MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue Jays John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

This winning thing is pretty awesome and super enjoyable, so let’s keep it going.

The Jays are looking to take another series today from a division foe. It seems like if there’s any team who can do it, it’s the September 2021 Blue Jays.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Dickerson gets the start in center, Springer will DH again, and McGuire gets a rare start.

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.
