Game #43 GameThread: Jays @ Cardinals

MO: Los Angeles Dodgers v St. Louis Cardinals, Game 3 Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

I don’t suppose asking for runs will do any good, right? Well, I’m still going to do it. Please score. Early, often, late, just score.

Santiago Espinal bats second again. Jansen catches. Kirk DHes. Gurriel sits. Tapia plays.

I’ve enjoyed watching Gausman pitch. I’m sure that will continue tonight.

I guess the good news is the games have been much shorter this season. But then I’d much rather watch a long exciting game than a short, boring one.

I just watched the last episode of season 6 of Better Call Saul, and I’m not sure TV gets any better than that. No spoilers, but it was pretty amazing.

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. 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.
