Toronto Blue Jays – Draftboard Update – 22/09

Man, this reverse standings race is truly a turtle derby.  I think I missed four days of this series and only one team on the list won more games than they lost.

That little three game winning streak from the Mets has put them right back into the thick of things.  Where only three games separate positions seven through fourteen.

I think we can staple the Angels into fifteenth place and anywhere from Seattle, in sixth, and above as unreachable for the Jays.  Fortunately for Toronto, after a makeup date against the absolutely rubbish White Sox, they have three versus both the O’s and Rays.  Theoretically, both those teams could be playing for something real.  Making the games far more important to them than they are to Toronto.

Of the teams bunched together, only the Phillies seem to have a bit of a punching bag with three against the Marlins.  All the other teams are facing either playoff bound clubs or those that are fighting for their post-season lives.  Should be interesting:

1 HOU 156 51 105 0.327 0
2 MIA 156 57 99 0.365 6
3 CHW 155 61 94 0.394 10.5
4 CHC 156 65 91 0.417 14
5 MIN 155 65 90 0.419 14.5
6 SEA 156 68 88 0.436 17
7 MIL 155 69 86 0.445 18.5
8 COL 157 71 86 0.452 19.5
9 NYM 155 71 84 0.458 20.5
10 TOR 155 71 84 0.458 20.5
11 TOR Phil Bickford
