Sundays are better with baseball broadcasts, and thankfully, today we have another.
It’ll be the first Jays simultaneous radio/TV broadcast, so we shall see how it goes.
Here are today’s lineups. The Jays are up against Gerrit Cole, who they’ll face on Opening Day.

Different-looking lineup for #Bluejays as they host NYY today. Biggio hits second, playing LF, Semien 6th. No Gurriel or Tellez, but everyone else is in.— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness) March 21, 2021
Gerrit Cole pitching - they’ll face him on opening day. Tanner Roark starts for #Jays, so he’s unlikely to start that series.

Charlie Montoyo said yesterday the right-hander's next step would be a Grapefruit League appearance if he feels good.#BlueJays
