GameThread Game #48: White Sox at Blue Jays

Thanks to Tom for filling in and writing the GameThreads for me while I was underwater with work. I appear to have missed a lot of bad ballgames.

I was fortunate enough to watch two of the Angels games in person - Friday night then the marathon of a mess on Sunday. I’m not used to seeing wins in person. It was lovely.

That Sunday game had everything, and we got our money’s worth. We paid for $9 tickets and wandered around different sections, sitting in open seats. Even when the Jays were down, I never felt like they were out of it. Right before Bo hit his homer, I said aloud that the Jays were due for one. It was a great moment.

Onto the next!

We have some injury updates. I always forget Nate Pearson is still a thing. Would be great to have him up with the team soon.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Old friend Reese McGuire is batting 7th. Espinal sits against a righty.

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).
