Week in Review

Out of contention themselves, the Jays managed to deal some blows this week to a couple of teams that are still trying to climb back into the race. Aided by strong pitching (a rarity this year) and perhaps a bit of luck (they went 4-2 despite being outscored) Toronto managed to take 2 of 3 [...]
