Happy Easter to all who are celebrating today.

The Jays are going for the sweep today, just like we all predicted. Sitting in 3rd place at two games under .500 doesn’t seem all that terrible at the moment.

The Jays will be facing an old friend: the oft injured Brett Anderson.

Here are today’s lineups. Matt Shoemaker has been sent to the IL, and Richard Ureña has been recalled. Alen Hanson is leading off (?!), Tellez is DHing, and Jansen is catching for Sanchez

Today's Lineups

Alen Hanson - 2B Robbie Grossman - LF
Freddy Galvis - SS Marcus Semien - SS
Randal Grichuk - CF Matt Chapman - 3B
