David Price makes his Toronto debut this afternoon

12 Comments

You have a few minutes to find a TV set which picks up the Twins-Jays game at 1pm Eastern if you want to see David Price make his debut for the Toronto Blue Jays.

It’s a day game because it’s a holiday in Canada. Which specific holiday it is depends on your province — this is pretty complicated, actually — but if you’re not in Canada it’s only important because it means afternoon baseball on a Monday, and that’s always a nice treat.

Price will face off against the Ervin Santana and a Twins team he has handled pretty well so far this season. On the year he’s 3-0 in three starts and has only given up three earned runs in 23 innings while striking out 20 and only walking five. Not a bad matchup for his first day on the job at the new office.
