Congrats to the 2015 AL East champions! I was watching the post game celebration, and looked to be quite a party! They can party tonight, and I imagine quite a few regulars will be getting a well deserved and well earned Thursday off (even more so because of the 12:05 start), but on Friday it's back to work, and that work is getting home field advantage throughout the entirety of the playoffs since the AL will have games 1 & 7 at home.

As I said in the other forum, it really didn't sink in until I saw them celebrating in the locker room.

Default 92-66

Jays 15 @ O's 2 (1st)
Jays 1 @ O's 8 (2nd)

Yep, first game clinched the division and I suspect there'll be a few aching heads in the dugout this afternoon. Gibby apparently plans to play the same Toronto Bison squad in today's game that played the 2nd game last night. The only regulars in that game were Colabello and Dickey.

So, it's reasonable to expect another L today. But baseball's a funny game....

Kawasaki might have been the drunkest one of them all and he has to play.

Congrats Blue Jays! As a Rockies fan, hoping Tulo can help you in the playoffs.

Me too! They say he should play this weekend against the Rays. I do hope that the Blue Jays put the clinch behind them and get back to playing great baseball to (i) clinch home-field for the playoffs and (ii) build momentum going into the playoffs.

Jays 4 @ O's 6

Manny Machado hit two home runs to help the O's win the last game and earn a split of the 4-gamer. As expected, Gibby fielded the B team again. With the division clinched, he's got to balance giving the regulars a bit of a break while still keeping them sharp.

Off to Tampa for 3 to wind up what can already be considered a successful season.

Though not as successful as it might become....

I believe that it'll be back to the regulars tonight. Home-field advantage for the playoffs is still something they'll want to wrap up.

I'm not concerned about that so much. If the Jays make it to the Big Dance, they'll have to beat KC anyway to get there - if someone else hasn't already done so. That would make the Jays the home side in the WS anyway.

Admittedly, if they hook up with KC on the way, they'd have to win at least one in their yard.

I agree we'll see most of the regs in this final series but I have a hunch Gibby will sit Jose, Josh and Edwin for at least one of the games. (Not the same one.)
