Game #65: Yankees at Blue Jays

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Cleveland Indians David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are back in their home away from home to take on the struggling Yankees who are only one game above .500.

I’m headed to Dodger Stadium tonight for their full capacity re-opening. Brad Paisley is singing the national anthem, there’s a World Series celebration with the team wearing their gold lined unis, and masks aren’t required for us vaccinated folks. Can’t wait.

The only updates I have so far are on Vlad Jr and the home run derby:

Today’s lineup:
