Congratulations to Jordan Romano, who has made the all star team!
Romano called his parents and his fiancee as soon as he got the news. His dad, Joe, doesn't like flying and hasn't been on a plane in about 10 years, Romano said, but his parents will go to see him in L.A. "They're really happy, they couldn't believe it."— Kaitlyn McGrath (@kaitlyncmcgrath) July 17, 2022

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, he would love to see an email that isn’t offering him money to promote a sports betting site. 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).
