GameThead Game #111: Jays at Angels

New, 423 comments

Game 1 of the Double Header

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Los Angeles Angels Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are in town to play the Angels, and I am elated to be going to both games today. I’ll do my best to cheer loudly, and be the home crowd away from home. The last time I saw the Jays play a regular season game live was in August of 2019 when they played the Dodgers. Cannot. Wait.

For the night game, I’ll be sitting in the first row on the first baseline, between first base and right field. I haven’t seen the Jays win a regular season game since Marco Estrada started in August 2018 in Seattle and have three chances this week. So, please Blue Jays??

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.
