Have to give the Jays credit, they're finding new and exciting ways to lose 1 run ballgames. They're really exploring the studio space.

Fourth loss in five games.  This is September.  While everyone else is shoring themselves up, the Blue Jays are free-falling.

Poor base-running, weak offence or clutch hitting, defensive miscues, blah, blah, blah.   Sure the Jays lost by close scores, still, the simple fact remains, they lost.

Now that the Red Sox have tied them for the A.L. East lead, and the Orioles & Yankees making a grab for it as well, the real race has begun...

C'mon Blue Jays, get going!

THE SKY IS FALLING! It truly is, this awful streak just keeps going and going. We all know their not this bad but COME ON, SNAP OUT OF IT!

6 man rotation? Looming contracts? Don't care... figure it out.

Strange isn't it?  How the Blue Jays are floundering at a time when other teams are ramping up their game.  Obviously, as this team has been winning and doing well for most of the the season until now, one can't say that the Blue Jays have 'run out of gas'.  Or, have they?

With the Jays' 8-1 loss to Anaheim last night,  they are now 3GBL in the A.L. East, tied with Baltimore.  Wild Cardrace also has the Jays and the Orioles deadlocked for top spot.

Worth noting: if playoffs were to be played now, Jays & Orioles would face-off in a sudden-death game (to determine A.L.Wild Card winner), and the winning team would get to face the Texas Rangers.

The pressure on the Blue Jays is enormous and every single game from here on in counts, loss or win, either way will make or break their hopes to overtake a Boston team that's ressembling last season's Jays.

GO JAYS GO!!

Do we really think this is Gibby's fault?

I really have never been a big supporter of Gibbons so I'm really not going to go out of my way to defend him, and I'm not.

If there is anyone I would be pointing a finger at it might be the hitting coach.  The Jays have been pitched outside all year.  They aren't adjusting.  That's either a fault of the hitting coach to not find a strategy against it, or a guy who can't command enough presence to get the players to follow through on adjustments.

Yeah. Though, I do blame Gibby for not having the team start playing small ball more early in the season when it was already clear that they weren't going to power their way to wins in the same way as last season.

I was surprised to see they did not learn anything at all from the way they got rolled by Kansas in the ALCS.
