It is such an odd circumstance that some even refuse to accept it. Apparently, there are those who would question the intestinal fortitude of your Toronto Blue Jays. More specifically, some wonder if they have what it takes to beat the Yankees.

Well, after a winning series to start the year, a sweep in Yankee Stadium and a 3 for 4 series recently, that notion seems just downright silly. On Wednesday night, the two clubs wrapped up their season series. And, a quick look at the numbers shows just how one sided this matchup has been. The Blue Jays owned the season series by a wide margin: 12-5

But, if the simple head to head record isn’t enough for you, you should check out the breakdown that will convince you that the Blue Jays not only have the constitution, but the necessary talent to beat the Yankees. If it came to it in the playoffs, the Yankees would be at a distinct disadvantage. Whether it is on the mound, at the plate or in the field, the Blue Jays hold an edge. So, sit back, relax and get ready to brag to all your friends.
