Game 59 GameThread: Jays @ Tigers

Go Jays Go

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The start of another series, this time the Blue Jays are in Detroit to face the Tigers. I just listened to the idiot on Sportsnet telling us that this is a statement series. Just shoot me.

Couple of little bits of news:

  • Edwin Encarnacion was named AL Player of the Month for May. I know that surprises all of you.
  • And, if you are tired of reading stuff from me and you think 'hey I'd like to just listen to Tom', last night I talked to Phil Naessens about our team. Phil talked to me, over skype, from Greece. I should have asked him to fly me over for the conversation.

Here are tonight's lineups:

Today's Lineups

Jose Reyes - SS Ian Kinsler - 2B
Melky Cabrera - LF Torii Hunter - RF
Jose Bautista - RF Miguel Cabrera - 1B

Remember we have rules around here. Some reminders, don't talk about illegal streams,don't argue the rules, don't piss off the mods and don't be terrible. Also no Gifs or pictures until the game ends.
