Next Game: @ Detroit |Tue Aug 19 @ 7:00pm ET/4:00pm PT | R. Romero vs M. Scherzer

After splitting the Oakland series and getting a day off, we christen a new GDT with the start of the 3-game set in Tampa to finish up the Jays' road trip.

Probables

Game 1: Tuesday @ 7pm ET/4pm PT
J.A. Happ (7-9)* vs James Shields (9-7)

Game 2: Wednesday @ 7pm ET/4pm PT
Henderson Alvarez (7-8) vs Alex Cobb (5-8)

Game 3: Thursday @ 1pm ET/10am PT
Ricky Romero (8-8)vs Matt Moore (8-7)

*Happ's record (courtesy ESPN) is obviously his full-season record, including his time in Houston. He has yet to factor into a decision in his time with the Blue Jays, sitting at 0-0 with one hold.

Glad we won't run into Price this time around.

Still don't have a good feeling about playing TB, hope the boys can string together a couple of wins.

Happ's starting now? Is this a trial run or just a single start then he goes back to the bullpen?

Management brought him in knowing that he would probably take a position in the rotation once one of the others falls out of favour. With Cecil optioned, and Alvarez probably on an innings cap, Happ will probably finish the season as a starter.

Some positive news for a change. Both Lawrie and Rasmus should be 100% and good to go tonight.

So I'll assume that with Rasmus coming back Sierra will be relegated to the bench again.

Not tonight atleast according to the lineup sheet. He's been better than Gose so far. If they're not going to use him (Gose), against righties, might as well send him back to AAA.

Davis (LF)
Rasmus
Encarnacion (1B)
Escobar
Cooper (DH)
Sierra (RF)
Johnson
Mathis
Hechavarria (3B)

Thank god they finally broke up Escobar and Johnson. I guess Lawrie isn't ready to go.

We avoided Carey Price at least, I guess that's a good thing.

Oh, and just watch a game winning HR go off one of those ****ing stupid catwalk rings.

Tampa gets two crappy weak hits and just like that, it's a run.

Of course.
