It surprises me that, even though I think the Jays have had a terrible start to the season, if they win tonight, they are back to .500 after 10 games.
Tonight, Colabello is back in the lineup and Marcus Stroman gets his third start. Marcus has had 1 very good start and one not so good start. In his last start, he allowed 10 baserunners in 5.1 innings. 5 of those baserunners scored (3 after he was pulled from the game, not that it was bad idea to pull him with the bases loaded, one out and 92 pitches thrown). I'm betting today is a much better game.
It is Nathan Eovaldi's second start for the Yankees. His first wasn't good, 5 innings, 6 hits, 5 earned, 2 home runs, no walks and 7 strikeouts in a game they would go on to win over Houston.
