The Toronto Blue Jays seemed to be at home when they played the Seattle Mariners in Seattle. The vast majority of the fans were wearing Blue Jays paraphernalia. Toronto needed their support to win a vital series, which they did two games to one. Many of the Blue Jays fans in attendance were from British Columbia. The Blue Jays organization owe their B.C. fans some love for coming out in huge numbers to watch the games in Seattle.
The Blue Jays must have felt at home despite hitting in the top of the innings. Mariner game 3 starter King Felix Hernandez was very demonstrative that is was the Mariners house after getting the last out in the seventh inning. The Mariners have no chance at catching the Blue Jays due to the series win. They were able to use the momentum and return home to face the New York Yankees in a four game series.
The Blue Jays despite a poor performance in the last game of the Yankees series. The Jays were able to win three out of four and keep the first Wild Card spot going into their three game series against the Baltimore Orioles. Manager John Gibbon’s team also hold the tie breaker with the Orioles.
The Yankees have been officially eliminated after being dominated by the Blue Jays in my books. New York is five games out with six remaining. Absolutely no way are they going to make the playoffs this season. The young Yankees team will be in the playoffs within two years..
The Blue Jays have a simple task, which is not to get swept by the Orioles. The Blue Jays are in control of their destiny and need to win one game to be guaranteed minimum a tie with the Orioles after the final game between them this season September 29, 2016. The magic number could be 88 and 89 wins to get the Wild Card spots this season.
The Boston Red Sox are one win away from being crowned American League East Champion.
Can the Blue Jays keep their Wild Card spot?
Have a fantastic day!
