MLB: Game Two-Toronto Blue Jays at Baltimore Orioles Daniel Kucin Jr.-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are going for the series win, which would be oh so sweet. Perhaps we can try scoring early and saving all the late-inning drama.

Minor Leaguer and I were at the Dodgers game last night, streaming the Jays game at the same time after Tom summoned him to break up the no-hitter. We were happy to be able to play a role in the win.

Here are today’s lineups. Springer sits, Vlad DHs and Lamb plays 1st. Valera gets the start at 3rd.

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.
