There are two teams in a race for the worst record in baseball and the number one draft position in 2019. Seven of the Jays next ten games are against these two teams. In case you didn't know, the teams are the KC Royals and the Baltimore Orioles. In between the Jays go to Yankee Stadium for three games.

With the Jays starting their Buffalo battery in tonight's game, an early start to the series thread seems to be in order. If you are giving a major league debut to a pitcher, having him start against the Royals is not a bad way to do it. The lineup he faces will be better than those he has seen in Buffalo, but not by that much. SRF then gets to face the Yankees in Yankee Stadium on Saturday, before facing the Phillies back home, assuming all goes to plan.

It is the middle of August and this qualifies as a "playing out the string" game. Both the Rays and Jays were active in trading away some of their prized assets in July so the remainders will take the field tonight.

From the pre-game chatter, Marcus Stroman will test his finger today to see if he can pitch on Sunday. Giiby has gone on the record, again, as saying if there is going to be a full rebuild he needs to get out of here so he is making it easy for the front office to get rid of him, if they want to. Gibby might have been saving his major league manager money over the last few years and will be happy to go home and sit on the porch.

The Jays are in a Seattle for a road and home series. All the talk in the media will be about the Canadians invading from the north.

The Jays have a new player, one Mike Hauschild who was in the Astros system until recently. Per Gibby Hauschild is a starter but the Jays didn't want to put him right in there so Clippard will start and then Hauschild will come in.

The rested Orioles arrive into town to visit the rested Blue Jays. The Jays ended the first half* with too many relievers and too few position players. This happened because Kevin Pillar and Lourdes Gurriel went on the DL just before the break. Ryan Tepera came back from the DL and today Richard Urena has been recalled to fill Gurriel's spot. The Jays will likely see several other moves over the next seven days. Marco Estrada and Ryan Borucki will be back. Danny Barnes and Aaron Sanchez might be not too much behind them. And hopefully Gurriel will be back soon.
