The Red Sox are in town after narrowly escaping a 3-game sweep by the Yankees. Probably not the best team to try to pull out of a slump against, but such is life.
Aaron, I don't want to put too much pressure on you, but a quality start is very needed at the moment.
The Jays made a couple of roster moves today, which Erik recapped here. With Gaviglio being listed on the line-up card, it appears as if Joe Biagini will take Stroman's start on Sunday.
Here's our lineups for tonight. Granderson sits against a lefty (the Red Sox will be starting three lefties this series so he will probably be sitting a lot), and Luke Maile will catch for Aaron Sanchez. I'd be thrilled if we could scratch out three runs against Sale like we did last time.
