GameThread Game 8: A’s @ Jays

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Kansas City Royals Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Kate asked if I could put up tonight’s GameThread and, of course, I forget until the last moment.

Everyone will be wearing 42 today. I’ve always thought that numbers on the back of baseball jerseys were unneeded.

Ross Stripling gets a spot start today, giving the main starters an extra day. Considering the short spring, an extra day will be a welcome thing.
