#43 - Toronto Slumping Jays (21-21) at New York Mets (20-18)

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | 1:10 pm | Citi Field, Flushing, NY
J.A. Happ (4-3, 4.80) vs. Zack Wheeler (2-2, 5.03)


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!"


As of the 7th inning of today's game:

GP: 34
PA: 157
BA: .418
OBP: .464
SLG: .701
OPS: 1.165
RS: 31
HR: 7
RBI: 40
SB: 1
K/BB: 14/13


Russell Martin checked off another tick on his bucket list as he played at shortstop for the first time in his major league career in last night's game.

Apparently Danny Barnes has been called up while Deck McGuire has gone down.

That's it for now, folks.  When the Jays actually do wake up from their stupor, then I'll add more content to discuss!  The Jays don't deserve content until they win!
