The Toronto Blue Jays are 20-4 in their last 24 games played this season, 38-24 this year, and hold a huge lead of the division over division rivals. In fact, their biggest lead of the division since 1985.
The question many ask is if they are for real. Are they contenders?
My answer is the safe one: no.
If they want to prove they are for real they need to make some noise in the post season. If they keep up their pace they absolutely could make a run for the world series this year. However, last year they were supposed to be world series favourites after their roster additions before the season started and they flat out sucked.
Let us not forget that the San Francisco Giants are good for a world series title every two years as well. They are the best team in the league right now at 40-21.
I absolutely hope the Blue Jays prove they are for real by making the post season and then making noise in it. It’s been a while since a Canadian baseball team has done such a thing.
