no. 40 2017: Braves (14-21) at Blue Jays (17-22)

Tuesday 16 May 2017
4:07PM EDT / Rogers Centre
Jaime Garcia (LHP 1-2 4.33 21K) v. Marco Estrada (RHP 2-2 3.12 53K)

Ouch. Double gut-punch Monday: both the Senators and the Blue Jays had their bottoms spanked.

The good news? No one got hurt. Hooray for small mercies!

Of Note: RP Leonel Campos has shuffled off to Buffalo. Again. Poor bastard. Meanwhile, OF Darrell Ceciliani -- he of the glorious .145/.188/.158 slash line -- is en route to Toronto, presumably to walk dogs, run errands and so on for busy teammates. Stop by "Pizzeria Libretto" while out n' about, Darrell -- it's quite tasty. Might as well enjoy yourself, is the point.
