodgers vs. Angels, 9:05 p.m. ET (Watch live)

YankeesMetsSUBWAY BATTLE: The Yankees are trying to win the division and would love to buffer their lead over the Red Sox, currently at an all-too-tenuous 2 1/2 games. The Mets, meanwhile, would love to avoid dipping under .500 for the first time since last Saturday. The Mets are still lingering on the fringes of the wild card race, plus boast perhaps the most exciting player in the game today with Jose Reyes. The Yanks will have Bartolo Colon coming off the DL to continue his bizarrely successful year. Likewise, the Metropolitans will trot out Dillon Gee, also experiencing unforeseen success. Yankees vs. Mets, 4:10 p.m. ET (Watch live)

Wasn't this return supposed to be last year, but the series was moved to Philly because of a political pow-wow in Toronto?

Another year has passed...Doubt it will have the same impact, but I'll be watching

It's a great weekend for baseball. I am excited to see Roy's return to T.O. He'll dominate.
