So how much do you trust what the Blue Jays say? Yunel Escobar was removed from the starting lineup with 'back tightness'. Is it possible they are lying? Is it possible there is a trade coming very soon? When was the last time Yunel missed a game with back tightness?


Yeah, the Jays wouldn't wouldn't lie that openly.


Of course not.


Most likely.


Anyway, today's line up:


Lineup

TORONTO BLUE JAYS OAKLAND A\'S
Brett Lawrie, 3B Coco Crisp, CF
Colby Rasmus, CF Jonny Gomes, LF
Edwin Encarnacion, 1B Josh Reddick, RF
Adam Lind, DH Yoenis Cespedes, DH
J.P. Arencibia, C Chris Carter,1B
Kelly Johnson, 2B Brandon Inge, 3B
Travis Snider, LF Derek Norris, C
Omar Vizquel, SS Brandon Hicks, SS
Anthony Gose, RF Jemile Weeks, 2B

Starting pitchers:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Ricky Romero 8-6 21 20 1 0 0 0 122.1 122 76 71 17 62 84 5.22 1.50


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - A.J. Griffin 2-0 5 5 0 0 0 0 30.0 24 9 9 4 6 20 2.70 1.00

I'll be so happy when the trade deadline has past and a player missing a game is just a player missing a game.

Remember the rules, with some reminders:

1. Don't act like a 5 year old.

2. No pitchers or gifs until the game is over.

3. Don't argue with the mods. If a mod suggests stopping something, just stop. I know it is tough to walk away from an argument, but sometimes it is best.

4. Don't argue rules in the thread. If you don't like a rule, write me. We can argue it by email, but the thread isn't a place for that debate.

5. If we lose and you say 'Season's over', I will mock you.

Go Jays.
