Toronto Blue Jays
Here comes Toronto. Four straight wins and seven of its last eight overall have it ahead of Oakland and four back of Boston (with Seattle in-between) in the American League Wildcard chase.
It’s now or never for the Blue Jays, who are set to face New York (which they trail by just 4.5 games) seven times in their final 27 games. They do not see Boston nor Seattle again, however.
Toronto’s rotation is already set for the four games in the Bronx. Hyun-Jin Ryu will start things on Labor Day Monday. He’s in the midst of yet another terrific season, his fifth in a row since missing nearly all of the 2016 season with a shoulder issue.
Ryu may not finish second or third in the Cy Young voting, as he has done in each of the last two seasons but he’s gunning for win number 13 on Monday and has a chance to log more innings this year than he has in any season since he threw 192 as a rookie in 2013.
It was 8–0 in the seventh inning when Robbie Ray handed the ball to Charlie Montoyo on Sunday so the Jays’ bullpen comes into this game fairly well-rested, though it did get a lot of action in the previous two games against Oakland over the weekend.
New York Yankees
The bullpens have been the Achilles’ heel for both of these teams and while Toronto’s relievers didn’t cost it any wins over the weekend, New York’s did.
After coming from behind in the ninth to tie the game and eventually beat Baltimore, 4–3, on Friday, New York blew leads on Saturday and Sunday, twice losing one-run games to the hapless Orioles.
Zack Britton is out and Aroldis Chapman has been shaky really ever since he allowed his first earned run late in May. Jonathan Loaisiga, who had been filling the vacuum in the ‘pen went on the 10-day Injured List this weekend with a rotator cuff.
That leaves the Yankees thin in the bullpen with one of the best offenses in baseball coming into town for four this week.
New York turns to Jameson Taillon, who, if not spectacular, has been surprisingly dependable as a starting pitcher this season.
After missing most of 2019 and all of 2020, Taillon has made all 26 starts in his first season as a Yankee. He will wind up with more innings pitched this season than any other in his career, save 2018 when he got nearly 600 outs.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: the Jays storm game one.
I like Toronto. It did have to travel right after its game on Sunday but at least it wasn’t coming from Oakland. The Jays are feeling good and the excitement of a September playoff chase will provide them with all the alertness they will need here.
Then there’s the pitching. Somehow, I like Toronto’s more than New York’s at the moment, at least with Ryu on the bump.
Priced as a solid underdog, Toronto is the play.
