Tom is off Stampeding (or maybe he's off stampeding--not sure if he's into that) so I'm hijacking his GameThread. Note that the game will start at around 1:15 because the Blue Jays will be doing some 40th anniversary ceremonies prior to first pitch.
As you can see in today's lineups Edwin Encarnacion is not on starting nor is he on the bench--that's because he has dropped his appeal and is serving is one-game suspension for bumping into umpire Vic
Crappyplaza Carapazza. Kevin Pillar is the Blue Jays' fifth hitter in this less-than-ideal lineup, but they are facing poor Anibal Sanchez (and I am using "poor" as in "horribad").
GO JAYS GO!
As always, remember we have rules around there. Mostly it's "don't be terrible". If a moderator ask you to stop doing something, please stop, don't debate the rules in the thread. Send Tom a note instead (he doesn't get near enough email).
