    Buck Showalter is playing checkers by using traditional and dated moves like not using your closer unless you have a lead. Gibby is mustering the most he can out of 1B and LF by playing underwater interdemensional 4D Chess.

    Jays will win this game 5-4 on the strength of John Gibbons' brainpower.

    Make sure if you want to play the Homerun Contest this year you post your pick before the game!!!!!!!!!
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    Any being with the ability to view things in the 4th dimensional would be able to see all of space and time (past, present, and future) at once and thus would make 100% correct moves. Gibbons is not that being.

    I can't believe its actually the start of the season. Pumped. Fuck the O's. I must have watched Edwin's WC walk off 150 times. Nothing better than Weiters hearing the crack and then turning to walk back to his dugout, knowing it was gone. All with the best reliever in the game standing in the pen.

    I have lower expectations this year. Meh off season and thinking pen is light and the rotation cant be as good as last year. Can Morales and Pearce offset the loss of Edwin and does Jose bounce back with a big year? Can Travis stay off the DL? Can Pillar take a fucking BB?

    Its always only what happens between the lines that matters. Go Jays!

    You must not watch very many games.

    The big thing with this team is health. We've got a relatively deep lineup and a deep rotation but no depth behind the starters at all. We are paper thin at damn near every position. If we stay healthy we will compete. If we get even moderate injury problems I think it tanks our chances moreso than other teams. Last year the health was impeccable, especially in the rotation.

    So minor that it's not worth the risk of a perceived slight to a veteran player. Not that I think Russell would ever make anything of it but I get that there's a locker room culture based argument for making the new guy earn it.

    Didn't consider that. Tis a good point indeed, my nitpick has been officially retracted.
