It’s opening day, and I’m beyond excited, but also beyond swamped with work (put together a new show in 6 weeks they said. It will be fun they said).

I was invited to answer some questions about the Blue Jays over at the Rangers SB Nation site.

GO JAYS GO!

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.
