Player to Watch

Much has been made about the acquisition of Price and Tulowitzki but a big key to this deadline dealings in Mark Lowe. He got lit up in his first foray onto the mound as a Blue Jay but his 2015 credentials speak so much more. If he can continue the dominance he showed during the rest of the season he will be integral to the playoff hopes of the Blue Jays. If Roberto Osuna or Brett Cecil regress or get hurt, he may be looked to clean up and get a few saves while they recover. Mark Lowe could very well be this generation’s Duane Ward (look it up!).


The Twins will give the Blue Jays a tough time but as the confidence builds (especially in their home building) and the pitching starts to tighten up it will be shown this team is so very ready to take down all comers. The magic 8-Ball Hat tells me the Blue Jays will win the series 3-1. A sweep would be nice but, you know….Hutch…
