Both texas teams lose so jays are 1 up on the last wild card spot and .5 back of 3rd best record in the AL.
Brewers also lose so jays are 1 game back of 5th best record in mlb, and top 5 is where they should be on paper, tho they should be closer to the top 4 teams.
I think the AL at least is very very very wide open.Top 5 team in the league heading into the playoffs where often many things can happen... Am I wrong to not hate their chances?

Idk it seems like they actually built a solid team this year? I mean do you really blame them for some of their star hitters going to shit at random? Past years, I get it but if they finish in the top 5 after nearly everything went wrong with their studs it kinda supports that they built a damn good roster around their top talent.Eh, I'm not ready to get on that train. I still see a team that is a super distant 3rd in run differential in their own division and 8th in the AL (12th in MLB). I'm not too horny on them against the other playoff teams in SP matchup either given that it's easily the strength of this team (though a few injuries seem to be helping that out). I've got the Jays rotation at maybe 3rd best in the AL after Minnesota & Seattle though I think we're a toss up with Tampa (even with McLanahan dying) and we're pretty mediocre offensively overall.
But I don't think my assessment would surprise anyone, it hasn't changed.
