Beginning this weeked the Jays have a nice run at home to try and bridge the thinning gap between them and Boston and Baltimore.
Seattle is hanging in there in the West but unless they get some reinforcements it does not look like they will be able to challenge Texas or Houston.
This might be a series that determines whether they sell off a little bit.
Seattle is likely out of the race, they just don’t know it yet.
They have a super tough stretch coming up starting with road trips to Toronto and then on to face the Pirates and the Cubs on the road. Not the best schedule for the surge they need before the trade deadline.
Bet you probably didn’t know it but this team has hit more homers than the Blue Jays thus far this season. Nelson Cruz and Robinson Cano are having nice seasons.
Hisashi Iwakuma leads the M’s with ten wins but his numbers are up from what we have seen over the last couple of seasons.
This year, his best quality has been reliability, as the rest of the rotation has struggled with injuries.
His first start out of the break was fantastic as he dominated Houston in a 1-0 victory.
The bullpen is solid but they already sold off one of their most effective arms in Mike Montgomery.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays are looking a lot like the team that dominated in August and September and whether they make a move or not should be in the race the rest of the way.
If you are looking for a fearsome duo at the plate you can’t do better than Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion.
Double E leads the Majors in RBIs while 1st, 5th and 6th are Donaldson’s ranks in runs, homers and RBIs heading into Friday’s action.
Jose Bautista might be back Monday too.
Toronto leads the Majors in quality starts and most of the time R.A. Dickey delivers one. His lone outing since the All-Star Break was nothing special but once again he has proven to get better as the season progresses.
Since joining the team he has not fared well at the Rogers Centre and once again his numbers show a preference for the road.
The Jays bullpen is the weakest unit of the team beyond closer Roberto Osuna.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Mariners could be dangerous this weekend, especially if the players have that sense of their season being in the balance. Until they waive the white flag they are going to be a team to look closely at.
Toronto is playing well. Dickey is always unpredictable thanks to that knuckle ball but I am more concerned by the fact that only Encarnacion has really hit Iwakuma over his career.
The Jays will be the favourite but you might have to go run line for any value.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over
Look for a number around 9. Even thought the Jays have not hit Iwakuma hard in the past they are in good form.
Even if Dickey is sharp he always gives up a homer or two and Seattle has some boppers this season.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Toronto 6 – Seattle 4
