Jays 5 @ Yankees 4

Fine, hard-fought, back n' forth game. Both starters were solid. Jays managed the winning run in the top of the 9th against Yankee closer Robertson.

On the bad news front, Edwin Encarnacion had a set-back in his rehab of a hamstring.

But it sure is sweet to win a series in Yankeeland.

Now to Beantown and hope the Sox are still reeling.

Jays 14 @ Bosox 1

A week to the day after Boston humiliated the Jays 14-1 in TO, the bluebirds returned the favour in Beantown.

The Melk-man delivered bigtime, as he has done since Spring Training, clobbering a couple of home runs, including one that left Fenway.

The Jays traded C Eric Kratz and RHP Liam Hendriks from their Triple A affiliate in Buffalo for Royals 3rd baseman Danny Valencia. Valencia adds some right-handed pop, something the Jays have missed terribly with EE and Lawrie out.

Quietly, the Jays are 8-3 since the break.

No complaints from this corner.

Jays 4 @ Red Sox 2

Ho-hum. Another great start from the kid, Stroman - going 7 strong. A couple of timely hits, solid D and the Jays have won their 4th straight series with a chance to air out the brooms in Beantown tomorrow.

Jays 6 @ Red Sox 1

Mark Buerhle finally nails win #11, the Jays sweep and the plane ride to Houston had to be a fun one.

The team is focused again. Everybody is playing unselfishly. Long may it last.

Jays 6 @ Astros 5

An exciting, see-saw affair with the Jays pulling out another 9th inning win - their 6th win in a row on this trip - despite a poor, 3-inning outing from Hutchison.

The Jays whacked 4 solo dingers - 2 from Reimold and singles from Bautista and Navarro.

Alex Anthopolous stayed pat at the deadline, disappointing Bautista, Janssen and probably a few other Jays and many of their fans. Not this one though. I like this team. They've battled a lot of adversity, going back to last season, as well as this one. And I think the late, supposedly-minor additions of Reimold and Valencia will turn out to be astute moves. They've already made contributions.

As with any team, the pitching will tell the tale. I think adding a healthy Morrow to the bullpen could do much to solidify that area.

Anyhow, the Jays are a fun team to watch and it's looking like they'll play meaningful games late in the season for the first time in ages.

Savor this season. The two most enjoyable rooting situations for your team are:
A) The first time they are competitive
B) They become competitive again for the first time after a long period of being bad or mediocre.

You have to have that underdog mentality to truly appreciate winning and the Jays are in the position that the Pirates were in last season, the Orioles were in it in 2012.

My favorite Giants year wasn't any of their championship teams or WS teams, it was 1982 when after a lengthy period in the doldrums, the Giants surprised by being in the race right down to the final weekend.


Anyway, you guys have a three game wild card lead over another team that is also being competitive for the first time in ages...KC.

Buena suerta.

Jays 1 @ Astros 3

Didn't see much. Had company (non-ball fans) last night. Seems both starters pitched well but Aaron Loup ran into trouble in the 8th.

Can't win 'em all.

@ Grandstander: Yeah, I'm enjoying the heck out of GamesThatMatter in Aug/Sept.

Jays 2 @ Astros 8

Got whupped real good.

The Astros have something special with Altuve. I dunno his contract status but if they haven't locked him up, they're nuts. You can build a team around this guy.

Astro fans saw lots to like tonight. This is a team that could make some noise - soon.

Jays have turned tomorrow's game into a must-win.

Pretty much.

Ish.

Cliches. Godblessem'.

Where would sports be without them?

Jays 1 @ Astros 6

Feh.

Stroman had nada and the Jays left lots of runs on base. Again.

Astros deserved all three wins.

Looking forward to a day off before hosting the Orioles.

Orioles 9 @ Jays 3

When your pitching staff gives up 14 hits and 8 walks, you're not gonna win many games.

Ugly.

Just butt-ugly.
