O Rejoice! Because You're Trying Your Best: GameThread for Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays, 23 May 2012, 1:10 PM EDT

After a rotten game yesterday, the Jays look to return to their winning ways and take the series from the Rays this afternoon. Jamie Shields (codename: "Big Game James") takes the hill for Tampa. Shields (6-2, 3.77) hasn't been phenomenal this season but he's been solid and his peripherals (59 2/3 IP, 57 K, 20 BB, 59% GB-rate) suggest that he's pitched even better than his results would indicate (3.09 xFIP). Things won't be easy for the offence but hopefully Ricky gets back on track and they can plate enough runs to pull this one out.

Remember the rules:

1) No illegal stream discussions
2) No images during the game
3) Don't argue with the mods
4) If you talk about your fantasy team, you will be mocked.
