Excuse me, Len. Can I join the injured list?

Oh, great. Encarnacion is scratched after having some soreness in his shoulder and forearm thanks to last night’s dive after he was kinda stupidly asked to play in left, and now there’s another talking point all the negative fucking suckholes who are absolutely hell bent on smugly napalm-shitting on every last fucking thing about this team and this season, whether it deserves it or not, until it’s fucked dead.

Puke.

Shi Davidi tells us the Brett Lawrie may return on Tuesday, that Brandon Morrow has just one more rehab start to go, and that John Farrell himself threw batting practice to Jose Bautista, who is looking at going for rehab games early next week.

Edwin Encarnacion played left field. Also, don’t let the image throw you. I’m not blaming this on Lincoln, I just really wanted to use that picture.
