Things are tight in the American League East and made tighter by the fact that the Yankees are still in this too. Odds are they can’t really win with all those rookies are playing but so far the results have been positive.
Toronto looks like the team that could go on a run and create some separation but it hasn’t happened yet.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays are winning series but the bats are not what they need.
Not having Jose Bautista in their lineup is hurting for sure but there are just too many at bats from the likes of Justin Upton and Justin Smoak ending in a strikeout.
If you haven’t noticed 2B Devon Travis has arrived. After battling injuries to start his career he has earned his spot at the top of the lineup and is batting .333 over the past month.
In know that in an advanced metrics world wins are not what they used to be in terms of measuring pitchers but Happ is 16-3 this season with a sub 3 ERA.
He is no Kershaw but I think he should be at the top of the AL Cy Young debate. Since the All-Star break he has an AL best ERA of 1.47 and has been nearly unhitable.
Helping matters is the fact that the Jays bullpen has gotten better every month.
New York Yankees
A lot of the faces are new but the Yankees are playing some good ball right now.
They still have a few vets in the form of Jacoby Ellsbury and Mark Teixeira but my guess is that you do not know a lot about Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez or Tyler Austin.
Up the middle is where vets like Didi Gregorious and Starlin Castro are holding things down. The Yankees may or may not be good but it is kind of exciting.
In the rotation they are still trotting out CC Sabathia, partly because they are paying him so much and partly because they do not have anyone better.
Every once in a while he looks like his former self but mostly you are getting 6IP and 4ER. Sometimes that is a winning formula.
In the bullpen only Dellin Betances remains.
He is awesome but the bridge to get there is bumpy.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Look for the Jays to be the favourite on the road in this one. They are 18-5 when he starts and 7-0 in his last seven starts. A little more offense would help but it is not absolutely necessary if he is on.
The Yankees are definitely going to be a hard handicap the rest of the way.
They might continue their solid play but I think they could also lose 13 of 15. You might want to steer clear.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto RL
I see the Jays at about -130. Not bad but not great value. Against a lefty they are very familiar with I think we will see the offense come alive.
Making the run line the best option.
