This is not the time of the baseball season to fold the tent and pack it away for the winter.
But after dropping 2 of 3 games at the Dome against the Orioles, it feels like Toronto is on a downward spiral.
What a difference a couple of days makes.
Jays fans were sky high after the team nearly swept the Yankees and took the first game of their big three game series against Baltimore.
But it was the way the Bluebirds lost the last two games against the O’s that has baseball fans north of the border concerned.
The bats have gone silent and that’s not good news heading into their final series of the season this weekend in Boston against the AL East champion Red Sox.
Tied with Baltimore for the top AL wild card spot, the Jays have to start swinging the lumber like we know they’re capable of doing.
And if the bats don’t get going, it’ll be up to Marco Estrada, J.A. Happ and Aaron Sanchez to do their job against the Bo Sox.
The good news is the Jays are still 1.5 ahead of Detroit and 2 up on Seattle, so I think winning at least one game in Boston will ensure Toronto a playoff spot.
The bad news is if the Jays falter, dare I say get swept at Fenway, the Tigers play the Braves and the Mariners play the A’s… two of the worst teams in the majors.
Fingers crossed the planets align for TO.
