Interesting move in putting Ruiz in for Lind and moving Snider out. This does leave a better defensive team in with Overbay at first. This could come in handy in the later innings if the game is close (which it often is) Both Snider and Overbay have been struggling at the plate. I’m not sure if I agree with the call, because Overbay needs a wake up call. But if this pans out and we win tonight, I won’t complain about the move.

I agree, would have rather seen Ruiz in for Overbay…but at least Ruiz is getting a start, and a break won’t hurt Snider for sure.

Good question, who moves to the bottom of the lineup when Hill gets back? I say get Bautista out of there and let Gonzalez hit there untill he proves he can’t handle it

I love the idea of moving Ruiz in. Snider has certainly struggled (three times as many strikeouts as hits) and his confidence is going to be zero if he keeps up this pace. I think a day or two of watching will do him good. Plus, he’s nearly hitting below .100 now, and the Jays can’t just sit patiently waiting for him to snap out of it. Can’t wait for tonight’s game!
