MLB: Oakland Athletics at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are about to commence what we will hope will be a revenge series for Marcus Semien against his former team. A series win would also do wonders to help the Jays in the standings. Today we get a fun tomato/tomatoah match up with a Manaea and a Manoah.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Kirk catches this one, and Gurriel gets the start in left field.

Today's Lineups

ATHLETICS BLUE JAYS
Josh Harrison - 2B George Springer - DH

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.
