So today’s game has to be better than yesterday’s right? Almost couldn’t be worse without a natural disaster of some sort.
Sean Reid-Foley makes his 5th MLB start. So far he’s had 1 very good start, 1 ok start and 2 terrible starts. I’m hoping we’ll get his second very good start today.
CC Sabathia makes his 536th MLB start. He’s never made a relief appearance. He’s been quite good this year. His last four starts haven’t been great, 4.87 ERA over 20.1 innings.
I’m hoping we can score today. A run. Maybe 2....I don’t want to be greedy.
It sounds like Reid-Foley will be shut down for the last few days of the season.
Gibby news 'n' notes - SRF may have today and 1 more start before he reaches inning limit, about 10 away right now. Also, thinks Urena (in lineup at 2B) definitely has ability to be an everyday player in the big leagues. Thinks if he gets an opportunity, could take off. #bluejays— Dan Shulman (@DShulman_ESPN) September 15, 2018
