After acing the offseason, the Jays are headed into the 2021 season primed to compete (let’s just ignore that they are without their 2nd starter, top pitching prospect, closer and all star center fielder).

But opening day waits for no player, so here we go!

Before we start, our GM would like to say a few words:

Here are today’s lineups for our opening day matchup of Hyun-Jin Ryu and Gerrit Cole. Semien will lead off, Jansen will catch and Rowdy will DH.
