GameThread Game #5: Orioles at Blue Jays

Can the scoreless starter streak continue?

MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at Detroit Tigers Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Old friend Dwight Smith Jr and the Orioles are in town, fresh of their series win against the... *checks notes*... New York Yankees. Sean Reid-Foley will be filling in for the injured Clayton Richard, and making his 2019 debut. It will be nice for him to have a start against a AAA team at the major league level before he does it at the AAA level.

We have some injury updates:

Also, this tweet from Adam Jones is pretty great:

Here are today’s lineups. Kevin Pillar gets a day off, so Grichuk will be in center. Billy McKinney will lead off, and Rowdy gets the start at DH. Galvis’ back tightness seems to have sorted itself out for now.

Also, apparently I’m now taking poll requests, so if you have something you need to poll the BBB community on, all requests will be considered.
