Let’s hope some of that home stand magic is still lingering, and the Jays can right the ship on their season.

We have some injury updates - some good (Springer, Pearson!) and one not so good (Merryweather):

Here are tonight’s lineups that will look to get us back to our winning ways. Bichette leads off, Kirk bats 6th and Kevin Smith will DH in his major league debut.

Today's Lineups

Robbie Grossman - RF Bo Bichette - SS
Jonathan Schoop - 2B Marcus Semien - 2B
Jeimer Candelario - 3B Vladimir Guerrero - 1B

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.
