GameThread Game #15: Royals at Blue Jays

Doubleheader Game #1

The Blue Jays appear to be playing baseball today. I'm not making any promises. This will be the first of 21 games they will play over the next 20 days.

With the Royals comes old friend Ryan Goins. He is not in the starting lineup for game 1. They must be saving Mr RISPY for a RISPY situation.

Does UPS mean something different these days? (Seriously)

A couple wins today would put us into a good spot for the upcoming Yankees series.
