Tampa at Toronto - April 28-30

The Jays limp home looking for their first back to back wins of the season. I am sure they would settle for winning two of three in this series without winning back to back. The bats are a little better than they were but not firing on all cylinders. The pitching is hit and miss, now its the bullpen that's coughing up games. This is the last weekend of April, May arrives on Monday. Slow April's can be recovered from, but the team needs to get off to a good May start and they can get ready for that by playing well against the Rays.

The pitching matchups are:

Friday: Blake Snell vs Stroman

Saturday: Matt Andriese vs Liriano

Sunday: Chris Archer vs Sanchez

The Jays will be in tough vs the Rays who are 11-12 but have one of the best defenses in the league. All three Tampa starters in the series have ERA's in the three's.

We should get updates on the injured threesome of Donaldson, Tulowitzki and Happ now that the team is back home.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been DFA'd, Luke Maile is his replacement.

Is there a light at the end of the tunnel, or is it a train?
