We have finally arrived at the final series of the regular season. The Blue Jays will finish out the year by playing the Tampa Bay Rays, who still have a lot of play for. Cleveland looks to be falling out of the race (you love to see it) but home field for the wild card game is up for grabs.

It sounds like Justin Smoak will get a chance to play one more time at the Rogers Center, if it is his last time. #ExtendSmoak
