The key team in all of this might just be the Toronto Blue Jays. Starting tonight, the Yankees play the Blue Jays 13 times from here until the end of the season. And, Boston has to play them 7 times. Toronto is trying to get into the AL East race as well. So, they will be up for these games.
When it’s all said and done, it will be interesting to see how New York and Boston did with these Toronto games – and how it impacts the final standings.
After tonight, we’ll have the final tally.
The Jays went just 4-9 against the Yankees in those 13 games. But, so far, they’re 3-3 against the Red Sox – with one game left (this evening).
On the whole this season, Toronto went 6-12 versus New York and is 11-6 against Boston (to date).
Both pitchers for the Jays-Sox game slated at Fenway tonight have struggled this month. It could be one of those softball-score-affairs. Yankees fans can just cross their fingers and hope that Toronto can win just one more against Boston this season.
