Red Sox at Blue Jays lineup: What do you even say any more?

It’s a puzzler.

The Red Sox (81-34), who cannot mathematically finish below .500 on the season no matter how hard they care to try, face the Blue Jays (51-62), who likely will finish below .500, when they finish off a three-game set in Toronto (7:07 P.M., NESN) that the Sox seek to sweep. Yeah buddy.

About tonight’s game: Rick Porcello (14-4, 3.84 ERA), coming off his motherfucking masterpiece, looks to pick it back up against lefty Ryan Borucki (1-2, 2.30 ERA) and a hopefully beaten-down Toronto team. Steve Pearce is back in against the lefty, because life is beautiful, and that’s basically it for worthwhile information. Oh and Rafael Devers is out.

About last night’s game: More of the same, as the Sox won 10-5 to run their latest winning streak to 1 games. Read Matt’s recap here.

Forecast: 81 degrees with a chance of severe thunderstorms, so I think we’re gettin’ domed on this one.

Today’s reading: Remember last month when I said this was the best Sox team I’ve ever seen? I do.
