Game #124 GameThread: Jays @ Cubs

This should be interesting.

I guess the fact that Marco is a fly ball pitch came into play when making up the lineup. Or it is easier to explain that way. I can't imagine this lineup with Stroman on the mound.

I'm not a fan of moving your star around the field. Donaldson, to me, should play third and only third (well, DH occasionally). I figure if Josh gets hurt, turning a double play or something, you almost have to fire the manager.

It would be nice if we could score. Kyle Hendricks has been great, so we have some work to do.
