The Jays are looking to prevent the sweep, sending Julian Merryweather out as an opener to oppose Masahiro Tanaka. If we could limit the Evil Empire to one touchdown, that would be lovely.

We have a couple updates and roster moves:

We also have a Matt Shoemaker update (for those who are looking for a qualified second starter in the playoffs):

Here are today’s lineups. Teoscar is back and starting in right field, Vladdy is DHing and Panik gets a start and second. On the Yankees side, Stanton is in the lineup, but no Aaron Judge.
