no. 33 2017: Indians (17-14) at Blue Jays (12-20)

Carlos Carrasco (RHP 3-2 2.18 39K) v. Mike Bolsinger (RHP 0-0 0.00 0K)

Everyone get that pent-up emotion re. Edwin out of their system last night? Hmmmm? Good.

This iteration of the Toronto Blue Jays -- the one existing in fact, not fan fiction (hellooo, Oakville!) -- faces a much stiffer challenge tonight in Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco. Considering the hand they've been dealt early on, if nothing else, these Jays deserve our undivided support.

Palate Cleanser: the itty-bitty tarsier (resembling a cross between a bat and a monkey) is Earth's lone wholly carnivorous primate. So, there.
