The Toronto Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals face off on Friday in Toronto for game one of their weekend series.

The Toronto Blue Jays spent big money last offseason to beef up their roster but all they have to show for it is a big payroll and a last place status in the standings. The Blue Jays are 3-7 in their last 10 games, 33-33 at home this season, and they are 19 games back in the AL East standings. As a team the Blue Jays are hitting .253 with Jose Reyes hitting .293, Adam Lind hitting .281, and Colby Rasmus hitting .273. The Blue Jays pitching staff has an ERA of 4.39 with the starters at 5.04 and the bullpen at 3.35. For game one against the Royals Toronto stats mark Buehrle who has won his last five decisions. For the season Buehrle has allowed 183 hits and 78 earned runs while striking out 118 over 172 innings for a 10-7 record and a 4.08 ERA.

The Kansas City Royals have won in bunches and lost in bunches and while they are a better team than they were a year ago they still have work to do to become a contender. The Royals are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 34-31 on the road, and they are 8.5 games back in the AL Central standings. As a team the Royals are hitting .261 with Billy Butler hitting .295, Eric Hosmer hitting .294, and Salvador Perez hitting .283. The Royals pitching staff has an ERA of 3.52 with the starters at 3.95 and the bullpen at 2.59.

We have two pitchers who have been around the block and look for these two to keep this one under the total. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will give out that winning pick in the Premium Area.
