Much like the testosterone supercharged males who counted down the days to the Olsen twins' 18th birthday, we've been eagerly anticipating the return of Travis Snider.

Now, the time has finally come for the "Big White Pasty Hope" (h/t Tao of Stieb) to make his way to Toronto.

Today, Snider was called up and will suit up for tonight's game. He will play in right field against the Red Sox

But in a very perplexing move, the Blue Jays decided to demote Joe Inglett.

It's perplexing because he's hit .289 since returning from his first stint in Las Vegas. On the other hand, Kevin Millar has somehow survived being sent down to Triple A, even though he is hitting .182 over that same period, and just .231 on the year.

The justification behind leaving Millar on the roster doesn't make sense defensively either, because if the Jays continue to platoon at first base, then Randy Ruiz would fit in nicely, thus eliminating the need for Millar.

Regardless, we're glad to see Travis Snider back in a Blue Jays uniform, and I hope tonight is a very successful homecoming party for him.
