Red Sox vs. Blue Jays lineup: Will the Fister famine continue, or is it hot Doug time?

I regret nothing. Doug Fister (6.75 ERA) takes the mound this afternoon for the grinding Red Sox (54-42) who look to win their third game in a row against the Blue Jays (43-51) on a getaway day today at Fenway Park (1:35 p.m., NESN). He’ll be matched by lefty Francisco Liriano (6.04 ERA), which, along with the afternoon start time, tweaks the lineup to accommodate both a platoon and Dustin Pedroia DH day. I’d write more but, like you, I am at work, futzing away my time on Over the Monster, and must run. Here are the full lineups:

Wednesday Bantering: Francisco Liriano expected to start Thursday

Your morning update for everything Blue Jays. Francisco Liriano, who left his last start early with neck and back spasms, is expected to start on Thursday in Toronto’s final game against the Boston Red Sox, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet tweets. Against Detroit, Liriano pitched just two full innings. After the game, he told media that his neck spasms had begun while he warmed up and continued to progress as the game started. Liriano, a free agent after this season, is a key piece that Toronto may consider trading prior to the July 31st trade deadline. The Yankees acquired Todd Frazier, David...

Blue Jays: Trade chips have next to no value

The Blue Jays had another poor start from their rotation on Sunday, getting just 3.2 innings from Marco Estrada before he had to be removed. With both he and Francisco Liriano having terrible outings this weekend, their already compromised trade value took another hit. The Blue Jays have had an incredibly frustrating season in 2017, […] Blue Jays: Trade chips have next to no value - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Blue Jays: Biagini shouldn’t go back to the rotation

With Francisco Liriano having to exit the game on Saturday with tightness in his neck, his status will be up in the air for his next start and beyond. If they need another starter, they should leave Joe Biagini right where he is in the bullpen. Once again, the Blue Jays may be in need […] Blue Jays: Biagini shouldn’t go back to the rotation - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

It started badly, but ended worse, Jays lose to Tigers

It started badly, but ended worse, Jays lose to Tigers

Blue Jays 1 Tigers 11 That started bad.....and got worse as it went on. Francisco Liriano had trouble finding the strike zone early. To be fair, the plate umpire seemed to be having troubles figuring out where it should be. Liriano gave up a run in the first, a run in the second and then the wheels came off in the third. He gave up 3 straight walks, to start off the third and it quickly became apparent that something was wrong, and he left the game. It came out later that it was ‘neck tightness’. Not sure that he’ll end up on the DL. Mike Bolsinger came in with the bases loaded, no...

Early mistakes costly for Blue Jays starter Francisco Liriano

Early mistakes costly for Blue Jays starter Francisco Liriano

After a slow start on Saturday, all was not lost for Blue Jays starter Francisco Liriano. But giving up four runs in the first two innings was all the damage the Red Sox would need with their ace, Chris Sale, on the mound.

Sale’s good, Jays aren’t

Sale’s good, Jays aren’t

Red Sox 7 Blue Jays 1 That wasn’t fun, but, it didn’t take 4 hours and 40 minutes....always look on the bright side of life. Chris Sale was Chris Sale. 7 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk and 11 strikeouts. We aren’t hitting and Sale is great....a bad combination. Justin Smoak had half our hits, against Sale, and our only extra base hit. Ryan Tulowitzki and Ryan Goins had our other hits. Josh Donaldson had a particularly back day, going 0 for 4 with 4 strikeouts. In the 9th, Steve Pearce hit a solo homer. Barney followed with a single, but too little too late Francisco Liriano wasn’t...
