Thank Goodness for Baltimore

Finally the AL East schedule works in favour of the Toronto Blue Jays.

After Sunday afternoon’s 10 – 1 blowout of the Orioles, the Jays climbed two games above .500, at 47-45.

Other Seasonal Stats

* Jays are 9 – 0 against the Orioles

* They have scored 48 runs (5.33 per game) and allowed only 16 (1.77)

* The Jays now have a 17 – 16 record vs the AL East

Preface: Jays have stepped up and won their games against the O’s (something that Boston hasn’t: 6 – 6 record).

2010 Season Outside of Baltimore

* 38 – 45 record

* 373 Runs Scored : 396 Runs Allowed

* AL East Record: 8 – 16

For the season the Jays are 13 – 10 vs the Central, 10 – 8 vs the West and 7 – 11 vs the NL.

So how good are the Jays? Are they the:

* Slightly above .500 club that their overall record indicates?

* A sub .500 club that can’t hang with the big boys of the AL East (NYY, BOS, TAM)?

* A .500 level club that is contending for a playoff spot in other divisions?

* A sub .500 club that would have a hard time in the AL Central, West & NL?

* Somewhere in-between?
