Nice little turn-around, considering we are still short our two best all-arounders.
Toronto Blue Jays, Seattle Mariners and MLB discussion

Tulowitzki is projected to rejoin on Wednesday when the team is in Atlanta. Sanchez is expected to start tomorrow. Happ is still a ways away, nada on Donaldson.

The Jays did it again. First series sweep, three consecutive series wins, five straight game wins.
Kevin Pillar hit the walkoff HR in the 9th to end it. Sanchez was back and looked decent, though got in trouble a couple times.
17-21, .447, 7 games back.

The Jays bizarrely fell behind in the series with the Braves, taking only one out of four. Pitching was problematic for most of it except for today. Stroman was excellent on the mound, and belted his first career HR during one of his at bats. Maile hit a homer just before Stroman. Also, Ceciliani (a minor call-up) hit a solo HR which dislocated his shoulder.
Last night was controversial for a few reasons. One, multiple Braves hitters were hit by Jays pitchers. Unlikely intentional, particularly as pitching as all round poor before today. Kevin Pillar uttered an unpleasant word after striking out, which after much outcry has netted him a 2-day suspension (started today, back on Saturday). And Jose Bautista hit a solo HR and flipped his bat, to more hue and cry over his sportsmanship. Granted, given the circumstances (HBPs, Kevin Pillar, behind on the score) the bat flip wasn't timely. It earned him an HBP early in today's game, which he took with grace.
18-24, .429, 8 games back. Three games in Baltimore starting tomorrow.

Bizarre game hosting the Reds tonight. Tonight was a Jays hit-fest helped with a comedy of opposition defensive errors and questionable pitching. And a botched rundown. And a balked run.
Final score was 17-2. The team collectively batted .500 with 23 hits, and only Kevin Pillar was hitless (his hitting ability has seemed somewhat diminished following his suspension, dunno if there's anything to it). Tulowitzki smacked a grand slam. Overall a fun game to watch.
24-27, .471, 6.5 games back. They are climbing.

Two weekends from now is the big Canadian road trip to see them play the lowly Mariners. Should be something to see.
