    Fun stat:

    Players that have had a 40 homer season by age 22. Mel Ott, Joe DiMaggio, Eddie Mathews (twice) Johnny Bench, Juan Gonzalez, Alex Rodriguez, Bryce Harper, Ronald Acuna Jr, Fernando Tatis Jr, Vlad Guerrero Jr.

    Thatís basically a HOF list for all the retired players.

    Bo had a disgraceful game at the plate. Kirk has been freezing cold. George still canít hit either.
    its more like the Yankees handed the Jays an opportunity, they were 4 games up on the blue Jays, in the middle of september. and then lost 7 in a row. Which put the Jays in the drivers seat. all this week has done is hand the hammer back to the yankees.

    the Yankees final 10 games were 4 against Boston on the road, 3 against the Jays in the road,
    and 3 at home against the Devil Rays. thats a killer schedule so if the Blue Jays fail to make the playoffs its 1000 percent on the Jays..... I dont see how anyone can say otherwise

    Obviously they jays needed to go on a run and they did, but it definitely needs to be said that without that stretch from the Yankees we are still not in it.

    The major shame would be if we miss the WC, and then come back next season with a weaker team.

    It all goes both ways. Yankes wouldn't have built such a lead if the Jays didn't have their rough patches too.

    So win today and we're only down 1 game no matter what. Gotta take your fate into your own hands. I'm routing for the Sox. That way, if we win today, and win 2/3 against the Yanks, we'll go into the series with Baltimore tied for the spot.

    It'll come down to whoever wins the series between us and the Yankees. Whoever wins that series probably will make the playoffs.

    exactly, they have to earn it, and you know what thats exactly how it should be.

    when you have the advantage going into the final 10 days of the season you should win your way in....not back your way in because your competition handed you a spot through incompetence


    my first season as a fan was as an 10 year old and the Mets went 38-11 a .756 winning percentage to finish the final 6 weeks. I realize thats not typical but I dont think a .600 is too much to ask for over the stretch run. especially with the Orioles and Twins (a combined 119-193) .381 making up the crux of the schedule.

    We'll see, Boston having flashbacks of a complete meltdown just a few years ago.
