MLB: Exhibition-Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports


And I’m sure most of us are unsure how to feel about it. I’m torn between feeling like they shouldn’t be playing, but am also so unbelievably thrilled to be watching baseball again.

Regardless, the no-longer nomadic Jays have a home, and it’s not so bad?!

Here are today’s lineups. The Jays are doing a lefty/righty alternate pretty much all the way through. Gurriel is still out with a sore side, Bichette leads off, Vladdy bats 3rd and Shaw bats cleanup.

Today's Lineups

Bo Bichette - SS Yandy Diaz - 1B
Cavan Biggio - 2B Hunter Renfroe - RF
Vladimir Guerrero - 1B Yoshi Tsutsugo - 3B
Travis Shaw - 3B Jose Martinez - DH
Randal Grichuk - CF Manuel Margot - LF
Rowdy Tellez - DH Mike Brosseau - 2B
Teoscar Hernandez - RF Willy Adames - SS
Derek Fisher - LF Kevin Kiermaier - CF
Danny Jansen - C Mike Zunino - C
Hyun-Jin Ryu - LHP Charlie Morton - RHP
