The 23-42 Blue Jays take on the 20-45 Orioles. The Orioles will be hoping for a sweep to get themselves out of being alone in last place in the division because, as we all know, misery loves company. Misery loves company could be the sub-heading for this series with both teams tanking 2019. This is the start of a 16 game stretch without an off-day for the Jays. After this three gamer, they play 13 against the Astros, Angels, Red Sox and Yankees so make hay against the Orioles guys.

The schedule looks like this:

Tuesday, 7:05, Trent Thornton vs. John Means

Wednesday, 7:05, Edwin Jackson vs. David Hess

Thursday, 7:05, Marcus Stroman vs. Gabriel Ynoa

The Orioles, like the Blue Jays, are cycling through players, seeing who might stick. You probably won't see Dwight Smith jr. who took on a wall last week and lost. He is on the IL.

Means, the Tuesday starter, is a lefty so Biggio sits and Vlad is the DH. Drury gets another game at 3B to build up his confidence, maybe? Speaking of building up confidence, Edwin Jackson gets a start against the Orioles to try and guarantee his pay check for another week or ten days. If he can't pitch well against the Orioles, the "we don't have anyone else" line might be retired so they can, you know, find someone else.

And remember all, they play these games for entertainment purposes, no wagering!
