Time to roll out this one again.

And since it's the M's, the time 38 years ago Buck got a double play at the Kingdome, out of those outs with a broken leg.

I had forgotten that play and injury with Buck, that was maybe the craziest, and most awesome, DP I have ever seen.

Some of you maybe just see Buck as an old man yelling at clouds but he was a hard-nosed baseball player - I was always a fan. And then of course, he managed the Jays for a while.

... and the less said about that the better. I don't think Buck is crazy, but he's way way way to ol'timey and misinforms viewers as a result. I think he has a good voice for the booth but boy oh boy could I have used less diatribes about what constitutes playing baseball "the right way" and man-crush fawning of Derek Jeter.

I couldn't disagree more. Buck is the best in the game. As a younger kid trying to get into baseball he helped me understand the game over the years and I love hearing his thoughts. Even recently with the Jays hot dogging and poor baserunning he didnt shy away to rip into it. There is a "right way" to play the game, and from that video you can tell he walked the talk.

Yeah I don't think Buck is as hardcore as some others.

I think he more stories though then he is telling. With the Jays he was on the downside of the career that started in the mid 70s and was mostly backing up Ernie Whitt in Toronto in the mid 80s. But was part of the 1985 team to get to the ALCS, and he somehow moved his way up from the broadcast to manager of the team for 2 years, and then back to manager.

That said I prefer him as color (as he was with Hughson in TSN days, and now again with Shulman).

It’ll be a sad day when Buck retires (which some think could be imminent).

His voice is the Jays, to me.

He's already suggested this might be his last year. His contract expires after this season.

Thank goodness they did the right thing. Hope Gurriel and Espinal are healthy, but regardless they’re going to be pinch hitters if anything. Good Moreno is there too. Logic prevailed.

Edit. Thought I seen Gurriel but it’s fine. JBJr is a good choice to settle the team down a bit.

Too bad Gueriel isnt able to go.

But it will all come down to pitching in the end.....as usual.

Should be a good series though, as short as it is.

Yeah...he went through a life altering experience, and clearly has a different perspective on things now.

He should do whatever it is that makes him the happiest.

Happy to hear him do this series if things are coming to an end in broadcast booth though, and hope like hell the Jays give him something to be giddy about.

The choice of Moreno over Zimmer is the best one I believe.

We may miss Zimmer’s wheels in a pinch run opportunity but the value of Moreno should outweigh that.

Holy fack the nerves are hitting!! Let’s go!

Lineup looks good to me. Might have flipped Tapia and Merrifield but that’s splitting hairs.

Jays are teasing that Edwin Encarnacion will be throwing out the first pitch. Nothing better to get the crowd going than the guy who walked off their only other home wildcard appearance

I take back my flipping Tapia for Merrifield comment. Upon further inspection, Tapia is 7 for 11 career against Luis Castillo

If you CPers watching today could kindly give us poor saps working the odd update that would be very appreciated. I’ll be following along here and twitter while I’m ‘working’ this afternoon.

What a lovely day for some afternoon ball!

I have been so restless the last couple days waiting for this game. So nervous. Going to have to crack a couple beers for this one. I already have goosebumps thinking about how loud the Rogers centre is going to be.

LFG!!!
