Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays never play well against Tampa and took just one of three over the weekend against the Rays. With Boston losing they head into Labour Day with just a one game lead over the Red Sox.
The offense was really quiet this weekend but the juices should get flowing with the team in New York and the Yankees still a relevant opponent.
Josh Donaldson has positioned himself for a possible repeat as MVP with a strong finish.
The Toronto starting pitching has been underrated all season long.
This has not been a great season for R.A. Dickey but he has an important role to play on a team that is managing the innings for its young starters.
Dickey has strung together three consecutive good outings beginning with a start at New York a couple of weeks back.
Ironically he lost that game 1-0, a rare occurrence where this team comes up with nothing on offense.
New York Yankees
The Yankees just refuse to quit. They were having a tough weekend getting shutout twice by the Orioles but they closed with a win and now start a homestand with Toronto.
The last time they hosted the Jays they dropped two of three but the math says they are not out of it yet making this series a big one. This is a super young team so it has been amazing how they have held on.
They need someone other than Gary Sanchez to get hot though.
Masahiro Tanaka has been the lone bright spot in the Yankees rotation this season.
Not only that he has been closing strong – Just 2ER in his last 19 innings – making him a key to the Yankees staying in the race.
He has been much better on the road though, which is not a surprise as teams try and stock the lineup with as many lefties as possible when he is on the mound.
He is 1-1 against the Jays this season but both those games were at the Rogers Centre.

The Jays are going to be excited about getting away from the Rays. New York is the perfect place to get their bats going and Dickey is a nice foil for all of their young hitters. Take Toronto in the upset.
