138 down… 24 to go.
As the Blue Jays chase down another AL East pennant, you might want to stock up on things like Aspirin, and get a new stress ball to squeeze.
If last night’s game in the Bronx is any indication of what’s to come, Jays fans are in for a wild ride.
Let me take you back to the 9th inning Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium where Toronto scored 2 runs off New York closer Dellin Betances.
The Jays loaded the bases with one out, and after Kevin Pillar struck out, Justin Smoak hit a hit and deep fly ball to left field.
Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner tracked it all the way to the wall and made a leaping catch to rob Smoak of extra bases and the potential game winning hit.
Even though Toronto lost, that’s a roller coaster I don’t mind riding from time to time.
You know the famous saying — the thrill of victory and agony of defeat.
The highs and lows is what makes sports unpredictable and fun.
But with huge series upcoming against the Red Sox, Orioles and even the hated Yanks, I’m hoping for more ups than downs on Toronto’s ride to the playoffs.
