I’m just a girl, standing in front of the Blue Jays, asking them to win, again, please.

I’m headed out on a long hike today, like half marathon distance. I’m not sure what I’ve agreed to, so if you can be keeping me in your thoughts and prayers that would be great.

Here are today’s lineups. Springer will DH, Espinal gets the start at 3rd (boy is it nice to have him back), and Grichuk will get the start in center.

Today's Lineups

George Springer - DH Luis Arraez - 3B
Marcus Semien - 2B Byron Buxton - CF
Vladimir Guerrero - 1B Jorge Polanco - 2B
Bo Bichette - SS Josh Donaldson - DH
Teoscar Hernandez - RF Max Kepler - RF
Corey Dickerson - LF Mitch Garver - C
Santiago Espinal - 3B Miguel Sano - 1B
Danny Jansen - C Nick Gordon - SS
Randal Grichuk - CF Jake Cave - LF
Alek Manoah - RHP Griffin Jax - RHP

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. And please no ‘game over’ comments until the game is actually over.
