The Blue Jays continue winning, no matter who their opponent is.
This incredible stretch started with a three-game sweep over the Oakland A’s and continued into New York with a massive four-game sweep over the New York Yankees. Toronto then went into Baltimore and won three of four against the Orioles, scoring about a million runs in the process.
After that was a series against the American League-leading Tampa Bay Rays, an opponent that makes even the most optimistic Blue Jays fan a little nervous.
I remember coming out of the Yankees series and looking at the schedule ahead and thinking okay, if the Blue Jays take care of business and kick the shit out of Baltimore and Minnesota, they can afford to go, like 1-6 in their remaining games against Tampa. There are still four games left to play against the Rays at The Trop, which is a whole different animal, but Toronto taking two of three in that series is a huge win, one that really proved that they’re legit.
