Let’s start the new week with a W and put some distance between the Jays and this familiar division foe in the WC standings.

Here’s a little All Star update:

Could Kikuchi be booted from the rotation?

We have some injury updates, which is also functioning as a reminder for me as to which Blue Jays are on the IL:

In other reminders about who is a current Blue Jay, we have this roster move:

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).
