The Toronto Blue Jays (61-52) welcomed to Oakland Athletics (51-62) as well as multiple former Jays. Most notably, Jesse Chavez who pitched 9 games for the team back in 2012 going 1-1 with a 8.44 ERA.
Oh, and Brett Lawrie, Danny Valencia, and Kendall Graveman. The A's starting Third Baseman, Designated Hitter, and today's starting pitcher.
The Jays looking for their ninth straight victory against a team who is playing for pride at this point.
The only question I had coming into the game was whether or not the fans would make us at home proud and cheer for the former Jays. Or, at the very least, not boo them.
LOUD cheers for both Danny Valencia and Brett Lawrie as A's starting lineup is announced.— Melissa Couto (@ThrowinSmoke) August 11, 2015
