GameThread Game #150: Blue Jays at Rays

New, 580 comments
MLB: Minnesota Twins at Toronto Blue Jays John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are in our least favorite park named after orange juice to take on a formidable division foe for the second time this month. They’ll have a tall task ahead of them if they want to score some runs tonight as they’ll be up against a top prospect making his major league debut in Shane Baz.

Here are tonight’s lineups that will try to give Baz a unwelcoming hello to the majors. Springer will get another start as the DH, Grichuk starts in center, and Lamb at 3rd. Kirk, as always, will catch for Ray.

Today's Lineups

BLUE JAYS RAYS
George Springer - DH Yandy Diaz - 3B
Marcus Semien - 2B Nelson Cruz - DH

Alejandro Kirk - C Joey Wendle - 2B

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.
