LIVE Toronto Blue Jays Game Chat: Game 8

Jays From the Couch is proud to bring you our LIVE Game Chat as the Blue Jays open up a series against the New York Yankees.

 

The Toronto Blue Jays welcome the New York Yankees to town for the first time in 2016. Our very own, Wade Black, got you set up for this series with the preview. He breaks down the key matchups and players to watch, so it is highly recommended reading. Aaron Sanchez will take the bump tonight in the hopes of starting this series off better than the previous one against the Red Sox. It will be a good test for him as the Yankees send an experienced, patient group of hitters to challenge him.

While it is still very early in the season, this series will certainly go a long way to sorting out the identity of the Blue Jays squad, if not for themselves then for the fans who watch them. The club has not been able to establish a form of consistency just yet, which has some fans frustrated, confused, or some combination of the above.

The purpose of having this chat room option is to grow a community of Blue Jays (and baseball) fans. Plain and simple. Because this is new for our site, there are bound to be growing pains, but it is something that we are excited about doing and hoping will grow as we progress through the season.

While we are happy to facilitate a space where Blue Jays fans can interact and share ideas, etc. it is important that we lay down some ground rules. It is unfortunate that we have to lay these out, but we all know how online interactions can go sometimes. That said common sense and decency are the expectation. Basically, here are our expectations:

  • Be respectful! Does that really need to be explained? Just in case: no derogatory comments about race, gender, sexuality, etc. We are not here to insult each other. Keep that in mind. It is great that you have a different perspective or thought on the goings on in Blue Jays Land, just make sure you share that respectfully. It’s that simple. It is logical to argue about ideas. That is welcome. As long as it stays about ideas. In fact, you should expect it to happen and be open to it. It is what makes baseball so great.
  • While teasing is bound to happen, especially when folks extol the virtues of Juan Francisco, please remember that we are not here to be insulting. Please keep contributions about baseball and Blue Jays and everyone goes home happy*.
    • *Disclaimer: Individual results may vary. JFtC accepts no responsibility for your satisfaction with the outcome of any game. There will be no Game Chat refunds issued. ;P
  • Any suggestions of violence (or the like) toward another commentor will not be tolerated.
  • We are allowing the sharing of links to facilitate deeper discussion. So, if you have an idea that Baseball Reference, Fangraphs or Brooks Baseball can back you up on, the link can be shared. However, spamming or promoting of other entities (including online streaming of games, etc) is not allowed. Sorry.
  • If you’re here to chat about another team, this likely isn’t the place for you.
  • The moderator of the chat reserves the right to delete comments, or even block users for what they deem as inappropriate conduct. Again, we’re all friends here, so if you act like it, you’ll be fine.
  • These rules are not debatable. If you break them, you will have to just accept what happens as a result. We want this to be a great place for Blue Jays fans to congregate. We want it to grow. We can only do that by ensuring everyone has a good time doing so.
