Game #7 GameThread: Jays @ Royals

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Kansas City Royals Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Now that we are back to .500, it would be nice to get a game above since a tough series against the Angels is ahead.

The Jays allowed some reporters in to look at the changes at Rogers.

If you want to know the dimensions:

And it would be nice to get Gausman some runs.

Springer gets a day off. Varsho moves to third in the lineup, and Chapman hits cleanup. Merrifield 5th is interesting, but why now. Vlad DH and Belt at first.

A personal opinion, in the early days of Bell-Moseby-Barfield (before the turf ruined Bell’s knees) they were hard to beat. In the early days, Bell had a good arm and could cover a decent amount of ground. When his knees were ruined, he, well, he was the way we remember him. Moseby and Barfield suffered from the turf too. But Barfield was up there with Devon White for the best defensive outfielders in our history.

Send me a note if you want to volunteer to hit cleanup for us and do the GameThreads.
