Looks like the Blue Jays have a ‘home’ park. Hazel Mae tweeted that it was official, PNC Park in Pittsburgh will be the home park for most of the Jays home games.Some work will have to be done to give them a home clubhouse but that shouldn’t take too long.

There will be a series against the Yankees that will be played in Yankee Stadium with the Jays as the home team and one against the Nationals in Nationals Park with the Jays getting last at bats. Tomorrow the schedule is supposed to be finalized, so we’ll know if more home games will have to be played in other places. Tomorrow the

This will add a fair bit of work for the Pirates’ groundskeepers and support staff.

It isn’t perfect, but then nothing in this season will be perfect.

Want a new cap:

Apparently there are 6,774 Covid cases in Allegheny County, an area of 1.2 million.

Shi Davidi writes about Nate Pearson this morning.

He finishes by says that sending him down...

If the Blue Jays believe in their players as much as they say, and they’re all about winning, then surrendering the extra season of control is simply the cost of doing business when you’re trying to win. Should Pearson become a front of the rotation pillar, then it would make sense to try and extend him well before that extra year of control becomes a factor, anyway.

Yeah, they’ll want to extend him before losing control but saving that year would allow them to have one more season at a lower salary.

I’d like him on the team to start the season, but I’m guessing that it isn’t likely. They need him pitch in competitive games and the only way is to have him on the Blue Jays.

We will find out tomorrow what the team roster will be to start the season.

Mookie Betts is about to become a very rich man:

You feeling the urge for a ballpark hot dog? Or would you like to have say 7 ballpark hot dogs delivered to Matt’s house? Well, Heinz and Doordash are going to help you out with that.

It’s estimated that MLB fans will consume 18.3 million hot dogs this season. This year when the Blue Jays™ return on July 24, COVID-19 restrictions mean fans will miss out. That’s why Heinz is bringing Toronto Blue Jays™ fans a taste of the iconic gameday experience with Heinz Game Day Dogs - authentic hot dogs delivered to your seat through DoorDash in the GTA.

Fans can pre-order on desktop starting July 22, or on mobile starting July 23 at 5pm until game day. They come wrapped in stadium warming foil, condiments and a custom Heinz Sounds of Baseball Spotify playlist. Heinz and DoorDash are covering all service and delivery fees and all proceeds from Heinz Game Day Dogs will support Jays Care Foundation™ in helping to provide meals for families living in Toronto Community Housing.

I had my last ever hotdog last year at a Jays game (dollar hotdogs will do that to a guy), but there may be some of you out there who really want one. Prices are:

Two hot dogs are $12 and four hot dogs are $24.

Delivery fees are covered and money will go to Jays Care, so it is for a good cause.

If someone knows Matt’s address.....
