GameThread Game #51: Blue Jays at Cleveland

Double header Game 1

The Jays have a doubleheader today, and I will sadly be missing both games as I’m headed to spend the day at Disneyland this holiday weekend.

Ross Stripling starts Game 1, and hopefully the tweaks he made last time will stick.

I’m starting to wonder if the Jays will ever play a nine-inning game again. These 2 games, barring extra innings, will make 5 games in a row of 7 innings or less.

Did you see this yesterday? How long until Vlad tries it?
