#49 - Los Angeles Trouts of Anaheim in Orange County of California USA (26-22) at Toronto Blue Jays (23-25)
|Yep, their first ballpark in L.A. was indeed called 'Wrigley Field'|
Hooray, the Jays snapped an ugly losing streak last night by piling up five runs in the first inning and then fending off the Angels the rest of the way to hold on for a 5-3 victory. J.A. Happ turned in a sorely-needed excellent outing to record the victory and then Ryan Tepera and Tyler Clippard closed the door.
Aaron Sanchez is 0-1, 3.24 in two career starts against the Angels. His counterpart, Tyler Skaggs, is 2-2, 3.86 in four career starts against the Blue Jays.
Can the Blue Jays avoid getting bludgeoned right into the ground by a Trout-led squad hell-bent on securing revenge for last night's loss? Stay tuned!

Welcome to today's "Get it over with and go home" game threat for the Blue Jays as we watch them mail it in and get swept by the Mets! The Blue Jays have fallen to the .500 mark after last night's thumping and face the prospect of leaving NY at a game under .500, a mark they haven't been at since the calendar was still showing 'March'.
Quick, what's the number for Slumpbusters? "Who ya gonna call? Slumpbusters!"

|I know the game isn't at Fenway, but the principle stands|
Remember when many of us here were clamoring for some SP signings during the free agency period? Well, the cream of the free agent pitching class of 2017, namely Yu Darvish, Alex Cobb, Lance Lynn and Jason Vargas, have combined for a record of 1-13 with a 7.81 ERA. They're earning $57 million as a group this year. In that light, Jaime Garcia looks like an astute signing by Shatkins.
Your Blue Jays OPS+ leaders so far:
1. Luke Maile 156
2. Curtis Granderson 151
3. Kevin Pillar 138
4. Yangervis Solarte 121
4. Teoscar Hernandez 121
Donaldson is at 110 and Smoak is at 101, so considering the rotation woes and the slow start of these two, I'd say it looks pretty positive for the rest of the season as the rotation and Dosh won't be this underperforming all season.
Hands up if you called Maile, Grandy, Pillar and Solarte to all outperform Donaldson and Smoak so far. Yeah right, put yer hands down.
Curtis Granderson has come out with a cool shirt to raise funds for his Grand Kids foundation. Awesome idea.

From Kaitlyn McGrath at The Athletic: "I really like this robe": Marco Estrada remains sole devotee to the Blue Jays robes of 2015
Just makes today's pitching matchup all the more interesting knowing about this link between Estrada and Price.
