5 reasons Blue Jays are toast, 5 reasons they’re not
FIVE REASONS THE JAYS ARE DONE
1. Royal Advantage
Remember when Blue Jays manager John Gibbons seemed indifferent to the notion of winning just one of the final two games of the regular season, even though it was clear what was at stake?
Remember the on-going narrative how this Jays team was built to thrive under its home dome?
Well how much would that home advantage help now? The Jays have to win two at Kauffman Stadium, a park that can mute the long ball and favour the attack employed by the Royals. As we saw in Game 5 on Wednesday, there can be magic on Blue Jays Way.
2. Will Price be Right?
All signs pointed to that being the case in Game 2 as Jays starter David Price retired 18 in a row after giving up a single to the first batter he faced. Price still had good stuff in the seventh but was small-balled to death and chased from the hill.
