GameThread Game #2: Rangers at Blue Jays

Yesterday, I was on a work zoom call that started the same time the Jays game did. With periodic checks, I saw there was a lot of video tributes, a lot of awards, and a lot of delaying the game start time. Eventually, the brief glances were of Jose Berríos’s less than stellar start, and I didn’t feel so bad about missing it anymore.

The call finally ended in the 5th, and you all know what happened there. I was able to watch the last couple innings with my mom over FaceTime. What a way to start the season.

Is it too early in the season for injury updates? We’ve got ‘em, anyway:

Here are today’s lineups. Kirk will catch for Kevin Gausman, Tapia gets a start, and Gurriel will 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. And if the Jays taught us anything on Opening Day, it’s that they’re always still in it.
