Game #27 GameThread: Mariners @ Jays

Game two of three with the Mariners. Game one went well.

Kevin Gausman is up against someone making his first career MLB start. As much as we often have trouble with pitchers making their first starts, I’m hopeful today. The offense seems to be rolling. But then Easton McGee was a Rays’ farm hand, and Rays pitchers tend to, you know, do better than we’d expect.

So we know life is rough in the AL East, but I don’t think it has ever been this rough before:

Today’s lineup. No surprises today. Whit sits. He’s going to get days off.

Today's Lineups

Julio Rodriguez - CF George Springer - RF
Jarred Kelenic - LF Bo Bichette - SS

    Of course, he’s a middling prospect making his first start.
