I will be out all afternoon, so I’m putting this up early because the scheduler is acting up.
I was hoping that we would hear that Teoscar Hernandez was in Cleveland, but he is playing outfield for Dunedin tonight. Apparently, they have set up a locker for him in Cleveland, so they must be planning to call him up this series.
The Jays are saying it is a scheduled off day for George Springer. I have my doubts. He DHed yesterday. I can’t see him needing the day off unless he was nursing something.
The Jays had a slow trip through customs. They didn’t get into Cleveland until 4 am. So they might be a bit tired, they didn’t take hitting practice.
And Hyun Jin Ryu is to start for the Bisons Saturday.
The start times of this series are interesting:
Today we have José Berríos, who, in his last 3 starts, has a 1.93 ERA, so we won’t talk about the 2 starts before that.
Aaron Civale starts for the Guardians. His last 3 starts haven’t gone well, with a 12.27 ERA. It would be nice if the offense got going today.

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)
