Another spring Blue Jays game that isn’t on TV, it seems like there haven’t been many games on TV this spring.
Jose Bautista was in the original lineup but they decided to give him the day off. They have tomorrow off, so he can rest his back until Friday. Devon Travis is to play Friday too. I hope that one is on TV (just looked, it is).
Josh Donaldson is playing third today, continuing his comeback from hit calf issue. Ryan Goins plays left, another name to put the in the left field mix.
The big news is Gibby’s new contact. I’m sure the job stability feels good for Gibby.
The other big news is Marcus Stroman gets the start in the Championship game of the WBC. That should be a lot of fun for him.
And, of course, Dan Duquette said some stupid, insulting stuff about Jose Bautista.
There was another late change.....Smoak plays first, Pearce DH.
