Game Threat: Broadway Stro Show, Blue Jays (9-18) @ Yankees (16-9)

Marcus Stroman has been nails this season, he always pitches well against the Yankees, and he enjoys important games. Add that all up, and we should be in line to witness a Stro Show tonight in what could be the Jays’ second series win in a (row if everything goes according to plan).

News and Scuttlebutt

The big news from today is that Salty has been formally released from the Blue Jays. The team is still on the hook for all of his $1.25 million salary. In injury news, J.A. Happ still isn’t very close to returning, meaning more Mat Latos. Yeaaaaahhh!!!!

Today

TV: SNET1

Radio: SN590

And now, the lineups…

Blue Jays

Marcus Stroman: 36 1/3 IP, 2.97 ERA, 8.9 H9, 0.5 HR9, 1.7 BB9, 6.9 SO9

Yankees

CC Sabathia: 29.0 IP, 4.34 ERA, 8.7 H9, 1.6 HR9, 3.4 BB9, 6.2 SO9

If Marcus Stroman was cloned and one of them ate the other, you would have CC Sabathia. That’s a good way to describe one guy being big and one guy being not big, I think. Sabathia had a nice start to the season, but over his past few times out, he’s been drilled. Stroman, on the other hand, has been excellent in his last two outings. Being a New York kid, Stroman seems to get fired up playing at Yankees stadium. So we’ll probably see the best of the Stro Show tonight.
