Being a Blue Jays starting pitcher must feel pretty good these days.

Are you talking about the Texas Rangers? [A brief history on that team here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWnV45BXMCE). As you can see they're not perfect.

They're also a [little off when it comes to throwing the baseball](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqrOFMb46Vk), but they're a major league baseball team with a lot to be proud of! *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically.

Rockterrace

I feel if anything is a concern right now its that the bullpen is giving up a lot of homers but the big leads have been making them not seem like a big deal


flippingwilson

No homers tonight.


Lebucheron707

Well, there was the one…


FunLing33

With this win, the Jays have clinched a .500+ season!


Sam7sung

Kinda interesting that Montoyo didn't sub any position players. I agree with it, this is a massive series

Grinding down the bullpen?

Manoah is the man.

Manoah for Prime Minister!

It would have been hilarious if Meadows had chugged 2 waters Voit style and it became a thing.


PobodyNerfect

Lol

Tie game or give the team the lead? Nope. You don't do it. You just don't do it. But down by several in the 9th? Do the Voit.

Beautiful. Great job fans. You're fantastic and see you in the next thread!

Stay winning Jays 😎


NeilMcbeal_NavySeal

The beatings will continue until wild card lead improves.


RebeeMo

We only struck out twice all game. Everything else was contact. I'll take that

Omg Bo 😂😂

It wouldn't be a real game against the Rays if they didn't score late and ruin something.

Oh well, the shutout doesn't mean anything at the end of the day. Only the playoffs do.


JunkePlayerlol

Out of curiosity, if this isnt the situation for borucki then when is the proper situation for him? A close game late?


Longcoolwomanblkdres

Long arm? Idk


[deleted]

What a tease


readittty

Not sure if the Rays would want to play with us again if we didn’t let them have at least 1

"That's on Montoyo" Fuck outta here.

Meadows you piece of human shit.

Come on Anderson Cooper, everyone wants to go to bed

Closing in on 3 hours here!

It actually hasn't felt long. But I guess that's what happens when the jays mash. I can watch it all night.


GarfsLatentPower

trev, cant forget who you're pitching to bud


littlethoughts8

Cool of Meadows to talk to ball boy


ResponsibilityOk6636

Y’all so ungrateful


half-mage

Better for Richards to give a homerun now than a one run game down the line.


JaneDundas

Who cares 🙄

Crowd really upset that he yucked the yum lol

The most rays thing ever. Bombing one after the catcher drops the foul tip strike 3.


RebeeMo

Nooooooooooo

Lol


tbclandot92

There goes the shutout feel like that has happened a few times with 2 outs in the 9th lol.

Just needed a little of that Blue Jays bullpen flavour, to make it feel authentic. No big.

Richards will be fine to pitch tomorrow

itsnursehoneybadger

GIVE IT TO ME, ANDERSON COOPER!


Younan88

It’s 8-0 against at the first place Rays and Ryan Yarbrough who we always struggle with but you donkeys still find something to complain about


VesaAwesaka

8-1


Younan88

Well this changes everything! I’m done with Montoya!


ayasofya02

That's our silver fox with the changeup


bowl_of_khalv_kalash

Gerard Dyson?


SolizeMusic

I guess if Trevor keeps the pitch count low he'd be fine tomorrow


TheobromineC7H8N4O2

He only pitch 14 in his last 5, it was a reasonable bet he'd be available tomorrow with a normal inning.


FinalMalus

Classy of the Rays coach. Brandon Hyde would've rubbed his own shit on the ball before tossing it into our dugout


FunLing33

Damn. The Rays didn't bring use Arozerna, B Lowe or Zunino. I'm kinda surprised that they didn't use them since they're big power threats.


ImthaDatsyukian

Nobody can touch Manoah when he’s on


moe3m

These are our blue jays


jays1998

Don't know why we're burning Richards here but f it


33dogs

Is it weird that I don't get worried when a ball is hit to Teo?


PlatinumTaq

YES teo gets his 5-5 baseball!


baconperogies

Loving that closure


cyclingkingsley

super quick inning so Richard can pitch again next game


IcyOrdinary1

He shouldn’t be in the game in the first place.


h8omb

Teoscar simply cannot miss right now


lilaj48692

Teo says “not on my watch” 😤


dhgrainger

PSA: The responsible move is to use a reliever to close the game out. Yeah, seeing a CG from Manoah would be neat. But seeing him hurt himself stretching for a CG would be absolutely awful. He's in his first Major League season. The fact that he hasn't been shut down already is amazing enough.


blazinrainbo

Absolutely, just the choice of reliever is weird. Should be one of the lower totem pole guys not someone who has earned leverage.


TheobromineC7H8N4O2

Merryweather pitched yesterday, Thornton went 49 yesterday, Pearson went two 2 games ago and Saucedo did 44 pitches 3 games ago. So the low leverage guys are probably still on rest. Richards is pretty rested and the 4th on the leverage chart plus pitched 14 in the last 5 games. So looking at the reliever rest chart he looks like the most expendable inning at tonight.


blazinrainbo

Borucki coming off injury, you arent always guaranteed a good spot to ease him back in. But i will agree that Richards probably needed the work.


TheobromineC7H8N4O2

Yeah, I didn't see that Borucki was in for Thornton. It was a good spot for him to get his first work so he'd be the one I'd look to. Even if I don't have a problem with using Richards knowing you had Romano, Cimber and Mayza with a lot of rest for tomorrow, plus Pearson and Merryweather are looking like they are getting rust off.


95teetee

Brett Phillips should demand a trade. I don't like liking a Rays player.


Par25

They rubbed covid all over the ball


wintermute--

Max Scherzer yesterday: 8 IP, 1H, 9 SO, on 92 pitches Alek Manoah today: 8 IP, 1H, 10 SO, on 97 pitches


visualdynasty

Brett Phillips was so excited he didn’t have to see Manoah anymore lol


Anthropoly

We don't have the luxury of having a reliable bullpen. Why would Montoyo use one of his three only reliable relievers for an already won 8-0 game


RebeeMo

Good stuff, Rays dugout!


BetterCallStral

Thank you God for Teo's long lanky legs


DanielTigerr

Lanky? His legs are fucking tree trunks. But yeah, he can run.


BetterCallStral

I guess they just look very lean to me. So lanky probably the wrong L word.... Lean tree trunks? either way, yay for them!


IcyOrdinary1

Dont get why montoyo is using one of our better relievers here, we may need richards the next 2 nights, don’t waste him here. Put in thornton or borucki. Not a big deal but just dumb things montoyo does.


h8omb

Thornton's not there. If you want to be consistently negative, you really need to be super accurate or you just end up looking kinda dumb.


IcyOrdinary1

By thornton I meant a worse/ low leverage reliever. If he is not there fine, but someone in that category. Don’t think thats being negative, its a dumb play by the manager but the jays won so all is good!


InsaneGenis

They farted on it


skysone

Immature af but I still laughed 😶


tbclandot92

Props to the rays coach for giving the ball back.


95teetee

Later on ebay: *Actual* baseball that Teoscarnandez got his 5th hit with.


DanielTigerr

Lanares likes his mufongo.


Cock-PushUps

Nothing would bring me greater happiness then dusting the rays like this for 2 more nights


mmss

this isn't the time to throw in your bottom bullpen guys. Masterful start by Manoah, ton of hits by the offense, now crush them with the closer. Destroy their confidence for the rest of the games.


mark_oh_pollo

Richards has been solid lately


mmss

that was my point


mark_oh_pollo

Oh, took it the other way


mmss

no worries! jays win!!


PussyonToast

Charlie a bitch for stealing a complete game gem from him


littlethoughts8

Why put extra pitches on his arm in a blowout? Keep him fresh, we are going for title not individual honours.


RebeeMo

Okay, Sports Anime Protagonist, you're up!


deafpoet

Some people really nostalgic for the good old days of 60 years ago when pitchers went the distance every time.


blazinrainbo

Uhhhh, Shouldnt it be one of the "low" leverage guys? Soria/Merry/Nate/Borucki/Sauce?


rangerxt

yes

mdubyo

Frank Catalanotto....singles to left!


visualdynasty

Why use Richards and not Merryweather or Castro, in case we need him tomorrow?


lifeoflovehealing

Maybe he wanted to pitch being his former team


FunLing33

I'm guessing Richards is here to avoid getting rusty when we need him right?


baconperogies

I guess they really want to keep that pitch count down.


OtisKaplan

I wanted to see a complete game…..i bet Alek wanted to pitch one


ea12345

Guys Manoah is still a rookie and we are up by 8 and at 97pitches. Don't mind the pull


FinalMalus

Sportsnet's doing our young legend so dirty with that action shot


lilaj48692

We have a 8-0 lead we can use Borucki why are we bringing Richards my gosh


StonedJaysFan

This lineup #fucks


runningwithquills

Could we not have used Borucki? Super low-leverage situation


cyclingkingsley

agree with this. that guy hasnt pitched for a while this would have helped him ease back into action


lilaj48692

Totally agree


Tw1sterxxx

Alright Tom Cruise from Collateral, let’s close this thing out


DanielTigerr

Im fine with Richards. Pen is rested. Cant put in a soup can who walks a few guys, you blink its 8-5 and we are puckering with high leveraging guys needing to warm up.


stackofbaconpancakes

Alright Trevor Easy 1-2-3 here


11th_Plague

Silver haired fox incoming


josh89rea

He is so dumb Holy shit. This is perfect for Merryweather/Pearson/Borucki. But let's take out Manoah at 97 pitches and put in our 4th best guy. Notice how the rays used Anderson in low leverage


youneverknow44

It’s not. Relax and enjoy the game.


father-kazuma

trevor richards gonna pitch to his former team


wintermute--

ahahaha they used Manoah's death slider in the montage


RyeAbc

It's like someone plugged in a game genie into the Jays clubhouse.


leafs81215

Don’t worry about Manoah, no need to overtax our starters at this point. He was up near 100 pitches. If there were 0 hits though.. I wouldn’t be so understanding.


ResponsibilityOk6636

You guys act like you’re in the dugout chatting with Alek about how he feels lol. This isn’t a fairytale, maybe his arms tired???


ZodiacBlakeWheeler

Gibby would have left him in…
