Game #36 GameThread: Mariners @ Jays

We could use a winning streak starting now.

The roof is open!

Robbie Ray didn’t make the trip to Toronto, so we can pretty much be sure that he isn’t vaccinated, which might explain why the Jays didn’t go hard to re-sign him. The Mariners don’t get to add a player to their roster to take his spot. The rule is that pitchers who pitched within four days of their team coming into Canada can’t be replaced on the roster.

Tyler Heineman was claimed off ‘outright waivers’ by the Pirates. Best of luck to him.

And some injury updates:

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 (so please, no “Game Over” comments until the game is actually over). And don’t take the last beer. It is mine.
