England's first innings ends quite a bit better than Australia's. However, since the latter's first innings was so horrible, the former's wasn't all that great either. As Australia begins their second innings, they trail by a measly 140 runs.

So Toronto pushes the last of their remaining chips into the pot by picking up David Price from the Tigers for Daniel Norris and another prospect (Anthony Alford is what I've read).

Late Edit:
It's Norris, Boyd, and Labourt.

If you are going to go for it, you might as well go all in.

If they don't sign Price to an extension, this will be a pricey rental.
If they make the playoffs (and I mean more than one-and-done wild card), then I still think it might be worth it. It's been over 20 years...

I think that for some people, that Series still seems like it was yesterday.

(Caution, high degree of slurrage).

Tell me that the fix is in, and we'll win the next Test, and it will be 2-2 going into the final one.

Winner takes all, and "greatest series ever".
