    We should be better than 22-18 right now. I'd say that stat speaks more negatively about us than postively. If our bullpen figures it out like the offense seems to be doing we should be alright though.

    +/- is very volatile. one blowout game could put you on the top or last.

    That's kind of an over-exaggeration

    the reason i thought they were in first was because i was looking at the wild card leaders---without the division leaders-so without the division leaders we are first in baseball wooohooooo.

    As a team Toronto have a 0.265 BABIP, good for second lowest in the league. Based on this number alone I would expect the hitters to come round at some point soon. If this regresses to the mean, it may add 30 points to the batting average and OBP putting us in the upper echelons of hitting performance.

    That's not how BABIP works.

    The Jays have the lowest LD% of any team in the majors. They've also hit the 8th most flyballs, and the combination of these two means that the Jays should have one of the lower team BABIP's in the game.

    Some hitters should improve, but overall it won't lead the Jays to having 30 points of BABIP increasing.

    And while run differential is useful, over two months it can be easily influenced by a few lopsided games. What it does mean is that the Jays needed to be more proactive with getting rid of Lind, and hopefully demoting Thames and finding a more productive LF.
