Bo had two games in a row of good at bats so hopefully that’s a sign he is waking up.  The offense is a huge problem right now but they are winning on some timely hitting (albeit not with RISP) and sensational pitching.

Jays have faced mostly playoff contending teams with really good pitching, so some offensive struggles are to be expected. That they're still winning is a good sign. The bats should star to be able to put up the big numbers once they start to get to face some lesser competition, but more than holding their own against the best in the AL is a very encouraging.

No doubt.  Gausman/Manoah/Berrios look like a top 3 that contenders put out on the mound.

Springer might be good.

Gausman might be good.

I’m not one to sit here and blame umpires but my god are these guys arrogant asshats. Two blatant missed calls. There were 5 outs that inning.

yeah, I could almost give them the missed first base out, but Vladdy definitely tagged that guy running down between third and home. I thought NHL reffing was bad........

Katoh grabbed off waivers by the Mets.

Toronto sports teams waiver wire claims goes up by one.

The Jays offence is a problem but MLB producing a dead ball is just so unbelievably tone deaf.  They really suck at improving their product. 

Between the constant umpire show on a nightly basis and offence being down more than a half run a game I'm really struggling to pay as much attention.

If you’re down about the Leafs as a franchise, consider this point of pride in Texas. Franchise high-water mark.

The Jays have two catchers. One is slashing .297/.374/.422, the other is slashing .289/.347/.778.

Their top prospect is a catcher at AAA. He's slashing .331/.388/.424.

Interesting position to be in.
