Toronto has been looking pretty good so far this season. For Texas the jury is out. I am not going to be surprised if they finish the season with the worst record in the American League.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays have gotten off to a solid start, a pretty good one when you factor in their a missing George Springer, their leadoff hitter and Robbie Ray, their number two starter. They have yet to play a “home game” too.
Hyun-Jin Ryu looked sharp in the opener against the Yankees. He never looks like he is pitching that great but then he leaves the game after six innings and has only given up a couple of runs.
The Jays’ bullpen has been really good to start the year, second best in the Majors if you like to use WAR. They have given up a few to many walks but that is more a Rafael Dolis problem, than the whole group.
Having watched the Rangers a bit this definitely one of the worst lineups in the Majors. The only guy you really have to pitch carefully to is Joey Gallo and half the time he gets himself out. They are aggressive though so they might lead the Majors in steals if they can get anyone on base.
Kyle Gibson was terrible on opening day. He only got one out before he was yanked after giving up 5ER. The only upside is that he did not give up a homer. Three walks are nothing to be excited about but you have to think he is better in this spot.
So far Texas has the worst bullpen in the league. I am not expecting them to improve that ranking much throughout the season either. They only have one or two decent arms.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
The Jays are looking to close out this series with a win before kicking off their first homestand. Ryu gives them a great chance to do so and I will be fading Gibson until their is overwhelming evidence not to…I am not sure that is ever going to come.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Blue Jays Run Line.
There is not going to be any value with the money line here. Toronto is due for a break out with the bats and they will get it against Gibson and the rest of the Rangers. We won’t have to sweat out this one.
