    Can the Jays salvage their road trip? Jays/Royals July 10-12

    Toronto Blue Jays



    Vs

    KC Royals




    Friday July 10, 8:10

    Marco Estrada (6-4, 3.59 ERA) vs Danny Duffy (2-4, 5.14 ERA)

    Blue Jays: Estrada bounced back from a rough outing against Boston to surrender two runs over five innings against the Tigers in his last start. Estrada has allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts but has never faced the Royals in his career.

    Royals: Duffy has thrown into the seventh inning in two of his three starts since returning from the DL, with 11 strikeouts and just five walks. He is 0-2 with an 11.42 ERA in three career games against the Blue Jays.

    Saturday July 11, 2:10

    Mark Buehrle (9-5, 3.38 ERA) vs Chris Young (7-4, 2.89 ERA)

    Blue Jays: Buehrle was the victim of some shoddy defense in his last start -- as evidenced by four unearned runs against the White Sox -- but outside of that one little blip he has been on a roll. He's allowed two earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts.

    Royals:Young has allowed just seven runs over his past three starts, though he has lost two of his last four outings. He is 1-2 career against Tampa Bay, while current Rays players are hitting .278 against him all-time.

    Sunday July 12, 2:10

    Felix Doubront (1-0, 2.00 ERA) vs Edinson Volquez (8-4, 3.40 ERA)

    Blue Jays: Doubront earned himself a second start after allowing just one earned run over 6 2/3 innings vs the White Sox. He essentially controls his own fate and will continue starting as long as the numbers support it.

    Royals: Volquez has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last six starts, yielding one off a homer last Tuesday vs. the Rays. The Royals have won 12 of 17 games with Volquez starting this season.

    If we don't win 2 out of 3 here, it might be time to start asking other teams what they'll offer for EE/Bautista/Buehrle/Reyes (if the latter is even tradable).

    I like the pitching matchups, but the Jays need to get to these guys early and often. By the 6th inning you're gonna be facing an elite bullpen and the Jays aren't likely to win that battle if they're behind.

    If that happens we are 1 game under .500 and at worst 5.5 back of the division and 5.0 back of the wildcard. I don't think management should even be considering that until after the Oakland series, and the VERY earliest - if even then. This division is wide open and too vulnerable to give up right now, although I guess "asking" doesn't really hurt.

    And I believe Buehrle is very tradable right now - would cost them some cash going back but would net very little in return. But I believe teams would line up for him.

    Jays don't make any trades until last week of July, whether it's buying or selling.

    I think Jays sweep. I like the pitching matchups. Young and Volquez are due to regress a bit and I think this lineup can cause it.

    With this rotation I don't think there is really a 'fine' matchup.

    Bautista 66 walks this year most in AL.

    Where the hell is Buck? Holidays during ball season? What's the offseason for then? Cmon Buck.
