Given the way the Blue Jays played over the final two weeks of the regular season, it seemed highly unlilely they’d be able to come home from Texas up 2-0 in their American League Division Series against the Rangers. Many fans would have been happy with a split, given the daunting task of facing Cole […]
We’re currently under three hours from first pitch in The Rematch of the Century between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers in the American League Division Series, so now seems like an appropriate time to scatter about some thoughts on the upcoming five-game set.

Much like the above sentence, there has been a great deal of emotionally-driven nonsense spouted about the Jays’ inactivity prior to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.

(Thanks Amazin’ Avenue!) Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeere’s Dickey! I know, his velocity cancels out whatever fear batters have when they see that face, but based on how the Sox played last night, I’m sure every team they play induces Shelley Duvall looks of all kinds.
A blowout one night, a walkoff the next. What will tonight’s game have in store as the Blue Jays look to sweep away the New York Yankees?
The sky has stopped falling. At least for one day, after the Blue Jays thumped the chasing New York Yankees 8-3 last night. Tonight, the Blue Jays will look to do something they haven’t done in nearly three weeks.
The Derek Jeter Farewell Tour (Featuring Carlos Beltran, The Ghost of C.C. Sabathia, and the rest of the cast of the Expendables) rolls into the Skydome looking to wrestle the division lead away from the suddenly-reeling Blue Jays.
