Toronto Blue Jays
Overall, the Blue Jays have had a decent year, but a lot of people had them being better than what they currently are.
They are 4th in the American League East with a record of 48-44. The Red Sox lead them by 8 games.
Toronto got swept by the Red Sox in a 2 game set this week. Boston beat them 7-4 on Wednesday. In that series, the Blue Jays scored 8 runs and allowed 20 runs.
Robbie Ray went 5 innings and allowed 4 earned runs on Wednesday.
Steven Matz has done a good job this year as far as wins and losses, but he has an ERA that is over 4. He would like to be much lower. His last start was against the Rangers on Sunday where he went 5 innings and did not allow an earned run. The Blue Jays won that game 10-0.
Pitching for this team has gotten better as the year has gone on. They have an ERA of 4.03 which is 12th best in the game.
Their offense is one of the best in baseball. They are scoring 5.18 runs per game which is 3rd best in baseball. Some key hitters in their lineup are Vladamir Guerrero Jr., Marcus Semien, Bo Bichette, and Teoscar Hernandez.
This team really relies on the home run ball. They have hit the most in the league with the number sitting at 144.
New York Mets
The Mets continue to have a good season. They have won 3 of their last 4 games.
They still remain 1st in the National League East with a record of 50-43. They lead the Phillies by 3.5 games.
New York took 2 out of 3 games against the Reds this week. New York won 7-0 on Wednesday. In that series, the Mets scored 22 runs and allowed 15 runs.
Marcus Stroman went 8 innings and only allowed 1 hit.
Tylor Megill has not been in the rotation for that long, but so far he has been good. His last start was against the Pirates on Saturday where he went 6 innings and did not allow an earned run. The bullpen for New York ended up blowing this game and the Pirates won this game 9-7.
The pitching for this team has been very good so far. They have an ERA of 3.49 which is 5th best in baseball.
For a good part of this year, the Mets offense has really struggled to score runs, but they seemed to figure some things out in the Cincinnati series.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This Blue Jays need to get back on track if they wish to gain any ground in their division. This series against the Mets is by no means going to be easy, but I do think they can take game 1.
Toronto has more talent, but the Mets have played better this year. I do look for the Blue to look good in this one.
I definitely think that Steven Matz can pitch well against his former team. Megill has been good so far, but he will have his hands full against this Jays lineup. I look for Toronto to hit him around well enough to get a win.
I will lay the -116 with the Jays in this one.
