GameThread for Game 103: Red Sox @ Blue Jays

Tom Szczerbowski

The final game of our four game series with the Godless Red Sox.

I'd like to win this one, especially just before going into Yankee Stadium. I hate games there, you have to beat the Yankees and the umpires.

Rubby De La Rosa has been very good in his 7 starts this season. He is 3-2 with a 2.64 ERA. In 44.1 innings, he's allowed 36 hits, 5 home runs, 12 walks with 35 strikeouts.

And you know how good Marcus Stroman has been.

Colby Rasmus is sitting today. I would imagine he might be less than happy. I'm curious about Gibby's pecking order at first base. I would have thought Johnson was the better defensive player between him and Francisco, but Gibby thinks otherwise, and he has more information than I do. I also thought Bautista looked pretty good at first base. He didn't get to Kawasaki's bad throw but that happens, the double play he started was great.

Today's Lineups

Brock Holt - 2B Jose Reyes - SS
Shane Victorino - RF Melky Cabrera - LF
David Ortiz - DH Jose Bautista - RF
Mike Napoli - 1B Dioner Navarro - C
