Blue Jays Drop 4th Straight Series

The Toronto Blue Jays have picked a bad time to get cold. In the midst of quite possibly the best pennant race ever the Jays have lost their last 4 series and 7 of 10. The losing skid has taken them from a 2 game lead in the division to a 1 game lead for the second wild card and trailing 2 games in the division. The Jays had recently seen the team back at full health but the rigours of the strenuous MLB season seem to be catching up. Reigning American League MVP Josh Donaldson missed the most recent series again the Tampa Bay Rays but is expected back tonight in Lala land where the Blue Jays embark on a 4 game series with the Angels. The Blue Jays have nearly painted themselves into a corner with their recent woes as Boston, Baltimore and the New York Yankees remain hot. The Jays will need to come up big in the mini western road trip playing 3 in Seattle
After LA. These are the last games against opponents outside of the AL east and the Blue Jays will have to keep pace. With the bats being silenced for much of the month of September John Gibbons has been trying out a few different looks in the lineup. None of which has seemed to light a spark for this team that needs to catch fire. The Blue Jays will meet the Orioles and Yankees at home after the road trip and finish the season in Boston in what will hopefully be series finale that will determine the AL east champs. No matter what goes down over the remain few weeks of the season one thing is for sure. It’s going to be exciting!
