GameThread for game one of two today. Of course, I planned to go out back before this was a doubleheader, but I’ll see most of the game.
Teoscar isn’t in game one but he’s still a lot of fun:
Teoscar Hernandez met the media before the game, said he's physically fine though his timing isn't all the way back, despite two homers in Dunedin.— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness) May 7, 2022
Asked to comment on #Bluejays lack of offence, he smiled and said "I'm not gonna say it's because I was out..."
There is a bit of news, Gosuke Katoh has been grabbed by the Mets. He was fun to have around. I wish the best for him.
We have Kevin Gausman vs. Shane Bieber in game one.

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)
