That is, if the rain holds off

In theory, the Jays are looking for the split tonight. However, the tarp is currently residing on the field and whether they can get a game in will be iffy (please don’t let any more players get hurt. We are running very low at the moment).

The rotation for the weekend has been set (which I am sure will not be affected in the slightest as to whether the game tonight is played):

Charlie is perhaps hoping a line-up shake up will awaken this offense. Biggio is batting lead off, Semien and Gurriel have been bumped down, and Palacios gets a start.
