Kevin Pillar leading off, the spectre of having to talk about a bad JA Happ performance, or Maicer Izturis retiring, or Aaron Loup being shut down for two weeks and likely not being ready for opening day can’t even get me down about this one.
Blue Jays baseball-ish on TV on a Friday afternoon? Tulo in the lineup with his new leg kick that’s going to destroy the AL? Storen and Osuna getting in some action? The potential of Brad Penny’s arm falling off live in front of us? Let’s do this!
SCUTTLEBUTT FORTHCOMING! (Unless it isn’t!)
Next game: Tomorrow, 1:07 PM ET, vs. Phillies
And now, the lineups…
Toronto Blue Jays
LHP JA Happ
RHP Van Swirly
