What's left to say about these Toronto Blue Jays? Could anyone predict they'd be this good, considering the line-ups they've been runnin' out there? Absolutely remarkable. The trend looks set to continue, too, with Seattle sending a drywaller and two baristas to the bump o'er the final three games. Tough not to like their chances going forward. Now, then, open the roof by gum and let the fresh air / sunshine in.

In Case You Missed It: Naoko Asano (RSN) ran a short piece re. Toronto's rising prospect stock per Baseball America's latest rankings. It's certainly worth a look.
