no. 39 2017: Braves (13-21) at Blue Jays (17-21)
Monday 15 May 2017
7:07PM EDT / Rogers Centre
Bartolo Colon (RHP 1-4 7.22 26K) v. Mike Bolsinger (RHP 0-1 3.18 4K)

Remember the dream I mentioned a week or so ago -- the one about Toronto running out nothing but scrubs, etc.? Sadly, JITHers, that terrible fate is nearly upon our Blue Jays. Good grief.

Of Note: UTL Steve Pearce is off to Florida to play shuffleboard with the rest of the starting line-up. It's lovely this time of year, Dunedin, which might explain the DL epidemic. RP Leonel Campos has been recalled from Buffalo because surely as long as he sits idly in the bullpen he cannot get injured. Right? RIGHT?!

Also Of Note: Tonight's game is MLB-TV's "free game o' the day"! Have at 'er, ye skinflints.
