MLB: Miami Marlins at Toronto Blue Jays Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are going for the (short) sweep. We will take it.

It’s a happy day, as it’s Alek Manoah day. Let’s hope his second start is as good as his first.

AJ Cole has been placed on the injured list with a sore neck, and Jeremy Beasley has been recalled to take his spot. That leaves a very interesting set of relievers in the ‘pen outside of Dolis, Romano and Chatwood.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Reese McGuire starts on back-to-back days, Panik bats 6th, and Rowdy will play 1st.

Today's Lineups

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.
