There isn’t much for Jays' news today.
Starters for the Angels’ series are set:
- Friday: Mitch White vs. Reid Detmers
- Saturday: Alek Manoah vs. Shohei Ohtani
- Sunday: Ross Stripling vs. Tucker Davidson
If you want a laugh at the Yankees’ expense:

Today’s lineup. George Springer makes it into the lineup for the third straight day, which almost seems like some sort of record for the season. He’s having a great August, hitting .552/.581/.724 and has a hit in his 8 games.
Raimel Tapia, Danny Jansen and Santiago Espinal each get a start. Espinal’s been hitting well of late, the other two not.

FanGraphs has the Jays at a 95.7% chance of making the playoffs. I wish I was that confident, but until they clinch, I’m not going to feel confident. They are so hot or cold this year. When they are playing well, they can beat anyone. When they aren’t, I figure I could find 9 guys in my neighbourhood who could sweep them in a 4-game series.
Let’s have a poll:
How confident are you that the Jays will make the playoffs?
