GameThread Game #53: Twins at Blue Jays

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

We are back in the winning column, and looking to take the series win during this rubber match game.

It’s a beautiful day here today, so I’m being dragged to the beach.

The Jays will be in their red uniforms today, for reasons?

Here are today’s lineups. The Jays’ looks pretty darn good, and is also entirely right handed.

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).
