Friday Bantering: Jays Bits

I was up too early this morning for the women’s soccer final. A very exciting game, with the right team winning. Keeper Stephanie Labbe was amazing in the shootout. She had a smile on her face. And made the saves when we really needed them.

It was great to see Christine Sinclair get a well-earned Gold Medal.

But I’m not normally up at 6 in the morning, so I’m dragging.

Anyway, we are starting a four-game series with the Red Sox. For the last month and a half, every game people have told me it is a must-win. And this series too. Thankfully the players continue on whether they win or lose in each of these must-win games.

The starters for the series:

Tonight: Nathan Eovaldi (9-6, 3.71) vs. Alek Manoah (3-1, 2.47)

Saturday game one: Nick Pivetta (8-5, 4.57) vs. Robbie Ray (9-5, 3.04)

Saturday game two: Tanner Houck (0-2, 2.35) vs. Jose Berrios (8-5, 3.31)

Sunday: Garrett Richards (6-7, 5.21) vs. Hyun Jin Ryun (11-5, 3.22)

It would be great to start the weekend off with a win.


The odds of the Jays making the playoffs are improving:

This is a hopeful sign:

Jays Care does great work. If you are in Ontario, you can help Jays Care do great work and you might win a lot of money (remember me if you do).

Tonight’s lineup (I’m ready to pull the plug on the Breyic Valera idea, but hopefully he’ll prove me wrong).
