As friendly reader Phil points out, Brett Cecil's turnaround has been lost in the mix here. He had an awful stretch in June, but has now worked 21 consecutive games without having allowed a run. In those 18 1/3 innings, he's only allowed 15 baserunners (0.82 WHIP) while having 19 strikeouts and three walks.
They still have seven games left with the Yankees and plenty of time to take back the lead. Or be buried.
Chris Colabello is hitting .325 and gets no attention. Russell Martin has a .333 OBP with 15 homers and I didn't mention him above. Devon Travis would be a Rookie of the Year frontrunner if not for injury and the presence of Carlos Correa. This is just such a stacked offense.
If they get past the wild-card round, they're a pretty dangerous ballclub in October. They have to get there first, though. For the record, I think they will, and this ranking doesn't feel high enough. We just have to see if the success is sustained or short-lived.
Troy Tulowitzki's a big upgrade both offensively and defensively over Jose Reyes. His defense alone will help the pitching.
Jose Bautista joins Joe Carter and Carlos Delgado as the only Blue Jays with 20-plus homers in six straight seasons. Remember when he was a flash in the pan, according to some?
They've only won two series since their 11-game winning streak.
A rental in the rotation would be nice, considering the youngsters -- including the injured Marcus Stroman. Johnny Cueto? Jeff Samardzija? Scott Kazmir? Mat Latos?
So Marco Estrada takes a no-no into the waning innings in two straight starts, but then lasts only 2 1/3 innings his next time out. Say it with me: Baseball is funny.
We already know all about how fun it is to watch this team hit, but don't turn the channel in the late innings when 20-year-old rookie Roberto Osuna is on the hill. Kid is nasty.
