The Blue Jays have game two of the series in St. Pete. It was very nice to start the series with a win. Let's win again tonight.
A couple of call-ups get into the game tonight, Ryan Goins plays second, which I like, and Anthony Gose plays center. I get the feeling we won't be seeing a ton of Colby Rasmus this last month. It is ok by me, Pillar, Gose and Pompey all look to be much better defensively.
Hmmmm just after I typed that I read this:
Colby Rasmus has been benched. "I’m just going to be sitting around watching these rookies play," he says. Story coming. #BlueJays— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) September 3, 2014
Chris Archer is having a good season, 8-7 with a 3.40 ERA in 27 starts. This is his 5th start against the Jays this year. He is 1-0, with a 3.75 ERA in his first 4 starts. in 24 innings he's allowed 22 hits, 8 walks with 27 strikeouts. We haven't hit a home run against him yet.
Stroman is coming off a great start against the Red Sox, going 7.2 with just 1 earned run against.
