Game Threat: A Stro Show Would Be Good, Blue Jays (4-13) @ Angels (8-11)

After coming up with an exciting win in extra innings on Friday, the Blue Jays failed to capitalize on the momentum, and dropped yet another one-run game. They’ll be back at it this afternoon when Marcus Stroman goes up against some guy you’ve surely never heard of.

And now, the lineups…

Blue Jays

Marcus Stroman: 20.0 IP, 4.05 ERA, 9 ER, 24 H, 4 BB, 1 HR, 13 SO

Angels

Daniel Wright: 4.0 IP, 6.75 ERA, 3 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 0 HR, 0 SO

The Blue Jays used Casey Lawrence, a 29-year-old rookie, in last night’s game. He fared admirably and gave the Jays a chance to win, which, I think, is all you can really ask of him in that situation. Now it’s the Angels’ turn to toss out a random starter you’ve never heard of. Daniel Wright, who’s got a 6.18 ERA over 43 2/2 innings in his major league career, will fill in for Jesse Chavez, who ended up having to pitch in Friday’s 13-inning marathon game. The Jays lineup still hasn’t been anywhere near good, but it seems to be trending in the right direction. Let’s hope they can capitalize on this opportunity against a starter without any pedigree.

      This comment made me want to sign up for an account. We all know Travis is better than carrera. But Travis isn’t doing 2hole type things right now at the plate. Carrera hasn’t been bad, and the speed helps. We all wanna see Travis hitting 300 on the top of the lineup, but he needs some time. And he’s not a Bautista where you worry about drastically moving him in the lineup.

        2hole type things? Do you know what year it is? The best hitters go at the top of the lineup, we’re DONE with this old school lineup construction nonsense, OK?

          So, you know. Maybe that’s why. What “old school line up construction nonsense” are you DONE with?
          I’m DONE with your dumbassery.
          Do you even lift* bro?
