By the time we get to Phoenix... 

Hey, not many people know that song was written by Melania Trump.

The two teams split a pair of games at the RC last month, as I recklessly returned from my self-imposed exile to start a Game Thread. (Ohmigawd, he's doing it again! We're doomed! Doomed, I say!)  This is another two game set and as such gives me a chance to ease the burden so bravely borne by 2JBrumfield and Eephus. A split, and I can carry on, ya see.

The Snakes have recalled Zack Godley to start tonight's affair - he's a big RH who was acquired from the Cubs in the Miguel Montero deal. He made his ML debut last season and did very well (5-1, 3.19), but some injury woes set him back this spring. He's an unknown quantity to most of the Blue Jays, although Troy Tulowitzki did homer in his only AB against him. LH Patrick Corbin takes the ball tomorrow - the Jays saw him last month in Toronto, when he scattered 9 hits and 3 BB in 6.1 IP to beat Marco Estrada 4-2.

Chris Colabello, eligible to return to the major leagues on Saturday, went 2-4 with a HR in his first game for Buffalo. And the Blue Jays will definitely be making a roster move at some point to activate Marco Estrada.


Sanchez (9-1, 2.97) vs Godley (2-0, 5.28)
Estrada (5-3, 2.93) or Stroman (7-4, 5.15) vs Corbin (4-8, 5.25)

A sweep would be nice. But they are on the road. And I did start the thread. Be happy with a split.
