After a lengthy road trip (and a series win against the Rays, predicted by 58% of BBB voters), the Jays are back in their home away from home to face the 2019 World Series Champs. They’ll have a battle ahead of them today, going up against “Mad Max” Scherzer. For some reason, this homer Devon Travis hit off of him always comes to mind when Max faces the Jays.

This was really great. A little bit of fun for your day:

We have some injury updates:

Here are tonight’s lineups. Biggio will stay in right field, Panik gets a start and Kirk will catch for Trent Thronton.

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “don’t be terrible,” but these days it’s also, “please debate about baseball and not the coronavirus or vaccines.” If a moderator asks you to stop doing something, please stop. If you want to discuss the rules, don’t do it in the thread. Email Tom instead. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here. You can Adopt-a-Jay here, and here’s a helpful tutorial on how to post images in the comments.
