Game #51 GameThread: Twins @ Blue Jays

The start of a new series and, hopefully, the start of a new series sweep. Baseball is more fun when the Jays can score.

There is some Jays news:

  • They are telling us that Hyun Jin Ryu will miss “multiple weeks” with a forearm strain and elbow inflammation. He’s still getting it looked at, before deciding on a treatment.
  • Matt Chapman gets the day off. He was due an off-day this weekend, they decided to make it today after he got hit by pitch yesterday, but he’s “fine” (as my wife says ‘the four-letter f word).
  • And Tim Mayza threw BP today and all is good.

George Springer is back in the lineup after missing a couple of games with a ‘non-Covid’ illness.

Go Jays Go

As always remember we have rules.

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).
