This is unreal, Happ and Sanchez up next! Feels like we four Aces... we do have four Aces! If we can continue to hit this could be a lot of fun.

The boos rained down on Bautista but Joey Bats silenced the crowd with a three-run homer in the ninth inning with the Jays already leading by a wide margin.

Bautista ties Joe Carter for most home runs in the post season.

Starting pitcher Marco Estrada joins an elite group of Jays pitchers Dave Stieb & David Cone, as only the third Blue Jays starter to go more than eight innings in allowing one run.

According to ESPN, the Jays are the third team in MLB playoff history to win the first game of a best-of-five series on the road in scoring more than nine runs.

Great job, guys!

GO JAYS GO!!!

Maybe it's because this is a daytime series, but it doesn't seem like there is as much interest in the Jays as there was last year, social media seems to be significantly quieter.

Last year: huge momentum from wiping the floor with the Yankees to clinch the division and playoff berth.

This year: dropping a 5 game lead on Boston to narrowly squeak into the wild card after a dreadful September swoon.

Its best if we put Texas away as quick as possible.  They have a bad Odor.

Last year had novelty of "the drought is over" storyline. This year was the high expectation year that kind of fell short. The hospitals were overrun with twisted ankles from people hopping off the bandwagon late in the year.

I don't know. Those are just my reasons for not caring that much about this year. My social media friends are still pretty into it. Lots of attendees on weeknights throughout the year. Edwin love during the wild card draw was huge.

I think a lot of that just is the product of last year they broke a 22 year playoff drought(and really, 22 years without playing meaningful September baseball).

Teams who make the playoffs with some frequency don't get crazy worked up over doing it. It was like that with the Leafs too.

I think it'll pick up. As others have said, that initial rush from having a meaningful September and making the playoffs for the first time in 22 years isn't there this year, and they also weren't the same awe-inspiring offensive juggernaut they were last year. I imagine things will pick up a fair bit on Sunday when the Jays are back in town.

Social media may be quieter but TV ratings and attendance have been great this season.

Whoa Blue Jays!  They've certainly made a mess of Texas' pitching.  And how! 

Plus, another pitching gem this time from ace J.A. App, with Osuna closing out.

The Jays with a 2 games to 0 lead in this best-of-five ALDS, have a chance to win it all in Game 3 at home.

GO JAYS GO!!

Back-to-back in Texas during afternoon work hours. Sunday night at the Roger's Center is going to be insane.
