Okay, give the Blue Jays some credit. They did what they had to do. They avoided a virtually insurmountable task of falling behind and having to overcome the Royals and a 3-0 deficit. They did it in Toronto style scoring eleven runs. Not to be missed is the fact that the Royals scored eight runs and pounded Toronto pitching.
But the real question is this……do you see the Blue Jays scoring 11 runs (per) over the next few games? On the other hand, do you see them winning any of these games by a score of 3-2 or 4-3. Not gonna happen. Close games are won or lost by the bullpens. In that regard, can you even name the Blue Jays closer?
So despite last night, small ball will win this Series. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
