Player to Watch

Well there is probably not much to watch at this point but as stated before, but Edwin is three homers shy from 40 and making some history in the process. There isn’t much else to look for other than the team trying to lock up home field advantage throughout the entire playoffs. If you think they will take a breather now like the rain-soaked game yesterday then you will be sorely mistaken. Also, look for Mark Buehrle to go long in the first game to give him a shot at coming out of the pen on Sunday to reach 200 innings pitched for the 15th straight season. I hope he gets there. Class act all the way.

Prediction

Tough to say. I was hoping the jays would finish with 96 wins to finish up 30 games over .500 but that went out the window with the two losses in Baltimore. I see a sweep. They will need some rythym going into the post season so there will be no taking any more days off. If they can beat Archer the way they did at Rogers Centre then a sweep is definitely a possibility. Why not? 95 wins…here they come.
