Trends will be updated once they’ve been released.
The Blue Jays burned me yesterday as I kept thinking Toronto needs wins with the playoffs in sight and the Yankees on deck and then they go and lose to Boston. Well I’m not giving up faith just yet. Andrew Triggs hasn’t been good giving up six runs in 3.1 innings this season as well as three runs in three innings this past Wednesday. Robbie Ray looks a bit settled with Toronto and this young and powerful lineup behind him and I just think that sparks Ray’s confidence enough to help him lead Toronto to a win here.
