A sweep would be nice.
20 games left of this season. I’m sure I think this every year but the season has just rushed by.
FanGraphs has playoff odds back to 75.9%. I don’t truly believe that. But I do believe the series against the Rangers will have a big effect on the odds. Texas is 1.5 games back of the Jays at the moment after their win last night.
The pitching matchup for the Ranger series:

Monday: Chris Bassitt vs. Dane Dunning
Tuesday: Hyun Jin Ryu vs. Max Scherzer
Wednesday: Yusei Kikuchi vs. Jordan Montgomery
Thursday: Kevin Gausman vs. Nathan Eovaldi
Today’s Lineup. There is a lefty starter for the Royals, their best pitcher of late by far. But it doesn’t give us a clue on if Belt is back ready to play/
