MLB: Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Happy 4th of July to all who are celebrating today. I will be very sad not to be in the US today, but I got to celebrate Canada Day here in Toronto, so I can’t complain much. The Red Sox will celebrating this momentous occasion by playing baseball in a country other than the US. What the heck, MLB?

Here are the caps the Blue Jays will be wearing today:

We have another rubber match today behind Stroman (presuming no last minute pitching changes like last night), Thomas Pannone apparently. Beating the Red Sox on the 4th of July at home would be oh so sweet. Make it happen, Jays!

No Vlad today.
