First of all, some good news - the roof will be open for tonight's game.
Maybe it will help us to win today, or at the very least get a hit?
A good start from Jaime Garcia would be welcomed. He looked great at the beginning of the season. I don't know what happened.
Couple of quotes from Gibby this afternoon:
Gibbons thinks Urshela can be a versatile depth piece in the infield. Can play multiple positions, best spot is probably third base. #BlueJays— Scott Mitchell (@ScottyMitchTSN) May 9, 2018
Gibbons on Kendrys Morales’ struggles: "I think it’s going to come. I mean, he’s always hit. I know he’s frustrated." #BlueJays— Scott Mitchell (@ScottyMitchTSN) May 9, 2018
Here's our lineups for tonight. Donaldson will DH, so Martin will start get the start at third. Pompey will be in left field, and Morales will be benched even though the Mariners' starter is a lefty.
