MLB Thursday with Joe Wiz: red-hot Toronto Blue Jays look to chase down New York Yankees for AL Wild Card
What happened to all the talk from the New York Yankees' fans about winning the AL East?
That 13-game winning streak against the underbelly of the American League has just about been counteracted by the Yankees' play since: they are 2-8 in their last 10, and come into the massive series with the surging Blue Jays on a five-game losing streak.
Toronto has gone the other way: winners of seven in a row, and 9-1 in its last 10. The Blue Jays can pass the Yankees in the Wild Card standings soon: after the final game of the series tonight with the Yankees, Toronto heads to Baltimore for four games.
The Blue Jays have won the first three games in New York, and are 9-6 on the season against the Yankees. Toronto can't sweep here, right?
