The Blue Jays have to play more consistent if they wish to gain ground in their division. I look for them to play well in this one.
Toronto has the better squad and they need to show that when playing teams like the Rangers.
Hyun Jin Ryu was very solid in his last start and I look for him to have another outing like that on Saturday.
I like the Blue Jays on the run line in this one.
