Game #39 GameThread: Braves @ Jays

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Time to build on a 5-game win streak.

I hate the idea of a 2-man bench, almost as much as I hate an 9-man bullpen. I really hate the 8-man bullpen too, but it seems to be the way the baseball world is going.

Bartolo Colon was in 6th major league season when he played for the Montreal Expos. He has made 7 starts this season and has a 7.22 ERA. Nope, not a typo, his ERA is above 7 and he's start on the team.

Bolsinger makes his second start for the Jays. His first one went pretty well, 5.2 innings. 3 hits, 2 earned, 4 walks and 4 strikeouts. If he can do the same tonight, I'd be very happy.
