Hey Blue Jays fans, how are you feeling these days?
Yah, that’s what I thought… not anything that I can repeat on the radio.
Toronto stormed into September in first place in the AL East but after getting scalded 8-1 at home against the Rays on Wednesday the Bluebirds find themselves in a battle for a playoff spot.
The Jays have lost four consecutive series, their bats have gone cold, their rotation has been shaky and the bullpen is leaky.
After falling to 3-and-9 this month, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, “I’ve got to believe we’re at rock bottom, I don’t see how much lower it could go.”
Rock bottom would be the last place Twins or Braves but I get what Gibby is saying.
After Toronto visits the Angels for four games and the Mariners for three, they end the season by hosting the Yankees and Orioles and visiting the division leading Red Sox.
Their destiny is still very much in their hands.
But if they don’t snap out of their late season slump that destiny will evapourate into history.
