The Blue Jays are Going to Catch the Yankees – Toronto vs. New York

After a three game sweep of the Yankees, the Blue Jays are now only 1.5 games back in the race for the AL East.  Re-energized since the trade deadline, it seems only a matter of time now before the Jays finally catch up. Since 1993, the last time the team made the playoffs, the Blue Jays have been waiting for an opportunity like this. In a down year for much of the AL East, Toronto is subsequently at its most formidable, most dangerous.

A dominating offense, fantastic home field advantage (36-21) and solid bullpen pitching, could mean a season that doesn’t end in September for this team.

With the additions of David Price and Troy Tulowitzki, the Jay’s have gained that ‘spark’ every ball club looks to takeaway from the trade deadline. A bonafide ace is just what the doctor ordered for a team in need of starting pitching, and a short stop with game breaking talent doesn’t hurt either. It’s hard to imagine, but the scariest offense in baseball just got better.

If the most recent series between the Yanks and Jays is any indication, New York should start to feel the heat as the end of the 2015 season draws near. Standing pat at the trade deadline, while their biggest competition reloaded, doesn’t have the Yankees in a great situation moving forward.

Look for Toronto to close the gap over the next half dozen games. With another three game series coming up, this time at Toronto, it’s likely the AL East will have a new division leader – sooner rather than later. When it comes to baseball in October, look for the Jays to make a  splash.
