Game Threat: Keep It Rolling, Braves (13-21) @ Blue Jays (17-21)

Well, look at that. A nice little winning streak and suddenly the season is alive and well. The Jays took advantage of a beaten up Mariners team, now they’ll be given another opportunity to pick up some badly needed wins against a weak Braves team.

Here’s some damn good news! Apparently we might be close to getting Tulo and Donaldson back, which would be great because the Jays have TWO players on their bench tonight!

And now, the lineups…

Mike Bolsinger: 5 2/3 IP, 3.18 ERA, 4.8 H9, 0 HR9, 6.4 BB9, 6.4 SO9

Bartolo Colon: 38 2/3 IP, 7.22 ERA, 10.7 H9, 1.9 HR9, 2.1 BB9, 6.1 SO9

Yikes, it’s been an ugly season so far for Big Sexy. Since arriving in Atlanta, Bartolo Colon has made seven starts, posting a a league-worst 7.22 earned run average. That’s, uh, probably not what the Braves were expecting. Colon isn’t there to be a world beater, but instead to eat innings, and that’s what he’ll be doing tonight. The Jays really should hit Colon hard, and they might have to, because we’ll be getting round two of the Mike Bolsinger experience. He was strong in his first start last week, but who the hell knows what’s in store tonight!

    As predicted. this was high scoring game with the Jays coming up short. We just need to pull another prospect from the minors for the next one. Lets hope the door does not hurt Bullshit Slinger as he heads back to the minors. His curve ball was not fooling anyone. The rest of the series should be good if our current pitchers keep preforming. Happ please come back soon.
