GameThread Game #12: Blue Jays at Orioles

Today the Jays will go for their third straight series win.

With Morales on the DL, it will be interesting to see how Gibbons uses the versatility of the DH spot over the next 10 days. We have debated many times whether we think Jays are a better team without Morales, and now we will get a chance to see what that would look like.

It seems like a lot of people on Twitter are upset because they wanted Tesocar Hernandez to be called up instead. Since the Jays don't have a long reliever, they will greatly benefit from having an 8-men bullpen. They are one abbreviated start away from being in a pickle.
