MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

If I could ask just one thing of this day, it would be for the Jays to beat the Rays.

We have a roster move:

Here is this afternoon’s lineup, which...doesn’t look great. Alas. Gurriel has moved up, McGuire gets a start, and Dyson will play center.

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.
