Man, this year’s playoff run by the Blue Jays has been fun to watch, hasn’t it?
Toronto chewed up and spat out the Rangers in 3 games, sweeping their ALDS against top seeded Texas.
The Jays blew away the Rangers in Game 1, outgunned the again in Game 2, and then won a back and forth nail biter in Game 3.
The Bluebirds did it with big hits, great pitching, and tremendous defence, mixed in with a flair for the dramatic.
And it hasn’t been one or two players who have stood out for Toronto.
Almost every player who’s been on the field over the last three games has had a big moment.
It’s a great sign, knowing that at any moment any player has the ability to step up and make a big contribution.
You can say the same for the Blue Jays opponent in the ALCS, the Cleveland Indians.
The Tribe is coming off an improbable sweep of the Red Sox after smothering Boston’s heavy hitting lineup.
I know there are some interesting story lines with Jays president Mark Shapiro and GM Ross Atkins facing their former team.
But the main headline, at least in this part of the world, is can Toronto finally get back to the World Series?
If both the Jays and Indians continue to play like they have been, your guess is as good as mine.
