Dallas Ain't a Woman To Help You Get Your Feet on the Ground: Game Thread, Jays at Rangers

New, comments

Hi everyone. Game one of this Jays-Rangers series looked like it might jump start the Jays and let them get their feet on the ground, but after dropping twin 5-2 games of yesterday's doubleheader, that's clearly not the case. The Jays can salvage a split with the win tonight.

So, Jose Bautista is playing centre field. And...yeah.

Scott Richmond pitches for the Jays and can put the cap on a nice season with a successful September. But if he keeps pitching as he has been going, he could make what has really been a very nice year look ugly. Tommy Hunter, who is big and righthanded, pitches for Texas.

Today's thread comes from the hard-to-find song "Dallas" (at least I think that's the title) by the 10,000 Maniacs. Somewhere along the line I picked up an import or bootleg version with David Byrne, and it's pretty cool.
