A weekend set against the Angels. A 7-10 team so hopefully the Jays keep them sub-500 this weekend by winning at least 1 of the 4 games.

Alex Meyer is their 8th best prospect and goes on the hill tonight vs Mat Latos making his Jays debut after going 9 innings over 2 starts allowing 1 run 6 BB and 9 K's in AAA. Meyer in his 28 ML innings has walked 20 so this could be a very long night if the Jays are patient.

Saturday sees Casey Lawrence vs Tyler Skaggs (LHP)

Sunday is Marcus Stroman vs Jesse Chavez (yes, that one)

Monday sees Francisco Liriano vs Ricky Nolasco

If this was 2015 or 2016 I'd be rooting for a Jays sweep with that group of 4 pitchers going against them but now I'm hoping for a split. Sigh - lowered expectations. Lets hope the Jays get it going this weekend and work towards ending April on a high note (3 at Cardinals next, then 3 against the Rays in Toronto).
