Really sorry guys, running late today with a lot of family things going on this weekend. Quick thread going up.

The Jays are looking to bounce back from the loss last night. Last nights game was tough to watch, even more so in person I imagine. Tom mentioned he was at the park for basically 8 hours yesterday.... now that is dedication.

Starting for the Twins is former Blue Jays pitcher PJ Walters. Wait former Jay? Yep, P.J threw one inning for the Jays last year on July 28th against the Orioles. Walters was one of the 3 other players that came back to Toronto in the Colby Rasmus swap. This is PJ first start on the year and 4th in his career. Come on Jays!

Reminder a few ground rules for the gamethreads that are in effect.

1. Please no Gifs or images during the game threads. The threads go by quick and with a lot of people tend to slow down for people. We understand it isn't as bad for people already in the thread but anyone new coming in has a nightmare of a time loading mutliple images. --- As a side note as the game end we will lift the ban and you can go as crazy as you like.

2. Don't argue with any of the moderators. Think of it like arguing balls and strikes, you can get tossed. If you have a problem with the rules feel free to e-mail either Tom or myself (our e-mail is at the bottom of the page). Rules link

3. No linking to any illegal streams
