GameThread Game #53: Padres at Blue Jays

Another (potential) *major league debut alert* Yesterday wasn’t fun, but today is a new day. If we could hold the Padres to single digit runs, that would be a good start. The Blue Jays have called up Jacob Waguespack, who was the return in the trade for Aaron Loup. He may make his major league debut against the team he was traded from. Waguespack currently has a 5.86 ERA in 9 starts for AAA Buffalo, so hasn’t really done anything to warrant a call-up. Justin Shafer was also in the clubhouse today but he isn’t active. I wonder if Waguespack is only here in case Stroman has a short...

Game #53 Preview: Erlin vs Stroman

Padres (28-24) vs Blue Jays (20-32) The Blue Jays will fondly bid farewell to the Padres this afternoon, but first they need to try to avoid the 3 game sweep. Today’s finale gets underway at 1:07 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter The Blue Jays will turn to Marcus Stroman to try and stop the bleeding. Stroman brings his 2-6 record with a 2.81 ERA into this his 12th start on the season. While his ERA dropped in his last start thanks to allowing just 1 run in 6 innings, his FIP climbed from 3.00 to 3.36 thanks to some pretty ugly peripherals against the Red Sox. The lone home run he allowed came on...

Blue Jays give up 7 home runs and, surprise, lose

Padres: Many Many Blue Jays: Few That was a mess. The good moments: Lourdes Gurriel hit his second homer in two games back. Justin Smoak homered. Jonathan Davis made a really nice catch at the wall. Davis singled in the 8th and went to second when Josh Naylor bobbled the ball. Good baserunning and he scored on a single from Freddy Galvis. And Luke Maile pitched a scoreless 9th. And, well, the game ended. The bad? Everything. The pitching was dreadful: Edwin Jackson started and was hit hard and often. He fought his way through 4 inning. Allowed 7 hit, 7 earned, 1 walk, 2...

Padres (27-24) vs Blue Jays (20-31) After a lost battle yesterday, the Blue Jays and Padres get right back at it this afternoon in game two of their three game series. Gametime is 3:07 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter The Blue Jays will send MLB’s ultimate journeyman to the hill, Edwin Jackson, making his third start for this his MLB record 14th franchise. The first two haven’t gone overly well, as he currently sits with an 0-1 record and a 6.30 ERA over 10 innings.
