Grease Review

The Blue Jays pitching their way to the playoffs

The Toronto Blue Jays are stuck in a race and are struggling to stay in it. They currently are in the wild card spot with Baltimore hot on their heels. Earlier this season the Jays were in the top of their division; the American League East. Lately though, they have been struggling to remain in playoff contention.

This season has been fairly successful for the Blue Jays. Their record is 87-70 currently. In pre season the coach said “This group looks different than previous years”. Through the 162 game season we have all been awaiting the postseason, and it’s almost here.

Last year, the Blue Jays beat the Texas Rangers but in the next round lost to the Kansas City Royals, the Royals went on to win the World Series. This year the Blue Jays are looking for more; that is if they can make it into the playoffs. The last day of the regular season is on October 2nd and we will have to wait until then to see if the Jays can pull through and get into the playoffs.

Now all we can do is cross our fingers and hope that the Toronto Blue Jays can pull through in this last week. If Jays fans are lucky maybe they’ll go on to win the World Series!
