no. 82 2017: Blue Jays (37-44) at Yankees (43-37)

Monday 3 July 2017
7:05 PM EDT / Yankee Stadium
Marcus Stroman (RHP 8-4, 3.41 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 84 Ks) v.
Masahiro Tanaka (RHP 6-7, 5.56 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 90 Ks)

Ellsbury at DH? Who thought we'd ever see that? SOSH's favourite punching bag is all growned up. I want what Girardi's smoking.

Of Note:  Goins instead of Tulo at shortstop, which probably makes sense with Stro on the mound and that short porch. Zeke in center should be fun. Hopefully Stro keeps the ground balls going.

Sparkman has been released and Bolsinger is up. Gotta have someone to take a few innings if necessary. Ian Parmley to Buffalo. And then there's this:
In the Jays fans are awesome dept: Smoak won his All-Star spot by over half a million votes with 2,566,181.
