    So the playoffs changed this year....
    No more one game showdowns...
    It will be Cleveland hosting 3 in Cleveland against whoever finishes i#6 or 3rd WC spot.
    Then its the winner of the WC race #4 vs the 2nd place team #5 with the 1st place team hosting all 3.

    Then its
    #1 Houston vs Winner of #4 vs #5
    #2 Wankees vs Winner of #3 vs #6

    Us vs Astros...

    These Blue Jays have the Yanks numba! Great win. I wouldn't even be that concerned having to face them, knowing how well we've played them of late. Go Jays!

    The first of nine games against the Blue Jays nemisis the Tampa Bay Rays goes tonite.
    I hate the Rays because they play good fundamental baseball while seemingly owning us like we the Orioles..
    They turn double plays. They get bunts down and runners get over.
    These are areas where Blue Jay teams dating back to the 80's traditionally don't do well.
    The tradition continues with this squad as well.
    They want to beat you with their bats and play for the big inning.
    The September run for the pennant is on and we are in it....

    Hoping we get at least a 5-4 split with Tampa.

    When he's swinging the bat like he has been, he can field however he likes. Haha
    I know.... thats the thing.... His bat is top tier.
    But he just doesn;t have the arm to play SS.
    Lots of extra outs you cant afford to give away the farther you go ......
    Second base and another vacuum cleaner type infielder like Chapman at short who hits 250.... maybe that kid Orlevis Martinez is ready.
    Or they buy one in FA.
    Or trade some of the talent they have in the minors to get a good young one.

    Love Bo... He is a cornerstone of the team... but everyone is better served if he transitions to 2nd...

    Jays are going to have to address Bo Bichette's anemic infield defense in the off season.
    Either a move to 2nd is in the offing or their has to be a dramatic improvement over this seasons performance.
    The team can't win the AL East let alone the AL with a below.average fielding shortstop. Well below average.

    If we can nab Ohtani or Soto, a part of me says sell the farm.

    But also, I don't know .. the Yankees are so damn good, and just got better, maybe we just let them win it this year and see whats there this summer.

    Post Charlie the Blue Jays are on a 8 and 1 run.
    Same guys.
    Something went sideways in the clubhouse or the Jays front offfice just felt it was time to move on from Charlie to a different style of manager as this is a win now club.

    Jays need arms at the deadline.
    They won't empty the farm system for bullpen arms so I think we see a bit of an airlift.
    A Starting Pitcher would be gold. It will cost a Moreno or O.Martinez. Depending on who it is... I am in .. This is a realy really good team when they hit.They got a chance.

    How is no one talking about how the Jays just scored 40 runs in a Series sweep, with a 28-5 annihilation of everybodies (least) favourite, Boston Red Sox.
    Good times never seemed so good. So good, so good, so good....

    Good start...
    Bit of a slump right now.
    No bats.
    When the bats turn on again, and they will, all the other stuff goes away.
    Except the bull pen.. need some more arms.

    Our boys at the top of the AL right now. Love to see it. Got a legit team this year.
    Am quite liking what's happening with the BJs. The white collar crew are doing a surprisingly good job too getting/making some good acquisitions. There seems to be a diamond catcher in Buffalo seeking a spot on the big team (Moreno) ... imagine him raking with the rest. A very likable team too.

    Not a bad Saturday with the Raps & Jays eh?
