This is the end

Of our elaborate plans,
The end
Of everything that stands,
The end

Neither team has much to play for. I suppose Tampa would like to get to 90 wins, I suppose the Jays would like to avoid 90 losses. It doesn't really matter.  Ryan Borucki matches up with Blake Snell for the second time in a week; he drew Chris Sale earlier this month. Borucki has made 4 September starts, pitched at least 6 innings in all four, given up exactly 3 hits in all four. He's gone 1-2, 1.98 and tonight he gets Blake Snell. The Jays have scored 2 runs or less in eight of his sixteen starts. Gosh, son. What did you do?

In an ideal world, you'd probably split Borucki and Pannone in the rotation, and not have the opposition see them on consecutive days. For the moment, I can't imagine anyone cares.

Fri 7:10 - Pannone (4-1, 3.58) vs Glasnow (1-5, 4.11)
Sat 6:10 - Borucki (4-5, 3.76) vs Snell (21-5, 1.90)
Sun 3:10 - Estrada (7-14, 5.64) vs TBA

Let's get this over with. I've got the Report Card to finish, although by now it's mainly a matter of Finalizing some Numbers. But please Gibby, don't use either Guerrieri or Leiter twice this weekend. I'm happy with both missing my playing time cutoff.
