I'm not trying to get behind either of these pitchers, but once again, the Toronto Blue Jays are a young talented team that's still playing hard and hoping to finish the season strong. The Baltimore Orioles have checked out a while ago and a lot of their games aren't even competitive. Give me the team that still enjoys coming to the ballpark and is trying to build positive vibes as we head into next year.
