This here is a pretty lame Game Threat for a Thursday night and a big game that the Jays really probably want to win in order to keep the margin of their lead in the AL East from getting too uncomfortable, but… well… it’s the World Cup. So… y’know. Four years from now it’ll be the same story, so deal with it.
Plus! I’m about to head off to be part of a terrific panel at PITCH: #4, featuring the less-hung-over-than-I-am-I-guarantee Morgan Campbell, Michael Grange, and Jonah Keri. So I won’t even be seeing much of this one until later, which might not be the worst thing in the world, seeing as Brett Lawrie is getting the day off with his sore hand, Adam Lind is still out with a sore foot, and Steve Delabar is back with the club after Brett Cecil ended up actually having to hit the DL with a groin injury, a g-g-groin, a g-g-groin, a g-g-groin injury.
Fuck, are they ever due to win at this corporate shithole stadium, though. So that could work, too.
