GameThread Game #14: Rays at Blue Jays

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Time to find out if stealing away one of the Rays’ leaders and integrating him into our team is the key to curing the curse of the Trop. At the very least, hopefully our no-hit woes are (mostly) a thing of the past.

We have another whole slew of injury updates. This one makes me particularly sad.

Some good news injury updates:

  • Tepera will throw tonight in Buffalo
  • Richard will play catch this weekend
  • Phelps ramping back up to side sessions

Pompey, Travis and Axford are all being evaluated to start resuming baseball activities

For all of us on #VladWatch (which to be honest, who isn’t?)

There’s also this:

Here are tonight’s lineups. Billy McKinney is leading off, the red hot Freddy Galvis stays in the number 2 slot, and Maile will once again catch for the rookie Thornton. Drury and Tellez will be on the bench.

Was the Red Sox pitching the fix to the Jays poor hitting?
