Tonight's Blue Jays lineup and bits of news

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

So this is a lineup we weren't hoping to see this season:

Ryan Goins and Jonathan Diaz in the same batting order. I wonder when the last time Donaldson was the leadoff hitter in a game.

About Travis:

I stand by the 'he should have been taken out of yesterday's game'. This stuff bugs me. We've had enough injuries that we should be proactive, not watching guys swing the bat when they are hurting.

Speaking of Devon Travis, the Toronto chapter of the Baseball Writers of America (read that sentence twice) voted Devon as the Honda Blue Jays player of the month. The first of several awards he should receive this month.

David Schoenfield, at ESPN SweetSpot, list the 10 top plays of April,which I think he's messed up because there is just one Kevin Pillar clip.

Barry Davis gives us the reasoning behind calling up Andrew Albers:

Editor note: SB Nation partner FanDuel is a daily fantasy baseball game, where you can actually win money. Today's game is $3 to play and has $125,000 in prizes (all US funds). It is fun, give it a try.
