The Blue Jays start a 3 game series in New York against the Yankees.
And Joe Biagini has been activated from the DL and Russell Martin is back from the birth of his daughter. He still won’t be playing much.
There isn’t much else for news today. There was this tweet quoting Gibby:
Gibby: I’m not anti-sac bunt, I think there’s a time and place for it. But you have to be aware who you’re bunting to get to, and there has to be someone on base who can run at least a little bit. #Bluejays— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness590) September 14, 2018
I liked Earl Weaver’s line better, “I’ve got nothing against the bunt -- in its place. But most of the time that place is the bottom of a long-forgotten closet”.
Here is tonight’s Fisher Cats’ lineup:

FWIW: Jordan Romano was the winning pitcher in the 2017 Florida State League clincher for the @DunedinBlueJays, and the winning pitcher in this year's divisional round clincher vs. the @TrentonThunder pic.twitter.com/o2CGYCu3gA
