Another first place team? Give me a break.
The Jays have lost 10 of 13, and I'd like to blame most of that on the Dodgers, Braves, and Astros. They did lose 4 of 5 against Seattle in that stretch as well. But after these two in Atlanta, they get.. Tampa Bay for 4? Boston for 3? Yankees for 3? Yikes. Maybe 100 losses is back on the table. Oh wait... wait... I see a light at the end of the tunnel. It looks like a Baltimore Oriole. Six of them, flapping helplessly in the cellar...
On to Atlanta! The Jays should see the same two guys who started for the Braves in Toronto last week. As you will recall, they beat the guy who's really good and lost to the guy who's really not. Baseball, eh? I'm a little disappointed - I wanted to see Max Fried, the skinny southpaw who's managed to go 15-4 for Atlanta this year. I don't quite understand how. Oh well.
No roster moves to report yet, except the moves already made that no one mentioned yesterday (Neil Ramirez was Designated For Assignment, Ryan Tepera was activated from the 60 day IL, and Beau Taylor was added to the active roster.) I expect they're waiting for Buffalo and New Hampshire to finish their seasons before the rest of the call-ups. Then we'll see - oh, Richard Urena. Jonathan Davis, Justin Shafer, Thomas Pannone. Maybe Anthony Alford and Sean Reid-Foley. But that would be a lot of guys and I'd only want to bet on Urena (an infielder), Davis (Montoyo likes him) and Pannone (he's still left-handed.)
Mon 2 Sep - Waguespack (4-2, 3.93) vs Soroka (10-3, 2.44)
Tue 3 Sep - TBD vs Foltynewicz (4-5, 5.59)
