With the Blue Jays just 5.5 games back in the Wild Card standings, it’s tempting to think that they still have a chance to http://www.jaysfanaticsjersey.com/michael-saunders-jersey-c-25.html
make a run at the playoffs this season. While it is statistically
possible, there are a lot of hurdles, including as many as seven teams
to leapfrog in order to qualify.
It’s a tall order, but it is statistically possible the Blue Jays to
make a run at the playoffs. I’ll admit, it feels unlikely, and even the
philosophy of the front office would indicate they believe the same,
albeit with optimism about next year. Forgive me if the image of Jim
Carrey from “Dumb and Dumber” comes to mind when we’re talking about
, but there is a lot of baseball left to be played.
The biggest problem for the Jays isn’t the 5.5 games that they need
to make up in the Wild Card race , but rather how many teams they need
to surpass in order to get there. As things stand as of this writing,
the Blue Jays have six teams between them and the Kansas City Royals,
who currently occupy the second Wild Card position.
The other teams include division rivals R.A. Dickey Jersey
Tampa Bay and Baltimore, as well as the Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles
Angels, Minnesota Twins, and Texas Rangers. At 52 59, there would have
to be an awful lot go the Blue Jays’ way for the remainder of the
season, but there are still plenty of reasons to keep tuning in this
season, contending of not.
