Jose Bautista will fully break out and the new bullpen arms will be tested every night of this series. Ryan Tepera, Steve Delabar and the rest should finally solidify things and allow John Gibbons to use them freely and without question. Will Russell Martin swinging a hot stick and Edwin Encarnacion starting to come around, Joey Bats is due to break-out in a big way.

The Orioles are not going anywhere and Buck Showalter will make sure of that. The Orioles have a vastly under-performing rotation thus far, and they are due to rebound soon. The first game of the series begs to an Orioles win but look for the Blue Jays to ride a hot Aaron Sanchez and coming into form Mark Buehrle to a couple more wins…Jays taking 2 of 3…ain’t bad.
