Game #72 GameThread: Jays @ Rangers

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Another attempt at .500. Honestly, with the start we had, I didn't think we'd get back to .500 until after the All-Star break, so it doesn't bother me that they haven't hit .500.

There are a few changes to the lineup. Donaldson gets the 'half day' rest, DHing. Martin plays third, Pearce needs a day or two.

Marcus Stroman gets the start. He's been very good. Martin Perez starts for the Rangers, he hasn't been good, but we've had our troubles against lefties.

Today's Lineups

Jose Bautista - RF Shin-Soo Choo - RF
Russell Martin - 3B Elvis Andrus - SS
Josh Donaldson - DH Nomar Mazara - LF
Justin Smoak - 1B Adrian Beltre - DH

Kevin Pillar - CF Carlos Gomez - CF
Darwin Barney - 2B Joey Gallo - 3B

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. Remember losing makes Tom a wee bit grumpy. Also don't debate the rules in the thread. Send Tom a note instead (he doesn't get near enough email).
