Blue Jays clinch first AL East crown in 22 years with rout of Orioles
Man oh man, the Blue Jays were due.
After a 22 year hiatus, the Toronto Blue Jays locked up a AL East Crown and a playoff appearance.
The top feels so much better than the bottom.
This has been a magical season with numerous ups and downs.
Kudos to their general manager, who's mid-season moves put this team in position for a monster run. Toronto was fourth in the AL East on the morning of July 29 with a 50-51 record, eight games behind the Yankees. But boosted by the acquisitions of David Price, Troy Tulowitzki, Ben Revere, LaTroy Hawkins and Mark Lowe, the Blue Jays won 42 of their next 56 games, outscoring opponents 342-200.
That is AMAZING. @mchlyang@jeff4122 looking at their roster and the run they are on, do you think the Blue Jays are now the favorites in the AL to go to the World Series?
