It’s a season that’s moved Toronto fans to sing their team’s praises… especially last night, after the Blue Jays clinched the American League East division title… for the first time in 22 years. Wilson has kept the ball in the park in all but one trip to the mound this season, but he has allowed two walks in each of his last four outings. Officials had switched the game time from 7:05 p.m. local time to 12:05 to take advantage of an alleged rainless period, but midway through the first inning, the forecast proved egregiously flawed. “If you are a Blue Jays fan, stand on your feet right now!” While securing that home field advantage would have real benefits, those would only show themselves in a very exact situation.

BALTIMORE-It has become clear that the most interesting game remaining in the Blue Jays season will be the simulated game at Tropicana Field on Friday afternoon featuring David Price and Troy Tulowitzki. Starters Jose Bautista, Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion sat out. And if they win five more games, they’d be up by three and Price is still there. “When you get to this point in the season… if you can give those guys a day off or a couple days off, it goes a long ways”.
“We’ve got a few guys who have been great players in this league that never experienced post-season”, Gibbons said, leaning on a cooler full of beer in the clubhouse, watching the hijinks of his players from a safe distance that did not require the wearing of goggles.
